Something tells me the results would be a little different if this was a Duke site, a UK site or some God-forsaken site in Sydney!!

As great as Joel might be, the league is no longer dominated by centers. It has become a fast paced game that is catered to guards and small forwards.

The three point line changed things for sure, but this guy is being compared to The Dream. That kind of talent finds a way.

A lot depends on the order of who picks and if they are picking for themselves or for trades. Seems like halve the first round guys get traded before the thing is over.

I had to pick Parker. If you are picking in the lottery, then your team needs help now. Parker was the only one I think is close to ready both mentally and physical for the NBA. Wiggins and Embiid will be like Ben was this year - almost there at the end of the season. I didn't see enough of Randle and Exum to say either way, but I'm assuming they will be like Wigs and Joel the first NBA year.

Julius Randle. Easy. Yes, Embiid has room for growth, but then, so does Randle, whose outside game will improve. He's a fantastic passer, runs the court, and can literally push players out of the way. Will have a dominating NBA career.
