The Greatest and the Latest
Just as a heads-up, at some point tomorrow we're going to be throwing up a draft-related megapost, featuring the indelible insights of a small army of Headband writers in what's sure to be the greatest single output in our short history. So stay tuned for that. In the meantime, much re-speck to Tim for throwing up the Hollinger post: Hollinger is an innovative mind to say the least, his stuff is always worth reading, and his work on the draft is certainly no exception. And I absolutely fucking love that Jared Dudley--one of the most underrated guys in this year's draft, a probable second-round pick who will be a ten-year pro, mark my words--is rated tenth overall in Hollinger's ratings. Well played. That said, I'm not ready to take Thaddeus Young; sorry, John. The ten-spot discrepancy between Green and Brewer is pretty interesting, though.
Anyways, moving on to guys currently in the League.. the latest rumors have the Pacers and Lakers out of the KG talks entirely, with Phoenix very much back in the picture. Details are sketchy, but this situation has us getting Marion with KG headed to Phoenix. The only problem is that the story (as reported by professional douchebag Jim Gray) doesn't illuminate who the C's would be giving up, referring only to "the fifth pick in Thursday's draft and players" going to Minnesota.
As mentioned before, I'm a big fan of bringing Marion to Boston. I'd give up pretty much anything besides Paul and Al to make this happen, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
