    Until MangoKid wakes up from his mango-juice induced inebriation.

    To those wondering why there was a lapse in selections, there was a sudden passing in my family this week, so my apologies to those I offended by not being on top of this.

    With the 6th Pick in the 2012 Raptors Republic Mock Draft, the Portland Trail Blazers select.....

    BRADLEY BEAL, SG, FLORIDA



    2011-12 NCAA Statistics

    PPG: 14.6
    RPG: 6.5
    SPG: 1.4

    Positives
    •Amazing shooter
    •Deep range on his jumper
    •Clutch shooter, fearless
    •Terrific rebounder for a guard
    •High basketball IQ
    •Good athlete, NBA body
    •Good ball handler
    •Can play the point
    •Good defender



    Negatives
    •Undersized for the two guard position
    •May be a bit of a tweener


    Analysis, as per ESPN scouts

    Very few prospects can struggle the way Beal did during much of his freshman season and, with a handful of great games, bounce right back to where he initially was projected to be. When people expect you to be great, they'll also look for any signs that point in that direction.

    The last player I can remember having the same effect was Derrick Rose in 2008 (though Harrison Barnes came close toward the end of his freshman season).

    While Beal has never slipped below No. 5 on our Big Board, suddenly he was in everyone's top five.

    Are the expectations getting out of control again? I doubt it after watching Beal in a workout in Chicago on Tuesday.

    Beal looks confident again. He showed off that picture-perfect jump shot from everywhere on the floor. This time it didn't just look good leaving his hands, it was going in at a clip of about 85 percent from everywhere on the floor.

    He has an NBA body, is an excellent athlete and is working hard on improving his handle so that he can be more of a combo guard at the next level. More importantly, he said he's learned his lesson.

    If Portland does take Lillard though, there is a good chance of Beal dropping to us, because of GS needs to address their thing stringed front-court.

    IMO, this would be a nice fit. And with their 11th pick, they can pick up Kendall Marshall to also address their point guard needs. Thus allowing us to draft Lillard!
