Best Prospect For the '10 Draft?
 
John Wall? Donatas Motiejunas?

I want my wizards to somehow get their hands on GTOWN C Greg Monroe

Greg Monroe - Tim Duncan-like in the way he has very solid fundamentals, good post moves, good passer, intelligent, rebounds, makes others better, defends well, good + soft touch, athletic, good size.
Yup, just your typical, all-star, all-NBA Power Forward. Not a big deal.

John Wall - Don't know too much about him, but people call him a Derrick Rose clone which is good enough for me.

Cole Aldrich - I like double-doubles.

Donatas Montiejunas - Andrea Bargnani v.2.0? Good or bad, depending on how you look at it. Not a top 5 worthy pick to me.

John Wall 100%

The thing is, there really isn't a shortage of excellent players in next year's draft, which is good considering Memphis are heading right back for a top 10 pick next year.

Also, plenty of PF's, which is good, considering the nauseating amount of guards this year.

John Wall-He would've gone Top 3 if he had the balls to challenge Stern and the Draft rule in 09'.

I'm right there with you. Now I get to dream of landing Monroe.

Would you be interested in a young man of outstanding moral character, impeccable work ethic, all time scoring leader in one of the best basketball conferences, national champion, blah blah blah?

Monroe actually ended up with the Pacers on my NBA 2k9. Dude was tearing it up.

I probably wouldn't mind Hansbrough. He's an upgrade over Arthur, though not as athletic. But we now have Warrick, Arthur and Carroll at the PF spot and we still need to try and sign a PF worthy of starting. We don't need yet another backup PF.

lol i'm sorry for your luck getting Hansbrough... but at least someone has heard of him. Who the f&ck is Christian Eyenga?!?! and i know i know, we had the best record and still for the moment have Lebron, and we weren't expecting to get a star at the 30th pick... but goddamnit!

It's going to be John Wall. By the end of next season it will be like Griffin this year, everyone has Wall going #1 and the rest of the picks under that will change a lot from mock to mock.

Because so many bigs who would have probably been first rounders this year didn't declare, next year's draft is going to be loaded with bigs.

Guys who could have been picked this year:

Greg Monroe
Cole Aldrich
Ed Davis
Patrick Patterson
Craig Brackins
Jerome Jordan
Dexter Pittman
Jarvis Varnado

Young dudes who might be one'n'dones:
Derrick Favors
Demarcus Cousins
Renardo Sidney
John Reik (or is he a soph now?)
Ater Majok



Now some of these guys will probably fail in the NBA (cough Sidney, cough cough) but nevertheless there will be a lot of frontcourt options for teams.

Majok isnt a Pro prospect yet and neither is Riek, the learning curve for both is very steep.
