2011 NBA Mock Draft - Guest Mocks







We mentioned last week that we were looking for “Guest Mocks”. Well today, we are posting one from a reader named, Luke A. He is from MN and wanted to share what he thinks, is a great mock. If you want your mock posted, remember to email sportstearsinourbeers@yahoo.com and we will get it up on the site.





Luke’s Mock –



1. Cleveland – Kyrie Irving (duh)

2. MinnesotaDerrick Williams (Al Harrington 2.0 - or revolutionary inside outside scoring force?)

3. UtahEnes Kanter (I wish he was a little bit taller…I see similarities to Nene in his game)

4. ClevelandJonas Valanciunas (only downside is the tribulations of European contract buyouts, size plus motor will complement JJ Hickson well)

5. TorontoBismack Biyombo (will he be the creature we saw at the Nike Summit – or more like the role player he has been in Europe?)

6. Washington – Jan Vesely (potential to be a great scorer on John Wall’s wing)

7. SacramentoBrandon Knight (latest product of Coach Cal’s NBA PG factory – moves Tyreke to the SG)

8. DetroitKawhi Leonard (Joe Dumars’ type of player – will replace Prince)

9. CharlotteTristan Thompson (seems underrated – not a tremendous ceiling, but should be very solid)

10. MilwaukeeAlec Burkes (will fit well between Jennings and Luc Richard)

11. Golden StateChris Singleton (if ever a team needed a good defensive player…)

12. Utah Jazz – Kemba Walker (Devin Harris insurance)

13. PhoenixJordan Hamilton (Vince Carter replacement/Grant Hill insurance)

14. Houston – Klay Thompson (lots of upside, NBA DNA)

15. IndianaMarshon Brooks (could be the steal of the draft)

16. PhiladelphiaJimmer Fredette (someone has to take this dud in the making – I predict guard version of Adam Morrison)

17. New YorkKenneth Fareid (brings a much needed defensive attitude to NYK, they’re lucky if he falls this far)

18. Washington – Marcus Morris (a nice piece at a position of need)

19. Charlotte – Tobias Harris (SF to pair with Thompson)

20. MinnesotaNikola Vucevic (decent size, solid skill set)

21. PortlandDonatas Motiejunas (interesting Euro because he is more proven than potential – should be average/solid rotational big with legit size)

22. DenverMarkieff Morris (front court depth)

23. Houston – Charles Jenkins (small school scoring machine)

24. Oklahoma CityKyle Singler (makes a good bench better)

25. Boston – Trey Thompkins (definitely big enough to fill the void left in the wake of Doofus Danny’s moronic trading of Perk, maybe too big?)

26. Dallas – Tyler Honeycutt (potential to replace Marion and Butler down the road)

27. New JerseyJustin Harper (is he a 3 or a 4?)

28. Chicago – Josh Selby (he had lottery praise early in the year, great talent in the vein of a diet Monta Ellis, if he panned out, he could be an excellent sidekick to the MVP in the Bulls backcourt)

29. San AntonioNikola Mirotic (should fit nicely behind Richard Jefferson)

30. Chicago – Nolan Smith (Jay Williams, Chris Duhon … I see the pattern)
