With the NBA half way through and the draft approaching in June many teams are looking for new players that can help improve their roster. One thing is for sure is that talent comes from all different players. In order for players to enter then draft they have to come from overseas or they have to be at least one year from high school. What if there was no age limit and players were allowed to enter the draft. Would players such as Stanley Johnson and Jahlil Okafor move up and surpass players such as Marcus Smart and Dante Exum? Or would teams not willing to take a risk on a high school kid. Here is a mock draft if high school players were incorporated into it.

College Basketball has just got interesting. The question is…Can these NBA Prospects put everything on line to make their dreams happen. There have been discussions about what NBA prospects are lacking and what they might need to do to help the future of the NBA. There has not just been a discussion about the rules in college basketball but also the idea of jumping to the NBA D-League to get the opportunity to earn money, while playing and finding a different way to the NBA. I actually agree with the proposed idea via Mark Cuban (Dallas Mavericks Owner). With the conference tournaments coming up, there are so many different things that these NBA Prospects can prove, Who’s willing to step up and be clutch.

Lately there has been a question on what the draft will look like for this year and the future. Many of the NBA legends have expressed their concerns, including Jerry West, who is known as Mr. NBA. Well, Mr. NBA described this generation of NBA Prospect talent as Poor. I’ve expressed this to others and I understand that many don’t agree but I agree with Mr. NBA. He has been behind some of the great Laker teams in history for years, going back to his playing days. He expresses how guys who are so young don’t have the opportunity to get their names branded in people’s minds. Therefore entering the NBA still means that they have to take 2 or 3 years to ready for the NBA, wasting time and money, when the league should be implementing guys who are well polished and ready to roll coming in. I have expressed my concern and I feel there should be a change and I know I have commented lately on the NBA Draft Mock Board that most people are used to seeing but this week and on, I will focus more on the Board of my own. Enjoy!

Embiid made that jump back to the top because he was able to show he could come back strong and help will his team to a win. He’s basically the #1 pick and I would be shocked to see anybody else take that spot. I definitely have to continue to keep my eye out because of the potential and the different guys that are in the draft. I definitely see this as a close call to the end depending on the need. It looks like the draft will be more guessing than anything this year.

With the NBA season half way done many teams are looking to the draft to revamp their roster. When it comes to the draft teams have a good idea who are going to be the top players and who are not. Though there have been a few players to sneak up on teams and make their way in to the lottery. Players such as Victor Oldadipo, Russell Westbrook and Damian Lillard have slipped up in the draft and have put their mark on not only their teams but also the entire league. With the upcoming draft many have declared that this is suppose to be one of the top drafts in recent years.
