the top 10 of my mock draft.
( i do not think this pick is concrete as most believe.i think they'll be tempted to take rubio, but in the end they'll go with griffin)
(they have a ton of money riding on agent zero, and a pretty good young 2 guard in nick young, i don't know how they'll deal with that; and though they'll be intrigued by thabeet, they'll go with rubio)
(they're in a similar predicament as the wizards, having given baron that bigass contract, and on paper they don't look like a bad team.gordon has played well but is an undersized 2; they have mike taylor who has been a surprise at back up point.i think they go with harden.hometown kid, and its a safe pick)
(thabeet has bust written all over him, but i doubt he drops out of the top 5 picks)
(if he jumps in the draft, he's going top 5.he's a skilled big man, and Minnesota is his hometown.they're front line will be scary)
( if he's in the draft, i don't see him falling far.he's too skilled. grizzlies would have a very good frontline as well)
(because it's what don nelson would do)
(their is no way they pass on him.i would be incredibly muthaf'in pissed if they did.
jennings is made for broadway.we need a point guard, he is it.)
(clark is a very talented versatile player; colangelo doesn't pass on him)
(lawson is the best point guard in the nation, and quite possibly the best leader in this entire draft, i think he sneaks into the top ten)
derozan slips out of the top ten cause don nelson is crazy.
also, i think the clippers will win the lottery, also because don nelson is crazy.
Clippers will not take Harden. They have enough scorers. Aldrich is staying. Warren too.
Good point. They are pretty dumb.
uhh. eric gordon, Deandre jordan, and mike taylor in 1 draft + al thornton 2 years ago. we draft better now...
Why Eric Gordon didn't start to get minutes until January is beyond me...
Oh this comes from the Clipper fan...a little bias maybe? Gordon was the no brianer pick. Jordan fell so far that he was basically handed to them. Thornton and Taylor were solid.
how do u kno im a clipper fan, i could just like ships (a clipper is a type of ship)...jk.
if gordon was the no brainer pick then why did most people have the clippers taking others like dj augustin and jerryd bayless and with brook lopez falling they could have taken him too. if jordan was a no brainer, why didn't the other teams with earlier 2nd round picks take him? thornton at 14 is pretty good. and taylor at 55? thats really good scouting. i bet u did not know who taylor was b4 the 35 pts he dropped on the knicks.
Aldrich is out..so the Wolves will have to go with Jennings. Jennings is really intriguing because it is hard to determine if he can score in the NBA or not. He has all the skills so if he can score he will be very good in the NBA but he couldn't score in Europe, but since Euro league is completely different its hard to determine.
I knew who taylor was. Played right here in ames for Iowa State. Solid ball player..streaky.. but solid
Alot of people seem to be hyping rubio wayyyy too much. people aren't even sure if hes gonna get out of his current contract and he hasn't proven much so no way hes #1 pick. Also the wizards aren't takin rubio since caron said he doesn't wanna sit through some rebuilding season so if they can't get griffin he wants them to trade the pic. Rubios best chance is to go to the clippers and be a spark behind baron when he has his "you kno what F' the team" moments. thabeet is just gonna be one of the many 7 foot guys the thunder have that can't do anything other than be 7'0. Alrich is overrated too. No way he goes top 5, specially to the twolves who already have big guys who aren't atheltic or aggressive. They need a point. The grizz need a vet. THey have youth at every position although their also thin at point now. Warriors are gonna take someone like earl clark, or terrance willaims. I agree with the knicks takin jennings or curry since they need a gunner who doesn't play D for that system. Raptors take derozan and hope he turns into tmac. Earl clark is versatile but is he really better than people they have playing sf? The bucks are still trusting sessions so they don't take lawson either. I say they finally get a backup for mike redd.
p.s: taylor went low cuz he was unknown for on the college stage. he left the team like mid season and went D-league while still being draft eligible.
it might be to you, but who gives a shit what you think?
personally i don't.you're right though, the wizards should draft michael jordan instead of rubio.
smh at this &$#%#&@!.
Actually I knew who Mike Taylor was before the draft. This thing called TV had a segment on him being the first D-League player to enter the draft. He fell and Jordan fell. Don't give yourself credit for that. Bayless was a good point though.
not every team drafts out of need... wizards have enough talent so they wouldnt just skip on rubio because they already have a point guard...
also, grizzlies dont spend money, (a fact) so i doubt they will sign any veterans who can actually contribute...
@MATA, I ususally avoid arguin with "special" kids but come on. your list is a homer list. The wiz don't need rubio because they have crittenton to mold anyway AND caron butler SAID he doesn't want anyone other than blake. so kno what ur talkin about punk.
@henry, ya ur right but rubio isn't as hot a topic as everyone on these mock drafts tries to make him. plus when one of your star players already said he doesn't want another young guy unless its option A, they will try to make him happy. And griz spend money on bums like darko...I mean the grizz are stocked with young guys up front. so why get monroe?
Wow, Caron Butler is definitely not a good enough player to be making comments like that, thinking he calls the shots...if he was Lebron or Kobe, then maybe, but he needs to just shut up and play basketball...
lol at this moron calling me a special kid.don't post in this thread if you don't want to argue.first you attack my list then you say you don't like to argue with "special kids" clearly, that makes alot of sense.everybody's list is probably going to be wrong so you're opinion is moot.seriously, why is it that every sports forum has a douchebag like this guy?
you know it all but you're on a forum like the rest of us.GTFO if you don't like it &$#%#&@!.
chad ford has aminu going to the t wolves and jennings falling out of the top ten..........smh.
