Thoughts on New Mock Draft?
What's everyone thoughts on nbadraft.net new mock draft. Would Washington take Monroe and could Cousins really drop to Philly?
hell no, haha, cmon now.
first thougts Cousins is not dropping like that. Wow Monroe has rose up but I think he deserves it.
I really doubt Cousins would drop out f top 4,actually I would be surprised if he isn't selected 3rd
To say Cousins has no chance of slipping out of the top 4 is absurd, he definately could slip to somewhere between 6-8. He is by far not a sure thing and if teams picking early will pass on him if they already have a C. It's widely known that he has maturity problems and also has a conditioning problem. He may end up being a liability on the defensive end and if he isn't careful could end up having an Eddy Curry like career. Curry would have beasted upon college foe had he gone to college, so Cousins is NOT a sure thing and definately has a chance of slipping a little.
Glad to see Aran has moved James Anderson in front of Xavier Henry.....I think Anderson is without question the better prospect and has a higher ceiling. Anderson is taller, longer, more athletic, quicker, a better shooter, a better defender, and a better playmaker. Anderson has a lightning quick release and can get his jumper off anywhere on the court and will light it up once he enters the league. The only thing Henry has on Anderson is strength, and that is probably the last trait I'm looking for in a SG.
DeMarcus Cousins will not get out of the Top 5,
I really think Latavious Williams and Da'Sean Butler will be Drafted
Why does Eric Bledsoe keep sliding down? He was in the lottery during tournament time. All five UK players were in the lottery during tournament time. Now he and Orton are jumping up and down the board. It just seems like each draft just keeps getting weaker and weaker since the age limit.
Cousins will be a solid NBA player. He is nothing like Eddy Curry and never will be. I hate that comparison and I hate the Kwame Brown comparison many people give him. He will make a bigger impact in one season in the NBA than both of those two washups ever have.
He has played one year of college basketball, something neither Curry nor Brown experienced. He is a legitimate post player. These maturity problems that you all keep talking about, can someone explain this to me? He just finished his freshman year right, is he even 20 years old? I don't remember him throwing any punches at anybody. I'm pretty sure Daniel Orton was the one who walked off the bench and went to the locker room.
And for you all who compare him to Curry and Brown and then say he won't be a top 5 pick, aren't you aware of where those guys were selected in their drafts?
The draft is like the stock market..Players value are constantly going up & down..But the few years i've been following NBADRAFT.NET Mock Drafts..Some of their predictions of where certain players might get drafted are sometimes so accurate..But i think if Cousins shows some poise & maturity during his interviews & how athletic he really is..dont be surprised if he goes number 2..Monroe might've went number 2 last year,If he had came out..There are guys in this year's draft that have 1st round talent ,but might go in the middle or late of the 2nd round..Becuz its so deep..Dont be surprised if Lance Stephenson goes in the middle of the 1st round..I hear some teams are high on him...Babbit is also creating a buzz..Scouts are comparing him to Kelly Tripucka a 2 time allstar..who played with the Pistons in the early 80's..Bledsoe is going to surprise alot of people..Jerome Dyson & Paul George will be sleepers
I'm happy to see Denis Clemente make it in the mock. I want the site do a scouting report for him!
