    Not really surprised by any of those winners. 
    As for Round 2, I’d wager that:
    Porter will trounce Carter-Williams
    Oladipo will beat Trade Down like he was its daddy
    Len v Zeller will be close
    But the biggest fireworks are gonna come between Burke and McCollum.  That thing might go over the 100 comment line!

    Just because – here’s a snippet from Bill Simmons’ 2012 NBA Draft Diary:

    “8:31 — Biggest loser of the draft so far: Austin’s goatee. He
    connected on 37 percent of his 3s and 3 percent of his whiskers. House
    calls for a “MUST IMPROVE: PUBERTY” graphic.”

    McLemore has fallen to 6th on Ford’s big board. Something or nothing?

      fearthepelicans Ford has said he makes his board dependant on how GMs and scouts feel about the guys, not based on his personal feelings. If he is hearing that Len and Bennett are moving ahead of him, he could be there for us at 6.

        Michael McNamara fearthepelicans I’m sure that every team is doing their due diligence and players will move up and down during the next few weeks. 
        But what could make McLemore slide to #6 when he’s been touted as a #1 or #2 pick all spring long?

        nolafredo Michael McNamara fearthepelicans I’m not sure, but I’d love for him to be a Paul Pierce-esque pick for the Pelicans first draft.
