2013 NBA Draft Was A Crapshoot Just Like Everything Else

Otto Porter to the Washington Wizards at #3 was the only thing you could find on mock boards everywhere in terms of trying to predict the 2013 NBA Draft.  Everything else?  Crapshoot. Flat-out crapshoot.  Anthony Bennett to the Cavaliers at #1?  Seriously?  They were going center, weren’t they?

Victor Oladipo shoots up to #2 and the Magic?  A little surprising there too.  They did want to figure out the backcourt, but Orlando could have used a point man or center assuming Dwight Howard is OFFICIALLY OUT OF THE PICTURE.

A Patriot League kid at #10 to Portland in C.J. McCollum?  Maybe just a valid example of how weak the draft has become.  McCollum is a nice player, but common.  #10?  In the end, shocking.

The point here is not to disrespect the kids in this NBA pool.  Lots of talent and potential and class acts and defensive players.  The point is just to state the unpredictability of the NBA Draft.  AND, to state in comparison, at the same time, that the NFL Draft is the only draft that is unpredictable or only thing in LIFE that is unpredictable is simply stupid.

The NBA Draft was as unpredictable as anything tonight.  The only thing that was predictable was David Stern leaving his spot as commissioner in February, 2014.
