He would have been top 5, probably even 3, last yr but went back to school because everyone thought the season was going to be cancelled. I love the pick, since again he wasn't supposed to even be available. Yes, he's a poor man's KD/TMac/ShardLewis, so what better place to be than backing up the real KD? KD can hopefully teach him a work ethic, and get him in some steakhouse, BBQ, etc. And being from Houston, Kendrick Perkins and he will have that in common.

The Thunder do mini camps on their own during the summer (spend a week in Kentucky working out, then go to Houston, then to LA, then to DC) , so getting into that will help him develop chemistry with the teammates on and off the court.

We missed Maynor A LOT this year. He's much more proven than you think, but the injury was a setback.

the obvious steal of the draft. he can go to OKC with no pressure to do anything and end up being special.

OKC on that SAS shit now, this team will be deadly(-er) next year.

I'd go:

Westbrook
Sefolosha
Durant
Jones III
Ibaka

Perhaps the longest and most athletic line up in NBA history.

This. Absolute thievery in its purest form. Best case scenario Boston lands a pivotal piece to the rebuild in Sullinger and a guy to replace Perks impact on the defensive end. Worst case scenario they've got a guy in Sullinger who can adequately spell guys like KG/whoever else and a 5 in Melo who might be enticing trade bait in a league thin with serviceable players at the center spot.

Great steal. Should fit in well with the Thunders game too. But let's not get ahead of ourselves too much people. He was drafted in the 20s after all...keep the pressure off him and wait and see how he turns out.

Wait I thought that's what GM's had issues with? The fact he was a four that wanted to play the 3. Unless I'm missing something I thought he lacked the shot that they had.

Awesome pick for OKC. Crazy the raw talent that team has.

Great players don't drop that far for no reason.

Blair is an extreme exception.
