Detroit drafted Jason Maxiell out of Cincy. Im happy with the pick I guess, but I really wanted to get Salim Stoudemire.

The two most surprising picks I seen was, Gerald Green and Hakim Warrick. They fell down the draft board pretty far, a lot of people had them in there top ten.

So far, Channing Frye #8 (Arizona) and David Lee #30 (Florida). I like both picks but we picked another foward in Lee.

We also have another pick at 54.

Indiana got Danny Granger. I consider him to be a major steal at #17.

Lakers drafted Andrew Bynum at #10. I guess it's a gamble but it may pay off in the future. He's the youngest to ever be drafted.

umm the Spurs drafted a guy from France who didn't even have a bio link that I could click on. Everyone else drafted in the 1st round had a link lol. I guess we got ourselves a sleeper!

I hope.

Just got Dijon Thompson at #54. Don't know much about him, if anyone else could fill me on on his pros and cons it would be appreciated.

I went to UCLA & live in LA. I love Dijon Thompson. He played PF at UCLA, even though he is more like a SG or SF. He has handles, can board, and really worked on his outside shot. His best asset is that he is a 'go to' guy down the stretch and has a winner's mentality. Definite steal @ #54. ESPN picked him as a sleeper yesterday.

UPDATE: It looks like Dijon just got traded to the Suns.

I dunno about this. I heard some people compare Bynum to Shaq. But then I heard other people compare him to Desagna Diop (ie. big fat scrub).

Pistons also got Amir Johnson (Westchester HS) and Alex Acker (Pepperdine). Heard of Alex but never even heard of Amir.

Thanks for the input but yah he was traded:

Suns Get:

Draft Rights to Dijon Thompson
Kurt Thomas

Knicks Get:

Draft Rights to Nate Robinson
Quentin Richardson

I like this deal, Nate can come off the bench to play some deal for Marbury.

The Timberwolves took Rashad McCants with the 14th pick. I love this pick with sprewell out McCants comes in with hes great O skills next to Kevin Garnett they will be great.People question his D skills but as long as he brings the O like hes know for thats all the T-Wolves need to become a much better team.

They also took Bracey Wright with the 47th pick. I also like him alot. I think he will be great comming off the bench. He is great inside and has good ball skills to weave through Defenders and get to the rim and score. He has good ability to score, But I think his biggest help to the team will be his D. He has long arms and great speed which help him be a great Defender.

I agree i think the Knicks got a great deal. Bringing in Q.Richardson Is huge plus i really like Nate even though his small hes a tough guy and a fighter.

I will let you know right now - Bracey Wright won't contribute much of anything. I followed him at Indiana in college.

Bogut baby! Go Bucks!!

Deadshot, I saw alot of Bracey being a badger fan and I saw a glimpse of kobe many times in him. However it seems he lacks the killer instinct and drive most of the time.

I agree the Knicks got a great deal. Nate Robinson is an athlete, he was fun to watch at Washington.

Yeah, of course he can shoot. He was awesome in his rookie year, but hasn't been just oustanding since then (yes, he did lead the Big 10 in scoring, but this was a watered-down version with little scoring threats). Injuries plagued his college career, and he should have waited one more year to enter the draft. I honestly don't think he will materialize as much of an NBA player.

i can tell you exactly what bracey brings... no desire to win... not as good of an athlete as it appears... and whoever said defense.. HA.. he never played any at IU... he went 0-47 at one point for three pointers on the road... and he decides to go early entry... thank god... let some real talent play at indiana
