I like the Bobcat’s picks a lot. Anytime you can team together one of the most dominant big men (Sean May) last year in the NCAA with the point guard (Raymond Felton) that also lead you to a National Championship from the same state that your 2 year old franchise who just moved into a new arena can be done… You do it. They are going to improve quickly.
I’m okay with the Lakers picks. I don’t know much about Bynum. I just know he is young and could have lots of talent. I sure hope he does. I just didnt think they’d him with all the talent that was available at the time. However, they needed a PG or a C and there weren’t any decent point guards available. The guys I wanted Warrick, Jack, Garcia, Hodges, Green, weren’t projected as high as pick 10 plus they already have a lot of players like that. Except for Jarrent Jack who was drafted by Denver but then dealt to Portland for the rights to two later picks.
Charlie Villanueva is a thug and I can’t believe he went that high.
I was hoping Hakim Warrick wouldn’t go to a crappy team or at least one of the teams that I could semi-root for. I’m just going to hope he gets traded soon which probably won’t happen. At that point I was hoping that he would slip 1 more spot to play with Melo but oh well..
I am interested to see how well these Point Guards do. Deron Williams, Chris Paul, and Felton. How well Marvin Williams will live up to the hype? How many of these players will even make an impact at all?
Bynum is rocking cold pizza as we speak. His favorite subject in high school was Physics.
