Does this count as part of Stew's Spectrum if it's just a fun clip of an Aggie great?

Today I think Giannis is better, but Luka will have several MVPs before he's done and may well be better in the long run.

But, Jaycee actually played with Luka, so I'd go with him.

(Side note: Trey Young is great, but it was insane to trade Luka for anyone...especially an undersized, if dynamic, PG.)

It to mention who Phoenix drafted at number 1. I told my buddy that Phoenix should draft luka over Ayton. Looks like I was right. 😉

Or Sacramento picking Marvin Bagley because Vlade Divac had a problem with Luka's father.

The Kings are truly one of the worst run organizations in sports. Luka is a generational talent that is going to own the 2020's. Phoenix, Sacramento and Atlanta will all regret their decisions for decades. Trae Young is good and the Hawks had a nice run last year, but he is no Luka. Hard to imagine Luka being as bad in a playoff series as Young was against the Heat this year.

Pretty rad that Jaycee got to play with him.

Two of my favorite sports teams are the Kings and the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’m thinking about getting into Australian Rules Football.

Yeah those are rough ones. Better become a West Coast Eagles fan to offset it.

You could pick a newcomer like West Coast, or you could roll with the original bad guys, the Collingwood Magpies. Footy is an AMAZING sport!

As a Hawks fan, I have to say that I will defend the trade. Yea, Luka is better than Trae but the Mavericks got a franchise player while the Hawks got a franchise player plus a top 10 pick.

The lottery and the selection itself (Cam Reddish) went poorly for the Hawks but if you play that trade out many times, I bet Trae + top 10 pick outstrips Luka in value more often than not.

I personally would have just drafted Luka but Trae has exceeded my wildest expectations. If you believed Trae would be this good, taking him plus a top ten pick makes sense.

We haven’t seen the end of this trade. The Hawks traded Reddish for a future late first. Yes, Luka is better than Trae but the Hawks got another incredibly valuable asset and no one talks about that.

LOL that legit made me laugh out loud, but if the lottery fell differently and the Hawks ended up with RJ Barrett instead of Cam Reddish, you wouldn't be saying this. Not to mention the fact that Grant Williams, Tyler Herro, PJ Washington, Cam Johnson, Jordan Poole & Brandon Clarke were all on the board when the Hawks selected. Trae plus any of those players is clearly superior to Luka. The problem was that the Hawks selected Cam Reddish--not the trade itself.

Fair enough. I just think Hawks fans will spend years rationalizing why choosing Young over Luka was the best option as Luka wins championships and MVPs. Young will have a great career, just won't be as good as Luka.

Take solace you aren't the Kings though. At least with Young you can rationalize picking Young. They will have to live with the Bagley pick as they continue to stay in the lottery while Luka is dominating.

Sure, but if you got a tubby girlfriend, don't try and convince me she is ana de armas. To bring this back to USU basketball, if you are a CSU fan Tubby Roddy is a good player, but don't tell me he is as good as Sam Merrill.
