Re: 2012 Draft
I posted my mock draft on nbadraft.net. I only got 5 of the lottery picks correct. I got both the Blazers' picks correct. I'm excited about Lillard....but won't let myself get TOO excited, since I was REALLY excited when we got Jerryd Bayless over Russell Westbrook in the draft. One of they guys who I work with is a huge Illinois fan and really likes Meyers Leonard, but thinks he made a mistake coming out early, but understood why he did, between the coaching situation there and his family situation. Leonard actually came right out and announced that one of the reasons that he was declaring was so that he could help his brother go to college and so his brother could get out of the Army and not have to deploy to Afghanistan. I'm happy that we got Will Barton in the second round. However, I was hoping to get Kim English or Robert Sacre as well....just saw that we traded Tyshawn Taylor to Brooklyn for cash considerations.
