Boyton is infuriating
The Kentucky-Florida game was arguably the best game I have seen this year - NBA or NCAA. The first 30 of 40 minutes were insane.
Brad Beal soared up my personal Big Board today.
The NCAA tournament field has not even been announced yet, but rumors of NBA draft early-entrants have already started.
On Sunday, several reports surfaced that St. John's freshman Moe Harkless had decided to forgo his eligibility and enter the NBA draft. Per a source, it's not official yet.
CBSSports.com was provided with a statement from Steve Lavin on the rumors:
“Moe and I have had a number of productive conversations over the past four days. Naturally the discussions covered the pros and cons of leaving St. John's to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA. Moe and his mother Rosa know, regardless of what his ultimate decision is, we enthusiastically support them. They understood that either outcome will clearly help the Johnnies' cause as we continue to build our basketball program.”
Harkless finished No. 5 in CBSSports.com's Freshman of the Year rankings this season. The 6-foot-8 small forward averaged 15.3 points and 8.6 rebounds this season for St. John's. He is projected to go in the middle of the first round of June's NBA draft.
Jim Boeheim with words of caution though:
But Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said Harkless should reconsider leaving this year.
“He needs to stay in school and get better,’’ Boeheim told The Post’s Steve Serby. “The [NBA] developmental league is littered with guys 6-7 or 6-8. You’ve got to really be good. He’s a really talented player, but he needs another year.’’

Wow, we dropped two winnable games. They have some below .500 teams coming up, if they don't win some of these games I think we have a good chance of placing 4th last.
Bottom for are..
I don't see Washington taking a small forward cause of Vesely, same with New Orleans cause of Ariza. Charlotte grabs the BPA, and New Orleans can deal Kaman and Okafor and make room/cap space for Davis/Drummond. Washington is lacking a power-forward as well.
Whatever way, we end up with a very good player, but less preferably Drummond, just because I want a small-forward, and than I don't need to say anything about Anthony Davis.
Plus I liked Terrence Jones for Kentucky when Davis and MKG got into foul trouble against damn Vanderbilt. Damn Vanderbilt........
But, I think Terrence Jones can be a solid NBA talent. Shoot, rebound, slash, defend, long player, explosive, I like him.
Kentucky has some really bad spacing, this is the only time I've ever watched my Wildcats for more than 5 minutes this season.
Barnes had a nice game for UNC, with 23 and 7. 3 turnovers though, if in the NBA we expect him to be a guy with the ball in his hands a lot, he's gotta be efficient, especially with no assists in the game.
Marshall with 15 and 9, I'm growing on him.
Tyler Zeller was VERY nice. 19 and 12, really aggressive, and didn't stop attacking.
I also wanna talk about Saturday's game with Duke and Florida State. Austin Rivers has an NBA ready game, really wanna see him declare, can score with the best of them, great range, awesome handling ability, his left hand has improved, I like him, good confidence too.
Still pissed about that Kentucky loss though....

Does Vesely even play? i haven't seen any wizard games but i haven't heard a thing about him. i remember bill simmons' friend house going nuts on twitter saying he wish singleton (remember him?) got more minutes but nothing about veseley.
i think wiz are gonna take a big anyways. don't be surprised if mcgee gets moved.
I agree, if we are drafting fourth I think we have a good chance of getting MKG or Barnes. I would prefer Barnes, he seems to be better offensive threat and can play defence. He had a good game against Florida State, I've seen him play better though.
1. Davis- CHA
2. Drummond or Robinson - NOH
3. Robinson or Drummond - WAS
4. Barnes - TO
Davis is a no brainer at #1.
I think Drummond or Okafor could play PF or C, that could make a strong front line. Plus another draft pick from 10-15 (possibly Lillard?) I think they could make a huge turn around. They may also choose to pick a SF seeing as though they could pick a PF later. Although Terrence Jones will likely be the only guy left around that spot, unless Henson drops. I vote that they go for a PF with their earlier pick.
Washington really could use a PF I could easily see them picking either Drummond or Robinson.
That leaves us with a SF... I hope Barnes, but i guess we'll see more as the season ends and the individual workouts begin.
I would personally stay away from Barnes. He's a shooter and nothing else in my books. He's the next JJ Reddick, or worse, Trajan Langdon.
I want Colagelo to grab a multi-faceted player with our lotto pick.

Anyone passing over MKG will regret it baaad. His intangibles (take charge, leadership, crunchtime play) are great but he is constrained somewhat by the strict college coaching style and system. There was once a Michael Jordan who was constrained the same way at NC and was passed over early. I agree that his perimeter shooting needs improvement but he is a freshman.
