    The difference is that CB has about 75K on him and he's a Mercedes.

    I guess he's a Mercedes with 5 different owners though... and some time in Minnesota, which can really hurt the resale value.

    LOL. I guess it's OK as long as I have the maintenance records and a CarFax report.

    I didn't know Steve Blake was a FA. Don't get duped, steveblake is a very good penetrating guard, good defense and can shoot the three pointer with pin point accuracy.

    I watched this guy while at MD, with the Wizards, Portland and Denver, he is an above average passer with good court vision.

    Litle Earl- he is fast, accurate and can penetrate better than most guards twice his size. I would definitely like this pickup.

    He torched the pistons and everyone else throughout the league.

    I had Steve Blake on my radar screen too. Solid ball handler and passer. Pure point guard.

    I had Blake on my fantasy team and I was quite contend with the stats he had put up- he can shoot the ball pretty good and is decent at assists if given the minutes.
    Joe D could get him, draft a decent big at #15 and the best player available at #27.

    I like Earl Boykins, he plays with heart. When our guys start playing lazy and low energy, he could spark them, he's 31 though, nothing long-term... I do see the league favoring small guards, a la Gibson, Tony Parker and the like.

    Whose the most NBA-ready Center-like player in the draft? A guy to backup Rasheed

    Are you sure that's your question?

    Answer: Greg Oden

    Haha, good answer... a guy who could potentially fall to us at 15... somebody we dont have to develop... like Oden, but not him, i think he'll go top 10 lol

    Jason Smith, Tiago Splitter, Sean Williams.

    There really is no one you don't have to develop outside of the top 5.

    Sean is reported as a potential lottery pick but got kicked out for some misdemeanor. questions abound over his character.

    I'd take the risk on him at #27, 5.0bpg sits nicely with me.

    hells yeah. we're on the cusp of blowing the team up. go for broke on this draft and see if it pans out. if it doesn't I don't know how adding some fringe guy is going to carry this team over the top.

    I like that 5 bpg... really i think the direction the league is going, we need a smart, defensive, agile center. Otherwise we'll have a big, constantly in foul trouble, bench-man.

    So PG at 15 and C at 27. Sounds right to me. Their is no big man that is good enough to be the 15th pick from what I see (Except for the lottery picks Oden, Durant etc.) Noah has dropped, but he should be top 10 still.

    If things don't work out for Chauncey here, Marcus Camby. Pursue Camby.

    He's not young but he's actually coming off a good year, plus he's that stopper we need in the post.
