Well, lets start from the top:
With the 1st pick in the NBA draft, The Toronto Raptors select Andrea Bargnani. Its a poorly kept secret that the Raptors new General Manager has a really heavy school girl’s crush on the Italian Bargnani. Prior to the lottery, there were also rumors going around that the Raptors were going to work with Barganani to spread rumors that he only intended to play for them, which they hoped would scare other teams away from drafting him. Now that they’re sitting in the #1 spot, they don’t have to play those types of games.
With the 2nd pick in the NBA draft the Chicago Bulls select Lamarcus Aldridge. The Bulls need an offensive minded big man to play alongside the defensive minded Tyson Chandler and Lamarcus is their guy. They pass on Tyrus Thomas, because pairing him with Chandler would give them two post players with absolutely no low post offensive game.
And now to the Bobcats, With the 3rd pick in the NBA daft the Bobcats select Rudy Gay. In most of the mock drafts on the net, they have the Bobcats drafting Adam Morrison. To put it simply, all of those mocks are wrong. Rudy Gay is the type of long, athletic, defensive minded wing player that Bernie Bickerstaff covets. There may be some trouble figuring out who is going to play the shooting guard spot between Gerald Wallace and Rudy, but that won’t stop Bickerstaff from drafting what he percieves as the best player regardless of the fact that its not a position of need.
See last years drafting of Sean May, despite the fact that he plays the same position of Emeka Okafor.
