I don't hate Eric Gordon at all. It's just that his lack of height and PG skills is going to make it difficult for him to become an elite NBA player. Bulls already have a guy like that in Ben Gordon.

He is the last guy they need. And unless they draft Hibbert, Arthur or Love in the late lottery, I'd rather just deal the pick.

Bulls need NBA ready players. No more Curry/Chandler/Thomas type projects. This draft is full of projects.

Beasley fo' sure!
But I consider Derrick Rose and Eric Gordon as very talented players. Jordan is a great athletic player but overall less talented.

There's no doubt he's good, but that doesn't make him less of a spoiled, selfish, lying piece of garbage. There will never be a single instance in his career where I hope he succeeds. And I hate looking at his smashed-up, moon-shaped face. He looks like a fetal alcohol baby, especially with that stupid pout he always has on his weird-ass face.

The reason I don't hate Derrick Rose in the same way is because it wasn't him who personally screwed over Illinois, it was his brother and Worldwide Wes. I think Rose is a good kid who if his college choice had been left up to him, and not his brother going for the highest bidder, would have gone to Illinois.

I don't think Rose forces things enough. You say he's not CP3 good; I think he's at least as good as Paul was as a college freshman.

I guess we'll see tonight when KSU plays Kansas....from what I've seen i go Beasely. he can post up, shoot, and put it on the floor, his maturity is a bit of a question mark..... I don't know if Rose is better than Conley was last year for the Buckeyes

2 hours to go now. I really want to see what Beasley does against another lottery big in Arthur.

I agree that as a freshman rose is as good as paul.But didnt paul stay two years?Even though he looked promising he knew it was better for him to stay.Unlike these kids.I would be surprised if any of these guys stay another year.When they all could use it.Mayo was thought to of been the best in this class before the season.Now he isnt in the top five picks anymore.

After tonight I'm putting Beasley in the driver's seat. He still has a ways to go, but his offensive game is too good to pass up.

I really don't think it is a question that Beasley is in the drivers seat. If only for the simple fact that Magic Johnson and Allen Iverson are the only two guards I can remember getting drafted #1. It happens like once every 15 years. It is getting close to 15 years since Iverson, but not yet, and I don't think Rose, despite the fact that I think he should go #1, will.

Beasley is a great prospect. Attitude may be an issue. It may not. Teams will interview him, but MJ is probably one of the biggest jerks in sports, and that didn't seem to hurt him. Talent overrides everything in the NBA. If a team thinks that Beasley will be a consistant 25 point scorer every night, he will go #1. Unless he is getting in trouble off the court, and they hear about issues in the locker room, and he looses control on the court, attitude won't be an issue. NBA coaches are paid big money to deal with cocky attitudes and make things work for the team. Beasley may be tough at times, but as long as he stays off the pipe, out of the clubs before games, and doesn't hang around with greedy thugs, he should be fine.

And the idea that Rose or anybody else wouldn't bring bad influences along for the ride once they make their millions is crazy. Maybe Rose is such a good guy that he lets his friends live in his house like Michael Vick. Or maybe he is such a good guy that he will take his friends out at night and make it rain like Pacman Jones. Or maybe Rose makes one mistake and looses his temper like Ron Artest. Of course I can't say for sure that any of those things will, or are even likely to happen, but nobody can say for sure they won't either. All teams can go with is the past, future, and predictions. Unless Nostradamus is your GM, you are taking a risk with every guy you draft.

Well it is still awhile away.We will be able to determine an order,once we know which teams are in the bottom five.

But that is when predicting is the least amount of fun because you hear every day about workouts and how 22 guys are going in the lottery and eveybody who hasn't watched any games this year are telling us how the draft is going down and why. This is the time of year when your opinions on college players and NBA teams are being formed. It is much more fun to talk about this when things are still being decided instead of when the picks are set and every "insider" tells us which teams like which players.
