Default ESPN's top early 100

http://sports.espn.go.com/fantasy/ba...tdraftrankings

My thoughts..

Im not taking Kobe in the top 4 this year..

Granger should be ahead of Kobe and Durant

Amare at 10 is a steal. Back to run and gun and Shaq's gone.

Al Jeff at 11 is a risk coming off his injury.

Im iffy about Iggy at 15. He puts up good numbers across the board but last season he seemed to struggle with Brand in the lineup becuase they played a slower pace.

JJ at 16..his scoring will prolly come down with Crawford there..still a nice all around player.

J Smoove at 24..I loved him last season and he disappointed me big time. Dont know if I'm taking him that early this year.

Im taking Rondo before Claderon.

Troy Murphy at 39 is a steal.

OJ Mayo is a lil too high for me. Randolph, Gay, and maybe Iverson..not enough shots to go around.

Rudy Gay didnt have as good of a season I was hoping for last year but I'll take him at 51 anyday.

Brook Lopez at 53..STEAL

Biedrins at 54 is a steal

Im taking J Rich at 61 all day with PHX going back to Run and Gun

Im not taking Saloms at 65 with Deng back

J. Terry is ALWAYS ranked too low..67

If Diaw is there at 72 Im taking him everytime

20 and 10 you can always get late in the draft is Randolph

Im not taking Yao at 75. I prolly wont pick him period.

Bargnani at 77 is a steal. He just needs to stay consistent

I like E. Gordon at 78. If he's there Im taking him there all day.

Charlie V at 81 is the steal of the draft. NO WAY is he gonna make it to 81.

Marion is a do it all player..I'll take him at 84 no questions asked.

Tyrus Thomas is a NICE value at 86

Bogut is a steal at 89..just hope he stays healthy

Kevin Love at 94..I'll take him there all day. Steal.

Mike Conley was doggin at the end of last season I'll take him at 95 all day..nice value..something like Chris Duhon was this season

If Jack goes to the Raps..Ford is a nice pick at 99.

James Harden will finish top 90 this year.

Jamal Crawford not in the top 100.. I know he's coming off the bench but he will still get a lot of PT.

Scola should with out a doubt be in the top 100..espically with Yao out.

Watch out for Brandon Rush this year. SLEEPER.

I see Tyson Chandler isnt in the top 100..needs to stay healthy

Chris Duhon isnt in the top 100 either..steal

Spencer Hawes and Jason Thompson are both nice picks outside the 100..espically Hawes. Hawes is a sleeper.

Why isnt AK47 in the top 100..

If (when) Boozer gets traded Paul Millsap will without a doubt be in the top 100. He should be in there now. Thats if (when) Utah matches the offer sheet. If they dont then he shouldnt be in the top 100.

Im done. Thoughts?

Why the F does ESPN use 10 teamers as its default. Ridiculous.

Berry and Karabell are wack.

Not a bad list actually. Until after 60 and its progressively all over the place.

Not bad...Join the Mock. Maybe ESPN is projecting another season ending torn ligament for Bynum. Hence his 65 ranking.

I missed the 1st and 2nd round of an 8 Teamer. Autopick selected Wade 1 then Marion 2. I couldn't trade the guy if my life depended on it.

Marion is in line to have great value for owners. I will be targeting him.

Cmon. Join the mock.

87 FT%
2.7 3s

Im taking Granger over Durant everytime.

More reasons:
Granger played 3 less mins then Durant.
Mike Dunleavy is suppose to miss the 1st couple months of the season.
James Harden

Kobe or Durant is the better question..

Your right..I will take Saloms there. Forgot Ben Gordon is gone.

Yea..Marion is gonna be a steal that late.

Right..thats why I said hope he stays healthy.

LOL..I had top 80 at first but then I changed it. I like Harden a lot though.

Fall off the face of the Earth? Why? Who's gonna take his spot? Why isnt he gonna get PT?

Please, Mayo only shot the rock 15 times this year only .7 more than Derrick Rose per game. I would like to see him Shoot it about 20 times a game this year. He is going to be the Dwyane Wade of this draft. He should go in the top 20

Really? 20 shots a game. How will he get 20 shots a game with Randolph(gun)..Gay (gun)..and maybe Iverson (gun).

None of the following players averaged 20 shots a game last season..
Lebron
Danny Granger
Durant
Melo
Bosh
CP3

Do you realize only 3 players averaged 20 shots a game last season.


D Wade of this year..

Is Mayo gonna avg. more then 1 block a game? more then 2 stls a game? more then 7 asts a game? 5 rebs a game? More then 28 points a game?

A lot will change before the season starts tho.

The numbers are definitely comparable and ahead for Granger. Let me say I was pimping Granger all offseason last year. In my auction league. I forced another owner to drop 35% of his budget on him. Until I backed off. the entire league was making fun of us. Saying we were over paying. That being said. We all know how that ended. I am a Granger supporter and a former Durant hater.

Durant is legit. But Grangers SERIOUS knee injury has me worried. hence the coin flip. At 100% im with you on Granger.

Granger has a serious knee problem. He was very close to shutting it down last season. He gutted it out though. Let me see if i can find the articles.

Granger was impressive, no doubt, but I think he's close to being as good as he's ever going to be. Not so with Durant - he'll continue to expand his game as his team gets better. His assists will rise, as will his steal/blocks.

It would be close, but I think I'd pick Durant over Granger.

Do you realize how slow of a start Durant had? Then did you not see how he exploded after the All star break and took a quick hiatus from destroying people because he got injured, but then came back and continued destruction?

Kevin Durant ALLL DAY over Granger.
