Mock draft game (vote for each pick)
 
We'll do the other draft game too that InspiredLebowski has become a master at, but this one we did last year. This game was actually set up by Maniak so I'll PM him to see if he has interest in doing it this year. Once the order has been set, we'll start to vote on who should be picked #1. When that vote has been set we'll move on to a vote for #2. You can base your picks on team need, best player available, players you believe can't be passed on, etc. Here's examples from when we did it last year:

Originial thread (#1 pick)
#6 pick thread
#10 pick thread
ROFL at this guy picking Maynor


So you see how it goes. We'll wait until the draft lottery to start but wanted to get people aware.

Who woulda had more value to the Clippers this year, Griffin, or Steph Curry's mom?

I'm psychic.

Anyway, I'll post what I know. Even though this is gonna be one of those drafts people look back at in 5 years or so and say "WTF?" Pick 10 or so and all the way through the first couple picks of the second round are so close it's nuts.

And if you draft Hassan Whiteside, you are a dumbass.

And we can start this. I would put a thread in the main NBA forum but instead I'm going to PM guys who are more knowledgeable to come in here and vote. If the votes start lacking then I'll get more people.


WIZARDS ON THE CLOCK

So basically just name the player I think Wizards should take?

Wizards go John Wall here.

Trouble star guard Gilbert Arenas will be replaced by a younger, fresher face in John Wall. Moving Gilbert will be tough given his contract. And Wash may have to consider eating some deals in order to move him. But John Wall is the right step for the franchise.

Damn, only 30 days to prepare?

Washington goes Wall here, no doubt.

Luke Harangody.

But seriously, John Wall.

Wall.

And I'm expecting these first 2 picks to go by fast, the fun part comes at pick #3. But if you want to add how you feel about Wall that would spice it up a bit.

Re: Mock draft game (vote for each pick)
 
Damn I feel out of the loop, didn't even know the lotto went down :roll:


John Wall, for obvious reasons.

I would just like to say I'd rather Wall somewhere else. I could only dream of him in Toronto

Re: Mock draft game (vote for each pick)
 
Not a really good environment for someone you want being pass first:

Gilbert Arenas
Nick Young
Randy Foye [garbage]
Josh Howard

Nah, man, you gotta shoot! :lol

Re: Mock draft game (vote for each pick)
 
My feeling on Wall is that he is a can't miss prospect. I'll say again what I said in a couple other threads. Remember when people were comparing Rose/Beasley to the Kidd/Hill draft? I didn't feel that way about them but I feel that way about Wall/Turner. And I'd rather have the Kidd. There's going to be a lot of moving in that Wizards backcourt and one way or another they're going to have Wall and Arenas starting together. Arenas isn't going anywhere as of yet and Wall isn't coming off the bench.

Re: Mock draft game (vote for each pick)
 
Vote:

Wall-5
The rest-0

:oldlol:

But I'll let everyone have their say on Wall and then we'll continue on to #2.

Any chance Philly trades this pick?

Not unless you're taking on Brand contract with it while giving the Sixers back a good player in return. :oldlol:

Re: Mock draft game (vote for each pick)
 
Pipe dreams. I love your squad, but some bad contracts. You guys need a less-idiotic shot-blocking big. Brand is hot garbage, too.

I'm thinking a defensive center is your biggest need, but are you satisfied with Holiday? I'm thinking he's more of a backup right now. He's a great defender, I just question his ability to run a half-court offense.
