With the NBA Draft now five days away, it is time to break out my second 2011 NBA Draft mailbag in which I answer some of your e-mails or comments.  In this edition, we talk Alec Burks, Enes Kanter, Brandon Knight, Isaiah Thomas, whether the Cavs would be smart to not draft Kyrie Irving, and compare the top of this draft class to year’s past.
