    Brackins now a second round pick?

    NBAdraft.net now has Brackins the 37th pick of the draft. It has Gilstrap 47th.

    They will be both making money next year. I wish the best of luck to both of them. Craig will hit the NBA at some point. Gilstrap could make a LOT of money in Europe if he never gets it here

    Re: Brackins now a second round pick?

    NBAdraft.net has had him in the 2nd round for a while now. It's bad because they were always the source that had him going the highest. At one point last year they had him at 8 or 9. Sucks for him.

    For Gilstrap, I'd say 47th is looking pretty good to him considering his situation.

    Last year at this time Brackins was pretty much a lock to go in the top 20. I feel sorry for him because coming back for another year probably end up costing him a few million dollars.

    I know. But I dont think he got worse. He should be able to prove that in workouts.

    The KU game last year might have overly inflated his status

    You're right, he didn't get worse. He was probably just a little overrated, likely because of the KU game like you mentioned.

    the nba draft predictions are the most wild of any mock draft, they aren't really ever right.

    His stats may have been down 10 per cent but that was mostly because he had help from Gilstrap. If both are drafted, that will reflect once again how this season was a biog miss. Remember CB did better this year in assists and steals and blocks. He had no help in 08-09 thanks to Wesley disappearing.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    CB didn't get worse, his stats were down with the help of other players...Quez and Lucca for awhile. He was projected so high last year because last years draft was so much weaker than this years. There are so many great players in this years draft.

    Re: Brackins now a second round pick?

    Brackins was predicted to go high last year because the draft was "weak" and he was extremely overrated because of 1 game. From what I have seen of Brackins, he is a second round pick at best, only because of his potential. His talent IMO, is just barely tapped because of bad coaching that didn't know how to use him correctly.

    maybe he didn't get worse because talent doesn't really go bad, but he did not perform nearly as well as he did his sophomore year. his per40 stats are way down, not 10% more like 25% and his 2P fg% shooting was also way down 51% vs 45%.

    worse yet, he got exposed this year. a list of his flaws:

    1) not a shot blocking presence
    2) not quick enough to guard many perimeter forwards
    3) when out-strengthed, relies on off balance fadeaways too often
    4) a serviceable rebounder but definitely not great

    and worse yet, this is against college competition (Jordan Egleseder, and both Koch brothers of UNI made him look bad not to mention almost every big XII team).

    flaw 3 i do not get. he was really dominant his soph year and was very clever at manufacturing quality short-midrange jumpers. he looked in balance, his release looked good, and it was virtually unstoppable. also, he had such good variety in his post ups. his post up game pretty much disappeared this year. junior year i guess he was trying too hard. the other part about flaw 3 i do not get is why when he faces up he shoots fadeaways. he's 6'10"; against most opponents he should just be able to get it off without being unnecessarily off-balance.

    There it is...blame the coaching staff for his abilities. Maybe you should be a coach.
