Who will earn 1st round "value"?

Postby The Thrill » Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:42 pm

Ok, let's see if this will be any fun. O:-) Who do you think will earn 1st round value, but is not typically being drafted in the first round? You don't have to provide a reason. I'm going to throw a first guess out there without any substantive reasons. :-B Call it a gut feel and leave it at that. Or explain away if you so choose. ;-D


My choice: Marc Gasol

Brandon Jennings and Carmelo Anthony are two I'd toss out there.

Funny. Jennings was my #2 if I was going to list a 1 and 2. ;-D

Some decent possibles: Cousins, Anthony Davis and Pau Gasol

Less likely: Dragic, Paul George and Monroe

Jennings really? Where did he rank last year? Man I need to update my brain on some rankings soon :-o

Are we talking H2H? If so, I am going with Ibaka. More minutes and it looks like he added a 3 pointer.

Jesus Red. The love can go to far. :-b Davis will post first round value this year with about the same probability as me getting elected president (as a Canadian citizen).

Josh Smith seems a safer bet, with maybe Horford tossed on to the pile. Gasol and Cousins are solid bets. Jennings doesn't make the cut for me. Melo is a borderline option IMO, but I think his huge FG% drag will keep him out of the first round.

I didn't mention this earlier, but I excluded guys like Horford and Gasol as I already consider them borderline firsts. Besides, it's more fun looking deeper. You get one right and you look like a genius. :-D

The ones which come to my mind which haven't yet been mentioned are Curry, Harden and (my dark horse) Ibaka.
