NBA Draft

Postby bison football73 » Wed Jun 22, 2011 1:33 pm

Well the NBA Draft is tomorrow. Who is goin where?

im thinking Kyrie Irving at 1 to the Cavs (even though it should be Derick Williams but i guess playing 11 games is enough to deserve the Number 1 overall pick)

Williams goes 2 to the Twolves

Told you guy's Bynum would be shopped.....Somebody call the T-wolves front office and tell them not to ruin their future.

I've heard Gasol to the Wolves for Love and #2 pick; Gortat (Suns) and the #13 for the #2; Steve Nash in some sort of deal for the #2 pick; Cavaliers were still talking (I think)...going to be interesting to see how the Wolves may screw up this draft like past drafts

Just because you read something online doesn't mean it actually happened and if it did happen maybe it was the Wolves that contacted Lakers :shock:

As far as the draft goes if some of the Europeans don't pan out this looks to be one of the WOAT drafts. The Wolves run so bad they finally get a really high pick and the only guy worth drafting at #2 plays the same position as like 5 other guys and next year when the draft is loaded they don't have a 1st round pick.

I didn't read online that Bynum was Brainless (with a phobia for real small foreign Guards) and still a HUGE work in progress after spending Millions on the Guy.

I actually don't think the Lakers will be able to get him off the Roster as much as Brown is going to want to. :shock: :shock:

Gasol for Love and #2 pick would be so uneven y would u give up the future of your franchise for an aging power forward

I'm not saying they've done well, but I don't think they've screwed up as much as some people think. The only huge mistake I think they made was when they drafted Brandon Roy, then traded him to Portland for Randy Foye and money. At the time, I thought they were idiots to trade OJ Mayo for Love and Mike Miller. Turns out that was a good deal.

Huge mistakes: Johnny Flynn, Marko Jaric and future 1st round pick for Sam Cassell, signing Joe Smith to a secret deal, signing Darko to 4 year deal, hiring Rambis, waiting forever to fire Rambis and a lot of their draft picks have been questionable, but I won't say horrible.

I think Flynn was a better pick than Rubio. I don't think he'll be good at all. What's he good at? He comes off the bench and scores like 5 ppg and has like 3 apg for his european team. He can't shoot at all. He is Rajon Rondo but not nearly as good.

Flynn was statisticly the worst PG in the leauge last season, granted he played in a horrible system for his talents.

Rubio could be a bust, but you can't say that 'til he at least plays. You can't base how he'll be in the NBA based on his stats in Europe. European basketball is a lot more physical, slower pace game. Supposedly his Euro team ran an even slower game than the usual Euro team. I didn't know this 'til is press conference this week, but Rubio didn't lose his starting spot 'til late in the season after he hurt his ankle. Canis hoopus and ESPN both projected him to be like a young Rondo, Kidd, Nate McMillan type. Rondo can't shoot, Kidd couldn't when he came into the league either. I can't remember if McMillan could. Remember back in '09 he was projected to be the #2 overall pick for almost the whole season behind Blake Griffin. He played on the Spanish national team that won the silver medal when he was only 18.

He did good in the olympics when he was 18 and hasn't done anything in two years.

thats cuz the olympic team played the right style of offense for him and his euro team doesnt i think he will be a good passer and will have to work on his shot and very good defensively

don't assume to much about any Foreigner ...don't speculate before they hit the Hard Wood as an True NBA player...WHY? to many have proved many wrong.....few have the Longevity of the Gifted Athletes from the United States but enough of them have had the 2 to 3 to 4 year run it takes to help get the Hardware....they're competitiveness is second to none.

Completely forgot about another huge mistake: drafting Corey Brewer and you can add this one after Thursday, drafting a guy that is ineligible to be drafted.

yeah that's the correct name...he's from Qatar. He lied about his age so he could be on the lists...but when you do a simple search of his name it shows that he is too old to enter the draft (internationally)

Well the Lakers had their shot to let him go, but instead picked up his option for $16 million. Doesn't look like they want to get rid of him that bad.

Wow after seeing Rubio in the NBA I have to admit I was completely off on that prediction.
