2012 NBA Draft
Annual NBA Mock Draft
Here are the results from the 2012 NBA draft. There are a lot of good players out there from freshmen to senior and even a few from abroad. Plus, you can see how we did in our annual mock draft… hahahahahaha
1. New Orleans Hornets: Anthony Davis, PF, 19, 6-10, 220, Kentucky, Fresh.
The ultimate no-brainer. Davis could be a franchise player and will certainly become a dominant force on the defensive end. He’s also far more skilled on the offensive end than many realize. The Bobcats get a potential superstar and face/cornerstone of their franchise.
2. Charlotte Bobcats: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF: 18, 6-7, 228, Kentucky, Fresh.
The Cats took a great player with excellent motor who is an athletic freak and has excellent work ethic. So why did they wind up with a B-? MKG fills a need for the Bobcats, especially after the trade of Corey Maggette for Ben Gordon. But with limited ability to score on his own, and with so many needs, you have to wonder if a trade down wouldn’t have been better for the franchise.
3. Washington Wizards: Bradley Beal, SG, 18, 6-4, 201, Florida, Fresh.
Ideal fit alongside John Wall and a smooth wing who can make shots from the perimeter. Beal is solid in just about every phase of the game and will fill a major need for the Wizards and give the team a terrific young backcourt.
4. Cleveland Cavaliers: Dion Waiters, SG, 20, 6-4, 210, Syracuse, Soph.
Why? I mean, it’s fine, but… why? The Cavaliers are building a very good team behind Kyrie Irving and could have added Thomas Robinson or Harrison Barnes. But instead, they take Waiters, who did not start this season, who did not work out for teams, and who isn’t going to bring the polish they need beside Irving.
5. Sacramento Kings: Thomas Robinson, PF, 21, 6-9, 240, Kansas, Junior
T-Rob is a relentless rebounder who slid a few spots, but will give the Kings another force up front to pair with DeMarcus Cousins. Robinson is a man who can step in immediately and make an impact on the glass. This was a terrific get for Geoff Petrie, one of the best drafters in the NBA
