2008 NBA Draft

The 2008 NBA Draft Lottery is near. The draft predictions since my last blog about the draft have changed. Derrick Rose is now the top prospect in the NBA Draft since he dazzled the nation in his tournament performance. Michael Beasley is still a solid pick at the top 2 spots. OJ Mayo jumped from number 10 to number 3. The flamboyant USC Trojan got his hype back due to some lackluster performances from other prospects. One player who cracked the top 10 is LSU Freshman Anthony Randolph. He is an extremely versatile forward with great quickness and athleticism, although he needs to bulk up a bit for the NBA game.

Here is the list of the top ten according to NBADraft.net, as of May 12, 2008:
1. Derrick Rose 6-3 195 PG Memphis Fr.
2. Michael Beasley 6-9 235 SF K.St. Fr.
3. OJ Mayo 6-4 210 SG USC Fr.
4. Brook Lopez 7-0 260 C Stanford So.
5. Jerryd Bayless 6-3 182 SG Ariz. Fr.
6. Eric Gordon 6-4 220 SG Indiana Fr.
7. DeAndre Jordan 7-0 250 C TX A&M Fr.
8. Anthony Randolph 6-10 200 SF LSU Fr.
9. Danilo Gallinari 6-10 220 SF Italy 1988
10. Nicolas Batum 6-8 210 SG France 1988

Can't wait til the 2008 NBA Draft Lottery to determine who gets a crack at choosing either Rose or Beasley.
