    your memory needs work. Darko never averaged 2 blocks per game for Hemofarm.

    As for Thabeet...the jury is out on him, but he was nowhere near as agile or athletic as Biyombo is.
    Good to know where I need some work, but lets work on the logic first.
    1.6 then? Does your entire argument rest on 0.4? If Darko averaged another half block in Europe, he'd be a sure thing? Please.

    You want to talk about agility? Go ahead. Athleticism? Go ahead.
    You want to give me stats from 14 games and say the guy is a sure thing because he's " getting minutes at age 18"? Sorry, but that's BS.

    He's up to #8 in DraftExpress Mock Draft now.
    He's going between #7 and #9 to Detroit or Charlotte in ESPN's mock draft/lottery generator.

    Gotta agree with ballism here. I'm a big fan of Bismack (see my posts in the other thread), but he's enough of a project that I'd worry about picking him in the top 10. That said, the draft this year definitely looks like slim pickings - there's good depth, but not a lot of star quality at the top. So I can understand why Detroit might be considering him at #7, especially with athletic big men who can defend so rare.

    The surprising one to me is Kenneth Faried at #14 I thought he'd be available if we were to trade down to nab him in the late first. According to Chad though, we'd be lucky to get him at #15. Wow.

    It's been an amazing rise. If Barnes stays in school, and Valanciunas' buyout is problematic (as rumour has it), Biyombo is probably top 5. Wizards? Kings?

    Funny, on only third try now, I have the Jazz winning the 2 spot and drafting Kyrie Irving (Wizards take Derrick Williams at 1).

    Edit - oh, and Jazz still take Jimmer at 12 with their second pick.. Did they hire Khan?

    Chad Ford has the 15th Pick ( the Pacers pick ) going for John Henson.

    As I recall, he's not flashy or anything to write home about....but as a 15th Value pick....is he halfway decent?

    He'd probably be just a backup rotational Big Man...which is something that we do need.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    that'd be a good pick if Henson were actually in the draft.

    Henson is staying in school though, or isn't it final yet?

    You're right..he is...just saw the tweet on DX.

    Whose next on the list of decent Players at 15?

    One of the Morris brothers? Faried? Jimmer?

    I'd keep an eye on Valanciunas. His buyout situation is reportedly horrible, and he's probably staying in Europe for a few more years. No surprise - his Euro team ownership is notoriously unprofessional and cheap. He's been in top 5 on draftexpress board for two years now, but on Ford's board, he's slipping these days.
    If it becomes a risk like Fran Vasquez for Orlando in '05, I wouldn't be surprised if Valanciunas drops to the 'teens. Not everyone likes him, but he's 18 and his improvements year to year have been amazing.

    Btw, Motiejunas would be available, according to Ford's board. He's been ~ no.8 for years.
    Don't love him personally, but wouldn't be surprised if we draft him - good value in this crap draft at 15.
    Kind of similar to Bargnani when he was drafted. With all positives and negatives. Good shooting, mobile, 7 feet, etc, but inconsistent motor on D, thin, bad rebounder. Even plays Bargnani's role on Bargnani's old Euro team.
    Main difference - Bargnani has a longer wingspan.

    I like Jordan Williams but he's projected all over the place.

    A bit smallish and unathletic for my tastes.

    Motiejunas reminds me of Rasheed Wallace for some reason. He comes off as lazy, but I think he simply gets sidetracked by his own talent. He does so many things well, he loses focus.

    I wouldn't mind that pick at all. Certainly we could do worse than a 6'10 260 big boy. I think he could get picked before us though.

    Harrison Barnes is back to school as well. This draft is getting uglier every week.

    Careful....his school has rules about that sort of thing unless you plan on making him an honest man.

    And just like that, Bismack has flown up the charts and is ranked #6 on Draftexpress.
