Watched the Draft Combine...predictions

some of it and got to see the end with Kanter. He looked alright, in the very little that I saw. He played pretty physical, and actually surprised me. He was a bit more athletic than I thought he was, but not outstanding. They ran a full court drill, so I didn't get to see much of his post moves/skill.

As for Biyombo, I think he has potential, but I do think some people on here are way too high on him. He is a good defender and pretty physical but other than that doesn't really have much to offer on offense. Can't shoot, no post game, just can dunk and is physical which I do think is something we need, but as for him coming in and being some star player, I don't see it happening. That isn't to say that later down the road, he isn't going to develop nicely, but I think he has a whole lot of work to get there and it is not as close as some people think. But defensively, he is terrific. Anyone saying to take Biyombo over Derrick Williams at #2 is crazy. I think Williams will be the best player in this draft. 

Kenneth Faried is a guy that I think will have a good career. I see him being one of the players from this draft that will have the best career. He will contribute immediately, and will be a guy teams would want to have. He is an energy guy who rebounds and plays defense. Not saying he will be a Joakim Noah, but a similar role.

Brandon Knight  is going be better than people think he will be. Same with Shelvin Mack.

Kemba Walker will be a good sixth man for some team. I see him being a Jason Terry kind of guy and having that type of role off the bench.

I think Deandre Liggins from Kentucky is going to be a pretty good player as well. Especially a guy off the bench who can defend. 


Not that we would be taking any of those last 4, but it's just a feeling that I have. 

Ooh and by the way, don't trade for Perkins. Yes he brings a presence, but that is about it. He averages one more point, and one more rebound than Biedrins. He is overrated. Works for the Thunder, because they have so many other option (KD, Westbrook, Ibaka, Harden)
