It was a fairly weak draft, and Gallinari projected in the top 10 based on what he had done with the Euro League. He's not going to be a franchise player at that pick (and if they were expecting that, they are just way off), but I'd be surprised if he wasn't a good player for them.



This was actually considered a pretty deep draft. Most drafts do not have more than 2 or three franchise players. Last year there were 2 guys projected to be franchise players. The year before had only Brandon Roy (others may develop, but Roy is the only very good player so far). 2005 had Williams and Paul. Of course more franchise players may develop out of those drafts, but right now those are the only guys you could really consider on the path to superstars. This draft considered deep because there were a bunch of guys who project to be good players.

I've read all about what the draft was supposed to be, but I just didn't see it. Jason Thompson, Brandon Rush, Anthony Randolph, Robin Lopez, Javale McGee, JJ Hickson all mid 1sts? %-6

I watched a lot of Memphis last year, and I never really was ever that impressed with CDR's game. I really don't know if he has the skills to consistently play in an NBA rotation, and I guess many GM's questioned the same thing.

The Rooster is throwing out the first pitch today at Shea. Wonder if they will boo him again? :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

i could see him being a ben wallace type clone.


Me too, except he'll probably take some nights off. I would be scared of a cat like that with a wad of cash in his pocket!
