He is a pretty "safe" pick imo but still has a lot of great upside.
Given the Cavs tendency to ignore conventional wisdom, I would almost be surprised if the pick wasn't Porter.
Been saying that for a while. If there are concerns about Noel's longterm healthy, I think he will be the pick.
The lack of media hype around him being the No. 1 pick tells me that he's probably being looked at very closely by the Cavs. Since Grant took over, it has become obvious that they like playing games with the media and throw of other franchises as to their true intentions.
The guy NOT being talked about is the guy to really watch out for. Who had Thompson or Waiters to the Cavs at No. 4 in their mocks in 2011-12? Answer? No one.
