    Honestly I think we need to start thinking about player's that will be available more like in the middle of the first round. I don't think we'll even be picking in the top 10, but that's just my opinion.

    Middle of the 1st -

    1.Johny Flynn -SYR - True PG with Driving,Dishing and good defence
    2.Nick Calathis - FLA - Good SG with Size, a great shot and great court Vision (AKA Gallo the American )
    3. Any Big Defensive minded C/PF that's athletic enough to run the floor in Coach D's system.

    im looking at players like (who'll be avilable around 8-12 'our draft range')

    1. Greg Monroe C- thats the defensive minded C u were asking about, he gets alotof bocked shots about 3 a game, and his rebounding is good and he's fast for a 7 footer and runs the floor very well, he's a Dwight Howard kinda center the big defensive athletic type....he's gonna be really good

    2. Tyreke Evans SG- dude is a flat out scorer and he does it all he could handle the ball very well and could play balhawking defense, reminds me of Joe Johnson

    3. Earl Clark SG/SF- very versitile

    4. Jonny Flynn PG-we need a pg for the future....

    i say take Monroe with our first pick and with our second try and trade for another pick to get Ty Lawson or Flynn...or wait for second round steals like Rice, and Price

    and where we're gonna pick around 10 Evans and Monroe will/should be available

    I agree. That monroe guy looks like the real deal on the defensive side. We already have many scorers so picking him up as a defensive presence is the right move.

    Hey, I was thinking about this line up:

    Duhon- 10-12 ppg
    Lebron- 25+ ppg
    Chandler- 15-18 ppg
    Harrington- 20 ppg
    Lee- 12-14 ppg

    Its about an 85 ppg average. And that's not even counting a second superstar in our team. Plus add on another 25 ppg by our bench. That's about 110 ppg. So we really should build up our defense with this next coming draft.

    ima go out and say Monore is gonna be better then Thabeet.......Thabeet is more of a defensive precense while Monroe is better offensively but both could play both sides of the ball i just like Monroe more(no homo) its gonna be a link between them like Paul-and-Williams

    we need to either draft a pg or a sg maybe a big that can rebound and run.


    CURRY- great scorer outside and in, high bball i.q. proving this year he can play the point.

    RUBIO- great court vision, high bball i.q. , big , good defender

    BUDINGER- high basketball i.q. , great shooter, very athletic

    and maybe someone like taj gibson in the second round

    We should also get a guy who is a threat from three point land since we average a million attemtps a game from behind the arc.

    I agree though we should upgrade on defense and that calls for Hasheem Thabeet.

    our main needs we could get with our 2 draft picks this year and we could possibly trade for another, for example...we draft Monroe with our first pick then we take a gaurd with our second like Flynn or Lawson(trade up) or Rice or Price if we wait till the second round

    or if we take Evans with our first pick then we take Cole Aldrich with our second i see him as a faster more durable Zyndrunas Illgauskas

    See I haven't seen many thabeet highlights, just monroe. I'm gonna check him out (no homo) on youtube. My 3 hour plane ride should be a good time to see some highlights on him.

    Hey by the way, I know it snowed in NY today but how is tomorrow's forecast looking?

    We don't need Al Aminu, we have enough wing players.

    Monroe is good, but Thabeet is a rare and more special talent. Both will be very productive NBA players.

    Both of these list are determined by whos expected and mocked at our draft spot(if the draft was today)


    My first round wishlist.
    Thabeet(its a longshot)
    Greivis Vasquez
    T. Gibson of USC
    Eric Maynor (pure PG)
    Nick Calathes
    Samardo Samuels




    My second round wishlist.
    Victor Claver
    Danny Green
    David Huetras
    AD Vassallo
    Sergio Llull

    Theres not much to offer as last years draft, but we should still keep a eye on the prospects.

    Peace.

    Thabeet would be an excellent fit into our starting lineup but so will Monroe because of his defense and offense....but either one would make me very happy, and Monroe hasn't given any hints what he's doing with the draft, but if he declares he'll instantly be our draft pick in mock drafts(around 10).

    and Al Aminu is real good a special talent but he's a forward and we don't need anymore. I was playing 2k9 and i was looking at our new rosters and we dont have any 2 gaurds at all, so Evans is a very realistic pick for us.....

    Jonny Flynn would be perfect for us he could pass and score and he'll be the perfect starting PG for our new look team for 2010(whatever it may be) and he'll run D'Antoni's offense very well
