    I've been away a while, but I thought Noah was going back to school. This is the worst mock draft I've ever seen!!! :eek:

    I am very intrigued by Bargnani and think he could be a perfect PF fit with Yao and Tracy on offense. The problem is it may take a couple of years for him to be really productive. If he's the real deal, Bargnani could finally give us a PF mismatch every night, IN OUR FAVOR.

    Gay is a tremendous talent and I just don't know if it's possible to pass him up at #8. I see an energetic guy on the break who can slam down a few. I see someone who's length on the perimeter would be tremendous.

    It's doubtful either of these two are available at #8. If BOTH of them were, I lean towards Gay right now but, yes, I admit to drinking the Kool-Aid that Bargnani could develop into a Dirk-like offensive player. Problem is I don't think he would contribute a whole lot (esp on defensive) his first couple of years.

    Ok here's how it goes:

    If we draft Aldridge:
    We hope to trade one of Stro or Howard.
    We hope to obtain a SG.
    We hope that Aldridge pans out with Yao.
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Tyrus:
    We hope this isn't Stro v.2, Stro did the same thing in college.
    We hope to trade one of Stro or Howard.
    We hope to obtain a SG.
    We hope that Tyrus pans out with Yao.
    We hope that he isn't foul prone (he looks like it)
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Morrison:
    We hope his defense is enough.
    We hope he makes his shots as he did in college.
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Gay:
    We hope he can also score, our D isn't a problem as much as our O is.
    We hope he has the heart to improve, heart = championships.
    We hope he isn't Darius Miles part 2.
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Bargnani:
    We hope he isn't another failed Euro experiment (Boki)
    We hope he doesn't take years.
    We hope he isn't soft.
    We hope his D will be enough.
    We hope his transition from Euro Bball to NBA goes well.
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Shelden:
    We hope to trade one of Stro and Howard.
    We hope to obtain a SG.
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Carney:
    We hope he isn't as stupid as Swift.
    We hope he isn't inconsistent, like our current role players already are.
    We hope he has the heart to improve (improve his freaking ball-handling... he can only dribble with his right)
    We hope he isn't soft, rarely drives in when opponents are there.
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    If we draft Roy:
    We hope Yao+T-Mac doesn't get injured.

    and we will be safe.

    So... which one do we "hope" the least? Which one has the fewest questions?

    Brandon Roy it is.

    This is all assuming they each drop or we land the top 3 for the top 3 calibur ones.

    Great idea - Baron and Starbury and Stevie and no balls among them!
