The Warriors cannot seriously be considering that trade with Phoenix.

Biedrins, Wright, Belinelli and the 7th pick for Stoudamire? Shoot me if that happens.

I find it amusing when mock drafts have a guy's ceiling as some scrub like Stromile Swift, and they're a projected lottery pick.

A Phoenix poster on the spurstalk board swears the deal between the Warriors and Suns is a done deal. I'm still waiting for a link but he's just a little too happy for it not to be true. We'll see.

That's a lot to give up for Astare

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 06:41 PM
That has to be a bittersweet moment for Blake Griffin. On one hand, you are the #1 pick in the draft. On the other hand, you are up there holding a Clippers jersey.

Its honestly not that big of a deal. An older Nash, Richardson and LaFrentz-- I mean Biedrins doesnt scare me at all. 7th pick could be very interesting though.

I'm not talking about the Suns side. They rape GS if this deal goes through.

I'm pissed that GS is giving up way too much for Stoudamire.

Wonder if OKC will regret that. Most like Rubio will be good and Harden will be good.

Harden will work for OKC...they're gonna be legit very soon....they're a scary ass team

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 06:57 PM
Yeah, as much as I like Rubio, I don't think you can go wrong with a guy like Harden. He seems like a pretty safe pick for me.

Nowitzki4President
06-25-2009, 06:58 PM
Rubio to Minnesota? Steal for them with two picks. Nice. Assuming it happens of course.

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 06:58 PM
Now, I probably would have taken Rubio over Evans...

I wish there was some way to edit out David Stern's face during the draft...

Okay I was bashing Minnesota for that trade. But if they get Rubio here, I'll say I was wrong on that one.

BGMaverick9
06-25-2009, 07:00 PM
Rubio in Minnesota just doesn't seem like a fit if that happens...they don't have an identity, is he the face of a franchise?

Memphis (University) has all these great players who can barely speak. How'd they get into college and make passing grades? Oh wait...

MavsFanFinley
06-25-2009, 07:05 PM
Kings made the right choice. They need someone to help now instead of waiting on Rubio to come along.

He'll fit with Minnesota and what they're doing there.

Rubio to Jefferson all day could be fun to watch.

Tyreke Evans at 4 is somewhat of a shock.

04:57 PM: RUMOR: The Magic and Nets have agreed to a trade that will send Vince Carter and Ryan Anderson to Orlando for Courtney Lee, Rafer Alston and Tony Battie, according to Yahoo.

I would have loved Carter here, damn..

Wayyy to high for Flynn. And why 2 PG's?

06-25-2009, 07:10 PM
How many point guards is Minnesota going to draft?

Pongo
06-25-2009, 07:12 PM
I smell a trade.

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 07:12 PM
Is Minnesota trying to create as many logjams at positions as they can?

They've got two power forwards in Jefferson and Love, and now they just selected two point guards. What is going on in Minnesota?

CadBane
06-25-2009, 07:12 PM
I smell the ghost of Kevin McHale.

Dirkenstien
06-25-2009, 07:13 PM
Yeah Minny has to make a trade now. Why 2 PG's?

CadBane
06-25-2009, 07:15 PM
Ric Bucher says no dice to a trade. Flynn and Rubio would get abused by any decent SG. Not the Mavs though.

92bDad
06-25-2009, 07:16 PM
Looks like Minny is getting talent and making them compete, rather than just handing things out. Competition on a team is always a good thing.

It'll be interesting to see if they gain some trade value in the coming years...imagine T-Wolve team competing and then they make a trade in 2012 for a player to get them over the top.

Best of luck to the T-Wolves, must be nice having a volume of picks.

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 07:17 PM
Stephen Curry is such a Nellie player.

Nellie will be thrilled to have Curry...perfect fit for him

Knicks fans seem as pissed as us Mavs fans are. Didn't think it was possible.

92bDad
06-25-2009, 07:24 PM
My gut tells me that the Knicks picked up a good one in Jordan Hill. My first impression is a young Akeem...perhaps because of how little organized basketball the guy has played. His UPSIDE is pretty huge. The guy looks like a serious baller.

BGMaverick9
06-25-2009, 07:34 PM
Very VERY guard heavy early...it's gonna shift eventually.

We'll get a PG, I DEMAND Maynor, haha.

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 07:35 PM
I think Brandon Jennings is one of the more interesting players in the draft. I like some of his Youtube highlights, but it sounds like there is a bit of a knucklehead factor with him. I wonder what's going to become of him.

92bDad
06-25-2009, 07:41 PM
As I watch this draft, the thing that sticks out to me is how OLD the Mavs are.

We look like a team holding on and perhaps on a slow decline...when will we see a comitment to a youth movement?

AxdemxO
06-25-2009, 07:42 PM
Minny has a really weird situation going on with Rubio and Flynn. The thought seems to be that one of them will be moved and soo far its seems like it will be Rubio.


Would it make sense for Mavs to try to pull something off here??

Yeah, Lawson and Maynor still on the board, I'd feel a lot better about getting one of them with the 22nd instead of the 24th.

DevinHarriswillstart
06-25-2009, 08:16 PM
Teague, Lawson AND Maynor have not been picked yet.

BGMaverick9
06-25-2009, 08:18 PM
Lawson will be one of the picks for sure...it's 50/50 on if someone likes Teague more than Maynor. If that's the case, we'll get him.

FINtastic
06-25-2009, 08:18 PM
Of course with the way the Timberwolves are going, one of them will be gone after this pick. ;)
