I wanted to write about Ian Thomsen yesterday but he does not qualify as a celebrity. For those of you not into basketball, I'm sorry you probably won't like this post. Whatever, I hate you all anyways.
According to his biography
Ian is is one of SI's top basketball scribes. Along with penning the Inside the NBA column for SI, Thomsen is a frequent contributor to SI.com. And is absolutely horrid. I encourage you to look at his mock draft
He has Morrison going 8. Going 8?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Is he insane. NO way he falls past four even if someone has to trade up to get him there.
The NBA draft is one of my favorite times of years. I love reading the rumors and trying to come up with my own trades. For a couple weeks every rumor I make up is just as good as the ones made up in the paper. Have you ever noticed that draft rumors never come true? The trades always come out of left field.
Anyways, writers like Thomson ruin it for me. Their crap isn't even believable.
Ian Thomson: I hate you.
PS. for anyone who cares, I predict the draft to go as follows (trades will happen rendering this inaccurate)
1.TOR-Bargani, 2.CHI-Aldrigde, 3.CHA-Roy, 4. POR-Morrison, 5. ATL-S.Williams, 6. MIN-Gay, 7. BOS-Thomas, 8. HOU-Foye, 9. GS-Simmons, 10. SEA-O'Bryant, 11.ORL- Brewer, 12. NO-Carney 13. PHI-M. Williams, 14. Utah- Armstrong
I feel pretty good about most of these picks except Utah. For some reason I can't remember reading much about them except for the fact that they liked Sene. I doubt they will draft Sene and Armstrong will probably be the best big man on the board left. Also, look for Phoenix (if they keep their current picks) to grab Quincy Douby. He would be an unbelieveable fit on that team.
And my draft rumor that I am making up today that will not come true, but I wish it would. Dalembert + Korver + 13th Pick for Marion + 27th pick. Then Iverson in a sign and trade for Harrington. Leaves a sixers starting lined up of drafted PG, Igoudala, Harrington, Marion, Hunter with CWebb coming off the bench so he can regulate his minutes.
Sorry for the sports post. I know there are a billion blogs writing them. Back to regular hate tomw.
