I've been workin' on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I've been workin' on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Don't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Don't you hear the captain shouting
"Dinah, blow your horn?"
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Someone's in the kitchen, I know.
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o-o-o-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Strumming on the old banjo.

1st Round
#1 Los Angeles Clippers - Blake Griffin
Reason why - I cant believe i even am giving a reason for this. Its safe to say that not even the Clippers could mess this one up. Who knows what Blake will turn out to be in the NBA. Count on one thing though, he will be a Clipper.

Picks 2 - 30 shall be skipped due to the fact that it could very well be anybody.

2nd Round (i am only doing the picks that i find intresting)

#31 The Sacremento Kings - Austin Daye
Reason why- Austin may very well slip out of the 1st round, but has all the tools to be a good NBA player. Being the most talented left on the board, the Kings will take him.

#32 The Washington Wizards -Jermanie Taylor
Reason Why- Taylor was a beast in College. Just because you havent heard of him doesnt mean he isnt the best guard in the 2nd round. Give him 1 year to adjust to NBA play.

#33 The Portland Trail Blazers- Victor Claver
Reason Why- The Portland Trail Blazers want to look like the Spainish National Team. Other than that, no reason, beside the fact that Claver is gonna be a legit NBA player.

#34 The Denver Nuggets- Josh Heytvelt
Reason Why- Fits all of Denvers' needs. 2nd round pick with 1st round talent.

#35 The Detroit Pistons- I dont care
Reason Why- Detroit is such a mess, their 2nd round picks wouldnt be having a impact on this team, look for them to be out of the leauge in a few years.

#36 The Memphis Grizzlies- DeMarre Carrol
Reason why- He is good, the Grizzlies dont really need anything, just a random pick

#37 The San Antonio Spurs - Nick Calathes
Reason why- The Spurs need a 3rd point guard, who can double as being their 2nd. Parker gets injured so much, do you really trust Roger Mason to lone wolf the PG postion?

#38 The Portland Trail Blazers - Sergii Gladyr
Reason why- Joins the rest of Portlands' European talent. Marinates overseas for a couple years then comes to the states and makes a impact. Watch for this guy to show up in 2-3 years (if picked here) and turn some heads.

#39 The Detroit Pistons - see pick #35.

#40 The Charlotte Bobcats - Dionte Christmas
Reason why- honestly, i doubt Chritsmas will be here, but i want him on the Bobcats. We need a scorer, Terrence Williams is someone who can do everything, but is not a pure scorer. Christmas is.

#41 The Milwaukee Bucks - Jodie Meeks
Reason why - With Micheal Redd wearing a suit more during a typical NBA season then a Bucks jersey, Milwaukee must act. So they will take Meeks.

#42 The Los Angles Lakers - Danny Green
Reason why- insurance if Ariza doesnt come back. Give Danny 4 years, he will be just as good.

#43 The Miami Heat - Patty Mills
Reason why- Ricky Rubio aint walking through that door.

#44 The Detroit Pistons - reference pick #39

#45 The Minnesota Timberwolves - Darren Collison
Reason why- Already pronounced 'winners of the draft' by the mainstream media, the Wolves get another Point Guard who was well seasoned in the College game.

#46 The Cleveland Cavilers - Jeff Pendergraph
Reason why- They got Shaq, so i am guessing they will be drafting a guard with their first round pick, then getting Pendergraph here. I have no idea why Jeff isnt a top 30 pick, he is actually better then most Power Forwards i have seen in mock drafts that are going in the top 20.

#47 The Minnesota Timberwolves- Jeff Adrien
Reason why- The Wolves can always use another front court player, as injuries are always a problem in Minny. Adrien did well in the NCAA tournment this year, and that could be a clear indication he is ready for the NBA.

#48 The Phoneix Suns- Some random guy
Reason why- trying to predict what Steve Kerr is going to do is impossible. His brain is a form of absract art nobody can replicate. Why should i even bother?

#49 The Atlanta Hawks - Tyrese Rice
Reason why- The point guard slot is always a problem for the Hawks. Maybe Rice, a established college player, can be part of the solution.

#50 The Utah Jazz- Jon Brockman
Reason why- when Paul Milsap and Carlos Boozer walk out this off season, Utah will already be somewhat equipt to fill in the holes.

#51 The San Antonio Spurs- Robert Dozier
Reason why- they need a front court player, so i gave it to them. Dozier is above solid, but cannot play offense worth shit.

#52 The Indiana Pacers- Nando De Colo

#53 The San Antonio Spurs- Marcus Thorton
Reason why- Really good scorer. The Spurs get a steal, at #53 .

#54 The Charlotte Bobcats- Dante Cunningham
Reason why- Good college career, a Larry Brown player. I would be happy...

#55 The Portland Trail Blazers- Courtney Fells
Reason why- I cant let NCSUs' semi-finest not get drafted!

#56 - #60 are just wastes of time, if it is really a big deal: Chris Johnson, Leo Lyons, Sergio Llull, Welsey Matthews and Terrel Harris are yours to choose from.

Where ma dogz at!

Moose said...

BETCATS, dude, why didn't you give us your first round picks? I mean, yeah, you said that they could be anyone, and you're right, they can. But we still want your take on it, man. But for the second round you did well, I guess. I don't know enough about any of the second round picks to judge you critically.

Jameyb said...

Very cool and offbeat-a mock draft of the 2nd round..Your boys just made a great pick w/Henderson-he has the blood of a Celtic and he's going to be a good player. I hope Tyrese Rice is around at 58 when my boys pick.

First thought it was the lyrics to Bart Simpson singing John Henry was a Steel Drivin Man, which are awesome, but Workin on the Railroad works too. Coach LB got booed on mention by Stu-T-Mac lazy eye-"Holla @ a player when you see him the streets"Scott. GSDUBZ got booed when Curry went, but not when Jennings could have gone to em. I dunno with Dell Curry Jr. His shot release looks slow (unlike Dell) + my GSW has Morrow 47% and AzuBazookie 45% 3pt killers already. And might bring in Amare no D, Noooo! (Stereotype from always, offensive players only going to the Warriors to never play D, then demand $15 mil contracts)

They almost got reverse(vampire) Turiaf in Jordan Hill tho. That might have worked.

I know a Dookie wasn't BETcats ideal 1st overall but like a silver medal to who he wanted. Terrence Will right? And another pops from the NBA who did work in the NBA ("Leeeg Pass"). He has to keep the bald dome though then grow the Arenas sharpie beard off the adidas commercials, Lang said it was "Junkyard dog" the wrestler like. Then wear a Dookie rope gold chain too.

Earl Clark looked dope on the highlights. Baron Davis Jr. bearded Harden was a shock so high and nobody knows WTF the L-Wolves are doing, except pissin off Max Air/Myles Brown.

Without bean counting it, I think BET got 95% of his 2nd round dudes correct while nobody else even did that far I'm guessing, so it don't matter who took who the exact team order. BET FTW.

BET said...

Blinguo- i had the orginal pre-trade 2nd round order.

Moose- i would have had Rubio going 5th if i did

Jameyb- yeah, thanks.

BET said...

The overhanging theme of the draft:
Stuart Scotts' ebonics did NOT amuse me.

Moose said...

Tyrese Rice didn't get picked. Wish the Celtics had acted there; maybe we'll sign him as an undrafted FA.

Moose said...

You got Meeks right.

Jameyb said...

I'm sure Ty Rice, Jeff Adrien and a few others who didn't get drafted will be invited to a Summer League. They are too talented not too. Either that, or Europe/Greece is always looking for American players.

Moose said...

Or the Celtics! Jamey, Adrien would be a good addition to Boston in the long run. The LONG RUN.

Jameyb said...

update: Jeff Adrien and Tyrese Rice both invited to Las Vegas Summer League-I think Rice with the Wiz, not sure about Adrien.
