    Re: BLUM: Monster NBA Draft Preview

    If the NBA comparisons given in the article come to fruition this will be among the best drafts of all time (~9 all stars is a lot)


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    Those comparisons are ideas of what their games could look like. Not necessarily guaranteeing All-Star-dom. But this Draft is very good. Thanks for reading!

    I hope the Bulls trade up and get Dougie or Stauskus(spelling?)

    Re: BLUM: Monster NBA Draft Preview

    Hard to believe they're still going to take Embiid, especially in the first round...that's not what I've been reading.

    At any rate, I really hope yon Blum has to eat his words regarding Kane & Ejim.

    Can we count on a full-page apology if this is the case, and/or he has to send everyone on CF a coupon for a free Natty Lite?

    Good write up. I don't see Jabari becoming Carmelo so I hope the Cavs take Wiggins. Wiggins has a good shot that will get better, and he is extremely athletic.

    No way Vonleah or Smart go in the top 6.

    Done. But the Busch Light is on CW.

    I don't think I've seen a single mock draft that has Vonleh going outside the top six.

    Vonleh is a virtual lock for the top 6. I wouldn't be surprised to see Orlando take him at 4.

    Re: BLUM: Monster NBA Draft Preview

    I'll be very surprised if Aaron Gordon falls to 10. Bet he gets picked before Stauskas and McDermott, and possibly Smart. Don't think he should be, but bet he will.

    Some of the NBA comparisons are a bit... surprising. Don't see Batum and McDermott, or Tim Duncan and Embiid. Maybe more like Camby. Is Camby still in the league?

    Liked the piece, though.

    Call me Jon Snow because I know nothing about the NBA, but I laughed several times throughout that.

    Yeah the Exum Harden comparison is questionable too as Exum is being touted as a guy who might struggle shooting but can come in and defend right away but it's hard to come up with a good comparison for all 30 guys.
