Mock Draft with team needs and comparisons.
Tell me what you think.
A tough time believing that Cousins will be as bad as Kwame Brown if Cousins doesn't pan out. Also, John Wall...Just "pretty good upside"? Wall was better than Harris as a freshmen and will be a better player (and im not even that high on Wall). Donatas is too high. Switch Monroe and Davis. Blazers won't take Gani...trust me I know lol. Sylven is a projected 2nd round pick. Mid-undrafted (though I don't see him going undrafted. No way he's a first round pick. I think Willie will go higher than 30. Pondexter will be a first round pick. Switch him with Nemanja Bjelica.
Pretty solid though.
If Montiejunas worst case is brad miller (15-9-4 in prime), then that is pretty damn good....
I don't mean a prime Miller, I mean a RIGHT now miller. And I don't think Cousins will be as bad as Kwame but nobody thought Eddy Curry would be this bad either. Wall, I'm not buying into the Wall hype.. IMO. I could be wrong though.
for donatous you should take brad miller out of it and say best case: dirk worst case: channing frye.
AK ain't young? He's 29, so he ain't old either... Memo is only 30 as well...
The Jazz are the third youngest team in the NBA...
Also the Vesely-Villanueva comparison isn't very good. Vesely is defensive minded and an energy player.
I didn't like the comments, but the mock draft was pretty good.
Thanks The I in Win.. I'll change it in a bit.
Butidonthavemoney, thanks for your comment aswell. I wasn't sure about vesely, i'llt ake it into account
"Hibbert didn't work out"????
Do you watch NBA basketball?
Damn you steal my Vesely comparison.
churchboy1, a 7'1" averaging 5rpg?
He's only avg. 25 MPG too. And he's closer to 6 RPG. Brook Lopez gets about 8 RPG avg. but plays about 36 MPG.
Wayne Chism needs to be lower.
DeJuan Blair gets more boards then Roy. DeJuan plays 18mpg.
Look at Hibbert's stats. He is actually averaging around 8-10 rebounds a game and 1 or 2 blocks a game. If that's not good for his age, then I don't know what is. Seriously there is no way he is not working out. Remember, he was just drafted in 2007, and at that time he was a project, give the man time to develop. If you want to mention a Pacer that is not working out, you could probably say Troy Murphy or Brandon Rush (although he was drafted in 2008 so he needs his time as well). Indy could use a guy like Henry or Donatus Montiejunas. Better yet have them drafting a point guard, they could seriously use one. Then again there aren't many PGs in this draft. So unless Indy wins the lottery they will have to find their PG via free agency. (I wonder how much cap room they have going into the 2010 FA frenzy) The rest of this draft is not too bad although there are some serious modifications that need to be made. I will not mention these modifications because they have already been mentioned in this post.
Since when were we talkin about Blair lol
Since when were we talking about Brook Lopez?
And Hibbert is not averaging 8-10. Don't try to stuff his stats.. He's averaging 5.7
Okay I lied about Hibbert's stats. But for about a month or so he was averaging those numbers. So he is a little inconsistent, but he can get back to those numbers. I expect next season he will continue to improve and increase his career average to around 7 or 8 rebounds a game. And Blair is a beast, while Hibbert is not so of course he will average more rebounds then Hibbert in his rookie year. He was the prize of this draft, that will not get the ROY award. He was the sleeper all because of those darn ACLs
True about DeJuan Blair. I just don't believe in Hibbert.
hibbert was drafted 2008, troy murphy is a monster one of few players to ever average a double double and shoot 45% from the feild if not the only
the pacers are a good team just not gud nor DEEP enough to make it to the play offs
they lucked up on bayless but traded him for rush?
they just havent been drafting well
They lucked up on granger hes a night mare but there waitin untill there cap space clear in a couple of summers to build around him
when ppl talk down on harris they forget he was a young point gaurd on a team they went to the finals
he came to new jersey and in his first season made the all star team and was a canadite for M.I.P
lost vince and became the worst team in the nba
but you got to understand
The nba has ballers the nets have gud players they all play the same postion lee came in from a trade yi back off injury
injury the bug that killed the nets.....new coach its alot of factors why there losing....
but harris still puts up around the same numbers...its juss his point are down with the emergence of other players
the dribble drive from calipari not being ran anymore since the coach and player changes and team making there defense to stop him the focal point of the nets offense
rember harris wasnt the best shooter out of wisc still isnt
I didn't say Harris wasn't a good player.. He's a good leader and has a couple of 20ppg seasons under his belt.
