SAM Hinkie= SAM Presti
2013 Nerlens Noel= Ibaka with more rebounding and maybe more blocks but less shooting
2014 Wiggins= Will not be exactly like durant but will be our main superstar like Durant. More like T-Mac in his prime
Sam Hinkie is turning this franchise around faster than ever. He is doing exactly what presti did. Of course there are a lot of ifs and variables but if everything were to go according to plan we would be exactly like the thunder to a tee. Presti traded Ray Allen like Hinkie traded Jrue for assets. The Pelicans will be better short term like the Celtics were but we will reap the benefits in the long run just like the thunder are now 6 years later.
