NBA Mock Draft and NBA Comparisons


1. Minnesota Karl Anthony Towns
Kentucky | NBA comparison: Andrew Bogut / Vlade Divac
||| Towns has the skill set down low similar to Divac and is a defensive presence like Bogut.  Pick could be Okafor too but the Wolves get a big man to replace Love and run the show in Minnesota.

2. Lakers Jahlil Okafor
Duke | NBA comparison: More athletic Al Jefferson
||| He is huge like Al Jefferson but is defenitely more athletic and explosive but he has the footwork and can move people around like Big Al.  LA gets a potential franchise player here and pair him with Randle and if the Lakers get Westbrook in free agency next year, look out.

3. 76er's D'Angelo Russel
Thee Ohio St. | NBA comparison: Brandon Roy
||| He was terrific as a freshman and put up probably the best numbers in this years freshman class at 19 points per game.  He will be a combo guard at the next level. Hopefully the 76ers find their PG for the future here which apparently wasn't MCW.

4. Knicks Emmanuel Mudiay
China, Congo | NBA comparison: John Wall
||| Super athlete and scorer and could possibly end up being the best player in this draft.  The Knicks could end up getting really lucky and get a franchise player here and really the Knicks need to address every position right now except SF.

5. Magic Justice Winslow
Duke | NBA comparison: Wilson Chandler
||| Some people compare him to Harden but I think Wilson Chandler is more accurate but he will probably end up getting a chance with the ball in his hand more than Chandler does.  Orlando will probably need a SF as Harris will likely sign a big deal with the Knicks or Lakers or someone.

6. Kings Willie Trill Cauley Stein
Kentucky | NBA comparison: Tyson Chandler
||| Super athletic 7 footer who is a shot blocker rebounder with not much of an offensive game, although I hear he is working on his mid range game and that could make him an All Star if he consistently hits that.  The Kings have needed a C who can block shots forever to pair with Cousins who could move to PF and this could put the Kings in the Playoffs.

7. Nuggets Mario Hezonja
Barcelona, Croatia | NBA comparison: Demare Carrol
||| He is white so everyone thinks he should be compared to a white guy (Rex Chapman) but I like the Carrol comparison but Mario is probably a better shooter.  He is also really athletic and the Nuggets are in rebuild mode and the Nuggets could load up on white foreign guys: Nurkik, Gallinari, Jokic

8. Pistons Stanley Johnson
Arizona | NBA comparison: Ron Artest
||| Not as athletic as you would think but he is a big and strong SF/SG like Artest and some people compare him to Kawaii but he isn't that long I don't think.  The Pistons have a nice PG and PF and C but a solid wing player is desired.

9. Hornets Kristaps Porzingis
Sevilla, Latvia | NBA comparison: Pau Gasol
||| This is really a best player available pick as some mocks have him at #5 but I think Stein is a better prospect and the Nugs and Pistons don't really need a center. He is a great shooter and can run the floor probably better than Gasol.

10. Heat Kelly Oubre
Kansas | NBA comparison: Aaron Afflalo
||| This is a stretch here as some have him going late teens but I think the combine workouts will help him and he is a good athlete who maybe should have stayed another year at KU, he only averaged 8 ppg.  The Heat need a solid wing to back up Wade and Deng, so either pick him or Decker or Booker.

Giannis has tons of potential and is still one of the youngest NBA players who has the tools to become an All Star caliber player.

K.J. McDaniels All 42 Dunks Full Highlights (2014-2015 Season Dunkilation)

KJ Mcdaniels had a surprising rookie year and the 76ers ended up trading him to Houston after he signed just a one year deal which looked like a good move on his part.  One of the dunks of the year at 15 seconds but I think it was overlooked at the end of the year because it happened so early on.
