1.Kings-This Thomas Robinson pick was great ,you got a guy who was probably the second best NCAA player last year who has athleticism and potential.The Kings got there big men of the future with Robinson and Cousins.I think Robinsons hardwork and maturity will rub off on to Cousins and will finally realize what he could be if he worked hard once he sees Robinson taking his rebounds and getting easy baskets because he works harder.
2.Warriors-This is exactly what the Warriors needed ,people talk about drafting over value or need and the Warriors just did both.I'm glad Lillard and Waiters were gone when the Warriors came up to there pick because a lineup of Curry,Thompson, and Barnes is so much better then Lillard,Curry,and Thompson or Curry,Waiters,and Thompson because Thompson is a true Sg,and Curry is a better match up and more valueble at point then at the 2.Now with Barnes he gets the green light with Curry,and Thompson to be a scorer and these 3 guys kinda remind of a down graded Westbrook,Harden,and Durant.
3.Pistons-Andre Drummond fell into the right hands with the Pistons,you match up a very skilled big man in Monroe with a phsycal freak ,which of course is Drummond is great .Drummond wont need to be a down low scorer because of Monroe and can become a great rebounder and shot blocker down low.The front line of the Pistons will be something great ,all the have to do is find a sg and sf of there future and your looking at a very solid team in 3-5 years
New Orleans- you land Anthony Davis & Austin Rivers and in the 2nd you get a guy who just knows what it takes in Darius Miller. Two franchise types and solid role player I would say Perfect Picks on all 3.
Oh man, if Curry, Bogut, and Lee are fully healthy it should be a good time to be a Warriors fan. Think about that inside out game. Dumping the ball down to Bogut and Lee...then being forced to pick your poison with three lethal shooters on the perimiter. If the Warriors health holds up, I'd be shocked if they don't make the playoffs.
The Warriors had the perfect pick with Barnes because he fit their biggest need but also, thats a team he was very interested in playing for. He really wanted to play out there, from a branding standpoint more than Cleveland or Sacramento.
OKC had a near perfect pick with Perry Jones. I am not saying Jones is Ibaka's replacement, they are totally different players. What I am saying is, Jones is on par with Ibaka's talent which now makes the Thunder re-think choosing to retain Ibaka over Harden. If they can come to an agreement that Harden likes, then Ibaka is likely going to be the guy they wont keep.
^^^ Yeah everyone knows that Davis is perfect any were but honestly I wouldnt say that Rivers choice isnt the exact place for him because the only other position on the Hornets that was in place besides Pf(Anthony Davis) is Sg with Gordon.Now if Gordon leaves that Rivers pick looks great.
Why isnt the Rivers pick not good? He was picked 10th and a 10th pick can be a 6th man and still be a great pick. If he puts up Manu,Jason Terry numbers off the bench you wouldn't consider that a very good pick? Or Louis Williams numbers off the bench or Ben Gordan in his rookie year?
