I feel like my thesis is due in a couple of hours and I keep going over the final draft time and time again to make sure everything is just perfect.  Now that NBA Draft is upon us, my masterpiece of a mock draft gets put to the test.  Do the months and hours of research and watching college hoops pay off?  Here is my latest mock draft (you can also check out my 2011 NBA Mock Draft) and I will be updating it right until the first name is actually called.  Be sure to join us at The Sports Bank during the draft for our live chat and check out my live pick-by-pick grades.  You can also check out my Big Board by clicking here.

2010 NBA Draft Big Board

NBA Draft

Merry NBA Draft Eve!  Here is my final 2010 NBA Draft Big Board.  This is how I would rank the players if I were an NBA general manager, NOT how I think they are ranked by others or the order they will be selected.  Be sure to check back with The Sports Bank tomorrow for several updated mock drafts.  We will also be live chatting during the draft and handing out live pick-by-pick grades.  To put in simply, we are to the NBA Draft what Lady Gaga is to causing scenes at New York baseball stadiums.

NBA Draft Seeing Less Foreign Prospects Picked

Darko NBA Draft

With the NBA Draft right around the corner, don’t expect to hear a lot of unknown, hard-to-pronounce, foreign names called from the podium.  The recent trend of a draft filled with international prospects is on the decline, but why?  The past failures of teams in drafting players from overseas certainly has something to do with it.

Milwaukee Bucks get an offensive upgrade with Corey Maggette

Corey Maggette

Only a few hours after John Salmons informed the Milwaukee Bucks he was going to opt out of his contract and enter free agency, the Bucks pulled the trigger on a trade that will bring small forward Corey Maggette to Milwaukee in exchange for the Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell’s expiring contracts. By acquiring the physical forward and the 44th overall pick in this year’s draft, the Bucks’ possible 2010 NBA Draft picks are made clearer than they have been since the evaluation process began.

2010 NBA Mock Draft (Role Playing Edition)

2010 NBA Mock Draft

It’s NBA Draft week!  I am more giddy than Adam Lambert at an all boys school.  Make sure to check back to The Sports Bank frequently this week for all the latest draft info.  I will be updating my 2010 NBA Mock Draft Tuesday, Wednesday, and several times leading up to the first pick on Thursday.  We will also be live chatting during the actual draft and posting live grades for each pick so come and join the fun.  You can also check out my 2011 NBA Mock Draft.

When I usually do my NBA Mock Draft, I more times than not tend to make the picks based on what I think the teams WILL do rather than what they SHOULD do.  For today’s mock draft, I enlisted the help of fellow TSB contributors and NBA nerds, Peter Christian (PC) and Andy Weise (AW).  (I would be DK… David Kay.)  We each did some role playing and assumed the general manager position for each NBA team and went through the draft with the picks WE would make if WE were running the team.  Trades were allowed and here are how the selections played out.
