The Big Winners
Who do y'all think made off the best for themselves tonight?
My personal pick is the Washington Wizards. They had a hell of a draft getting Vesely, Singleton, and Mack.
Wizards are definetly the big winners in this draft
I'd also say the Bobcats, but then they go and trade Jeremy Tyler and ruin everything
Love what washington did, (Vesely is a stud)
I Love My Jazz!!!
and San Antonio did good (Love waiting on International picks!)
kings, tyler honeycutt in the second round and isaiah thomas with the last pick. Straight up robbery and thats regardless of how you feel about jimmer.
They got JIMMER who will have a chance to start as PG (if he works his butt off this offseason) they also got john salmons a good rotation player and honeycutt a small foward (witch they need) who has a lot of potential.
and I feel GS did very well as well.
Houston didn't do too bad if you ask me.
The T-Wolves landed the best player, so I'll vote for Minnesota.
Indiana got the scoring off the bench that they desperately needed by trading for Hill. They also filled that "local product" void so that people won't feel that McRoberts has to come back.
...as for the teams that actually drafted people, Washington made the right choices. They added a variety of skill sets that will help improve them across the board.
Detroit did pretty well, considering where they were picking. Brandon Knight at 8, when he could have gone second or third, and Kyle Singler at 33, who would have been a late first-rounder last year in a supposedly stronger draft.
I really liked what the Bobcats did. If Bismack becomes a bust though, Jordan's not gonna look too good again. Kemba would wanna play for a team run by a guy like Jordan.
I really like what Utah did, adding Kanter and Burks. Utah has had a glaring hole at SG since...well...as long as I can remember. And it looks like they're willing to part with Millsap/Baby Al/Okur to make room for Kanter.
top 5: Denver, Denver, Denver, Denver, Detriot
The Wizards draft is starting to grow on me. I think they're winners.
I'm also a big fan of what the Jazz did.
jeremy tyler = win....
Winners- Wizards, Spurs
Losers- Sixers, NYK
wizards did well for one. Minnesota got a steal in Derrick Williams. Can't believe cleveland didn't draft him. Then for their fourth pick, they should have drafted Brandon Knight, or enes kanter if Utah didn't get him.
Anyways big winner's are Minnesota, Wizards, Detroit (big steal with knight), Jazz.
Who here thinks Minnesota will trade Williams? Or would they trade Beasley or Randolph? Or nobody? They got shitload talent, they need some older guys.
I like the Celtics getting more athletic upfront with Jujuan Johnson and and his teammate Moore who can provide fresh legs and some scoring off the bench. 2 guys from Purdue that I think can play with limited roles a lot this season.
Sacramento did very well. I'm not really a fan of Jimmer, but I hope he learns to play PG more effectively (if you know what i mean). I really love the second round pick. Honeycutt is going to be a terrific player coming off the bench...
Not happy with that. Johnson is a good athelete, but damn I wanted us to grab Tyler. Johnson will run with Rondo good though and does give us extra shot blocking. Tyler has more upside and was good value at 25 though.
Has a chance to be the starting pg on the most covered team in all of basketball. Gets a chance toplay with Lebron, wade and bosh. Got drafted in the first round. I think he was a huge winner today. Even though I hate the heat I love this pick.
