... and assuming our pick will be top 3 at least;
Does that change your mindset form best player available (ie. Maclemore) to drafting for need in a big (ie. Noel, Zeller, Olynik, Len)?

uh no. That would be stupid. Take the best player available. You rarely have a chance to draft a potential super star. If one is available you obviously don't pass on them. Needs can easily be had through free agency. Which they will be.

no, it would be stupid to ignore the PF/C position for the 4th year in a row

and im not so sure Maclemore is the best overall player/superstar- he seems passive in the tourney so far.. very passive- i want a killer with our #1 pick- esp if thats the #1 overall pick

McLemore has done everything possible to make me want Noel with the #1 pick.

I actually think all the top 5 or so prospects are good, but nobody stands out as number 1. Between Mclemore's disappearance in the tourney and Shabbazz becoming a year older, you could make a case for a few different players.

Hell if the draft were today, I wouldnt be opposed to drafting Len #1

No one had stood out with that wow factor thus far.

Hell I'd trade down and select Khaliff Wyatt out of Temple or Victor Oladipo from IU. Those are the most impressive players so far, in my opinion.

Oladipo or Zeller = me, happy

I was on the McLemore bandwagon, but he seems to lack a killer instinct, and seems to disappear at times.

As much as I hate to say it, I guess I'm on the Noel bandwagon. He won't play most of next season, so we
will suck again and have a high pick in 2014, which is supposedly a better draft.


so tired of losing though

With Henderson coming on strong, I'm all for resigning him and going Oladipo (a guy that I think can be top a 10 player at his position) and address power forwad and center in free agency.

I'll admit I wasn't a fan of Oladipo at first but after watching him these past two months, I can see that he has the IT factor.

I hope we don't get Portlands pick because this draft will be weak.

Idealy I say that it would be nice to trade down with Phoenix

Charlotte Receives
Pick #5 - Victor Oladipo
Pick #30- Gorgui Dieng
Future First

Phoenix Receives
Pick #1

F'it, no UK players. Trade MKG and get a pick.

I honestly like Zeller better than Maclemore as an overall prospect. He just seems to be more in the NBA 'mold' than Maclemore.

The #1 pick is likely to be Noel no matter who is picking. He has far more potential than anyone in the draft and plays the most sought after position in the NBA.

As of right now Portland's pick will be 13th (assuming they dont get a miracle draw when the lottery balls drop). Thus we would get the pick.

I kinda hope we don't get it now.

We have a real chance of having 3 picks in the 2014 draft which will have Wiggins, Parker, Randel and some talented foreign talent as well.
