NBA Draft & Honorable Mentions

Hey athletes, today the NBA draft was held in New Jersey and there were some expected picks, and some unexpected ones. Heres the results of the top 30 with honorable mentions. I also have some thoughts on the picks.

1 Hornets- Anthony Davis                                    He can get maybe 18 points,,,, I say overrated on offense, defense great

2 Bobcats- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist                    He established himself as the leader at Kentucky, can compliment Kemba

3 Wizards- Bradley Beal                                         This guy can put it up. He can open up the lane for John Wall in Washington

4 Cavaliers- Dion Waiters                                      I didn’t think Waiters would go this high, but he can shoot

5 Kings- Thomas Robinson                                  Robinson had the most double-doubles in the nation this last year

6 Trail Blazers- Damian Lillard                      From Weber St. he didn’t face great defenses, but was 2nd in the nation in PPG

7 Warriors- Harrison Barnes                            He’s a very good jumpshot taker. He can also defend with excellence

8 Raptors- Terrence Ross                        Really jumped up the board this past day and a half, a good scorer with good hands

9 Pistons- Andre Drummond                  Drummond may not hit free throws but his defensive presense can benefit Detroit

10 Hornets- Austin Rivers                          I think overrated, but Rivers led Duke in points last year with some clutch shots

11 Trail Blazers- Meyers Leonard             The big man from Illinois, only averaged about 8 RBP. I thought the could’ve done better

12 Rockets- Jeremy Lamb                            He can shoots the ball which is what Houston really needs

13 Suns- Kendall Marshall                   If the Suns resign Nash, Marshall can learn, If the Suns don’t he can fill the gap nicely

14 Bucks- John Henson                           Great defender with outstanding length

15 76ers- Maurice Harkless

16 Rockets- Royce White

17 Mavericks- Tyler Zeller (traded to Cleveland)

18 Rockets- Terrence Jones

19 Magic- Andrew Nicholson

20 Nuggets- Evan Fournier

21 Celtics- Jared Sullinger

22 Celtics- Fab Melo

23 Hawks- John Jenkins

24 Cleveland- Jared Cunningham (traded to Dallas)

25 Memphis- Tony Wroten Jr.

26 Indiana- Miles Plumlee

27 Heat- Arnette Moultrie (traded to Philadelphia)

28 Thunder- Perry Jones III

29 Bulls- Marquis Teague

30 Warriors- Festus Ezeli

Honorable Mentions

34 Cavaliers- Jae Crowder (traded to Dallas)       Actually surprised Crowder dropped to 2nd round, great rebounder

35 Warriors- Draymon Green                              Steal of the draft. Can rebound, assist, and score with ease.

That is one of deepest drafts in years.

Later Bacon!
