    Now we talkin! Off the top of my head there appears to be 7 or 8 good "big" men comin out next draft. All of em ain't centers, but we outta be able to snag one of em.

    I'd take that bet.

    Even if I lost, this rook will still be better for US than Darko was.

    Mustafa Shakur has really picked up his game this year and is projected at NBADraft.net (as of today) to be a mid-second round pick.

    ESPN.com: Arizona Wildcats - Mustafa Shakur Player Card

    The Pistons worked him out last year but passed on him. Everyone loves a Lute Olsen (Arizona) player, so I think he will either get some interest with the Pistons second round pick if still available,get drafted higher (the Pistons own 1st rounder) or totally ignored if they saw something they didn't like. The kid has the size and scoring skills to play in Flip's offense.

    Looks like Mustafa and the Cats come to Washington on January 4th. I'm going to see if I can snag some tickets for this game. If I can, I will give a scouting report.

    theres a bunch of SF's going in the 15-20 range. wouldnt mind one of those so we can finally get a backup for Tay.

    NBAdraft.net has Joe utilizing the "shotgun approach" in drafting 3 point guards with our three picks.

    The highlights.

    15 -Stuckey drafted with Nick Young and Acie Law still on the board.

    27-Aaron Brooks? drafted with literally everyone else including Morris Almond on the board. What a vote of confidence for your #15 pick front office guys.

    And then we throw the #57 away with yet another PG fresh off of hip surgery?

    Are these guys for real or is this their vote of disconfidence in Joe Dumars?

    I like their information. its not entirely inaccurate. but its not looking at every team as closely as some others seem to be.

    I guess they are the "Detroit Pistons" of mock draft boards.

    It shouldn't be too difficult to construct a matrix with team needs (by position) and player value intersecting to show maybe a less popular mock, but certainly one that is a conversation starter.

    Joe will not draft 3 PGs. When Lindsey retires we will actually become a more organized offensive team. lmao

    I have a feeling we will get a mega athletic SF. If you look at how the draft seems to be shaking out, Minny is reported to be favoring Hawes, Atlanta; Crittenton at 11, LA Clippers possibly Law...you end up pushing the other guys down. Stuckey over Thornton? I dunno. They want a guy that can create his own shot. so it could be feasible to get a scoring wing.

    If you want to know who we plan on drafting listen to McCoskey when he is on WDFN. He called the Jason Maxiell pick, and nobody was expecting that one.

    McCosky and Bob Wojnowski (Wojo).

    They both have the inside track on the local team's picks. Wojnowski does this thing where they play this music and he keeps saying OHM, OHM and they call him Wojodamus. He picked the Ernie Sims pick for the Lions, and the Calvin Johnson pick this year I believe.

    IMO we need to come away with our next PG. We will probably never draft this high until the wheels come off. SF's are plentiful and easy to come by. but the talent difference may be too high to pass up an al type player.

    Here is a couple predictions from sites:

    DraftExpress: Mock Draft

    2007 NBA Mock Draft - HoopsVibe

    2007 NBA DRAFT | MOCK DRAFT ver 7.0 | HOOPSWORLD.com | NBA News and Information | powered by Basketball News Services

    InsideHoops.com - NBA Mock Draft


    I was watching a few Greg Oden interviews, I came across one where he expresses that he thinks staying in college will help him develope more so he is ready for NBA, i wonder what happend..maby his ego grew...

    Ideas: (IF AL THORTON IS NOT AVAILABLE)-Tiago Spliter | Spencer Hawes

    I really hate all of this Tiago Splitter prediction stuff in some mock draft. The guy seems like a stiff.
