Who do you agree with? Which argument is the most compelling?

When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this too may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!

Should he? Yes. Will he? Nope. Ja can change the entire flow of the team. Zion can't. Zion is a great player, but he can't open up the floor like a great point guard can. That said, Ja will need time to grow his game and be given talent around him to produce success. Anyway, just my opinion.

You are quite correct. We hear over and over from pundits and analylists that Zion represents guaranteed ticket sales, merchandise, and on-and-on.

We all hear that Phoenix will draft Ja. But, being drafted number 2 overall is a maginificent feat.
The world will once again hear "Murray State University" on draft night. This bodes well for our recruiting in the future.

I believe that the top 5 draft picks will earn about $7 million + per year. Not bad for a 19-20 year old kid from a small town in SC

I am hoping that Phoenix will not get the second pick when it comes up. Ja will have more opportunity to play the point at other locations. Cleveland and Phoenix are the two worst places he could go. The lottery will be more evenly spread among the participants than ever before.
So until the lottery happens, predicting where he will go is difficult.

Actually, the Celtics should trade up for Ja considering Kyrie will be gone due to him being a failure as a team leader.
