Go to the link and hit top videos, to see them go through the tp ten picks. And tell me if this sounds logical. Looks to me like he's pulling it out of his ass?

2009 NBA Draft - ESPN


Who the fuck is Doug Gottlieb?

Ugh ... I hope not. I'm definitely not on the Harden bandwagon.

I think he'd be our best option at the SG position.

Although:

I forgot which team, but they said Harden's workout was one of the worst they've
If he gets beyond the top 5 i wouldn't be surprised that he drops to us.

I'd be happy if Harden fell to us, but I don't think it's happening. The latest mocks have Harden going #2 to Memphis.

There are only 2 wing players that can create off the dribble. Its Harden and Tyreke Evans. If any of these 2 fall to the Raptors, we have our idea wing player for the future.

Funny, cause yesterday I was watching NBATV's draft preview and they predicted Thabeet would fall out of the top 5 and project him to be a late lottery-mid first round pick.

The tides sure have changed.

I think alot of these guys take shots in the dark, in the off chance that they are right here or there, and try to look like geniuses to raise their status.

Yeah, I heard Thabeet falling out of the top 5 as well. There's always the one kid that expects to go high and gets his hopes dashed. Happened with Pierce, happened with Marcej Lampe, happened with Rasard Lewis, it happened with Jameer Nelson and it happened with Pavol Podkolzine..

But I think we should try to trust their judgement from time to time. After all, they are PAID professionals.

Remember the Darrell Arthur mystery last year where everyone predicted him to go in the late lottery?

Well someone (I think Chad Ford, not too sure tho) projected him as late first-round, which was where he ended up.

Yeah, but who do you believe. It seems like 90% are way off after the lottery and one or two get lucky with obscure predictions.

I agree completely, and wish BC would anti-up and aggressively acquire the type of player we need, Evans can attack the basket at will, and Harden is the most complete 2 in the draft...but their is no way he slips beyond OKC, if the grizz take Thabeet which they will after meeting with him yesterday, OKC takes Harden no doubt.

I am wishing this happens. Harden is much better then DeRozan and I think Harden will help us out a lot.

Harden is gonna be a seriously solid pick. If he falls to 9 then he had better be chosen.

Don't forget Jeff Teague. Who is being very underrated. He's be a perfect dribble penetration fit in this lineup... the only reason he's not a top 6 lock right now is that he's a SG in a 6'2 PG's body

But he's not James Harden.
I'd even like to trade up for him.

Harden is smart, strong, and from all accounts has improved his already good shooting. I think it would be great if he fell to number 9...but it's not going to happen.
