@EminemsMnMs’s 2012 NBA Draft Class Evaluation


(Rockets now have 12th and Milwaukee has 14th) Leuer-Brockman+12th for Budinger-Dalembert+14th

Who: Anthony Davis, David Stern, Adam Silver, Stuart Scott, Stephen Smith, Chad Ford, Jay Bilas, Fran Fraschilla, other dudes who I should probably replace
What: 2012 NBA Draft
Where: Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey
When: June 27, @7PM
Why: ‘Cuz ballers gotta make dey cash
How: Slowly for Knicks and Nets fans, Quickly for avid college basketball fans and Anthony Davis

Four tickets for myself and three of my friends, front and center. While New York eagerly awaits their Knicks to make their first selection with the 48th pick, I will inevitably watch an ugly man who is heavily overrated with a heavy uni-brow known as Anthony Davis walk across the stage to shake the smelly hand of NBA Commissioner David Stern as he is selected as the first player comprising this year’s NBA rookie class. His selection will be followed by an underestimated and deep field of hopeful NBA prospects. There aren’t many big names, but there is big talent.

Who is slipping under the radar? Who will make an impact in the NBA?

I’ve looked at many mock drafts, and a lot of them come from Elmo and Big Bird because they were obviously too busy counting cookies to watch college basketball.

There are some heavy sleepers, and some heavily overrated guys.
