BRNC's Draft breakdown of these 6 guys
These six players are currently listed in the "mocking the draft" as being drafted before we pick. K. Irving and D. Williams have not been included since we know almost all of us would take either if they were available. You can pick up to three of the six listed players to draft if they "fell" you our #9 draft slot. If you'd like to please give a brief reason why you'd draft your players.
1)Knight....long run (IMO) better than DJ...
2)Valanciunas...could easily turn into the best "bag man" from this draft...and
3)Leonard...guy is just a freak...he could (if he chooses to work at it) be a special player...
I went with Leonard, Kemba and Canter. Canter you just can't pass on, you just can't, he's a big ol dude and he was all world before all that Kentucky shit. Walker is a freakin winner, a shooter, a slasher and a scorer, I liked his game out of everybody(probably the only guy I watched play more than highlights). We went on a run of drafting national champions and players of the year, he'd be mine if he fell, no doubt. Leonard is so intriguing to me. When people compare him to Gerald Wallace I get excited. Don't know much about him but a few people have really started drooling over him. I'm a sucker for hype, I'll admit it, especially around the draft but for consistency you can count on right away I think you can't go wrong with those 3.
Big...the reason I pass on Canter are the knees...same reason I would have taken Durant over Oden...big guys with knee problems (before they even get to the NBA) never seems to bode well...

NBA Combine medical examination results are slowly trickling out. We must proceed w/caution, but appears Enes Kanter's knee checked out fine.

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
Kanter: Will be the Center we want for 10 years
Knight: PG with much higher ceiling than DJ
Vesely: SF/PF with 3rd highest ceiling of the players listed.
Leonard: I see him as raw talent, genuinely polite, and desire to improve parts of his game that others question
Kanter: We desperately need a big (it's worth the gamble)
Knight: See Ohara's comment above, DJ was much 'healthier' this season than the prior 2 (so until he proves he's durable, more assistance is appreciated)
