My Picks

Wall - as much as I love Rose, Wall is just extremly amazing when watching him play.
Gordon - his shotting ability and strength is amazing.
Griffin - he's more of a role player and neither will be a star. Beasley needs to except that he is a role player.
Favors - his strenght at PF
Roy - already a star what not to pick here?
Aldrige - must I say more? also already a star.
Cousins - I'll take Cousins because I love his swagger. He's not cocky just coinfidence. Something you can't teach.
Speights - He plays a lot bigger than he really is.
Smith - he goes lights out when he wants. Great 6th man for the rest of his career and has accepted the role.
Bargnani - because I have seen Motiejunas play yet. :-)

Wall will be better on a

Wall will be better on a team where he is the primary/secondary scorer. Rose will be a better option as a PG who distributes. Statistically I will say Wall will be slightly better

E.Gordon or X.Henry? Henry as long as he doesn't go to the Clippers. Players who are drafted by LAC don't fair well.

M.Beasley or B.Griffin? Beasley. I think once he gets his mind right he will be a slightly worse guy on the boards and D, but much better as a scoring option.

A.Randolph or D.Favors? Favors. Randolph needs to put on some weight to bang with the big boys.

B.Roy(not that young but still just in his 4th year) or E.Turner? I'll take Roy. Hes too smart and has a smooth J.

L.Aldridge or G.Monroe? Aldridge. I'm real high on this guy. I think he will be one of the most dominant PF in the game once Garnett and the rest leave.

A.Bynum or D.Cousins? Cousins. Love the dude's fire. I refuse to say swag. And I don't think Bynum will ever live up to the hype.

M.Speights or P.Patterson? If Speights gets more PT, I think he will develop into a very good player. He's got a great low post game and a pretty nice midrange J.

J.Smith or A.Aminu? Josh Smith is a physical beast who is starting to finally develop a J. He is one of my favorite players in the game. High energy, one of the best defenders and is a straight up hustler. Represents the ATL perfectly.

A.Bargnani or D.Motiejunas? Motiejunas. I think his game is more well rounded and as long as he matures and stops being as lazy as I have heard, I think his upside bests AB's.

man, all you guys are taking

man, all you guys are taking cousins over bynum? 3 straight years bynum has proven he is a 20-10 guy who can take over games when pau is not in the lineup.

Rose - He's headed for

Rose - He's headed for superstardom... All he needs is a consistent teammate who can put the ball in the basket. Wall has a chance to be great, but I just see Rose being the better player.

Gordon - I guess I'm biased, but I see Gordon becoming an All-Star caliber player... I can't say I see that in Henry right now.

Griffin - It's sad people didn't see what Griffin could do this season, but I think he's the real deal. I know it was only pre-season, but he impressed the hell out of me. I think he could be a hybrid of Boozer and Stoudemire.

Favors - He needs one more year of college, but I think Favors should be better. The reports coming out of Golden State are that Randolph isn't a hard worker.

Roy - He's a superstar and the third best two guard in the league... He'll be better for the forseeable future.

Aldridge - I'd like to see him attack the basket, rebound and block shots more... But I think he'll be the better player. Monroe will be pretty good though, especially if he gets drafted to the right team.

Bynum - I have to go with Bynum here because I've seen what he can do against NBA caliber bigs. I'm not so sure that Cousins will be able to push NBA bigs around like he does these NCAA bigs. We'll see though.

Patterson - I like Patterson here. I feel like I know what I'm going to get with him. He's not as talented as Speights, but Speights has a lot of flaws in his game.

Smith - It won't be close... Smith has matured and is one of the best defenders in the league.

Bargnani - I haven't seen the other guy play, so I have to go with Bargnani by default.

D.Rose or J.Wall? D.rose is

D.Rose or J.Wall? D.rose is blossoming into a superstar player in his 2nd season i don't see wall coming in having the same type of impact and he is a walking turnover who struggles badly in the half court
E.Gordon or X.Henry? E.Gordon he is already a proven nba scorer and more
M.Beasley or B.Griffin? Beasley will clearly be better griffin is way to overrated and will be a bigger K mart
A.Randolph or D.Favors? toss up because Randolph has shown flashes of his talent and favors will be a poor mans D Howard
B.Roy(not that young but still just in his 4th year) or E.Turner? roy idk why u would ask this
L.Aldridge or G.Monroe? Aldridge
A.Bynum or D.Cousins? bynum
M.Speights or P.Patterson? Patterson
J.Smith or A.Aminu? J smith
A.Bargnani or D.Motiejunas? never seen Motiejunas play so im takin bargnani

why i'm asking this, because

why i'm asking this, because i'm not one of those who thinks Roy will be next decade's Kobe i'm not one of those who thinks he will be the best SG, he is already 25 he is almost in his prime..
offcourse Roy is a star but when you are starting to lock player as a 2nd best in the draft to really should think that he is going to be a star too.

--- I think Wall will be

--- I think Wall will be better. I think Wall will be a top 10 player in the NBA, possibly higher. He reminds me of Dwyane Wade. Rose is going to be very good, but I think Wall is much rawer than Rose yet better than Rose was at the same stage of development.

--- I like Eric Gordon here. Henry is a guy I like as a prospect, as he has some NBA-ready skills and physical tools, but I don't think he'll be the scorer that Gordon is. Both are about even at defense and Gordon is better at creating for himself.

--- I like Griffin here. Beasley is the better pure scorer, but I think Griffin has some Karl Malone to him. He was impressive when I saw him before the season.

--- Randolph. He has more mismatch potential, and can be a scary good player in the future. Favors is a Chris Wilcox type player at his best IMO.

--- Evan Turner will be nearly as good, but not quite. I like Roy's future slightly more.

--- Greg Monroe will be better I think. I think he's closer to Pau Gasol than LaMarcus Aldridge. He has some strengths right now that are better than Aldridge (rebounding, passing, defense).

--- Bynum. For as good a player as Cousins has become, he's a poor defender and his attitude holds him back. Bynum has some nice moves and is much more of a presence defensively than Cousins is. And he's less of a headache.

--- Speights. I think Speights will be better statistically, but if he gets a starring role, he'll be too much of a "me" guy. He's a talent offensively, but he's not a defender down low and he's a mediocre rebounder. With that said, the scoring Speights will provide in the future will outweigh Patterson's maxed out game.

--- Josh Smith. He's got some more upside, even though he's a vet in the NBA. He's a big mismatch, and he's realizing his limits. Aminu has grown ALOT on me, but he's not quite Josh Smith. A poor mans version though.

--- I think this is a push. Motiejunas is just about the same player as Bargnani, but with more size. I thnk they will be nearly identical statistically and in terms of effectiveness in games.

you shouldnt be suprised.

you shouldnt be suprised. you gotta understand alot of people are gonna pick the guy whos getting the most pub right now or the guy who is domanting college while the other may just be good in the nba. like alot of people will pick blake even though beasley has many more weapons or the cousins over bynum even though bynum has shown hes a allstar when he has to be while only being 22

you cant say that because

you cant say that because look at beasley the 2nd pick and he is a role player,Hasheem Thabeet a scrub no type of basketball IQ,LaMarcus Aldridge under achiever someone who is 6'10 and scared of contact,marvin williams ,emeka okafor,darko the list goes on and on just because a player is projected to go #2 or go 2 does not mean he will be a star the only 2nd pick in the last decade that was better then advertised was kevin durant... not taking anything away from Evan turner but u cant possibly say he will have a better future then brandon roy

any player drafted not named

any player drafted not named lebron kobe would be a role player on the same team as dwade. d.rose e.gordan, mayo lopez would all be role players if they went to the heat

but you are right about the

but you are right about the second pick isnt always gonna be a star. i made a post awhile ago about the last 10 draft classes andon average only one of the top 5 picks become stars and less then one become franchise players

D.Rose or J.Wall? This is a

D.Rose or J.Wall? This is a tough pick I feel in the end Wall will has the slight nod in the future, but not by much
E.Gordon or X.Henry?Henry bigger and more athletic with a strong jumper and drive game
M.Beasley or B.Griffin? Beasely, Griffin is really just freakishly athletic, BEasely has a complete game
A.Randolph or D.Favors?Randolph, pretty close again but randolphs is putting up solid numbers and will only get better, much better
B.Roy(not that young but still just in his 4th year) or E.Turner?I love turner but Roy has established himself as a star and will mature and get better as he is still pretty young
L.Aldridge or G.Monroe? Aldridge has more scoring ability but as team players go Monroe wins, you are comparing 2 different styles of game
A.Bynum or D.Cousins? Cousins powerful with excellent footwork and finesse he will be a stud
M.Speights or P.Patterson ?Patterson I just love his game
J.Smith or A.Aminu ?Smith I think Aminu is overrated, good not great
A.Bargnani or D.Motiejunas ?haven't seen Motiejunas so no comment

D.Rose or J.Wall? Wall.

D.Rose or J.Wall? Wall. Love Rose but I think Wall has everything Rose has as well as better scoring ability and more of a superstar mentality.

E.Gordon or X.Henry? Gordon. Proven player with better handles and more consistent

M.Beasley or B.Griffin? Griffin. Better team player. More of a defined position

A.Randolph or D.Favors? Randolph. Favors has shown nothing to impress me while Randolph has.

B.Roy(not that young but still just in his 4th year) or E.Turner? Roy. Proven player. Like Turner alot but his ceiling looks alot like Roy so why chance it.

L.Aldridge or G.Monroe? Aldridge. Aldridge is a do it all athletic bigman. Very underrated. definitely take the sure thing with him. Monroe would be lucky to be as good.

A.Bynum or D.Cousins? Cousins. Bynum is good but I like Cousins attitude. Attitude separates the good from the great

M.Speights or P.Patterson? Speights. Similar players coming out of school but Speights has impressed me. Doubt lighting strikes twice.

J.Smith or A.Aminu? Aminu. I think he can play better in a system.

A.Bargnani or D.Motiejunas? Motienujas. Not very high on Bargnani so I'd take a chance on Bargnani
