Some analysis have Hibbert better. Why is Lopez rated so much higher than BR? I am sure other GM's will not be fooled by these so called "mock drafts".
I am not saying BR will be drafted before Lopez, but I am saying that either could be chosen without choosing mistakenly.
The reason Lopez is so much higher has a lot to do with his age. He's only 19 and is younger than some of the freshman that entered the draft. But I do admit, I'm getting kinda nervous about my Roy Hibbert later than 15 pick. But I'm stickin to my guns. I wouldn't look too much into Hollinger as he's all stats. He's the same guy that said it was impossible for Boston to get passed Cleveland in the 2nd round because of the "stats" and said it was impossible for Spurs to win game 7 in New Orleans. I think he's pretty much a joke.
