eric gordon i wouldn't touch in the first twenty picks, i can't find a single skill he has that translates well to the nba.
if i had the first pick in the draft, it would be beasley unless i really needed a point guard.
the best player that will come out of this draft is jerryd bayless. thats just my opinion, but that kid is going to be special.
because players have to go one year in school, and a lot of people end up staying longer, the draft classes are going to be much more balanced i think. you'll see a lot more starters emerge from the second round than in the past.
couldnt agree more on jordon
i thought i was maybe a hater(or more really hoping for a good fit) in gordon thinking 12ish to sac- i dont think you are way off but you are underestimating that he will be a scorer in the nba- i would bet it all on gordon making an immideate impact for any team- a whole lot of these guys have much less chance to impact teams so its hard to push him to far, but if he makes it the 20 im really happy for the nuggets
wow- are you saying you have it 1&2 bayless& beasely and rose at three ...
do you like brook lopez or oj mayo
who are some guys that you see as the locks to be in the top 10-15 to keep gordon to "slide"
