    Something tells me it's better if Charlotte picks before us so MJ can sniff out the draft busts before our turn to pick lol.

    I just get the impression that besides Drummond, this draft is weak in 6'11-7 footers. What's the breakdown on those guys (Tyler, Myers, etc.), strengths, weakness, who's seen 'em play even?

    nbadraft.net is an awful site and i have no idea why people keep citing it.

    in other news, my man crush on anthony davis is growing even stronger
    It seems like you (or a teammate) often get the ball back after you block a shot. Is that something in particular you try to do?

    I always try to keep the ball in play, get the ball to my teammates. If I block out of bounds, it might look good to the crowd but it kind of hurts my team because (the opponent) gets another possession. If I block it and it bounces to one of my teammates, we have the ball and we did a great job on defense getting a stop. Now we have another chance to score without them scoring.

    Hopefully Terrance Ross or Quincy Miller turn into studs because this team's shot at a top-6 pick is essentially gone.

    After the piss poor season being but on display by the Hornets and Kings, I hope both teams get relocated. I dont mind us winning because its great for confidence and team chemistry, but the teams at the bottom look worse than we did last year. Yea we had a lot of blowouts during the streak, but they were competitive otherwise. I had the thought of picking 10-12, it has 2004 written all over it. We will get stuck with some white stiff.

    Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!! Losing faith in Grant day by day the longer Jamison and Sessions are on this team. What a compelte lack of long term planning. I am disgusted we are blowing our chance at building a contnder so Jamison and Sessions can lead us to 10 or 9th in the East.

    No trade will happen before the All-Star break anyway, After it though things should get crazy.

    And Quincy Miller was* the #1 prospect coming into this year before he tore his ACL.... still recovering... would not at all be a bad pick... very Durant like.... very very confident in his game...(Chicago kid...)

    Something about drafting a kid who tore his ACL in HS just doesn't sit right with me.

    I just can't see what the cavs plan would be to rebuild this team without getting a high pick this year. All this team needed to do was not be this good this year and get a higher pick to have a chance to hit on one more prospect, thats it just one more prospect. Now we will be stuck doing the same thing over again which is trading for older players or younger players that are grossly overpaid for what they bring to the court on a nightly basis. I don't know what to think right now.

    still early in the season, still haven't traded Ramon, still haven't traded or bought out Jamison, still haven't played the toughest part of the schedule, not worried one bit...just sitting back and thanking Grant for taking Kyrie and TT and finding Gee (basically another 1st round pick) for absolutely nothing.

    I disagree. You have to figure this team was not going to be picking top 4 again with the improvement through having the 1st and 4th picks. Top 4 is pretty much locked to be Barnes, Davis, Drummond, and MKG. The next few picks are expected to go to guys like Thomas Robinson, Sullinger, Perry Jones, I've seen Henson on some boards, Cody Zeller etc. Realistically the top 7 picks, IMO, should go to Davis, Drummond, MKG, Barnes, Sullinger, Robinson, and Perry Jones. That leaves guys like Brad Beal, Jeremy Lamb, Terrance Ross, Austin Rivers etc. still on board you figure when we pick. I think if we snag a pick anywhere from 8-10.. we'll be fine.. this is a deep draft.

    Right, and if the Cavs had decided to go with the full on rebuild (trade Jamison, Sessions, Andy), they'd have a shot at Davis, Drummond, Barnes, or MKG.

    Now they'll have to settle for Beal or Ross and hope they turn out to be better than advertised.
