who to pick....
If it's a choice between Love, and Randolph I would take Love. Although Randolph has a higher ceiling than Love does, Love it the type of player that makes a team better instantly. You know what you are going to get with Love. I am sure you all have seen Love play. AMAZING passing ability for a big. If Love was 6'1 200lbs we would be calling him one of the best PG in the draft. Loves boxout ability is the best in this years draft. He has the strength to get position and keep it. He doesn't out jump anyone though don't get me wrong. A lot of his rebounds come from getting position and keeping it and overpowering the opponent... Love has the passing ability of a Vlade Divac, hands of Chris Webber, and BBall IQ of a Kobe Bryant. Now if he had the athleticism of Gerald Wallace then he would be the complete package, but he doesn't.
I THINK that those three qualities outweigh the lack of athletic ability. Putting him on a team like the Bobcats will be a better fit because of the athleticism all around him.
who to pick....
Not feeling too good about Love being there at #9. I hope Westbrook is, but if he's gone, we may be taking Randolph and hope he becomes what they say he can.
oooooooooooooo gosh!!! cant believe it. #9? I think we should trade it...
If there can be no Love after all; then I'm just happy to heck and back to settle for Westbrook or Arthur. WOOT.
no mans land. we basically have to take a project if we go with a pf. damn damn damn
I agree. But dont discount Randolph yet. Also, if we can drop back a little to get an extra pick, then McGee would be very nice. An extra late first or early 2nd could prove beneficial. Lawson is being projected into the late 1st or early 2nd. Although I preach against going after too many UNC players, he'd be a great pick to back up Ray if we got him late first or early 2nd. JJ Hickson may last into the early 2nd so we have a shot at him in the 2nd, too. If we managed to get McGee and Hickson as options to play PF and Lawson as a back up PG, I'd be very happy with this draft. NOT AS HAPPY AS IF WE GOT BEASLEY - YOU CHICAGO BASTAR_S!!
This actually might be good.. The Bulls were interested in Kevin Love, and now that they are #1 there is one less team in the middle of the lottery that needs a PF.
I can see the Bulls happy with Beasley leaving Rose to the Heat.
Minny has a young PG in Foye so They either take the Dwane Wade'esque OJ Mayo to play the 2.
Seattle needs a PG so they take Bayless, and that drops Lopez to the Grizzlies who are VERY unhappy with Warrick playing PF (being that he's not a true PF) and Milicic hasn't panned out (yet?).
NYK has D'antoni who WANTS a scorer. That takes the re-incarnation of Allan Houston (i.e. Eric Gordon) off the board.
Clippers MIGHT take Love.. Gallinari is on the board still as well. Will the Clippers still have Brand after next season? Probably not. So this keeps Love in LALA land, and a good PF in the building after Brand leaves. But.. If they take Gallinari.......
That would leave Milwaukee taking Randolph to fill the hole at SF, and backup PF behind Yi.
Then you have the Bobcats.. DeAndre Jordan? Kevin Love? Anthony Randolph? Russell Westbrook? Darrell Arthur? (I am not a fan of Arthur's)..
