Seeing as how this is a site for Blazers fans, it's only fitting that the first question be related to our beloved Blazers.
I'm getting antsy waiting for the draft lottery. The anticipation is killing me, so to kill some time I thought I'd throw out some questions to banter about.
Question 1: There are some pretty good small forwards coming into the draft this year. Most of them, outside of MKG, appear to available if the PTB draft at #6.
Toss Up: Who has the better career? Nic Batum or one of the small forwards from the available 2012 draft pool? Which one(s)?
Question 2: The more I watch James Harden, the more impressed I get. I'd love to sign him away from the Thunder though it seems unlikely. With his stock rising, Oklahoma City could have 3 players who are top 3 for their respective position.
Toss up: If you could build your team around one of OKC's big 3 which would it be?
Question 3: Portland will be represented pretty well in this draft. There was some bad blood between T. Ross and T. Jones after Jones reneged on his commitment to UW. Now the two Portland natives will have a chance to compete at the next level.
Toss Up: Which Portland native has the better career? T. Ross or T. Jones
Question 4: There's been a ton of talk on BE about the top 2 point guards in this draft class. Their games couldn't be more opposite. Marshall is a traditional pass first PG while Lillard is a more modern day score first PG.
Toss Up: Which style fits the Blazers needs more? Traditional PG who can set up others? Scoring PG who gets buckets
