2013 NBA Draft LB Big Board: Alex Len at #7, Madness on Horizon

BELLY TEASE. - USA TODAY Sports

Top 7 is gone! Five names are added! Some are tough to pronounce!

And with the creaking of Alex Len's rusted ankles, we have completed the CHALK portion of our LB Big Board. Now, please keep all arms and legs inside the vehicle and brace yourselves for insanity.

Gleaning a strong 45% of the vote from the mighty contingent of Lentlemen who support him, the UMD big man took the 7th spot on the big board. I've consistently remained inconsistent of my feelings about Alex Len. That's the weird thing about this draft -- it feels like almost every player's floor and upside is crazy wide. Like you could tell me Tony Snell is the best player in the league in two years and I'd try to make a nose pun but ultimately fail and probably buy it.

Anyway.

We've added some guys because the people want guys and, no guise, guys they will get. Joining Shabazz Muhammad and CJ McCollum -- both at 20% in the last vote -- as well as Cody Zeller and Rudy Gobert will be a quadrangle of intrigue.

Michael Carter-Williams, a guy I've seen play more than anybody else on the draft board, still polarizes my left and right brain. I droll at the length. I love getting to the rim. But OH FUNKY BUTTLOVING can he not shoot at all. I contend that I've never seen him hit a foul shot.

Steven Adams will also get bowled in there to bogart some of the Zeller vote.

Sergey Karasev, Dario Saric, and Dennis Schroeder have the distinction of being fun to read about. Having never seen them ourselves, we must rely on Jan Vesely-esque videos and scouting reports from people we trust rather than, ya know, actually having an opinion. It's a tricky, hipsterlike task to pound the pavement for an international prospect, but I get as excited about a Tony Kukoc comparison as the next guy, so count me in for a few workouts.

Everybody get your roll on and vote for #8.

1. Nerlens Noel (47%)

2. Ben McLemore (49%)

3. Otto Porter (42%)

4. Victor Oladipo (59%)

5. Anthony Bennett (48%)

6. Trey Burke (46%)

7. Alex Len (45%)
