NBA DRAFTNET has us picking Jan Vesely :wtf:
 
Why does NBADRAFTnet have us picking: Jan Vesely?

2011 Mock Draft | NBADraft.net

I would think that even Jimmer would get a look before Vesely.

chillax :cookie:

its not official. every week there's 2 new guys in our spot in these mocks.

Vesely has been holding strong at the 5 on that and other sites. It's interesting that Kemba has suddenly fallen all the way to 13th and Tristan has moved up to 6th.

Big deal, i've seen Kanter as low as 8th and 6th. And DX has us taking Walker. All i have to say is if we take Vesely i'll cry.Hoopshype has us taking Leonard.

So to recap, the various boards as of right now have us taking Vesely, Kemba, Leonard and Valanciunas was also rumured to be coming here. That just tells me nobody has a fucking clue.

I wouldn't worry about us picking Vesely though, he's under contract till 2013 so the team that drafts him wouldn't even see him till 2014. If there is no pre determined buy-out ahead of time I can't see that happening.

"pretty dumber", was intentional before anyone kills me for it.

not really, its just depends on which way you CHOOSE to look at it.
i was refering to it as being the safe pick
in a league that's majority is black (don't know the exact stats and too lazy to look it up)
then take into account the ratio of euro busts to euro draft picks
and number of white north americans playing in the league and the bust, yada yada yada....

our last two drafts picks have been successful. hope the trend continues

Willing to bet there have been more "black" busts than Euro busts...

Its irrelevant though, I wish we had a IQ test to become a member here...can't have everything you want.

Dude, you've been warned once already about making racial generalizations and perpetuating stereotypes, so consider this your final warning.
