Well, to the argument, Elton Brand's corpse probably poses a bigger obstacle than little Brandon Knight.

Except for Brandon Knight was actually dunked ON because he was actually between Jordan and the basket to contest. Dre didn't dunk on Brand at all, he dunked past him and Elton clumsily feel down.

Brody I really like Dre and am not trying to kill his vibe but I feel like I'm taking crazy pulls here. It was a great overall play for a 7 footer but the dunk itself isn't nearly as good as you, prock, and the Pistons bench seem to think.

Ready yo watch this Kings/Celtics game.

I wonder if they would join Embiid with Cousins. That is a scary duo.

Moving Cousins from center would be pretty dumb. He'd think he is a stretch 4 and it would be so hilarious.

I don't agree. Cousins could play the 4. Both have the ability to be great passers and can work inside and out. This Kings team isn't going anywhere without a defensive presence. What happens if they add Parker? He is just an upgrade over Gay, who has played his best basketball for Sacramento. The upside to Embiid is much greater as far as the ultimate goal is concerned.

Of course, a lot of their future hinges on McLemore's development. And it doesn't seem they plan on keeping Thomas so it will be interesting to see what they end up doing at PG.

There is literally no shot that he can play the 4. At all. That thought is silly. It'd be a worse josh smith situation.

Parker could give them stretch lineups with him and cool.

Actually, exum would be an awesome fit with them. They need an identity.

He could play the 4.

I agree Exum would be an intriguing fit.

I think the way the draft will play out will keep us from needing this discussion. Embiid is going top three, and if we ended up in the top three we would easily prefer Parker or Wiggins. I love Embiid and what he does, and his amazing potential, but he absolutely would be an awkward fit for the Kings.

Firstly, Cousins isn't moving from the 5 on offense. It's just not gonna happen, especially not for a pretty raw player offensively like Embiid. Cousins is the best offensive 5 in the league that actually has the body size to play the 5 nightly. If you really tried you could make it work where Embiid played the 4 spot in the high post, but that's really a waste of his athletic advantage over opponents his size. Like I said, you could find ways to manage minutes and shift changes where you could make it work, but it's not natural at all. While he would be a great addition to the defense, it would create an equally if not more awkward situation on defense. If you shifted boogie to the 4 on defense, he would get ruined by small and quick 4s that can stretch the floor, effectively removing a top 3 rebounder in the world from the area where he can be most productive.

All in all, if we end up in a situation where we have to choose between Embiid and the field, I think we try to maneuver a trade. If we don't land one of the elite wings, we have to shift to either Exum or Smart. If that isn't a viable option I'd look to package the pick to bring in an established guy.

Yeah, no. Boogie at the 4 would be horrendous. On both sides of the court. On defense, they'd get destroyed by the quicker bigs and as sox said, you take boogie out of the paint where he's best. And on offense, that floor spacing would be awful. Having boogie off the block? Really? None of it makes sense even a little bit
