With the sucess of Gordon this year, I think we oughta continue on the Indiana route and take Kyle Taber from IU. He's done nothing but improve every year. At his current pace, he could be an all-star at some point.

The Los Angeles Slippers will find a way to screw this up too. How many #1 picks have they had that haven't panned out over the years?

The first week of the season Blake will twist his ankle or Davis will step on it. He will go on the DL. Clippers will sign some flake to a 10 day contract. Griffin will miss 2 months of the season. 4 more Clippers will go onto the DL for phantom injuries and then spend 6 weeks rehabbing. Blake will come back, strain something, MRI will reveal tear in some ligament somewhere in his body. Will miss the rest of the season.

Paul, that's ANOTHER reason to draft Kyle Taber. He can play some back-up point guard too. He's 6'8"--think Magic Johnson! Go CLIPPERS! DRAFT TABER!!!!

I'm not sure if I agree about the dog-poo amd that they will suck. Draft Kyle Taber and we're talking playoffs--maybe championship!!!
