NBA Thoughts – 2013 Mock Draft

June 26, 2013 1 comment

Welcome everyone to the very first annual NBA Mock Draft by Dustin James here at the MAN CAVE! The “King of the Man Cave” (or “Jeremy Lambert” as some people call him) recently asked me if I could put together an NBA mock draft for the blog since I do consider myself a “draft guru” in both the NBA and the NFL drafts. I don’t know why, but when draft time rolls around I become obsessed with any and all information regarding the draft. Unlike the NFL Draft, the NBA Draft is extremely special because it really only takes the addition of one superstar to change the layout of your team. Last year for instance, by drafting the NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard, the Portland Trailblazers has set themselves up nicely for the future with a core of Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Nic Batum, and Wesley Matthews. If Portland can score another superstar with the 10th pick in this draft, the Blazers should not only see a return to the playoffs, but they could actually win their first playoff series in some time. Unfortunately for a team like Portland, it’s hard for them to improve in free agency because Portland isn’t exactly a city that NBA players are dying to live in. Therefore the draft becomes even more important because it becomes the only way a team like the Blazers can nab an elite talent. 

If you want a good example of how to build an NBA team through the draft, look no further than the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder had 3-4 excellent drafts in a row (they drafted Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, & Serge Ibaka all in a 3-year span) and have blossomed into one of the best teams in the league. Do you think NBA free agents eye Oklahoma City as a great place to live and a place they want to play in? No. However, with home-grown talent like Durant and Westbrook, NBA free agents are definitely listing OKC as a place where they would like to play. Just another benefit of being an NBA team that drafts great. 
 
Anyway, this year’s draft is especially special because no one really knows who’s going #1 and no one really knows if there’s a guaranteed superstar hiding in this draft somewhere. Everyone says it’s a “deep draft” where you could possibly even find a decent starter somewhere in the second-round, but there is no one who screams “A+ TALENT” on paper. Now, doesn’t that get you excited? Either way, it’s high time we stopped the bull and started getting down to business. With all that said, I present to you……..
