    Default My Crazy Mock

    I did this a few years ago. It was fun, but a ton of work. And it was fun to look back on. I held Earl Clark in incredibly high regard, and it was nice to see him look like he was about to validate me briefly this year.

    The way I do it is I run to fake mocks. One is what I'm guessing the teams would do. The second is what I would do if I were running the team. It's very possible there is a mistake in there (using two lists means I may forget that a player is still available on one board, and I miss him), so feel free to let me know, cause I'll fix it. The other thing this excercise does is expose flaws in logic, like I experienced in this one with OKC, where I reached on Giannais Atekenbote's potential too early, only to imagine he'd fall to their second pick later. But that's part of the excercise. There's a lot here, and I'll try to remember to come back and clean up the fonts later so it's easier to read, because right now I'm copying and pasting from word.

    5) New Orleans Pelicans:
    What I think will happen: Trey Burke - So same four off the board in both layouts now. Noel, McLemore, Bennett, and Porter. New Orleans is starting to put something together here. Davis showed flashes are star power last year, and Ryan Anderson is a great fit, and both are tied up for a long time at good numbers. Eric Gordon is you

    What I think will happen: Plumlee - There are a lot of players who can help the Mavs here actually. They could go big with any of the guys available. Or they could chase a PG. I think they

    Good read. Shame that no one reads NBA Draft forum anymore but, nice mock draft. I hope Schroeder will fall for us. I'm really high on him.

    Who do you think is the better prospect. Burke or Schroeder?

    I think Schroeder and Burke are really close as prospects, as evidence by my having them so close in my version.
    If anything I'd say Burke's size and playing at the highest level puts him just a tick ahead.

    Thanks. And thanks to anyone who read it. I know there are a few mistakes. For example I noticed that I referred to Ricky Rubio as Rudy a few times, for reasons I can't explain.

    The only keeping track mistake I think was that I lost track of Atekonboku for a few picks on the "what I think will happen" side.

    What's good Thorpe? Haven't spoken to you in a while.

    I actually like Withey for the Knicks. He does everyone that Knicks fans want Tyson Chandler to do with the bonus of understanding when/where to move offensively so he isn't clogging up things for Carmelo Anthony or Amar'e Stoudemire.

    McCollum will be taken as a pg


    Olynyk, Steven Adams, Saric, and Archie Goodwin should all be moved up

    Porter, Burke, oladipo should all be moved down.

    Adams is available and the Knicks don't take him it's a shame. Unless its Goodwin or Saric.

    Seriously bro, there are sportswriters out there earning tons of money putting out work that's chickenscratch compared to this.
