Nolan is a BIG reach
Ummmmm You skipped Washington at #18
With the 18th pick the Wizards select Tobias Harris F Tennessee...with a hole in the middle of the line up they add a did it all player like Harris who can be a solid role player for years...he's one of my biggest sleepers in the draft, I feel like he's the perfect sf/pf off the bench for Washington at 18...He can rebound, post and pass, and is a very under rated athlete and scorer...
I don't think he will be able to check Bron or Melo
Yes they have Brandon Roy, Wes Mattews and Rudy Fernadez under contract , but with Roy's injury concerns and Rudy's interest to play elsewhere they add a great shooter to play off Brandon Roy( who may play more point guard with Miller likely to move on )...Wes looks like the Sg for now, while Thompson may surprise many and take over that job in the future...there is a need for more bigs in the rotation, but they get one of the best players available who can also provide insurance for Roy and Rudy...and it doesn't hurt that jw played his college ball close by...
Yes Harris......I see a lot of people post about his defense.
Not impossible, all he has to do is chase John Wall around all summer, also guys like Maurice Green have trained players on speed techniques, he could get a lot better at that part of his game yes , but he's a very good prospect
Next pick please because this is getting interesting with players falling
With Kenyon Martin likely to leave in leave in free agency and Birdman losing some of his soaring ability the Nuggets get a good prospect to pair next to Nene, Johnson is long , athletic and can block shots...if he ever adds some strength and becomes consistent he can be a steal this late in the 1st...most positions are set accept for Pf, so a low risk high reward guy like Johnson makes sense...
With Yao in injury crisis and the the Rockets pretty set at most positions minus C they take a flier on an athletic big with shot blocking ability , ,,yes he and Thabeet would mean the Rockets have two potentially great shot lockers, they also have two huge mysteries, something the Rockets seem to like...
6'11'' prospect I love the pick, but now that I thought about it he would be best slated for Philly
Don't string us along......Keep em coming!
I want to see Jeremy Tyler fall to OCK. If he pans out (remember, we thought he would go number 1 two years ago) than this OKC team is going ot be scary for the next ten years. You have Westbrook and Durant, plus Harden and Ibaka who are improving by the minute, plus a young grind it out big in Perkins. and off the bench you have Maynor, Sefolosha, Cook, Aldrich if he can live up to the hype, and maybee even Tyler. I am telling you, if Lebron wanted a ring, he should have signed a one year deal with the Thunder!
Sam Presti is known for the draft and stash, but he also grabs top talent when available, they draft a high high reward type combo guard who could put OKC in an enviable position, they could always trade him to a team that wants him for the right price...either way Selby cracks the first round and could become the steal of the draft...he could be Monta Ellis or Marcus Banks...
No f*ckin way I'm gonna even believe this pick LOL...... PGs Westbrook, Maynor, Robinson, Ivey. SGs Sefolosha, Harden, Cook............. Where does he fit???????
Nate is gone next year, Maynor is a back up and Westbrook may be a Sg, Harden isn't a lock to stay after his rookie deal and Thabo is a role player, I see no reason they can't add a dynamic guard with the 25th pick...not like they need any Big men to the point they reach...and in case u haven't been watching Westbrook and the Media are pushing him out of OKC...
He would be glued to the pine in OKC
Anyone the Thunder pick would be glued to the bench probably
Not so fast my friend! I'm not gonna let you quit on us like this, you gotta give us a finished product!
