The Clips need a point guard and Jordan is perhaps the best passer in the draft. The Steve Nash comparisons are a bit much, but Jordan has a great feel for the game and he should be able to make this team. ---Rodney McKissic

Education

Reminds me a lot of Stephen Jackson because he can score and drives his coach a little crazy with his shot selection. And let's hope he's not like Jackson off the court. ---Rodney McKissic

Education

A bit of a surprise here but Haluska looks to attack offensively and gets to the free-throw line. He's streaky from the outside. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

I thought this guy was a first rounder all the way. I don't know why he slipped so far but Portland just got another steal. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

What is my main man Money doing? Michael Jordan just traded away draft pick Brandon Wright to the Golden State Warriors for Jason Richardson! The Bobcats don't need JRich and Wright could turn out to be another Chris Bosh! Anyway, Richard is the fourth Florida Gator taken tonight with Taurean Green still on the board. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

They say he's China's version of Tony Kukoc. I hope that means he's versatile and can do it all. I hope it doesn't mean he's over hyped. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

This is the seventh international player taken in the draft. He's a big time project who probably won't play in the league anytime soon. If I didn't have the NBA TV package, I wouldn't know anything about this guy. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

They say he's an Aaron Gray type, but why not draft the real thing? I think Gray is going to play 10-12 years in the pros as a rebounder and defender. Hard to believe he's still on the board. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

Portland is putting together a nice young team that's going to be a force in a few years. McRoberts is another nice piece to what should be one of the better teams in the West sooner than later. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

Davidson has a huge wingspan who runs the court well, kind of a poor man's Brandon Wright but not nearly as good offensively. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

Big Baby? Big Maybe! But this isn't a bad pick in the second round even though I think of Robert "Tractor" Traylor every time I see him and we all know what a bust he turned out to be. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

My buddy from California thinks this guy can be another Kevin McHale. He also told me Mike Dunleavy was the next Larry Bird and J.R. Henderson the next Scottie Pippen so I take his opinions with a grain of salt. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

Here's a shocker: The Spurs take an American player! I see a little Bruce Bowen in Williams so it's easy to see why they took him. --- Rodney McKissic

Education

I heard Thursday that the USC coaches were angry about Pruitt turning pro and didn't give favorable recommendations to the NBA scouts. But he's a nice player who can score and is very athletic. Another year in school and Pruitt would have been a first rounder but I don't think he wanted to share the spotlight with incoming freshman O.J. Mayo. ---Rodney McKissic

Education

He's not that big, but Landry is tough and I just saw some footage of him blocking Greg Oden's shot. --- Rodney McKissic
