    A few points about this recent cbs mock draft.

    1. Jabari is #1 here. Wiggins CAN slip. Plenty of talent available at multiple positions (particularly forwards).

    2. This draft projects that 10 of the lottery picks will belong to Eastern Conference teams. The raps pick 13th. 4 of the top 5 picks belong to Eastern Conference teams. Everyone around us wound be so much better next year and possibly for a long time after that.

    Obviously this is just a mock draft and there is tons of nba/ncaa left to be played and tons of stuff is gonna happen in that time. This is just one possible scenario. In my opinion, it is not a good one for the raps.

    End note: Masai would rather drive to Syracuse to watch Indiana than go to California to watch his team (that he is so diligently "evaluating") play. He just had a baby so maybe he wants to stay close (and any number of other reasons) OR it could be that he drives a HOVER - TANK around the globe searching for a player that can plug the Rudy Gay sink-hole . That night he was checking out Vonleh and Grant (Ennis too). PFs that could go mid/late-lottery.
    Two things:

    1) I'm glad he is watching NCAA instead. He has said this team will be built through the draft and that is how it should be built.

    2) Those PF's are mid/late lottery... right now. A lot can and will change between now and draft. Examples already seen are Andrew Harrison, Wayne Selden, and GLenn Robinson III.

    Q: Joey Green:

    Although we've been losing, the fact that the games are close is very encouraging. I feel like we're missing a defensive 7' big man.
    A: Pete D’Alessandro:

    League rules preclude me from talking about players in the Draft. What I can say is we're in the early stages of rebuilding this team and some of your points about our needs are well taken and being evaluated.

    If Embiid continues his strong play and Sacramento continues their hunt for a top lottery pick, lets hope they get top 3 because it sounds as if Embiid might be a top 3 pick possibly pushing Wiggins, Smart, Exum, Randle, or Parker further down the line.

    1) As do I

    2) I'm not saying they will draft vonleh or grant. I'm speculating that they might be looking to draft a pf with their 1st pick

    Kentucky lost to Baylor last night. Baylor outhustled the Wildcats but I must say Randle was terrific. Interesting that Baylor has two Canadians playing big minutes, Heslip was limited to a few free throws while pg Kenny Chery from Montreal had 18 points and 5 assists.

    Ucla on way to loss.

    Not impressed with Adams in this game.

    In love with LaVine. He just needs to get a bit bigger.

    I liked the austin dunk on cauley-stein. he gets up quick. decent iq. never gonna fill out tho. stein's blocking is impressive so says something about the dunk.


    matt52 - lavine vs exum - who do you pick for the raps right now? I'd take Exum right now.

    Exum looks great.

    Exum.

    why is the KU game not on now? i thought tsn/tsn2 was showing every game this season, at least that's what they were advertising before the season started. they sure gave up on that quickly. instead we got curling and a doc on women's soccer.

    i hate the sports networks in this country

    at least in 1982 the whole damn world didn't have the internet so maybe a little more defensible.

    what the hell is even the point of showing a game 7 hours after it ended in this day and age?

    Rex Chapman: Joel Embid of KU will be the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA-draft whenever he decides to leave school. No-brainer.

    Oh how I pray raps don't pick #1.

    When all said and done wiggins will not be #1. Hate to see him picked because of his passport
