Davis Bertans Interview

Fri, 05/27/2011 - 6:58am

Davis Bertans is one of the most intriguing International prospects in this year's draft. Just 18, Bertans is possibly the top pure shooter in the draft (Fredette included). He is shooting 57% from 3 on the season, averaging 8.9 min per game and 4.1 ppg. He impressed scouts at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland Oregon in April. A soft spoken 18 year old, Davis has a strong focus and desire. I conducted this interview on May 27th, with Davis' team heading into the Slovenian league finals against first place Krka Novo Mesto.

2011 NBA Draft: Point Guard Prospectus

Thu, 05/26/2011 - 10:12pm

NBA fans have heard the phrase “it’s a point guard’s league” ad nauseam over the past two years.

Who's #1?: The Case for Derrick Williams

Tue, 05/24/2011 - 10:17am

Last week we witnessed Dan Gilbert and his adorable son luck up and score the 1st and 4th overall picks in the NBA draft lottery. Keep in mind the term "luck up" is fairly relative, considering we aren't even a year removed from the festivities in South Beach. Anyway, possessing two of the top four picks in a draft will be mighty useful for the rebuilding efforts of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Who's #1?: The Case for Kyrie Irving

Tue, 05/24/2011 - 10:16am

As many of you already know, the Cleveland Cavaliers – still recovering from being caught in a tidal wave called LeBron’s ego and washed up on the island of futility – landed the 1st and 4th overall picks in the 2011 NBA Draft. The possibility of drafting two all-star caliber players is a decent consolation prize for losing arguably the best player in the NBA.
