Here is my mock....Ill give you 1-10 with a little commentary and ill leave the full draft link on the bottom
1. Sac-Ricky Rubio- Rubio to SAC gives them a face and a young PG. We have seen young PG's step in and lead teams over the past 5 years..so i would expect the same from Rubio
2.Was-Blake Griffin-Griffin was my #1 last time, but the more I think about it..most teams need a PG. Griffin could help any team right away with his toughness alone.
3.Lac-Jordan Hill- Hill is a good player but he has high upside and maybe LAC's only real pick because they're real young. Aside from PG and PF, they're very young.
4.Okc- Hasheem Thabeet- Thabeet falls to 4 and Durant will have himself a big man who could be a top 5 shot blocker in the NBA from Day 1.
5. Min-Brandon Jennings- Jennings is a hot topic player...he could be another Tim Hardaway type and then he could be a Billups ( guy who struggles to find his niche early) Jennings could be a great PG with Love and Jefferson in the hole.
6.Mem-Earl Clark- Clark,Mayo,Gay,Gasol,Conley and Arthur could be Portland 2.0
7.GS- Stephen Curry- Curry is project for NYC in other drafts...i say he doesn't get there because GS wants a PG and move Ellis to SG.
8. NYK- DeMar DeRozan- DeRozan is a VC type guy. He can go to the hole with a passion and he already work against some big men ( he played the 3 and 4 spot in college) If he gets a consistent 3 point shot...watch out
9.Tor- Tyreke Evans- Evans is a good pick because he could work inside and slash like T-mac. I think he's another guy...works on his jumper...great player
10.Mil-DeJuan Blair- Tough spot for me. To me if depends who leaves Charlie V or Sessions. If Sessions leave..the pick will be Jrue Holiday because he can play the 1 and 2. If Charlie leaves, Blair will replace him.
You have Harden as 11, I don't think he will fall that far. I also dont think Rubio will go first.
Sacramento has Thompson, Hawes and Greene. so why not take the best PG with your first pick and add some size later in Austin Daye-who could play the 3 and 4?
Harden- i like him. But if he doesnt go 4 to OKC, I think he falls on draft day cuz more players have higher upside
I think Sacramento will make the safe choice to be honest. You could have a nice frontcourt with Griffin, Thompson, and Hawes. You could also pick up Collison who would be solid player in the 2nd round.
Im not trying to fight either bro...i was jokin bout the counter thing.
If I was Sacramento
I take Rubio, Daye and maybe Gibson with there picks
I don't think the Kings are dumb enough to pass up on the talent that is Blake Griffin.
What if Blake Griffin is not 6-10...what if hes 6-7,6-8? He may drop because he has not show a consitant jumper.
I like Griffin over Rubio overall..not by much but Sacramento need a PG before another F.
they could take blake, trade him for rubio and another spot to fill... mid aged veteran center? it's crazy to think donte greene will ever be anything...he looks so worthless and not once showed an ounce of potential..kings just found another way to waste a pick...like douby...sacramento should take griffin regardless and use as trade bait if they get the #1. with that 2nd pick in the first round...they should try and take blair....some size and nasty off the bench.
I dunno...maybe trade the 28th pick? Why do u think Blair will be there in round 2?
Greene....dont throw him down yet. Im telling you he needs some time on the bench and he could be another Dirk-type. He can shoot very well. He does look lost at times. He usually played with a good PG.
take curry? hell no. they said ellis is the point next season. they are looking for a 3 cuz jackson is moving to the 2 an they already have to many shoot 1st players. they might want a point as a backup or insurance if ellis needs to go back to the 2. u said they need a real point so why get curry?
I dunno...they wanna move ellis to the 2 because he shoots....Crawford is gonna be a FA i believe and Jackson may get traded...Curry can help passing and scoring so i believe they take him
sac has the 23rd pick and 31st. blair is in reach. i don't see much to greene. if he don't show any sign of life this season, he's gotta go...and that goes for beno...what happend in 0809...
well...sacramento wont get rid of Greene....they know what they got when getting him....A guy who will take some time to develop. Just continue to give me playing time and hope he begin to develop faster
Udrih gotta go...but they signed him 4 5 years...guess thats what you get your taking a PG who never started.
I dont think Blair is a reach....Milsap helped his cause for him...I think he going as high as 10 and as low as 28 ( which i believe is Dallas)
i think he's great and Sac is probably the only team that gets away with picking him. he'll be a great pg in the league especially if he has weapons around him like kevin martin hawes and jason thompson.
but if blake truly is 6-10 idk if anybody would ever take somebody else with the number one.
and sick choice for memphis love earl clark fotr that team
I dunno...Earl Clark scares me cuz hes a big potential guy..
NO WAY RUBIO WILL GO FIRST
You got James Harden at #11 way too low,
Toney Douglas is a 1st rounder is unlikely
Gani Lawal is too talented to be a 2nd rounder
and you need to move my brother up...
Douglas may move up cuz hes gonna go to those NBA workout camps
Lawal may not...hes ok to me...I think he is more of a 2n rounder
Sorry dude, wish you brother was as good as you
Harden will stay at 11. I think thats as low as he goes. If he doesnt go 4, he wont go top 10.
