Not the best draft to get the #1 pick. There will be a few good players but overall really a bad year. If I was Cleveland I would try to trade down a couple of picks and take Porter. Drafting a 7 foot 206 pound guy coming off a major ACL injury seems too risky to me. Noel is good but is he really THAT special?

i agree. no superstars, but a lot of solid players. im a fan of Noel's but i agree about his ACL being worrisome. Bennett coming off of shoulder surgery, too.

Otto Porter could be the one selected #1 overall. I really like Victor Oladipo. Reminds me of Jrue Holiday.

It's weird doing my hw on this draft knowing that the Warriors aren't even selecting.

Makes me feel less bad about LeBron leaving Cleveland. The Gilbert family is full of douches.

Was Machine Gun Kelly sitting next to Gilbert? If so, why?
I thought that kid was dying that's why I thought he was there


Oh well, the Suns will tank again next season for that elusive # 1 pick. Hopefully Sarver sells the team to a competent owner in the meantime.
1. Cavaliers; Nerlens Noel PF/C Kentucky
2. Magic: Ben McLemore SG Kansas
3. Wizards: Otto Porter SF Georgetown
4. Hornets (yeah, we're calling them that again) Victor Oladipo SG Indiana
5. Suns: Anthony Bennett SF/PF UNLV

This is an interesting spot for Orlando, which has a roster loaded with young talent. If Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart had stayed in the draft, he would have been a natural fit. National Player of the Year Trey Burke is out there, but would GM Rob Hennigan take him at No. 2? Incumbent shooting guard Arron Afflalo has three years and $23 million left on his contract, but it will be difficult for the Magic to pass on McLemore, a Ray Allen-type shooter with superior athleticism.

Come on down Ben!

Stumbled across this 30 for 30 on Reggie Miller. They were showing clips of when reggie's pacers lost in the ECF to the knicks. Saw about 5 things in the short few scenes I saw that would get players T'd up or tossed in today's game. lol

Was thinking the same thing when I was watching that. People would be suspended for games for some of the stuff they did back then
Just because I know many of you don't visit the Magic thread...

Thoughts on McLemore to the Magic? I keep hearing he isn't a great fit and I just don't understand. Their biggest need is PG, but I don't think they'd take Trey Burke at 2. We kinda have a log jam at SG/SF/PF right now with Afflalo, Harkless, Harris, Nicholson.

Afflalo can play SG/SF
Harkless can play SG/SF
Harris SF/PF
Nicholson PF

I personally wish they'd just trade Afflalo and roll with Nelson/McLemore/Harkless/Harris/Vucevic

Pete, crzy, others...thoughts? I really hope they get the St. Louis kid McLemore..remember reading about this guy on St. Louis websites..the dude gets compared to Ray Allen. Regardless, the Magic have something special going

If I read your GMs approach correctly, he's not going to be worried about about fit at this point in time. You worry about fit once your core is in place, and with cheaper players, but in Orlando's position you just draft BPA. You guys are about to start Year 2 of about a 4 year rebuild. McLemore reminds me a bit of a young Jason Richardson. He needs to improve his ball handling, but he's a helluva shooter and great in transition. He'd be a good pickup for Orlando.

That said, I've read that Cleveland is shopping the #1 pick, so he might not be available if a trade is made an another team likes him.

LMAO!

Same here. It went from me thinking he was dying to him being mentally disabled in some way. Then he was boasting about the first pick and I figured he was just a joto
