    I am a big fan of Elfrid Payton. I think that kid is going to be a really good nba player in 2 or 3 years and will be highly serviceable until then.

    SPLASH! That's the type of player Chicago desperately needs.

    Sucks that Denver will pick 16 and 19 ... I don't think Jusuf Nurkic will survive those picks.

    Mcbuckets will have an multiple all star career. Remember this post and dig it up when all has come to fruition.

    the 5th highest college scorer of all time - 70% of his shots are contested and he still put up great numbers as the no 1 option.

    To be fair, that draft (2000) was much worse than last year's.

    So with the McBuckets trade does that mean they're out of the Melo race?

    Healthy Rose / Butler / McBuckets / Gibson / Noah is a great starting 5.
