    I'm really looking forward to tonight. Hope that DG gets picked.

    My prediction: #46 or 56 to the Lakers.

    I wouldn't mind if he went to the Suns, to learn from Steve Nash while he's there for the final year of his contract.

    Or my Bucks, to back up Brandon Jennings.

    Re: ***NBA Draft Thread***

    Im hoping he gets picked up by the Lakers as well. Not because I am a Lakers fan, but because I think he would get put in a situation where he could be successful in the NBA as opposed to the D-League. It never hurts to be surrounded by a good supporting cast to make a young talented PG look good.

    Go get them DG!! I was always a big DG supporter when he was here in Ames.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Regardless of where he goes, chances are he'll be asked to go develop overseas for a year. With the lockout looming he might as well go make some money.

    What time does the 2nd Round start?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    I think playing for the Lakers would be one of the worst possible situations for a rookie pg.

    Nash, Parker, Bynum, Odom, Iguodala, Josh Smith, lots of big names could be moving tonight. Lot of teams trying to get deals done before the CBA expires.

    And Mike Brown, isn't known to play a style that DG would fit into. I'd like to see him go to a team that likes to push the ball. LA will be a half court team, we've seen that DG struggle with that.

    If Phil Jackson were the coach I would agree since he never plays young guys. But otherwise, I think it'd be a great fit. They have zero good PG's on that team. Fisher is way to old. Steve Blake isn't any good anymore and is getting up there in age. It would be ideal.

    Lakers were a 1/2 court team b/c they couldn't get stops and b/c Derek Fisher is to old to get out and run. But let's not act like Mike Brown's offense will be like Greg McDermott's. It's the NBA still and there is only 24 seconds in a shot clock.

    Hope he gets drafted but NOT to the Lakers. I would like to Chicago take him second round. Would be awesome to learn from one of the best pg's in the league in D-Rose.


    CF SURVIVOR 4 WINNER!
