Charlotte have been missing McRoberts, this is a good pick for them, I like the guy.

Winslow to the Heat.... hmmm.... bye bye Wade?

Woah, we got Justise Winslow!


Things have turned out better than expected . Didn't really want Stanley Johnson, who was the player I was expecting the Heat to get

Pacers pick is a strange one

Looks like Milwaukee is going to trade one of their picks to get Greivis Vasquez from Toronto.

Listening to these agent prepped interviews of new draftees is mundane and irksome. Everyone has a chip on their shoulder, thinks they are the best player in the draft, and is ready to win a championship.

What else are you supposed to say tho? I'm prolly going to be a role player off the bench hopefully a solid one. Probably languish with the Knicks and then get traded halfway through an albatross contract cuz you know the knicks

How about something honest

This is a long journey, and lots of things have to go my way to be successful in this league. Being humble and learning from the quality around me is the most important thing I can do. I'll take my minutes when they come and will put the work in to make my career more than just the luck of the draw. A lot of guys think getting drafted is a dream come true, I'll say that once I prove myself productive at this level.

I actually like the Russell pick for the Lakers. I think he's incredibly talented. Okafor is good too, but I think it's a guard's league right now. Other than the Spurs who play great team ball and space the floor with 4 shooters plus a HOFer, all the other champions have played 5 shooters.

 

I feel like Charlotte always makes a bad pick; when was their last good one?

 

I think Rozier for Boston was a mistake. I think Jerian Grant is going to be a starting quality PG.

 

Not sure why Atlanta keeps trading down - I think they need a #1 or #2 option on a playoff team. Really missing someone who can just get points for them and put pressure on opposing defenses. Not sure if Hardaway is that guy. Hardaway is like James Jones. They could've gotten Portis or Looney (or Dekker with their original pick).

 

I really don't like Delon Wright. He just seems like a very passive player - kind of like Rondo. I think every other 1st or 2nd round PG in this draft is better than him.

They got the best value for their draft spot.

Otherwise, seriously... 4 fucking hours to complete the first round? This is stupid.

Of course it's subjective but Value pick is a middle - late first round pick. Getting winslow at 10 is a steal
