    Default If JV was in the 2012 draft....

    Given the year he's had overseas....where would he sit? Somewhere 2-5? I hear calls about this years draft as if people forget that we are getting a delayed 2011 draft pick to go with the 2012 one. I was wondering where JV would be in mock drafts if he was a 2012 pick. Is he above, below or on par with the pick we hope, or expect to pick up when the season is done? Are we in effect getting a top 4 pick in JV, plus a top 7 or so pick for this seasons efforts or how do you guys see it?

    Haven't watched enough NCAA to make a real call, but after watching the final four, I would say he would be in the top five.

    If the GM's of 2011 could redo the draft of 2011 all over again JV would have been chosen 2nd overall and not 5th.

    For 2012 I would put JV as 5th overall pick which is quite respectable for this year draft.

    JV would have went 2nd last year if it wasn't for his buyout situation.

    I'd say he'd go 2 or 3 this year.

    The scouts are unanimous in saying he'd be a lock at number 2 if he was in this year's draft. I mean he's already been declared the best pro player outside of the NBA.

    Given the things he has accomplished since last year's draft:

    a re-do of '11 puts him at #2;

    and entry in to this draft puts him at #2.

    I say #2, he is still 19 and brings a fairly developed game for a young big, plus he knows how to be a pro.

    In this year's draft? I think he would go after Anthony Davis ... after that, it's a toss-up.

    He's in a class above the Drummond, Barnes, Sullinger tier.

    In the mix with MKG, Robinson & Beal ... likely ahead of all of them, based on team need.

    As for the 2011 draft? Who now would dream of taking Kanter ahead of him? Tristan Thomspon? Even Derrick Williams? ... #2 pick for sure last year ... lucky us!

    Love the quote from Colangelo, talking about adding a piece in this stacked draft ... saying, we already have the 2nd best player in the draft ohhh yeah. Might as well get the best, and 2nd best ... Twin towers, like never before.

    Kanter isn't so bad, Utah just have too many bigs and he doesn't have enough time on court

    You know what they say, you're only as good as your last game. And with that said, Davis having a pretty bad offensive performance during the NCAA championship plus JV's numerous accolades in the past year, I wont be surprised if JV went #1 this year. Most likely he'll go #2 just because he plays in Europe but Davis will definitely not be a consensus #1 if JV was in this year's draft.

    Meh, whether he's considered the best prospect, or the 2nd best prospect can never be settled (since David Stern isn't re-doing the draft). Let's just be thankful Cleveland made a dumb move in picking Thompson.

    Who are the top 3 pro players outside of the NBA? Is Marbury one of them?
