    I think Deron Williams will go in the middle of the 1st round. Switch Warrick and Villaneuva. I also think wayne simien will go a little highter. Jarret Jack and Francisco Garcia will go slightly lower. I don't think Turiaf deserves or will go in the 1st round and won't be succesful in the NBA. He chockes in the Clutch. Oh...and by the way whoever is picked by Atlanta is screwed. In their last 16 years all their rookies have been underachieving and not even make it to the the Rookie all-star team (especially their early 1st round picks. I mean look at Shaun Livingsyton).It's a curse.

    But if they do win it, then I see him going pro, like Carmelo. I'd like to see him stay in school, but if UNC wins it all, I realy see him going pro.

    Livingston plays for the Clippers. Some of the picks make sense, but some, I admit, don't. Like I said, it's really too early to tell, but I just wanted to see what my view of the draft would look like.

    Livingston has only played 16 games this year, hes been injured for so long, so its hard to judge a rookie on his first games, i think he will improve with time though

    Josh Childress is having a pretty good year. His team is so bad and sort of gets overshadowed by Al Harrington and Josh Smith.

    9 points 6 rebounds and 2 assists arent bad stats for a backup guard, but they are definently terrible, underachieving stats for someone taken 6th overall!!

    He is a rookie though trying to develop on a really, really bad team. Give him some time.

    when you're drfted late first round/second round you get time to develop, but when you're take top 10 overall, you're expected to go right into starting and producing, you have some big shoes to fill, and hes not filling them

    I just have a gut feeling that I've never had before that MArvin Williams is really something special. I honestly think he's atleast the next KG. He can hit 3s all night + power + post moves + fundemantals + vince Carter type of dunker + poise + clutch + leader + humble + loves basketball + team player + entangebles. He's the kind of player that you would be blessed to have on your team. The team that picks 1st overall and doesn't draft him will come back a couple of years from now and shoot them selfes. Please Isiah do anything in your abilities to get this guy. hey the MAgic got Penny when he was drated. I don't care trade Steph + Kurt + Crawford + whatever the other team wants to get this guy. This team desperatly needs a nice clean fresh to finally to have the team that wins it all. Williams would be the best franchise player in the League. Can we finally be the big winners once in a while. I predict that he'll win the MVP atleast 3 times and win atleat 2 championship rings. 5 years from now somene will pull up this forum and say that I was a genius. I also think that Bogut will be a huge bust. I love Willliams. (please God let us get Williams)

    Knickerbocker I believe you are slightly confused. besides for the Childress/Livingston mess up...are you forgetting Josh Smith? Hes the guy who won the Slam Dunk comp and played in the rookie all star game right?? and Childress yea...in about 25 MPG they both average 8+ PPG, 5+ RPG...i mean there not allstars but they are young and have potential.

    16 years that is a long time, but not all are horrible...
    Josh Smith, Josh Childress, Donta Smith, Boris Diaw, Pau Gasol, DeMarr Johnson, Jason Terry, Jumaine Jones, Roshown McLeod, Chris Crawford, Alan Henderson, Stacey Augmon....are pretty decent players...

    yea you expect draftees to come in and make a big impact on a horrible team, like Okafor does but Smith is from HS and thats a lot of pressure to handle at that age...

    I'm not done yet done, Williams also got pastion and he doesn't still have to prove anything. He's a safe pick and still has a lot of potential (more than KG, its crazy). He's so good that it woulld be a disappointment if he turns out to be "only" as good as Jermaine O'neal. Hey anyone think we can start a "draft Williams" chant at every game to convice IT to trade for him.

    werent people saying this about Jay Williams, there KnickerBocker...they praise and praise and you get rid of what you have to to get him and he breaks his leg...never to play basketball again...you cant put that kind of investment in a guy when you dont know how theyll be able to adapt to the pros....not saying hell be a great player in the nba, he does have A LOT of potential...just got to be careful

    I don't think that Marvin Williams is coming out this year. He is really well liked by Roy Williams and will start next season.

    He's definitly coming out, alot of sites confirmed it. And NYknicks15 what happened to Jay was totally different, heck Mj could of have broke his foot and never play in the NBa again, It could happen to anyone. Besides the worst case situation would be that he is a bust (99.9% not going to happen), he'll still be better than anybody we have on our team (he'll be like a Jermaine O'neal). HE's also very mature like Lebron and everybody who knows him loves him. If we get him I gurantee everone a title witin 4 years (much earlier than we'll get with the sucky team we currently have)
