NBA Draft

On June 28, 2006, in General, by Neil Stevens

Well, the NBA Draft was today. The Lakers picked, to the surprise of many, a 6’2″ guard out of UCLA. The conventional wisdom is that “Phil Jackson likes big guards” because they’re more interchangeable in the triangle offense. Smush is surely out the door, thankfully after his regular season inconsistency and playoff collapse.

In the second round they went for a center out of Senegal. My guess is he’s a longshot gamble in a weak draft. We’ll see, I guess, who will be playing once the season starts with the new ball.
