I really like Jordan Hill but I think he is going to take a year to make the leap over most of his draft class. Curry will fade just a bit as teams figure out the man has a pretty good jumpshot but little else by NBA standards. DeRozan hasn't figured it out yet, Tyreke Evans' game doesn't really translate on an elite starter level. Rubio will take just a few years to pay major dividends if he goes to a fast paced team with athletic bigs, and Jrue's offense needs to catch up with his defense. Thoughts?
sleepers- ellington + budinger
and don't forget about Daye. I'm telling yall...
PF-Jordan Hill (Call me Crazy, but I don't think Blake Griffin is ALL that.)
SF-WAIT FOR IT...BAM Terrence Williams
SG-Steph Curry (Derozen and Harden will take some time, but I wouldn't be surprised if they make it)
PG-Ricky Rubio (My favorite rookie and besides A.I I love this kid's game)
Haha...many will say i'm crazy or stupid or un knowledgable about the game, but just going on what I believe. So call me stupid :)
PG: Ricky Rubio*
SG: James Harden
SF: DeMar Derozen**
PF: DeJuan Blair
C: Blake Griffen
*Only if Golden State doesn't draft a PG.
**Only if Washington, Memphis or New York doesn't draft DeRozen. Otherwise give his spot to Chase Budinger.
PG: Eric Maynor
PG: Ty Lawson

does anyone think any late 1st/2nd round picks will be on the 1st or 2nd team?
In order of voting/best season:
*based on my mock draft which some what translates into their roles and playing time
teague(if drafted to portland or minnesota)
last spot goes to one of those 4
these are all guys i think will do good if drafted to the right team
will be good in a couple years:
evans(after developing better jumper)
rubio(dont like his game, hate on me if you wish)
So many variables. What team does a player land on? How does the player continue to develop? I'm just gonna do a 1st & 2nd team with the five starting spots that could easily make this team after one year in the league.
PG: Tyreke Evans

For the first team, scorers thrive in the NBA, especially on teams that need scoring. Evans, DeRozan, Harden and even Griffin are going to land on teams that need scoring (sans maybe Washington). Thabeet will be a dominate force in the paint wherever he goes, so he will get a look for the first and second teams.
The second team is trickier. Jennings goes on here because he has a year under his belt in Europe with NBA-type competition. Ellington is another scorer that will be a nice surprise on any team. T-Will is a do-it-all type that will blend well in the NBA game. Earl Clark, if he finds that passion, will be a multi-faceted player in no time. Jordan Hill is a boom/bust for me, but no other big men are on my radar after him.
