ESPN: Wall a consensus top pick

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks
MBSK 09_10 UK_ARK Web 51.jpgAccording to ESPN.com, it doesn't matter who has the top pick in this year's 2010 NBA Draft. John Wall is the man, and no draft lottery is going to change that.

I had a chance to cycle through ESPN's draft lottery this afternoon (special thanks to the UK media relations staffers who helped me click through the random lottery a few hundred times), and every team in the lottery would select Wall if given the opportunity to have the top pick in the draft, according to ESPN.

If the season ended today, the New Jersey Nets, with a 3-40 record, would have a 25.0 percent chance of getting the top pick. Minnesota has a 19.9 percent of acquiring the No. 1 pick.

What I found the most interesting is that the New Orleans Hornets, who at this point have only a 0.6 percent chance of winning the top pick, would select Wall. New Orleans already has a multiple NBA All-Star in its backcourt running the show in Chris Paul. Apparently, at least as ESPN sees it, Wall is talented enough to warrant a possible backcourt battle.

Freshman forward DeMarcus Cousins seemed to be a consensus lottery pick and junior forward Patrick Patterson frequently made the top 14.

This is only a mock lottery by ESPN and in no way will determine what happens June 24, but it's interesting to see no less because it's become without a doubt that Kentucky truly has potentially one of the all-time greats in its backcourt this season.

What has hapend to patrick paterson he is not even
showing up he has a lot of talent as we've seen the last two years were is he

okay... John Wall has not shown anything that any other team mate of his can do. They were talking about his shot on cbs!!! He doesn't really have one... instead of waiting until we get down and need some scoring... why don't he put some effort in to his game and do that the whole game???? And Patterson needs more touches... he shoots a better percentage than nearly all of his teammates.. pass him the ball!!!!!!!!!!!! Cousins and Patterson are the real players to watch... and sit Bledsoe down when he thinks he can dribble inside and draw a foul on every play!!!!!! He's out of control! Come on... they should have went to South Carolina and handled the pressure... they are way too talented to lose games to such teams. I hope to go they play on Saturday because Vanderbilt does not mess around. Come on UK!!!!!!!!!
