    ............ and so it begins.

    Barring any trades and any MAJOR tanking by the GST's, we should have 2 lottery picks (or just outside), plus our 2nd.

    I believe many have surmised that 2013 will be weak because of how deep 2012 was .. not necessarily correct. This could have very well lended itself to why KOC didn't break the bank on 2012 .. knowing we'd have two good picks in '13.

    There are so many prospects to break down, not to mention the countless number that will emerge over the next 8/9 months .. so where to start? Let's talk PG's;


    - Myck Kabongo (I called this one a year ago .. not ready. He needs to get dialed in to playing under control or he's worthless)
    - C.J. McCollum (not sold, though he's rated #1 per DX)
    - Ryan Harrow (UK kid. Strong handles, crafty, athletic, explosive .. skinny)
    - Michael Carter-Williams (not sold he's a PG)
    - Phil Pressey (a lot of people love this kid, I haven't seen it)

    There's a few more, but that's enough to get things started .. all-in-all a very, very weak PG draft crop.

    Welcome to the next draft .. and for all of those haters that think this thread was too early .. I agree .. but **** you anyway.

    You think Trey Burke is capable of being a starer in NBA?

    So who will go #1 in this next draft, are there any can't miss stars in the 2013 draft, and who?

    If we want to hit the 10,000 post mark then we need some treasure hunting banter going on immediately. We will have to rely on PKM to get that started.

    My prediction (VERY early) is Nerlens Noel.

    1) Noel
    2) Mohammed
    3) Zeller (he'll slip, I believe .. but not past 5 or 6)

    kabongo and harrow are electric but lets see If they get Stronger because i dunno if they can Hang in the league yet but Ill be watching those two Because i think we need a pg pretty bad. i Also like the kid BJ Young on arkansas I got to see him when he played against my cousin in AAU a couple summers Ago and he was dirrrrty But then other Guys who I like who arent pgs are Bennett, Nash on okie state

    My dad is a Hoosier grad and He loves the Big 10 and said the Dude Aaron Craft will be a good Pro but I watched the big dance with him and I like his game kinda but I liked Lenzelle Smith better.

    PKM: You said the Jazz may have 2 lottery picks, or close to it: Where do you believe the Jazz's own pick ends up??

    Always will with Calipari. Who you don't see is Cauley-Stein (7 footer that plays wide receiver at a high level) and Wiltjer returning (6'9 3pt marksman and hook over either shoulder). We also got the Mays transfer ..

    We lost 95% of our points, rebounding, assists .. and Vegas has UK favored to win. I don't see it, but pretty remarkable.

    I am almost sold on Poythress already as an explosive and versatile combo forward. I'm easy.

    Depending on how the roster shapes up, the Jazz should be challenging for the 4 - 6 seed this year, 2nd in the division behind OKC. If we 'dump' Al Jefferson, we'll be lower.

    Without doing much if any research, my two top possible SF's in the draft are CJ Leslie and Alex Poythress. In no particular order as of right now.

    Leslie coulda been .. chose bad coaching, already had the QMIller problem .. he's more mature, but still the same problems. I like him, though.
    Poyhthress info: Straight A kid .. HARD working gym rat.

    Gotta put my plug in for Mario daric. Then again I was embarrassed that my guy Jeff Taylor didn't even go 1st round so what do I know.

    Lebryan Nash ought to be in the SF discussion, and maybe Adonis Thomas as well.
