Draft Day Special Coverage 6

New, comment

1 - Greg Oden - Portland - duh
2 - Kevin Durant - Seattle - ditto
3 - Al Horford - Atlanta - maybe the Hawks should trade a forward
4 - Mike Conley Jr - Memphis - so many needs, this is one of them
5 - Jeff Green - Boston (traded to Seattle with Wally Szczerbiak and Delonte West for Ray Allen) - I don't get this trade
6 - Yi Jianlin - Milwaukee - Try to get good Szechuan in Wisconsin.  Maybe he'll develop a taste for bratwurst.
7 - Corey Brewer - Minnesota - it's going to be a long season in Minny after KG goes.
8 - Brandan Wright - Charlotte - Another UNC guy.  What a shocker.
9 - Joakim Noah - Chicago - I hate to say it, but I agree with Stephen A.  Yet another high energy guy who can't actually score on the Bulls.  How many of those can you have?
10 - Spencer Hawes - Sacramento - A big white center with passing skills.  Brad Miller worked for them, so why not?
11 - Acie Law IV - Atlanta - The Hawks finally pick a point guard.  And take the Clippers choice.
12 - Thaddeus Young - Philadelphia - Yet another athletic small forward in this draft.  Of course, they already have Iggy and Korver at small forward.
13 - Julian Wright - New Orleans - Andy Katz: "He can do everything but shoot."  Hmmm.  That is how you score points still, right?
14 - Al Thornton - LA Clippers - Go 'Noles!  Sam Cassell gets an FSU teammate!  Major athlete and a great shooter.  I like this pick.
15 - Rodney Stuckey - Detroit - Far and away the most articulate so far in his Stu Scott interview, which is ironic since he ended up at EWU because he didn't qualify.    
16 - Nick Young - Washington - They like the scoring in DC, and not so much the defense, so Nick should fit right in.
17 - Sean Williams - New Jersey - Don't bogart that joint my friend.
18 - Marco Belinelli - Golden State - David Stern said Belly Nelly, which is really funny, especially since he'll be playing for a Nelly with a big Belly.  I like this guy.
