    Default With the 8th pick in the draft Ed Davis selects...

    8. Kendall Marshall, G, UNC
    Selected by: Ed Davis

    "Kendall and I played on the same AAU team together," says fellow Tar Heel Davis about Marshall, who averaged 9.8 apg and had the third highest assist rate in the country last year. "He's a great leader and passes the ball well to the bigs."
    Interesting that he mentioned him passing the ball well to the bigs.

    How ironic would it be if Toronto somehow ended up with Marshall, while Davis was shipped out in a trade?

    That's true. I want every player deported, and the team re-located to Omaha, Nebraska. That way, we can finally shut down this site, and I can live in peace.

    This is my ultimate goal.

    If you guys have Insider, and check out this mock by the players, Brad Beal goes to the Magic at nineteen. NINETEEN. Are the players anti-Beal or do they just need their heads checked?

    For the most part, they were selecting players from their alma matter - like ceez pointed out, but also, in most instances, they made sure not to rock the boat on their own respective teams when making their selections - like for instance, Nolan Smith knows that they have Wes Matthews on the team, so he didn't select Beal on either pick. These kind of things are always tough on players.

    Is it okay for one of you guys to post the article? Or would that be "piracy"... not that I care.

    I'd like some of the people on here deported, including myself.

    But, for some reason I keep coming here.

    It's actually such a boring and annoying site this time of year because people get so bored that they constantly recycle topics that should be buried 8 feet under.

    Here's a question, If ED DAVIS were to re-enter the draft, where would he go?
    I'm thinking late lottery or maybe even just mid first round.....

    Ed Davis is still a high value pick considering where he was taken. He has all the tools to be a really good pro. It just takes time.
