1. Bullets- John Wall
2. 76er's- Evan Turner
3. Brooklyn Nets- Derrick Favors

With Gilbert Arenas playing SG and Wall at PG the "Wizards" are looking dangerous.
I love Evan Turner's game. Have had a soft spot for the 76er's since the AI days.
Telling you the Nets will be a playoff team in their new stadium.

Some Video Interviews:

John Wall

Part 1:
Part 2:

Evan Turner
(Turner has a speech impediment because of an overbite when he was young)
Also here's a article on his struggles as a kid. One of his best friends committed suicide 5 years ago and Turner was also hit by a car at the age of 3: http://sports.espn.g...dana&id=4683505


Derrick Favors (sounds dumb as rocks)


Wes Johnson
(my favorite player in the draft. He sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders and he is one of the more articulate ones)

Part 1:
Part 2:

Here's a video of John Wall working out. He's focusing on his shooting, probably his worst part of his game. It's strange to see a right handed player finish around the rim so much with his left. I noticed that at Kentucky and from his high school videos at Word of God.



Here's a video of Paul George. An under the radar prospect whose stock has risen. He's a sophomore out of Fresno State. Hes a versatile player that can play the 2 or 3 but is listed at 6'9".



After watching various videos and reading up on George he has become my favorite player in the draft(don't get that confused with who I think will be the best in this class). I just love his athleticism, and also his ability to rebound and pass.

A NBA Mock Draft.

1. Wizards / John Wall PG, Kentucky
2. 76er's / Evan Turner G/F, Ohio State
3. Nets / Greg Monroe PF, Georgetown
4. T-Wolves / Wesley Johnson SF, Syracuse
5. Kings / DeMarcus Cousins C, Kentucky
6. Warriors / Al Farouq-Aminu SF, Wake Forest
7. Pistons / Derrick Favors PF, Georgia Tech
8. Clippers / Paul George G/F, Fresno State
9. Jazz / Xavier Henry SG, Kansas
10. Pacers / Ekpe Udoh PF, Baylor
11. Hornets / Ed Davis PF. UNC
12. Grizzlies / Luke Babbitt SF, Nevada
13. Raptors / Patrick Peterson PF, Kentucky
14. Rockets / Cole Adrich C, Kansas
15. Bucks / Gordon Haywood SF, Butler
16. Grizzlies (through trade) / Eric Bledsoe PG, Kentucky
17. Bulls / Elliot Williams SG, Memphis
18. Heat / Daniel Orton PF, Kentucky
19. Celtics / Dominique Jones G, USF
20. Spurs / Damion James SF, Texas
21. Thunder / Larry Sanders PF, VCU
22. Trail Blazers / Solomon Alabi C, Florida State
23. Bobcats (bought from T-Wolves) / Avery Bradley G, Texas
24. Hawks / James Anderson SG, Oklahoma State
25. T-Wolves / Kevin Seraphin PF, France
26. Thunder / Hassan Whiteside C, Marshall
27. Nets / Quincy Pondexter SF, Washington
28. T-Wolves / Stanley Robinson SF, UConn
29. Magic / Greivis Vasquez PG, Maryland
30. Wizards / Jordan Crawford SG, Xavier

A first round draft pick is 3 million or so. I do believe buying the pick and landing Avery Bradley would be an excellent investment. It would cost us around 4 million to draft and sign Bradley. Felton wants more than the 5.5 million he made last year. Soon enough i think we all would be saying Felton WHO???

2nd round coming soon.

I don't get the feeling that we'll buy a draft pick when the organization is hemorrhaging money. A trade is far more likely in my opinion. We can pretty much forget whoever we draft making an impact this year though; Larry Brown is still the coach of the Bobcats.

Yeah we are hemorrhaging money but if we rid ourselves of Diaw's contract, Tyson Chandler opts out and we not resign Felton we would actually be in pretty good shape. Also we have Nzar who is a soon to be expiring contract who could help a team till then. There are teams in a lot worse shape. The Celtics have 6 guys under contract and over the cap. The Pacers have a bunch of scrubs and are over the cap. It's not that bad really.

If, if, if. We're just as likely to have Chandler not opt out and not be able to trade Diaw unless we take back an equally crappy contract. Fact of the matter is that we're in cap hell right now, nobody knows what's going to happen yet and Jordan supposedly took on a lot of debt and the franchise lost over $10MM last year. It is that bad, and buying a first round pick for $3MM won't be a smart business move, especially when Coach Brown isn't going to play him.

Trading for a pick is one thing, but MJ has no business throwing money around trying to buy a pick, especially in the first round.

I would be happy with the Cats doing that.

I really doubt NJ takes Monroe over Favors, Favors might be the best player out of the entire draft in a few years. I think Wall is a little overrated.

Bobcats did the right thing by not buying a first round pick.

overall, Im happy with what the Hawks did. Damion James made no sense, then I saw the trade for Jordan Crawford.(Nets got Damion James, Hawks got Jordan Crawford and 31st pick Tibor Pleiss(traded to OKC for cash). then drafted Pape Sy in the 2nd. now we have Jamal and Jordan Crawford.
