This is a draft-week tradition at Liberty Ballers. We talk ad nasuem, about the first round prospects, but the second round prospects need love too. The tradition is: everyone who choses to participate, will select one second round prospect who they think will be a steal in this year's draft. As in, when we look back in three years we say things like "Holy hell, how did Lou Williams go in the second round?!"
Same deal this year. The rules are as follows: pick ONE player – only one – that you want to 'pimp' to the masses. The player MUST BE mocked outside the top 30 on BOTH Draft Express and ESPN's latest mock draft.
I could take the easy route and go with Doron Lamb, but I'll take a ride with the sleepier sleeper – like Snorlax sleepy – Darius Johnson-Odom. This is a guy I've been on for a month or two now, and hope the Sixers take him in the second round.
This is always fun, but should be even more enjoyable this year, because the Sixers have two second rounders. Go ahead, chose your prospect. Keep in mind, these are forever-archived. Just for funsises, let us see what Mike had to say about Craig Brackins in 2010:
He's got a boatload of talent and could provide great value later on if we can scoop him up.
RELEASE THE BRACKINS!
