    Default DOUG SMITH on the draft. says raps take KEMBA @ 5

    this is from the Golden State website. Dough smith thinks if the draft goes:
    1 irving
    2 williams
    3 knight
    4 kanter
    5 the raps will most likely select Kemba.

    Also says the raps like kanter ALOT.

    I would be not unhappy with either...though I lean towards Kemba primarily on his leadership (so important for the pg position) and general intangibles. I also have seen a report that Kanter has not impressed on the defensive end...though how one truly assesses that in a workout I wouldnt know. I wouldnt want Kanter if he is not committed to defense. I presume BC would be up on this if he were to fall to the Raps.

    The list above is becoming more of a reality at this point. I cannot for the life of me see Kanter fall below 4. I simply cannot see it. As for the comments on D, I read that somewhere as well but he's a kid that hasn't seen real competition in almost two years. His conditioning, tenacity and size is what makes me drool. He looks like a tough SOB!!!

    I will be shocked if there isn't a trade in the top four. And the Raptors won't take Kemba, it's Knight all the way for them.

    All it takes is one team to do something unexpected. If Golden State hadn't picked Udoh 6th, then Ed Davis probably doesn't fall to 13. Hell, Golden State should have picked Davis at 6th! Look at it this way. Kahn picks #2, and no one ever knows what the hell he is going to do. Utah picks third, and they selected Gordon Hayward last year when Davis, and Paul George were available. And I still have no idea who the guy is who's running the Cavs.

    Plus, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if one or more of the top five picks were traded. Maybe even to the Raptors!

    I am in the camp of 'hope so'.

    Last night I was thinking about the draft and started wondering...

    What if neither Toronto or Cleveland has enough to pry the #2 pick from
