    Know next to nothing about Exum. But everyone seems so high on him. Almost like Darko; I think he was a mystery as well that looked really good in workouts. IIRC, everyone had Darko mocked real high that year.

    There have been some rumblings that Miami may take Kane at 26 if Napier is off the board. I would be surprised if it happened, but I may have to start rooting for the Heat if it did

    Great point. The guy had one good week of competition and everyone is going nutty. I'd be nervous as heck if I picked him.

    Didn't realize UCLA had that much talent last year.

    Exum is a career maker or killer for a GM this year. There is so little video evidence of him playing, let alone his existence on this earth, that you cannot make a good call on him.

    I would take Smart over him just because I know what I am getting.

    Aldridge is eight years into his career, Vonleh played a year at Indiana and wasn't really a part of the offense. But he did have a decent percentage taking jumpers and COULD eventually have a nice midrange game. Thus the comparison. I know it's not perfect, but trying to have a little fun. Thanks for reading.

    Blum, the green Patrick Ewing guy first in the NBA MonStar draft. I assume this is what the article was about.

    I like the Randolph/Randle comparisons and Gordon/Marion. Gordon's form on his jump shot isn't quite as comical as Marion's, though.

    I would love to see gordon develop his 3 point shot form the way Marion does :twitcy::twitcy::twitcy:

    Marble ahead of kane and ejim. Classic case of b10 favoritism

    Danny signed his walking papers in Boston, no way Smart will be good in the NBA.

    Jalen Rose did mention Ejim and Kane as guys he thought should of been drafted. IMO both should of been selected ahead of Marble. Congrats to him but I just don't see what skills will make him a specialist to make a roster.

    You really think that? He is the best PG in the draft. He can pass, defend, he has a lot of talent and can improve his shot. He's also a winner and a competitor.
