Default Draft Updates

Barnes, Henson Close To Decisions On Draft - RealGM Wiretap

Looks like Henson and Barnes might declare, which is good in our case

Irving Weighing Options In Regards To Draft - RealGM Wiretap

Irving may still be on the fence on this. If he doesn't declare, then everybody else moves up one spot.

Kemba Walker Hints At Return To UConn - RealGM Wiretap

For those high about Walker, this might be a problem if he decides to come back to UConn. Let's hope they lose their game and he declares for the draft :P

Thompkins, Leslie Declare For Draft - RealGM Wiretap

Decision To Declare For Draft Affected By Possible Lockout - RealGM Wiretap

Why would Kemba go back to UCONN? He just won a championship and doesn't need to go back at all. He is considered one of the top picks and its pointless to go back. If he doesn't declare for the draft then this is the weakest draft in NBA history.

Enes Kanter FTW.

I'll bet the reason Kanter's taking his time coming back from injury is that a lottery team has already contacted him and told him they're drafting him if available.

My top 5 picks are:

1. Kemba Walker
2. Derrick Williams
3. Perry Jones
4. Brandon Knight
5. Terrence Jones

Barnes, Irving, and Kanter are overrated to the max.

After the game, I think it mentioned that Kemba Walker had graduated after only three years in school.

Theres no such thing as a three year degree. He had a four year degree and finished it in three by working hard.

good to know... there are three year degrees in Canada though, and such are considered the equivalent of a 4 year degree in the US.... doesn't sound like such an amazing feat, but commendable nonetheless.

That was the case when I started University in the late 90s. It was because Ontario still had 5 years of high school.

It's not like that any more, though.

I did google it and found nothing. Anyway, thanks EggsToTheBBQ, figured that was the case. Working on my masters degree right now and the American students in my program were at a similar level to us when they entered it.
