Green needs to stay, right now he'd be a mid 2nd rounder IMO, if he can showcase himself as a playmaker next season he'd improve his stock greatly.

Yeah, I have been saying that about Green for some time.  Next season with the other guys gone, he'd be able to show his ability to score more and make plays to get others involved.

I think he can be a decent pro but its much harder to get a good shot as a 2nd round pick.

Well, some 2nd round picks can hit it big in the NBA. Mike Redd and Gilbert Arenas come to mind in terms of recent players, but I'm not comparing Green to them.

Yeah, you can make it as a 2nd rounder but you have to be flawless in camp and stuff.

As a 1st rounder you have a guaranteed deal so you are assured a roster spot.

HUGE difference between an NBA first and second round pick.  It's an uphill battle all the way if you're not a 1st round pick in the NBA.

Even if he doesn't blow everyone away at camp he can go to the NBADL and work on his game and see what happens the next season.

Bob Huggins jumped ship at Kansas State and is headed back to WV.

Yeah, but NBADL is a far cry from a 1st round guaranteed spot.


But hey, he could wow people before the daft and slide in the bottom of Rd. 1, who knows.  1 think for sure Green is clutch and a winner.

Donovan = pure class.  IMO he handled it the appropriate way, unlike Mr. Saban.  Donovan said UK called, asked him if he was interested and he said No, I'm happy where I'm at.  He didn't even let UK offer him or talk money.  He said he didn't want to make it about money or make it a bidding war.  Pure class.  Billy D is a model coach IMO.


Looks like ESPN has Horford rated 4th, Noah 5th, Brewer 8th, and Green 45th.  Won't surprise me though if Brewer leapfrogs Noah andmaybe even Horford when all is said and done.

I think the draft is mid June, not sure though.

If the Hawks don't get at least a top 3 pick, the pick is Phoenix's. Imagine the Suns with Marion, Amare, and Noah....wow.
