Hello, all you fellow GMs reading this. Now, if you are someone who is a little inexperienced at drafting (like Cavs GM Danny Ferry) or just a total wackjob who has a serious mental disorder, and who probably thinks hiding behind a stop sign is a good hiding place in hide and seek (cough, cough, Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace), then I'll help you with these easy tips. But please, don't tell Stephen A. Smith I've been making your picks. I don't want word getting out. So here you go. Follow these rules, and you'll never draft another Sam Bowie or Christian Laetnner again.
1. Never draft a white guy. In the NBA Drafts from 2002 to 2006, we have had these White guys drafted high: Adam Morrison, Luke Ridnour, Andrea Barnagni, JJ Reddick, Andrew Bogut, Luke Jackson, Robert Swift, Darko Milicic, Zarko Chabarkapa (my favorite player), Mike Dunleavy, and Nikoloz Tskitishvili. Need I say more? Okay, name all of the white guys that are stars in the NBA. Um, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, and, um....is Larry Bird still playing? There is basically no reward for these picks, and they basically never become stars. WHY DO THEY KEEP GETTING DRAFTED?!?!?!?!?
THIS KNOCKS OUT: Brook Lopez, Kevin Love, Robin Lopez, Kosta Koufos, Joe Alexander, Danilo Gallinari.
2. At least LOOK at how they played in college. We've seen it before. A workout warrior, who comes out of nowhere after averaging 6 points and 3 rebounds for Southwest Missouri State, and then goes #5 to the Clippers. DON'T DO IT! Here's a weird thought: maybe if someone can play good, then they could become a good player. No, really? Look at how they played in college. Remember Andrew Bogut? Ya, I thought so. Go for the good college player.
THIS KNOCKS OUT: Anthony "Trust Me, He'll Be the Next Enormous Draft Bust, You Can Take My Word for It" Randolph, OJ Mayo, Kosta Koufos (two for two!) Mareese Spreights.
Thats all for now. I may update later.
