Mocking the draft: Hoops writers style

6 Jun

With the NBA Draft right around the corner, I thought it was a good time to roll out a mock draft from those that cover college basketball.

Meet the mockers:

#Dunkage: Jabari Parker

13 May

Do you know the name Jabari Parker? Apparently you should. He is the newly crowned No. 1 player in the class of 2013. The 6-foot-7 forward from Chicago (Ill.) Chicago sits atop the freshest rankings from Scout.com.

From what I have seen (and only from tape), I like Aaron Gordon from California (MUST WATCH HIGHLIGHTS). He’s a cut above the rest when it comes to athleticism. Being 6-foot-7 is what probably has him slotted at No. 6 overall. From a long term perspective, Nerlens Noel could be the No. 1 guy a year from now. He’s 6-foot-10, from Everett (Mass.) High School and was great this spring, according to the .com analysts.

Still plenty of time for these young guys to play it out. Until then, enjoy Parker ruining a poor tall kid’s weekend in Fort Wayne, Indiana from last week.
