1. Knicks (Okafor)
2. Wolves (Towns)
3. Lakers (Mudiaye)
4. 76ers (Russell)
5. Magic (Winslow)
6. Kings (Cauley Stein)
7. Nuggets (Hezonja)
8. Hornets (Booker)
9. Pistons (Porzingas)
10. Heat (Johnson)
11. Jazz (Lyles)
12. Pacers (Turner)

To early to predict which players will go where, but I will post what I would bet on for tonight (though it is a crapshoot):

1. Nuggets
2. Wolves
3. Knicks
4. Lakers
5. Sixers
6. Magic
7. Kings
8. Pistons
9. Hornets
10. Heat
11. Pacers
12. Jazz
13. Suns
14. Thunder

I think if this is how it ended up, the Nuggets would pick Okafor next to put next to Nurkic, the Wolves with KAT, Knicks with Russell, Lakers with Mudiay, and Sixers with Winslow/Hezonja

I kind of want the sixers to get the 6th pick just so they stop tanking. Lol, but really that 6th pick can vault them to super team status in a couple of years. Draft hezonja/johnson and Russell and bring in saric. That could be their future line up right there.
Also, Lakers have had enough success over the years and i don't want to see them win anymore championships anytime soon. They'll be fine without it, but potentially great with it lol

Wolves ( Because NBA is paying them back since Love left)
Knicks (OMG they want the biggest market to be relevant )
76ers ( They want them to stop tanking! )
Lakers ( They don't want them to continue struggling/ new heir once Kobe retires )
Magic ( Same as wolves, but with Dwight )
Kings ( New ownership, special thanks for buying the team )
Nuggets ( Don't really have one for them, Melo?? )
Pistons (IDK )
Hornets ( Helping out MJ )
Heat ( Since Lebron left )
Pacers ( PG13 getting hurt, and Hibbert's been trash, a way of keeping them relevant )
Jazz ( IDK )
Suns ( Have to get something for Nash )
Thunder ( Making OKC even stronger, this way they can win a ship and keep Durant )

11. Indiana Pacers (Myles Turner)
12. Utah Jazz (Kelly Oubre)

Honestly if you are towns/oka you would want to play for the wolves because they have a much brighter future... Wiggins... LA is everyones dream spot but going and play with kobe for years would be horrid.

No player would rather play in Minnesota over LA just like no player would pick the Sixers over Lakers.

Spot on... If I am a pick and Kobe retired their isnt a team id want to play for over the lakers but the position they are in the wolves are much much more interesting.... They have wiggins and a ton of high upside talent where the lakers have a guy that will be way to hard on new kids coming in because he wants people to play like he does which i admire but nobody will work as hard as Kobe... If I am one of those 2 I am praying the wolves take me and stack me with wiggins.

So with the Lottery concluded I see the draft going

1. Minnesota Timberwolves-Karl-Anthony Towns
2. Los Angeles Lakers-D'Angelo Russell
3. Philadelphia 76ers-Emmanuel Mudiay
4. New York Knicks-Jahlil Okafor
5. Orlando Magic-Mario Hezonja
6. Sacramento Kings-Justise Winslow
7. Denver Nuggets-Kristaps Porzingis
8. Detroit Pistons-Frank Kaminsky
9. Charlotte Hornets-Willie Cauley-Stein
10. Miami Heat-Stanley Johnson
11. Indiana Pacers-Myles Turner
12. Utah Jazz-Kelly Oubre
13. Phoenix Suns-Sam Dekker
14. Oklahoma City Thunder-Devin Booker

If the Lakers pass up on Okafor I believe he'll still be available for New York because the 76ers need a PG, not another big man. I think the Lakers should take Russell and go all in in Free Agency for Mark Gasol. Not predicting he would go to LA, but D'Angelo Russell may give him cause to pause.

I think Russell is the best player in this draft.

I dont disagree at all... I would love my team to have guys that work as hard as a Kobe.. Who honestly works harder than Kobe even now? The work ethic he has is borderline insane and I dont blame him on that because its the love/respect for the game but in todays NBA its a double Edged sword and can kill news guys coming in like a towns/OKA/Russel... Its his work ethic and him never wanting to take a back seat mentality... One I think is amazing the other i think he needs to loosen up on... He needs to realize making others around him better is more important and that could go along way. I dont fault him for players not wanting to play with him because of the work ethic... He is a machine and expects people to put in the effort he does.

We held on, just. Now excuse me whilst I go and watch countless Emmanuel Mudiay videos on YouTube and hope Philly takes him instead of D'Angelo Russell :laugh2:

I actually think the best player in the draft will ended up drafted at number 5 in the perfect spot for him: Justise Winslow on the Orlando Magic.

Winslow's a long, athletic wing who excelled at Duke while winning a national championship as a freshman. Tyus Jones won MOP and Jahlil Okafor will go 1 or 2, but I watched every Duke game this year and couldn't be more convinced he's their best pro prospect. He can already play above-average NBA defense, and has the length and athleticism to improve there. Offensively, he's a one man fast break who can both slash and shoot. He's ready for pro ball. I think Oladipo-Winslow-Payton would/are going to be a nice nucleus for Orlando.

I really can't be swayed into Mudiay as a top 4 pick. Yeah, he excelled in high school and was ranked highly, but there's just something about a guard developing overseas against weaker competition. There's too much "Brandon Jennings" there for my liking.

I think the top 5 end up: Towns, Okafor, Russell (perfect Philly fit), Mudiay, and Winslow. I just happen to think the player of the draft ends up at 5.

The Pau/Kobe issues don't really have much leverage. Kobe was supposed to do a speech on Pau's return to LA this season.

The Bynum/D12,Shaq thing, sure. But those are very specific people. Shaq is more arrogant than Kobe and is notoriously lazy. Dwight wants to have fun and while he's a good player, he and Kobe don't mix. I get that. And Bynum is batshit crazy. He claimed he never loved basketball. No **** he's gonna piss off Kobe.

Why don't you read the articles about how Randle has said Kobe has been a mentor to him since he was drafted and all the words of encouragement he's given since he broke his leg.
Or perhaps you can read on Clarkson who said Kobe text him as soon as he got drafted and he was so shocked he thought he was being pranked. He also had a lot to say about how Kobe has helped him this season as well. Not to mention Wes Johnson and Swag P who Kobe sought out to work out with last summer.

Those kids certainly seem like they aren't being "killed" by Kobe. In fact they rave about him.

Yea agreed... I want russel but I think the lakers will take him... I think Mudlay/OKA are busts and the lakers should take towns or Russel... I think sixers will **** up and take the true pg in mudlay though because we have Embid and noel.

Also yea they seem to fit well with Kobe but you wont know for a few years... Everyone always says the same thing until they leave Kobe... Let me say I dont like how kobe plays right now or has played the last few years on the decline but you will never hear me ***** about his work ethic or passion... If this was 20 years ago it wouldnt be an issue... Kids like Dwight come in and want the perfect enviroment and want to be coddled and so on and that can hurt teams and could hurt yours over the next few seasons if Kobe has issues taking a back seat or expects others to work like he does. The dude has the passion of 10 prime players and a better work ethic then james/Jordan combined in my opinion.

Well if you actually knew anything which from the looks of this post tells me you don't you would know that the Sixers got the pick it wanted. They don't need a big man with Noel/Embiid and the first 2 picks will most likely be big men. They are going to get a point guard and probably a pretty good one at that which is exactly what they need. They didn't lose their spot. They stayed at number 3 and they have potentially 4 picks next year. So while your jumping up and down like a teenage girl at a Taylor Swift concert at your excitement of you thinking Philly didn't get what they wanted they actually did.

They are going to get a point guard and probably a pretty good one at that which is exactly what they need. They didn't lose their spot. They stayed at number 3 and they have potentially 4 picks next year. So while your jumping up and down like a teenage girl at a Taylor Swift concert at your excitement of you thinking Philly didn't get what they wanted they actually did.

Very insightful. Thank you for that education and good luck with your franchise which is evidently poised for greatness.

Philadelphia is going to be terrible next year. Book it.

sure wont be a playoff team but also wont be terrible (compared to last 2 years). fully expect to be drafting in the 8-12 range
