    Default 2008 NBA Draft Contest winner is Avoidingtheclowns

    SEE POST 51 FOR THE RESULTS

    The NBA draft is June 26 and will be televised from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. on ESPN, eastern time.

    GUESS THE DRAFT CONTEST

    RULES
    1] This contest will only cover the 14 picks in the lottery.

    2] Your picks have to be made by 7:00 eastern time on June 26. You may edit your picks as many time as you like as long as your last edit is by the 7:00 p.m. deadline.

    3] There are a total of 31 points available. You get one point for each player you have in the correct position. This means if you pick someone going 5th in the draft he has to be picked 5th. What team picks him doesn't matter.

    You get one point for each player you have in your draft, that gets picked, regardless of position. (That means if you pick Eric Gordon going at pick 6 and he's picked at 7 you get a point regardless of which team picked him. If you have 14 players all in the wrong position you would still get 14 points.)

    You get three bonus points for getting the Pacers pick correct. (Edit; You only get the bonus for getting the Pacers pick in the lottery correct, not at 17. If they should acquire another pick in the lottery I'll count that.)

    4]The first tie breaker is getting the Pacers pick correct.
    The second tie breaker is the most correct picks.
    The third tie breaker is the earliest correct pick, then second earliest correct pick, third earliest correct pick, etc. (This means if you pick the first three picks correctly and then you miss number four, and the other person picks the first four correctly, they win.)

    [1] Chicago .................Rose

    [2] Miami ....................Beasley
    I think Miami will take Beasley and then trade with Minnesota which assures them of getting Mayo. They will get another player and doing it this way means Mayo won't cost as much if they drafted him themselves.

    [3] Minnesota ..............Mayo

    [4] Seattle .................B. Lopez

    [5] Memphis ................Gordon

    [6] New York ...............Gallinari

    [7] LA Clippers .............Westbrook

    [8] Milwaukee ..............Alexander

    [9] Charlotte ................Love

    [10] New Jersey ...........R.Lopez

    [11] Indiana ................Bayless

    [12] Sacramento ..........Augustin

    [13] Portland ...............Rush
    I think the surest thing in this draft is this pick will be traded, so anybody could go here.

    [14] Golden State ........Ajinka



    17]
    Pacers .................Hibbert

    Default Re: 2008 NBA Draft Contest

    Cool initiative, Will . I'll join in.

    [1] Chicago ............ Rose.
    Though Beasley makes good sense for them aswell, but I'm guessing they will go with the hometown player along with Rose playing at a more difficult position to fill in.

    [2] Miami ................ Beasley. Great talent, maybe will get traded by Miami, maybe he won't, but he won't go below two whatever happens. I don't buy Mayo going above Beasley for a single second.

    [3] Minnesota ......... Mayo. Sure they allready are well-filled there, but he's the best player on the board and has a huge ceiling on top of the huge quality he obviously allready had. Love is IMO definitely a smoke-screen. I don't see Minnesota ending up with Love unless if they make a trade down with another team a little lower. Maybe a team that likes Mayo a lot and could pick Love for Minnesota. Even if not then still Mayo is a major addition even if they have the position well-covered. And they could still make moves at SG in the summer.

    [4] Seattle ............... Bayless. Could go third to Minnesota, but somehow... I dunno. Seattle seems like a good fit. I think they will keep one of either Watson and Ridnour, while shopping the other. Just not buying the talk of Seattle maybe going for Lopez at all.

    [5] Memphis ........... Lopez. Sure, he might not go top-3, but I see more then enough teams that might have a LOT of interest in this guy playing at a tough position to fill. I think Memphis has been looking for a decent center for years and years now and the need on their frontcourt for a quality player has only increased with Gasol getting traded away for scraps. They might go for Love, but for now I choose to believe that is a smoke-screen and they will go for the legit 7-footer.

    [6] New York ........... Gordon. Sort of a surprise maybe to see him picked by New York, but we have first experience in Indiana with names ending up on our team we hadn't really seriously considered before and turning out solid to spectacular. Now the guy most responsible for that here is in New York. I'm hearing too much Westbrook and Gallinari to think it will be them who will be picked by Donnie. Gordon has huge offensive potential, is still very young, so can be molded, has a good character and easily has NBA 3pt range. My earlier pick, Randolph seems to be sliding on every single draft mock I have seen the past two weeks, indicating his workouts aren't going too well and there are some questions regarding his motivation to persevere. That all combined would probably make him too much of a risk for the Knicks at such a high position.

    [7] LA Clippers ....... Russell Westbrook a talent with big upside at the spot they need reeinforced most. Picking Gordon or Gallinari (whom I had here before) would definitely help them aswell, especially if Maggette does bolt, but at PG they are atrocious at the moment and Westbrook also adds another perimeter defender next to Ross. Is a local player from UCLA.

    [8] Milwaukee ......... Alexander. Rapidly emerged in the second half of the college season and has had good workouts. Had Gordon here before, but EVERY site with a mock draft has the last two weeks pencilled Alexander in here and kept him there. I'm trusting on them to be right this time ().

    [9] Charlotte ............ Love. I had Augustin pencilled in here before, but then I remembered they have Larry friggin Brown over there now and Larry friggin Brown doesn't LIKE rookie PG's! And considering that Love had good workouts and the Bobcats have to be massively dissappointed in Sean May and want to get Okafor some help upfront makes them picking Love (or Lopez depending which one is still there) and more logical choice, while they help the (back up) PG spot through free agency, preferably an experienced veteran Brown can work with. Then there's the thing that the Bobcats seem to have a serious hard-on for college heroes and Love (aswell as Lopez) fit that bill perfectly.

    [10] New Jersey ..... Gallinari. Probably the best talent left and has good upside, has shown leadership with his pro-team in Italy as a youngster this season and makes dealing Jefferson "easier" for them should it come to that.

    [11] Indiana ............. Speights. I think everyone is focusing on a PG, but I don't think there's that many Guards the Pacers would be interested in and atleast one of two that they might want will be gone. I hope Augustin will be the one picked, because I think us not beying ABLE to pick him would be a good thing (). Westbrook is the other obvious candidate that we could make a go at. I'm betting on Speights though (with some convincing from some around here I freely admit ), while I think they will go with a player more ready to contribute straight away at #17 (Chalmers, Rush, Arthur).

    [12] Sacramento ..... Augustin. They need a PG. BADLY since Bibby left. He, like Bibby, has range and likes to play uptempo and is a decent disher aswell. Works I would say.

    [13] Portland ........... Randolph. Dunno why really, but I don't see him falling much further then this. Maybe they will pick him for someone else who couldn't get him otherwise.

    [14] Golden State ... Arthur. A reasonably ready PF with good offensive motions and pretty mobile. Sounds like someone Nellie would like to add to his frontcourt, especially with him not as enthousiastic about Harrington. This would make Harrington (over time) more expendable.

    Regards,

    Mourning

    1. Derrick Rose, PG, Memphis
    • Simply the best player in this draft.

    2. Michael Beasley, PF, Kansas State
    • Simply the most productive in this draft.

    3. OJ Mayo, SG, USC
    • Honestly, I would draft him over Beasley. He seems more likely to be a championship player.

    4. Jerryd Bayless, PG, Arizona
    • Don't believe the hype. How does a team go from loving this guy to loving Russell Westbrook instead? I don't get it. Bayless is better.

    5. Kevin Love, PF, UCLA
    • Love's ready for this spot. So am I.

    6. Eric Gordon, SG, Indiana
    • Sorry Knicks fans.

    7. Russell Westbrook, PG, UCLA
    • I hate this thing.

    8. Joe Alexander, SF, West Virginia
    • A match made in Milwaukee.

    9. Danilo Gallinari, SF, Italy
    • First of many Larry Brown love-'em, leave-'em guys in Charlotte.

    10. DJ Augustin, PG, Texas
    • Guessing at a swoop in from Portland. Just guessing

    11. Brook Lopez, C, Stanford
    • Hey, he's big.

    12. Anthony Randolph, SF, LSU
    • The Kings suck. Just being honest.

    13. Brandon Rush, SG, Kansas
    • One of my favorite players in the draft. Since this slot is likely to be traded, I'll take Rush. I'd love the Pacers to find a way.

    14. Donte Green, SF, Syracuse
    • Slotted on talent and athleticism.


    Others I considered late but didn't care enough to try to fit them in or that I skipped altogether because I didn't like their last name or school: Kosta Koufus, C, Ohio State

    I might change/shuffle my picks the coming weeks a little too, so you are not alone in that, Jose.

    I'm just interested in seeying other peoples opinions, picks and reasonings for them .

    Alright. There is the final edit. Somewhat wishful thinking that we get Gordon at 11, but if Seattle really takes Lopez like some are saying, it changes things a bit.

    This is a lot harder than I thought it would be. The first 4 I think have pretty much fallen into place by now.

    1 Chicago ............ Derrick Rose
    I've been keeping an eye on 6 mocks & Rose is #1 on everyone of them

    2 Miami ............... Michael Beasley
    This should be pick 1A, the Heat are in a no loose position.

    3 Minnesota ......... OJ Mayo
    The closer the draft gets the better Mayo seems to be. The word is he could be just as good as Rose & Beasley.

    4 Seattle ............. Jerryd Bayless
    Up until a couple days ago I thought the Sonics could be pulling a fast one & go big here instead. I heard JB hit 30 straight 3's.... case closed.

    5 Memphis ............ Kevin Love
    The Griz need a big & Love BB IQ gets him the spot over Lopez.

    6 New York ........... Eric Gordon
    By far the toughest pick. Whoever Walsh picks it will trigger players to rise or slide.

    7 LA Clippers ......... Russell Westbrook
    Another tough call, I think Danilo Gallinari could just as easily go here.

    8 Milwaukee .......... Joe Alexander
    I had Gallinari here before but I think the Bucks have some moves planned that would make Alexander a better pick for them

    9 Charlotte ........... Brook Lopez
    I had him 3rd for the longest time. I'm surprised he would still be available here.

    10 New Jersey ....... Danilo Gallinari
    I think the Nets would rather target another 4/5 but how could they over look a player of Gallinari's skill.

    11 Indiana ............ Brandon Rush
    Augustin is still a possibility here but after Bird's pre-draft press conference I think Rush is his #1 target.

    12 Sacramento ...... Mareesse Speights
    The Kings need a 4 & since I replaced Speights with Rush at 11, might as well slip him in here.

    13 Portland ........... DJ Augustine
    The Trailblazers have DJ drop into their laps. Look for some trading after this pick.

    14 Golden State ..... Anthony Randolph
    Someone has to pick him & there are so many options here that I think they go for broke & home the guy pans out.

    You do remember you posted already don't you? (grin)
    Yeppers & this is from that first post...

    I'll have to get back to this later, not even sure I like my picks after the first 4.

    I just wanted to get something up to see how it looked.

    [1] Chicago ............Derrik Rose
    I think Beasley's character questions and measurements make Rose a no-brainer.

    [2] Miami ................Michael Beasley
    I defenitly think Miami would prefer to trade him.

    [3] Minnesota .........OJ Mayo
    Love is tempting but Jefferson / Love is to small a frontcourt and Mayo is the real deal.

    [4] Seattle ...............Russel Westbrook
    Big Surprise. I think Bayless will slip a little. All accounts have been the Westbrooks workouts have been great and his attitude, work ethic, and upside are un-questioned. Of course I'm also a huge Westbrook fan, so what do I know.

    [5] Memphis ...........Kevin Love
    After trading Gasol, Memphis needs to appease the fans. Love is a perfect fit.

    [6] New York ...........Jerryd Bayless
    Scoring guard for D'Antoni. Makes for an interesting backcourt with Crawford. Defenitley prefer Mayo. IMO would probably prefer Westbrook as well.

    [7] LA Clippers .......Eric Gordon
    Would be a perfect fit next to Livingston. Unfortunantly Livingston's recovery is very much in doubt. Also, unfortunantley, Gordon's career is screwed before it starts

    [8] Milwaukee .........Joe Alexander
    Should be a no-brainer if he's still there.

    [9] Charlotte ............Brook Lopez
    Good fit next to Okafor.

    [10] New Jersey .....Mareese Speights
    I'm high on Speights, too. Best combination of skills, athleticism, and size available.

    [11] Indiana .............DJ Augustine
    Start the fill good character storys for the local fan base! I absolutley hate this pick, but Tinsley is obviously done and DJ will look and sound good to the fan base. Not a bad player, but a backup at best. Not what I'd like from the pick.

    [12] Sacramento .....Darrell Arthur
    Randolph and Gallanari seem like poor fits.

    [13] Portland ...........Danilo Gallinari
    Will be a good addition to what's quickly becoming a very stacked team.

    [14] Golden State ...DeAndre Jordan
    He dosen't fit Nelly ball, but someones going to take a chance on him. Why not GS? Truth is I was completly stumped as to what GS would do.


    I've been high on Westbrook and Speights, so I'm probably being a little bit of a "homer" here. But there are always surprises so who knows.

    I didn't include team names because I believe there could be some trades...If I misunderstood how you're scoring this, Will, let me know, but I think the way it is makes it irrelevant what team picks at the spot. If I have to designate the Pacers pick for the tiebreaker, then let's make it the Pacers taking Brandon Rush.
