This was done a few days ago, but the TrueHoop Network is using their member blogs do a slow form Mock draft, similar to the Bite Me, BillS Mock Draft being run by mellifluous.
These types of mocks are interesting, because you get the dynamics of the different personalities. THN is a pretty cool set up, and they've got some pretty sharp guys doing this one.
Here's a snippet of my rationale for Paul George:
You can click on the team links to see the write ups for each website.Other rumbles have the Pacers targeting Avery Bradley here, who makes sense as a perimeter defender, but is a bit of a stretch at pick #10. Also, he’s more of a 2 than a 1. In fact, I told Jared that’s who I was going to draft but then went back and re-read some notes and scouting reports and changed my mind. It’s possible that they go that direction, but I think they’ll end up liking Paul George as a more versatile, more NBA-ready player. He could potentially take Rush’s job at the 2. Or, if Murphy is traded away, he could even end up playing some “stretch” 4 in the system. Overall, he looks like a very strong defender for the 3, a good defender at 4 and a passable-to-solid defender at the 2.
The Basketball Jones also did a live Mock Draft, and Tom Lewis of IndyCornrows selected Ekpe Udoh (who had been taken earlier in the THN draft.)
The film is here, and the Pacers' pick is at about the 30 minute mark.
