    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's Kentucky plans are real puzzler

    Not sure if anyone posted this yet, but this would be another strike against this "deep" draft. Obviously we have seen guys turn around on these promises especially with a guy like MKG who would be passing up a high draft slot most likely.

    i've heard concerns about beal's height, he certainly looks like he'll measure at about 6'5'' in shoes, he's definitely taller than eric gordon who he is often compared to. This line-up would be fun next year: Irving-Beal-Gee-Thompson-Varajeo.

    If we trade Sessions for a 2nd 1st rounder, Beal and Jeffery Taylor is what I want...always gotta support a fellow Swede

    John Jenkins looking unbelievable right now. 17 points and 5-5 beyond the arc. 13 minutes left in the second half.

    From what I've seen John Jenkins is probably the best pure shooter at the college level. Reminds me a bit of JJ Redick.

    Kenny Boynton really doesn't have any interest in playing defense does he?

    Is either team even trying to take a shot inside the 3 pt line right now?

    Boynton and Walker are very frustrating. Seems like they never make that one extra pass for a wide open shot.

    Oh man if MKG and AD stay in school this draft will absolutely suck. Davis, Barnes, Lamb, could be the top three. Beal could go in the top 5. FML

    Yeah that's why I give Beal a little bit of a pass for this season. He has all the skills you want to see in a SG but how exasperating to play with Boynton and Walker. Beal is my favorite prospect if the Cavs do end up with a pick in the 6-10 range.

    This draft is looking more and more like last year's draft. At this point Davis appears to be the only potential franchise player available esp if MKG stays at Kentucky. After him alot of solid rotation players. The three Vandy players look to be late first rounders who could be candidates for the Cavs if they acquire another pick in the 20's. All three would be rotation players for this Cavs team.

    I have no idea why Beal went to Florida. Their guard play does him no favors. He's forced to do all the dirty work defensively and he has to play PF sometimes. I saw 3 straight possesions where he was parked in the short corner while Boynton, Walker and Rosario passed it around the perimeter looking for 3's.

    Good for us though that Beal isn't upping his stock and will be there for our pick because I think he has the exact skill set we want out of our SG.

    Of the 8 teams who were lower in the loss column than who played tonight. Only 2 of them won. The jury is still out on Sac.

    Side note: NJN and DET are both exactly 4 GB of us, and have played 4 more games than us. Not sure whose favor those 4 games will benefit.

    If we can avoid more then 1 guy in the top 5 staying in school our chances of Beal at 8 or 7 are looking better and better, When I think of Beal, Thompson and Irving growing together I get extreemly excited!

    Erving Walker doesn't even look to pass to Beal....I know an Irving that would love to pass to him

    Well, there is absolutely no way that NJN and DET having played and lost 4 extra games is going to help the Cavs draft position. :-)

    But it may not end up hurting the Cavs too much either. We'll see how the Cavs perform in their upcoming challenging games.

    On the bright side, draft-wise, I think tonight marks the first time that the Cavs are, mathematically speaking, in the 8th slot of the draft in many, many weeks. A couple teams are percentage points ahead of them, but I can't remember the last time the Cavs had sunk even this far. 8th spot feels a little lucky after last year.

    It's a long way down to the 5th, 6th, or 7th spot, depending on just how well Brook Lopez continues to play.
