If my Clippers take the Russian kid Koralev, like sources say, I think I'm going to cry.

Not really. It's probably the deepest draft 3-4 years. There may not be instant stars like Wade, Lebron, and Melo', but it's got solid talent all the way into the second round.


yeah, they actually did a segment about 2nd round bargins available in the draft on sportscenter today. there are some very good players who could become solid NBAers coming out of the 2nd round


They're saying Salim could go in the 2nd round, and I don't care what they say, whoever gets that guy is getting an absolute STEAL.

I don't think Bogut should go first overall. I think he's ok (and very overrated), but Marvin Williams has a much higher ceiling. Bogut is going to be like the Kandi man, a decent player that doesn't ever amount to that much.


Nate Robinson is also in the draft, unless he withdrew and I didn't hear it. He will be a steal. The next Speedy Claxton.


Nope, Nate didn't withdraw, and i agree that who ever gets him will be very happy. I'm a big Pac-10 guy (die-hard stanford fan) and i can tell you, that guy is one special player. he'll have some problems defensively, but will easily make up for it with the athleticism and energy he will bring to the team.

I don't really follow basketball too much, but from what I saw I have to agree. He was playing a cup-cake conference for the most part this year and while he did carry the team, it wasn't really that much of an accomplishment. That being said, he is more NBA ready at this point than Williams so it's a pretty tough spot for the Bucks. I'd almost like to have the second or third pick so the decision would be easier, just take the one left out of Bogut, Williams, and Paul. :*)

I hope the Raptors take Danny Granger with the #7 pick, and then take either Andrew Bynum or Joey Graham at #16.

In the 2nd round, I hope they can get one of 2 guys: Nate Robinson and Salim Stoudamire.

I guess MIL doesn't need him with Ford supposedly coming back healthy, but I would much rather take the top point guard over potential in Williams and a lot of hype in Bogut, but that's just me. I guess it's the fantasy player in me, but if I had the number one pick I'd always be looking to trade down and turn it into 3-4 top 20 picks unless there was a talent like LeBron who can come in and contribute immediately at the highest level, which just isn't the case this year.
