NBA Mock Draft & Comparisons

June 21, 2011

By:Kevin Jones. 6/21/2011.12:57

I've arrived in New York City for one of my favorite sporting days of the year, the NBA Draft. Unlike the NFL Draft -- which boasts seven intense rounds over three days -- the NBA draft is short and sweet. Five minutes per pick, and I should be out of Newark before 10 o'clock, trying to manage my way into a draftee's after party.

If your team makes a mistake, effects could be felt for the remainder of this decade. Yeah, it's that critical, especially with the lockout coming.

Part Two of the 2011 NBA Mock Draft:

15. Indiana Pacers – Marshon Brooks / G / Providence

      Comparison: Rodney Stuckey

Yeah, he’s the guy that put up the absurd 52 point game against Notre Dame last winter. He’s a tremendous shooter, can rebound and defend. Plus Indiana is pretty stacked in their front court. Watch out for them moving Danny Granger

16. Philadelphia 76ers – Bismack Biyombo / C / Congo

       Comparison: Serge Ibaka

A boom or bust pick is worth the gamble for 76ers, who I’d argue have the softest frontcourt in the NBA. Biyombo is the best shot blocker and post defender in the draft, but without question he is the worst prospect with the ball. Scouts tore him apart in workouts but others are utterly intrigued. There’s even rumors that Biyombo may go as high as five to Toronto.

17. New York Knicks – Justin Harper / F / Richmond

      Comparison: A better Rashard Lewis

My sleeper of the draft should go to the team who has no fourth scoring option after the Carmelo trade. It was made evident in the opening round playoff matchup against Boston that the Knicks were overwhelmed, relying on the likes of Rony Turiaff and Bill Walker. Harper can run, dunk and shoot with the best forwards in the league. His knock is defense, which is exactly while he will be right at home at Madison Square Garden.

18. Washington Wizards – Donatas Montiejunas /F / Lithuania

      Comparison: Austin Daye

Montiejunas was a guy who two weeks was a surefire top 10 pick. Teams are going to get hesitant to pull the trigger on another tall, soft European shooter though. The Wizards have an extra pick to roll the dice. Don’t expect much defense from the Lithuanian though.

19. Charlotte Bobcats – Markieff Morris / F / Kansas

      Comparison: Josh Powell

Although he is taller than his twin brother, Markieff lacks any sort of midrange game. How did Marcus get better? My guess that Markieff is the lazier of the two, which makes him an ideal fit in Charlotte. Add him to Michael Jordan’s growing list of busts.

20. Minnesota Timberwolves - Kenneth Faried / F / Morehead St.

     Comparison: Smaller Joakim Noah

General Manager David Kahn has a new approach to basketball: let’s build fun teams. Ricky Rubio will generate the most buzz but Faried’s energy is unmatched in this draft. He is an essential bench piece for a playoff team, providing hustle, rebounding and tenacious defense. Steal at 20.

21. Portland Trailblazers – Reggie Jackson / PG / Boston College

       Comparison: Jose Calderon

He’s a combo guard with great ball handling ability and an alien like wingspan – 7-0. People are saying his game translates much more to the NBA than it did in the ACC. I don’t see it, but the Blazers are in dire needs of guards.

22. Denver Nuggets-Klay Thompson / G-F / Washington St

      Comparison: Jarvis Hayes

He can shoot and is a Tweener, so Denver is automatically in love. Plus watch out for the Nuggets to deal JR Smith. Houston has been rumored.

23. Houston Rockets – Tobias Harris / F / Tennessee

      Comparison: Ryan Gomes

Harris is undersized for the power forward spot but isn’t very athletic. What is promising about the 18-year-old is his smarts and work ethic. The Rockets could use him to replace Shane Battier on the wing, and he can expose the right person in the post.

24. Oklahoma City Thunder – Kyle Singler / F / Duke

      Comparison: Keith Van Horn

What does OKC need? They have so many role players – Collison, Ibaka, Maynor. So they could use more shooting off the bench, which Singler provides. He has experience in big games. It really does suck we have to stare at his ugly, sweaty mug for probably 10 more years though.

25. Boston Celtics – Tyler Honeycutt / G-F / UCLA

      Comparison- Morris Almond

What sticks out about Honeycutt? He’s a stick. He’s 187 pounds soaking wet and will rarely if ever be able to penetrate an NBA lane. I have bust written all over him.

26. Dallas Mavericks – Chandler Parsons / F /Florida

      Comparison: Taller Sasa Vujacic

Its hard to find a team need for the defending champs. How about replacing Peja Stojakovic? Parsons will be a lesser shooter but more of everything else, especially moving well without the basketball.

27. New Jersey Nets – JaJaun Johnson / F / Purdue

      Comparison: Etan Thomas

Johnson is going to be able to grind for some years in his twenties, but he is already slow. I don’t picture him in the league come the 2020’s… wow that’s weird to say.

28. Chicago Bulls – Shelvin Mack / G / Butler

     Comparison: Raymond Felton

Mack can hold down the fort with Rose out of the lineup and can team up with the MVP against undersized squads at the shooting guard position. There may not be another team in the entire league as desperate for guard depth than the Bulls.

29. San Antonio Spurs – Trey Tompkins / F / Georgia

      Comparison: Marreese Speights

Love his height and jump shooting ability, I just don’t know weather or not he’s going to be able to compete down low in the NBA

30. Chicago Bulls – DeAndre Liggins / G / Kentucky

      Comparison: Courtney Lee

He can ball handle and play defense. Was a huge reason for Kentucky’s deep March Madness run

I found the products to be a great deal. The Lida lida daidaihua makes me less hungry and the fat burn is helping me lose my flab. The instructions that came with it told me that getting my eating at hand was necessary for a winning approach. I really took that to heart and have used a lot more discipline when I am eating and the hoodia makes all that easier. I am doing sit ups and taking the products every day and so far, My flab is disappearing. I dont own a working scale but almost certainly that things are improving podedsja.

Thanks a lot for the helpful write-up. It is also my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an very long latency phase, which means that symptoms of the disease may well not emerge until eventually 30 to 50 years after the original exposure to asbestos. Pleural mesothelioma, and that is the most common variety and influences the area across the lungs, could potentially cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and also a persistent coughing, which may lead to coughing up maintain.
