  What a ridiculous question this is..It's impossible to analyze players that have not yet played an NBA game..Can we even be sure Anthony Davis is a sure thing? Nope..because there is no such thing..

I like what the Orlando Magic did. My first round loser is the Indiana Pacers.

I also think Kendall Marshall is a solid pickup...with Nash more than likely not coming back.

I think Hornets did very well.

Houston had a ton of picks in the 1st round so they bound to have a great draft.

Don't forget Boston too.  With their late pick, I think they did really well getting Fab Melo!  

GS filled in their missing piece by draft big guys.  Not bad.

I was just sick to my stomach watching NYKnicks pick........  they did the worst...........

Winners: Not any order:

Knicks - Was checking some mock drafts and this guy was either in or close to the first round. He was playing some awesome ball towards the end of the Euroleague playoffs.

Warriors - Draymond Green...thought he would have been a first round pick. He loves the game and will only get better. 

Kings - Thomas Robinson next to Cousins...should be able to score the ball in the paint.

Portland - Damian Lillard - fills the point guard need on the team. 

Pistons - I saw many mock drafts having them taking John Henson. I think Drummound slipping down will benefit the Pistons if he puts his mind to it.

Rockets - Jeremy Lamb...great pick up here. They can keep or trade Kevin Martin now.

Memphis - Tony Wroten great back up for Conley. Memphis was the fourth lowest scoring team in terms of guards. 

Bulls - Nice selection to backup Rose.

Losers:

Pacers - Is Hibbert on his way out? 

Bucks - How many forwards is this going to have?

Nets - Ilkan Karaman (not sure who he is)

BrooklynNets and NYKnicks both had the worst draft.  Both players would be available in round 5-6.  Why waste the round to draft them?

Lots of problems with the NYKnicks draft:
1. Another forward?  Our lineup is nothing but forwards.  We need SG/PG help!
2. This guy won't be coming till 2-3 years later (If he does come). Watch, he'll be like Francis Weis all over again.  He will decline coming over and NYKnicks will lose him.
3. He can't shoot!  What?  Hard worker?  We can find hard worker in the late rounds of the draft!

Cavs, Hornets, and Houston made some big moves!  Now let's see if those kids can play together. 

Why did Bulls get another PG?  I thought Watson and Lucas 3 was good enuff?  They need a real PF that can be physical in the paint.  Boozer is like a wimp. 

Heat just gets stronger and stronger with another C.

I'm with Train. I like what the Warriors got. But I'm a Warrior fan

I hate the Celtics, but if Buckeye stays healthy, and Melo gets a clue, could really help that franchise...........

Like Houston's draft.  I think Lamb has a chance to be pretty good Royce White high risk and reward, but worth a shot.  You know exactly what you are getting in T. Jones.
