Rose and Mayo are undersized shooting guards like a Stehpon Marbury and Steve Francis. I would also want Eric Gordon if James Jones walks.
Myth made a good point. If we use more than one pick then it'll probably be on Euro players so that they don't have to make roster room immediatly and buy out Miles and LaFrentz to make room.
I think it's 50/50 that Portland either uses the picks to move up or package them with a young player and one of the two huge contracts.
Derick Rose is BY FAR the best pg in this draft. He is lightyears ahead of Daren Collison. Rose is the only pure pg in the draft. Have you watched him this year? He is NOT "just an undersized sg" hes not a chucker like OJ and Gordon. Rose runs the offense, manages his assist/turnover ratio. Rose is freakishly athletic and fast. He isnt a shoot first pg like OJ or Eric Gordon. Derick Rose is BY FAR the best pg in this draft.
Look at all the mock dratfs, if Collison was better than Rose wouldnt he get drafted before him? In all the mocks Rose is #2 and the earliest i have seen Collison is #13. Thats a pretty big drop off.......
