    Disappointing at first. Then I thought about who people wanted to pick for 3rd, and realized I wasn't really feeling them. Kemba Walker is starting to sound good at 5, when he wasn't at 3. Then again... with our luck, watch him get drafted 4th. Ha!

    I like Knight, Kemba or Leonard with our pick. I'm sure the workouts will bring more clarity to our pick.

    NBA commiss David Stern just gave it to the Cavs because Raptors didnt give him the kinda bribes Jazz and Cavs did, rigged shit. anyways we should see if Enes slips if he doesnt we should go with Knight over Walker.

    Not so bad...now the Raps can take some of the players I wanted, but were projected too high to really make a move for.

    It's gotta be Bismack Biyombo! He's too legit to quit...on taking at number 5.

    what would you do if you were cleveland? I would take williams first overall and then take a chance on biyombo if he pans out they have their front court for the next 10 years
    Irving and a big (Valanciunas, Biyombo or Kanter, if he's still on the board)

    Who does not want to hear that yelled out over the PA.
    I have no idea who Chukwudiebere Maduabum is, but on his Draft Express profile, hes listed as Chu Chu. I think hes worthy of picking just for that. He immediately is in the running for best All-Time NBA name. -Tim W.

    Here's Chad Ford's updated mock draft:

    1)Cleveland- Kyrie Irving
    2) Minnesota- Derrick Williams
    3) Utah- Brandon Knight
    4) Cleveland- Enes Kanter
    5) Toronto- Valanciunas

    I honestly hope it doesn't go like that lol..

    Also reported by Chad Ford-- Minnesota is very open to moving the 2nd pick, Kahn wants veteran help.

    I hope he classifies Bargnani as veteran help lol.

    The crazy Mormons will probably take Fredette there.

    Minnesota has no need for Derrick Williams, with Beasley and Wesley Johnson in the mix. I could see them either trading their pick, or drafting Kanter.

    Great point. Utah is known for often drafting Character over Talent. They might see him as Character..?
    Or just like him because he's White and American. If he slips the Pacers, they are going to be through the roof!!

    I hate you Bleacher Report

    But this is kinda funny.

    I remember reading BC was intrigued by Jonas. It really wouldn't surprise me to be honest.

    Colangelo post lottery vid up: http://www.nba.com/raptors/video/bry...o-post-lottery

    Says 6-7 players that he likes in this draft, ones that can be impact players. Also doesn't see a "dramatic fallback" from spots 3-6.

    The Closest thing Minni has to a 'shitty contract' is Darko's $15M over 3 years.
    I'd almost rather have Bargs than Darko. Although, Darko has been known to at least TRY on defense. So who knows. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad... I mean NO! Darko sucks!! He's European!

    Here's how I think it goes:

    1 - Cleveland - Kyrie Irving
    2 - Minnesota - Enes Kanter
    3 - Utah - Derrick Williams
    4 - Cleveland - Kawhi Leonard (although I would not be surprised to see them use their TPE to move up with Utah to select Williams)
    5- Toronto - Jonas Valancuinas

    But his name is so cool, I think he can be forgiven for being European.

    I can see it now: every time he steps on the court, the arena starts to play "The Killing Moon" by Echo and the Bunnymen.

    Trading Jose for Flynn and the Number two pick sounds pretty good right now.
