The 2013 NBA draft is tonight and one thing is certain that we don’t know confidently who will be the number one pick this is shaping up to be a crazy draft night in New York what more drama do you want? The Cleveland Cavaliers have the first pick and there are rumors speculating that they might trade their draft pick to get a young vertan player out of a trade with a team so stay tuned to that storyline but I doubt it will happen.
In my opinion I believe six players can validate their case on why they should be the number one pick. Everybody believe that Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel will be selected as the first pick which I think he will be but I won’t be shock if he doesn’t get pick number one because how his torn ACL will hold up once he comes back to the court in like late November. Ben McLemore out of Kansas a player who I like is probably the best player in this years draft with his great shooting from behind the arc and his ability to get to the rim. Victor Oladipo out of Indiana is a versatile player who reminds me of Tony Allen from the Memphis Grizzles with his great defense I think he will be able to contribute for a team right away.
Other players I believe will make a immediate impact on teams is Georgetown Otto Porter Jr, Michigan Trey Bruke, Maryland Alex Henn and Syracuse Michael Carter Williams. All these players down the road can potential be all star players but it will take time of course.
My prediction is that if the Cavs don’t trade their pick they will draft Nerlens Noel with the first pick but it’s not a obvious lock. The draft will take place tonight on ESPN at 7:30pm from Brooklyn, NY.
