Eyebrows? I think people would've blocked this website permanently. :-b

Im actually curious to see where Granger will be drafted. I mean he was basically a 5th round pick last year, but things in Indiana have changed dramatically since then.

My reply to that isn't scientific, but it works for me. I'll consider Granger the first time I catch myself thinking even half seriously about drafting a boring veteran of some description.

I love the Gasol pick. I was contemplating Gasol instead of Bosh with my second pick. I think he is going to have a much better year without Dwight Howard clogging up the middle. When you consider the fact that we don't really know how effective Kobe Bryant is going to be this season, I think Gasol is an even better draft pick. I really like the trio of Chris Paul, Dirk Nowitzki, and Pau Gasol. Nice work so far, Jim.

I love the Millsap pick. I'm going to enjoy getting him this late in a lot of drafts. Some people forget that when Millsap got more than 30mpg (and less dicking around) the year before last he was a top ten player. It's not so much that I actually expect him to go a lot higher than this, I just love getting a guy with top 10 pedigree at the end of the second round, especially when he's moving into a much better situation for minutes and importance to the franchise. It smells like unicorn blood to me. :-b

Meh, I'll let you have Millsap every time as long as you give me Ilyasova.

Sounds like a sig bet to me. I don't think there's a chance in hell Ilyasova outproduces Millsap on the season. :-D Not that Ilyasova will be bad, but I I think Millsap is looking at exdellent minutes and Ilyasova might not be, and Millsap is money when he gets minutes, They're both top 25 guys given minutes though, I just don't have the same faith in Ilasova's PT.

Oleh logic - every pick I just made is the best player available and the best value on the board and there's nothing you can ever say to suggest otherwise. :-B

This shizz jusy got real. Mock nothing, I care more about the sig than anything to do with an early mock draft. :-b We may need to set some ground rules though...
