Once workouts start who knows what'll happen. Best case scenario is to work a trade with Portland. Man, Hornets get #1 and #9...good to be a fan of them now. Didn't someone the up getting a lottery pick for Gerald Wallace? The Cats gave hiim away didn't they?

This draft is basically Lebron James at #1 and Darko-fuging-Milicic as #2

That's how much of a dropoff between the top player and the second in this draft. Whoever this team chooses at #2 will be solely potential based, which fuging blows.

Drummond fits the bill.

This garbage is hilarious. Prior to the tournament, it wasn't even a slam dunk that Anthony Davis was going to be the first overall pick in his own draft class and now people are acting like we missed out on LeBron or Durant. It makes zero sense. Not saying that Davis will not be a good professional, he will, but don't act like he's a game changer when we don't even know if dude can score at the next level with any kind of consistency. The gap between picks 1, 2, and 3 are razor thin. We're going to get a damn good player regardless.

what? davis was talked about as the #1 pick long before the start of the tournament.

Anthony Davis is an overrated by-product of ESPN. Just 1 year ago McAdoo was dominating him in the all-star games & Davis was being labeled a bust/overrated prospect. Losing out on him is a blessing in disguise much like when the Panthers lost out on Andrew Luck.

To win championships in the NBA you must have a superstar. Duncan, Kobe, Wade, Durant, LeBron, Rose etc. There isn't a single player in this draft with Davis or the previous 2 drafts with Wall & Irving who represent that. The next prospect who fills that role is Shabazz Mohammed. Jordan needs to take the risk needed & get Shabazz. Trade the #2 & Augustin to Washington for their 2013 #1. Next year you either win the lottery & get Shabazz or you have 3 top 10 picks, future 1st round picks, & players as trade bait to move up.

shabazz mohammed hasn't played ANY college ball and you're sitting here saying that he's a better prospect than davis/wall/irving? gtfo

"Talked about as being", not "wow this is beyond doubt a franchise player". That was my point. There were a group of four or five guys that had a claim to being the first overall pick halfway through the CBB season. At the end of the day, about 15 games decided where those guys were slotted. Who is to really say that one will undoubtedly be better than the others.

My question is there any chance that New Orleans doesn't take Davis?

None of that is remotely true, unless you think Anthony Davis is comparable to Lebron as a prospect (he's not) and you think Drummond is getting drafted number 2 (oh god I hope not)

This draft is deep and Davis is not the 2nd coming of Jesus. Plenty of talented player to be had

That's a Charlotte Hornets hat. He got it from some friends that live in Charlotte and him and his family were very hopeful he would be able to play for MJ in Carolina.

This would be a perfect draft for us if this team were selecting at 9 or 15. The problem is we're not.

Outside of Davis there are NO franchise worthy players in this draft. Tons of talent and potential is not saving next season.

MY comparison very easily holds true here, NO will be getting there Lebron/Kobe/Durat/Duncan while we'll be getting our Milicic or second rate high potential pipe dream player.

Drummond very easily fits the bill of that second rate high potential high bust rate type player. This draft is stocked in potential, but MJ needed his seat filler, and he got butt fuged yesterday.

Thats silly, hell the draft you keep bringing up had Wade, Melo, and Bosh all go after Darko- and plenty of people thought Darko was the better prospect. Stop speaking in absolutes, you sound silly. There is a decent chance Anthony Davis is not the best player in this draft. And I'd bet money that he wont win rookie of the year

This draft has plenty of talent in the top 5 and there will absolutely be multiple all stars to come out of it. Anthony Davis was not turning around the Bobcats next season, stop being so melodramatic

I'm speaking in absolutes yet your entire whitewall of rehashed nonsense doesn't attack any of my main points. You're the only person who doesn't believe that Anthony Davis isn't the top player in this draft, due to your naivety or not that's absolute horse poo.

And I'm going to repeat myself yet again, Jordan is going to miss out on his Cam Newton and get stuck with a Marcell Dareus or worse this year. Which isn't entirely bad, but for this franchise it will definitely be felt.

And shame on you for comparing any persons in this draft outside of Anthony Davis to the other notable players of the 2003 draft. That's fuging stupid.
