disregard the information about him being on OJ Mayo's team. I was given bad information and after I did more following up I realized the two are different Mike Taylors. He is the individual that almost won the dunk contest.

Gonna keep him more for potential than anything else.. he may turn into a surprise I think... and if not, then money wise.. he wont be a risk...

I was just making fun of the fact we drafted Jared Jordan last year and now we draft another player with the same last name.

I've been hearing a lot of comparisons of DeAndre Jordan to a more athletic Kwame Brown. To me, that's not a bad thing. Kwame Brown might not be a superstar, but he has enough talent to make most team's rotation, and definitely ours. Plus when you consider the fact that Kwame was the #1 pick and we stole a more athletic Kwame at #35, I'd say I'm happy with the pick.

That said, I'm not trying to suggest in any way that he won't develop into the Dwight Howard that some say he might become. I'm just saying that the worst case scenerio for him still looks pretty dang good.

After watching videos on him, Im ashamed to say this but he somewhat reminds me of the Kandi man but I guess thats not bad for the 35th pick although Id hope for the Dwight Howard comparisons

DeAndre needs to add quite a bit to his frame to be anything like Howard. I can see the reasons for the comparison though: They're both uber tall, they are both really young for the league, they're both freakishly athletic, and they both have the wingspan of an Albitross. But Jordan probably will never be able to overpower people the way Howard does. I believe Jordan was a fantastic pick. I believe Jordan can develop into something great. And I believe he's going to work his butt off after the first round snub. But yes, there's a possibility that he'll just be another Kwame Brown, Kandiman, or even Robert Swift. But even so, he's a great pick, and he's got my support 100%.

Excellent draft...Jordan is worth the risk too. 2nd round picks are
risks anyway

I don't know, I do not remember Kandiman ever doing anything like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN2RoJD3dx8
