Freeman: Blazers Select Argentinosaurus in Dinosaur Draft

32

Now for a little whimsy in the super serious world of pre-draft prognostication. Eric Freeman writes on Free Darko that in a Dinosaur draft the Blazers should take Argentinosaurus with the #22 pick in the first round... ------------------------------ The Blazers are at a crossroads with Kevin Pritchard potentially heading out the door and Greg Oden seemingly becoming less a part of the team's future plans with each passing year. This next season needs to be a time to figure things out and decide which of their considerable young assets should be kept around and which should be dealt for needed pieces. In short, they don't need any more players around to make things even more complicated. That's why Argentinosaurus is the perfect pick -- even at 97 million years of age, he won't be ready for the NBA for at least another season. The fossil record on this beast is startingly incomplete, but at an estimated 24-feet-tall, the potential is certainly there. I even hear Paul Allen's already booked him a sail barge to Spain, where he's likely to replace Tiago Splitter in the Real Madrid lineup. ------------------------------ BE's mock draft table has been duly updated. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
