He is NOT a lock for the first round. That is fact.

If that were true, he wouldn't be playing in the Orlando pre-draft camp. He would have been invited to the physical only portion of the camp.

I think he's an NBA player too, but he ain't going in the first round.

I'll throw down an avatar bet on that one.

who is that according to? a bunch of mock drafts that are always wrong? trust me, he'll go round 1. there is a dearth of big men in this year's draft. if he came out in 2007, he wouldn't be drafted.

Scared of the avatar bet?

And this is according to me and everything I've read. None of which has mentioned him as even having a chance to go in the first round. Basically, he's playing for a spot in the second round.

Anyways, avatar bet?

How dare you?!?!

I'll sport a James Augustine "Fatboy11 is my bitch" avatar for two weeks if he is drafted in the first round.

Roger Powell is an upstanding citizen. i went to school with his girlfriend at joliet junior college (he's from joliet). she was always telling me that he would go in round 2. he's a spiritual leader on and off the court. you could always count on roger. that's what makes him so special. his girlfriend was always dressing down for class. she had a bomb ass. beyonce who? i'm for real. too bad she couldn't sing because she was fine as hell.

I like this draft. Adam Morrison will slip in the draft and Rudy Gay whom some think would slide (me) will go higher then expected, but at a slot where talently he should go.

Anyone watch much of NC St Cedric Simmons? PF. If so holla.

I didn't need that article to feel good about the bet.

And Powell played in the CBA this year. CBA Rookie of the Year to be exact.

This draft isn't the worst we've ever seen, but it's pretty bad. The age limit has combined with early entry from years past to weaken the talent pool. A list of teams that have players that could have been first round picks this year if they had waited until now to come out, and those players:
Atlanta: Josh Smith, Marvin Williams, Zaza Pachulia
Boston: Gerald Green, Al Jefferson, Kendrick Perkins
Philly: Andre Igoudale, Louis Williams (should have went to college, IMO)
Toronto: Chris Bosh, Charlie Villanueva
Dallas: Pavel
Houston: Maciej Lampe
NO: Chris Paul, JR Smith
Chi: Luol Deng
Cleveland: Ok, this guy isn't even worth mentioning...
Milwaukee: Andrew Bogut
Nuggets: Melo
Charlotte: Felton & May
Minnie: Rashad McCants
Portland: Telfair, Outlaw, Webster
Seattle: Robert Swift
Jazz: Deron Williams, Kris Humphries, and CJ Miles
Miami: Dorell Wright
Orlando: Darko, Howard, Ariza
G-State: Mona Ellis, Chris Taft
Clippers: Livingston, Korolev
LA: Andrew Bynum, Von Wafer

That's 37 players, many of whom would have ended up coming out this year under the present rules, due either to the rule flat-out making them wait or college bball hurting their stock. The Mike Miller ROY year was probably worse (mainly saying this because he's the worst ROY I can think of) but this draft's talent pool has been hurt and doesn't look that good. Marcus Williams may have the best career out of anyone in this class.

Additional thought: When's the last time that no one on the NCAA Champion went to the NBA the next season? Because that's going to happen this year. Joakim Noah, Corey Brewer, and Al Horford all could have been first round picks but instead chose to stay in school.
