My predictions on how the top 30 picks will happen on thursday night.
1. CHICAGO BULLS-MICHAEL BEASLY
Enough of this Derick Rose talk. The Bulls have Kirk Heinrich, Ben Gordon, and if worse comes to worse, Chris Duhon. With Beasly there potential starting line-up will be, Heinrich, Gordon, Deng, Beasly, Thomas. Beasly is a very talented player. He can do what ever you ask of him on the court. He should have absolutly no problems with the transition from college to the pros.
2. MIAMI HEAT-DERICK ROSE
Finally a Point Guard on the Miami Heat. Jason Williams is not that good, he is okay but not what an NBA team who is hoping to reach the finals, needs. Derick Rose is an awesome talent. Who will help D-Wade on offense. Wade said that he wants to play more off of the ball, and he cannot do that with the imcompatance that is Jason Williams. Rose will make his presence none very quickly in the NBA.
3. MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES-ERIC GORDON
Eric Gordon is amazing. He can hit jumpers like no one else can. He is exactly what the Timberwolves need. Well then again the Timberwolves need what ever they can get.
4. NEW YORK KNICKS(FROM SEATTLE)-O.J. MAYO
Breaking News-The NEW YORK KNICKS have made a smart pick. The new starting point guard for the Knicks is... Mayo is also very good. Definently some one who needed that one year of college to develop on his raw talent. Just because he was given treats and money does not mean that he is going to drop out of the top 5. C'Mon people this is O.J. we are talking about.
5. MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES-ANTHONY RANDOLPH
Will fit in nicely, with an organization in dire need of help.
6. SEATTLE or OKLAHOMA CITY SUPERSONICS-JERRED BAYLISS
Seattle or Oklahoma City needs a poit guard to help out Kevin Durant. This is a young team, who in a few years will make a run at the playoffs. Jeff Green, Kevin Durant and Jerred Bayliss wil llead this team for years to come.
7. LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS-KEVIN LOVE
What ever happened to the Clippers they were really good one year and now all of the sudden, they are doing horribly. Kevin Love will help this team generate some Offense i n the paint.
8. MILWAUKEE BUCKS-BROOKE LOPEZ
A ery skilled player at Stanford, there is no doubt in my mind that he will be succesfull in the pros.
9. CHAROLETTE BOBCATS-DARELL AURTHUR
A great guard from that national championship team Kansas, that will make what ever team he plays for good.
10. NEW JERSEY NETS-D.J. AUGUSTINE
He was an extremely talented guard, who made the right decision to go back to Texas for his sophmore year. Instead of going Pro with Durant. He dominated last this year, and will be a nice complement to the Vince Carter, and Richard Jefferson.
11. INDIANA PACERS-BRANDON RUSH
Maybe the best overall player in the draft besides Beasly and Rose. The MVP of the Kansas Jayhawks. A rare talent that will quickly take his game to the top of the NBA.
12. SACRAMENTO KINGS-DONTE GREEN
A great Freshamn who really developed his abilities at Syracuse. Eric Deavendorf the heart of the Orange got hurt, Green was called upon to lead the team, and his stepped into the rule well. He is a true leader.
13. PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS-JOE ALEXANDER
The West Virginia Mountaneers were virtually unknown. They weren't a lock for the tourney until he consistently dropped 25-35 points a night in the big east tourny, he begame the MVP of the Big East (cannot remember if he actually got an award). He can step up and be a leader of any team.
14. GOLDEN STATE-DANILO GALLINARI
Do not really no too much about him, other than he is a Center from Milano.
15. PHOENIX SUNS-DEANDRE JORDAN
A great Center from Texas A&M, the main point scorer for the Aggies. The main reason why they were in the tournament.
16. PHILADELPHIA 76ERS- RUSSLE WESTBROOK
He did well at UCLA, will fit in nicely on this young 76ERS team which is slowely on the rise.
17. TORONTO RAPTORS-KOSTA KOUFOS
A great Center from the Ohio State University (GO BLUE). Will be a nice back up to Chris Bosh.
18. WAHINGTON WIZARDS-ROBIN LOPEZ
The twin brother of Brooke another great Stanford Center.
19. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS-J.J. HICKSON
A PF from the Wolf pack.
20. DENVER NUGGETS-NICOLAS BATUM
Not sure who he is a SF from France.
21. NEW JERSEY NETS-MARIO CHALMERS
Kansas was great and has 4 players drafted in the Top 25. Chalmers was great, and never forget the shot he hit at the end of the Championship game.
22. ORLANDO MAGIC-MAREESE SPEIGHTS
A PF from Florida, worked out well in the Billy Donavan system.
23. UTAH JAZZ-RYAN ANDERSON
Led a decent Cal team to the tourney.
24. SEATTLE or OKLAHOMA CITY SUPPERSONICS-ROY HIBBERT
The only player who I think has ever hurt his draft stock, by going back to college for his senior or any year. He was a top 10 pick last year and now barely makes it in the top 25. He did not live up to the hype of what was supposed to be a monsterous senior year. What was supposed to be a year that would get him in the top 5 maybe even number one in the draft this year, just a dissapointment. Do not get me wrong getting drafted to got to the NBA is still a great feat. but just not where he could be.
25. HOUSTON ROCKETS-JAVAL MCGEE
Center from an ok Nevada team.
26. SAN ANTONIO SPURS-CHRIS DOUGLAS ROBERTS
Was the leader of the Memphis team. He was very good. He will be a top of the NBA for years to come.
27. NEW ORLEANS HORNETS-KYLE WEAVER
He made a decent Washington State team, into a good Washington State team. A 4 seed in the tourny is pretty good.
28. MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES-SERGEI IBANKA
A foreign PF.
29. DETROIT PISTONS-BILL WALKER
He was very good at K-State. A little underated due to the fact that he was the team mate of Michael Beasly.
30. BOSTON CELTICS-D.J. WHITE
Another Indiana player who prospered under Kelvin Sampson.
