    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?

    Exum is supposedly athletic and can get to the rim like Harden! And Harden could guard if he wanted to, he just shows as much effort as Shawn Taggart.

    Yeah he is a tough one to compare because even the biggest nba draft fan has seen at most three games of him from the hoop summit a year ago. There's not a comparison that jumps out at me right away either, maybe a pre injury Shaun Livingston?

    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.

    Re: BLUM: Monster NBA Draft Preview

    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.
