Re: If Houston somehow gets #1 pick
I have always been a firm believer in taking the best talent available and not necessarily go for the position needed. with that said I have been hearing nothing but hype about john wall and honestly as much as i see the talent, you can't disregard the fact that all this "hype" happens in fast break full court offense. In the half court offense, there isn't much to talk about. I think if Houston somehow gets number 1 pick, I would take Demarcus Cousins. (with the proper scouting of course, meaning professionals from the houston org believe this guy will be an nba talent).
Really the draft is a hit or miss. as good of a scout you are, you never really know how a player will translate into the nba. and coming from a non professional scout and from what i know, i would take cousins. he's got the height, size, length, and talent to be a solid center in the league.
