NBA 1st Round Mock Version 1.0

Tuesday, June 27, 2006

Okay....here it is....approximately 6 hours of work (including the 2nd round which I will post later). As crappy as this draft is it was by far the most fun to Mock Draft. Players like Alexander Johnson could go anywhere from 20th to not drafted at all. I think this is a testament to the new "Age" rule being in play in the NBA. This is the "swing year" before the real players with upside, the highschoolers, are back in play. I have a sense, and you can see it in the picks, that most teams will favor seniors because next year will be stacked with young players with upside. Check out the list....tear it apart....it will most likely be changed 20 times before the 7pm start at MSG. (More comments and analysis throughout the day)

It takes guts to put up a mock draft this year. This class is so unpredictable, anyone could go anywhere and you could easily look like a fool! I am curious if Orlando doesn't draft Reddick if he is taken 14 by Utah or falls more and is the last guy left in the green room.

I think you hit the nail on the head with that one. I don't think Utah will take him because of the back and legal troubles.....Orlando needs a shooter pretty bad.....but if he doesn't go there he's in the 20s. And I'll love every minute of it.
