2009 Extended Mock 3.0

Mon, 06/22/2009 - 8:37pm

With 2 days until the draft, the first round has become crystal clear... Errrr, actually this remains one of the most difficult drafts to project as no one has any idea what Memphis will do (including them) at 2, which will have a direct effect on the picks after it. So basically go ahead and tear up you mock drafts now... With so many teams looking to make deals, projecting the draft has become increasingly difficult. Here's our best effort to forecast the first round... for now.

Headlined by perhaps the draft's top two talents, the 2009 power forward class comes up short in depth. As a result, most of the better players are established college veterans, almost entirely lacking upside.

Team Needs: Pacific Division

Sun, 06/21/2009 - 10:08pm

The champion Lakers made it out of the Pacific division as the only playoff team. It clearly didn’t hurt them for their playoff run. Next year won’t be the same. Shaq aka The Big Cactus has a team of veterans in Phoenix, the Clippers have the 1st pick in the draft, and Golden State is loaded with talent. Kobe’s Lakers ripped through the Pacific last year with a 14-2 record, but next year should be much more challenging with nearly every team on the rise.

Tell me about those workouts. How have they been going so far?

Good. It's been a long process. I've done so much traveling and playing, there've been times when I've woken up in a hotel and forgotten where I was. But I've gotten a lot of good feedback.

2009 NBA Draft: Just lousy or all-time terrible?

Fri, 06/19/2009 - 6:00pm
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard that some people don’t think too highly of this year’s NBA draft.

People expect franchise-altering talent to be available at every turn — especially those teams consistently trapped in the lottery.
