    DeAndre Jordan

    NBA Postion:Center
    Class:Freshman
    Ht:7-0

    Damn, he made a nice pass in the paint, something I never seen Curry or Randolph do. He's a pretty raw player though.



    My favorite draft site is draftexpress.com

    Ricky Rubio is supposedly the best player in the world. Lets draft Deandre this year and Rubio next year. Most importantly we need to move Randolph, Crawford, Jefferies. They all have another 3 years on their contracts after this one and we need to clear space for when king James is free agent

    Jason Thompson looks like he is getting better and better each season. A senior is always good to have out of college because of there experience. Kinda like Josh Howard a few years back, expect Thompson is much taller, haven't heard much about him. Thompson according to draft express will be a early 2nd round pick.

    I am seeing and hearing rumors about DeAndre Jordon heading to the 2009 draft, and not declaring for the 2008 draft, anyone hear something about that?

    He should stay in college, his skills aren't there yet; hopefully with good ethic he will get there.

    But theres no question he's the most athletic and explosive 7 foot prospect in this year draft and next year.

    That dunk was crazy, the way he is so athletic is just unbelieveable. Because of his age, and experience he probably would have a hard time getting used to the NBA speed, pace, size, and strengh. I think most of you heard that his work ethic isn't the best, he actually has a poor work ethic which can lower his chance at making himself an NBA READY player. If he worked on his game, and would take school seriously, he would be the top pick in the 2009, very close to the wire with Rubio, but depending who wants who Jordon is up there as a top 3 pick.

    I wanted to point out one thing, I was watching highlights of the UCONN S. Florida game yesterday, and Hasheem Thabeet was brought to my attention before, but this time even more, I know this is a college division, but still getting 8 blocks in one game is crazy. This definately takes away from his rebounding total of 7.7 per game this season. He averages 4.3 blocks a game, and 10.7 points per game.

    My concern about Hasheem Thabeet is if he is NBA ready or not, but I dont know if he will be able to handle the speed, strengh, and in the post game of the NBAs centers. If work he will make is raw offensive play a hazard if he works on it! Hasheem Thabeet is a sophomore in UConn. The question is will he be headed to the NBA draft in 2008? I see potential in this guy. Another year in college might help him, but then again his defense will be a factor who ever picks him up in the draft if he desides he wants to come to the NBA.
