    simply ranking the players, not a mock draft. my rankings also do not look like the run of the mill rankings you see, there's a reason for that but it'd take me a full page to explain. this is without the BIASES of the mock draft sites...


    1. Brandon Ingram

    2. Dragan Bender- I have an ass load of FULL games of Bender if anyone wants. most people haven't seen him because he's in Israel and doesn't get many minutes. Don't be fooled by him not playing much, it's politics not his ability.

    3. Buddy Heild

    4. Marquese Chriss

    5. Henry Ellenson

    6. Kris Dunn

    7. Jamal Murray

    8. Denzel Valentine

    9. Ben Simmons- might come as a surprise. his game has too many obvious holes and it's gonna be really hard to build a lineup around him. i think people are gonna Immediately realize that he's not who everyone wants him to be

    10. DeJuonte Murray

    11. Wade Baldwin

    12. Timothe Luwawu

    13. Deyonte Davis

    14. Demitrius Jackson

    15. Jakob Poeltl

    that's all for now. i ran out of steam

    Lakers are picking #2, they suck and will go with Simmons



    Unless of course Kobe decides to come out of retirement. Then they will forfeit the #2 pick after signing him to a 7 year max deal.

    not at all. Bobby Portis just last year went 22. you can get a solid player. Denzel Valentine might be there at 14, he'd fit nicely in Chicago, is NBA ready and can shoot. all things Bulls need, not a great defender though, it'd also probably mean Butler moves to the 3 which i'm not crazy about but they've been talking about it since the season ended

    Their own words convict them, "We measure success by championships."

    They're doing a crappy job.

    Glad someone is saying that about Simmons, that dude is wayyyy overrated. And the fact that he's already saying he wants to go to the Lakers so he can maximize his marketing contracts shows me what he's really all about..

    him trying to dictate which team he goes to is fucking bullshit

    kid is more worried about a shoe deal and his "brand" than he is about improving his jump shot and defense

    he's not gonna make it.

    Exactly. When Aldridge was being courted, he said the Lakers never mentioned the team or basketball. Their entire pitch was the marketing opportunities available in LA and the LA lifestyle.

    I'm hearing this is a historically weak draft

    every year it's always the "best" or the "worst" of all time.

    this draft is INFINITELY better than a couple recent drafts, such as 2013

    One of Dragan's biggest weaknesses is his ability to score.
    * inconsistent scoring / struggles when contested / no pull up game
    * lacks strength and explosiveness
    * doesn't have the skill set/mentality to be a go-to guy

    Why would a team waste the #2 pick on a guy with those weaknesses?

    man, some of these scouting reports on the internet are really funny how it's worded. to think they get paid for that shit is astounding

    The kid put Simmons at 9. You can't really give a shit about what he thinks....

    i'll just go line by line.

    "inconsistent scoring/struggles when contested/no pull up game" first of all, what 18 year old doesn't struggle when contested? also, what 7'1 human being has a pull up game? shitty scouting.

    "lacks strength and explosiveness" strength in the post is my biggest personal issue with Bender but again, he's 18. i'm not sure what this guy meant by explosiveness but Bender often beats guards up floor and is very quick for a 7'1 kid. i think this scout meant he isn't Vertically explosive and in that case he is kinda right.

    "doesn't have the skill/mentality to be a go-to guy" this one made me laugh. at 18 years old what person Ever had the skill to be a go-to guy? and mentality? is this guy trolling? he's seen youtube clips of Bender and all of a sudden he can read his mind? this type of non-analysis always pops up when people don't know the prospect they're trying to write about.

    can you link me to who said this stuff?



    you'll see ;)
