How about "most accurately rated'?

i think the guy who will turn out to be the best player in the draft is brandon roy.

adam morrison will be a 15 to 20 ppg player in the nba.

people say jj redick won't be that good in the nba because he's not a great athlete... yet in the pre-draft combine JJ did very well. he is a very good athlete... not great, but very good. he's in excellent shape. on the flip side, no one says a word about marcus williams' athletic ability as a hinderance in the nba, yet he ranked as one of the worst athletes in the entire combine. you do the math...

i don't know a thing about bargnini... what i do know is that he won't be a star off the bat. no europeans are. even dirk wasn't. what he does afterwords, i have no idea.

tyrus thomas has stromile swift written all over him.

the biggest enigma in the draft is rudy gay. yes we all know... he has "tremendous upside potential." but does he have a heart? does he have the intensity to get it done night in and night out? he certainly never showed it in college... i have serious questions marks if he can all of a sudden turn it on now that he's getting paid to do it.

shelden williams probably doesn't have lottery talent. but he will be a solid 12-15 point, 8-10 rebound guy for his entire career. so in a draft filled with "what if's," taking a guy like that is not exactly a bad thing.

expect a lot of trades...

whatever else happens... the knicks will fuck something up.

There's speculation of a huge Boston-Philly-Utah trade going around, with Iverson in the mix

Redick's statement that he has a bulging disc pressing on a nerve is dropping his draft stock quickly.
Suddenly he looks like a mid rounder rather than a lottery pick.
Utah at 14 probably.

yes, i watched it when it was on tv. it's a joke. trautwig was interviewing his boss, and a boss who if you say anything bad about him or the company, you get fired.

journalism at it's finest

your boston celtics have traded the #7 pick to the trail blazers for sebastian telfair...

if you're looking for a reason why, i can't give you one.

So Bargnani it is.


And congratulations to namkcuR on LaMarcus.

Edit: Nevermind. I did not realize that the Bulls traded the pick.

i do believe this is a grand scheme by david stern to make isiah thomas look less stupid by having so many stupid trades and picks.

that david stern... evil genius.

Portland



that is all

(I'm not sure about Redick yet, since I've already been through the "Duke guy with a bad placement for an injury" thing. I hope he's good )

It's an ever more bitter pill to swallow when we actually draft LeMarcus and he puts on the Bulls hat and everything and all the while I'm sitting there knowing he'll never play a game for us.

I wanted him! Not Tyrus!
