CBS Sportsline has some great information on the draftees. Got to read some info on the Magic pick and he sounds perfect for Ron Jeremy's system.

Is Chris Douglas Roberts really not good enough to be a first round pick? I loved watching that guy play for memphis.

One cannot possibly be as sure about how a guy is going to fare in the NBA before he's even drafted as you seem to be about Beasley. He's not in the LeBron-Duncan 1000% sure thing category as you seem to think he is.
Yup, remember. Kurt Thomas put up big numbers in College Hoops too.

Ladies and gentleman, Isiah Thomas now has direct competition for the title of 'Worst GM Ever'. We always knew Kevin McHale was a terrible GM, but...

OJ Mayo, Marko Jaric, Antoine Walker, and Greg Buckner to Memphis for Kevin Love, Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal, and Jason Collins.

So, basically, Mayo and garbage for Love, Miller, and garbage.

Yes, Minnesota shaves off big-time salary in Walker and Jaric, but is it really worth it? You had a Jefferson/Mayo/Brewer trio waiting to happen.

Jefferson/Mayo would've been a great tandem.

Just unbelievable to me.

He can nail the money shot.

Anyone else get the impression that Brook Lopez might be dumber than a bag of rocks? I mean seriously.

Not sure I get where the Nets had a "brilliant" draft. They didn't make any moves, they just got fortunate (we'll see) and nabbed guys who dropped. That's not brilliance, it's luck...the sun shines on a dog's ass sometimes.

yes... mayo for love, miller and a whoooole lotta cap space in 2 years.

that's why the deal was done... and i love mike miller, and love is going to be very good in his own right. so basically minnesota traded an undersized 2 for a lights out, under-rated shooter in miller, a fundamentaly sound big in love to put next to jefferson, and a couple of expiring contracts that will put them under the cap in short order.

obviously if mayo becomes a star then the deal won't look good... but if love, too, becomes a star... well then, minnesota wins 'cause they got more parts.


and to be technical mchale's the vp of basketball operations... not the GM. so steve kerr and john paxson still may lead the running for biggest douche-a-rama GM currently employed.

he did miss some time for academic reasons... i don't neccesarily think their draft was that brilliant, based soley on my dislike for all things lopez.

i did like the pick of anderson though... and douglas-roberts is a good risk for a 2nd rounder.


the team that may have gotten the steal of the 2nd round are your boston celtics... bill walker was highly touted in high school but an ACL injury set him back significantly. if he can have a full recovery than Boston may have just gotten a lottery player in the late 2nd round.


how about darrell arthur... almost slips out of the 1st round and then gets traded three times.

Yeah odd draft for Arthur.

I like the Walker move. The Celts seem to be rolling the dice all over the place with these risk/reward guys going all the way back to Powe. If they hit on either Walker's health or Giddens staying in line they'll be doing very well considering where they were picking. I thought they'd go with Douglas-Roberts at #30 honestly.

douglas-roberts isn't worth a gauranteed contract... i thought he'd go earlier in the 2nd round but he certainly wasn't going to be a 1st round pick.

When I found out who the Sixers drafted, my first concern was his wingspan and his toolbox.

We're both Sixers fans. It unnerves me a bit that we have some sort of common rooting interest.

I'm glad, actually. It achieves some sort of balance.
