NYPost Weighs in on Draft - Monroe



Ny Post Article

WINNERS

PISTONS — Greg Monroe -- a 6-foot-11, 250-pounder who projects as Alonzo Mourning with a better offensive game — fell into general manager Joe Dumars’ lap with the seventh pick.

CELTICS — One-and-done Texas guard Avery Bradley might be the second-most talented backcourt player in the draft. Boston got him with the 19th pick.

KEVIN PRITCHARD — The former Portland general manager was fired by foolish owner Paul Allen. But Pritchard convinced Allen to let him run the Trail Blazers’ draft. He dumped Martell Webster, shed salary and got Nevada forward Luke Babbitt, Memphis guard Elliot Williams and his freedom.

LOSERS

JOHN CALIPARI — Kentucky set a record with five players chosen in the first round. Even with that kind of talent of the roster, Calipari could not coach the Wildcats to the NCAA title or even get to the Final Four.

KNICKS AND CAVS FANS — The Knicks don’t have the biggest check, and the Cavs might have to pay more to keep LeBron. The Knicks also drafted iffy Stanford prospect Landry Fields in the second round. This is how Tom Hanks felt in “Cast Away” — stranded.

BOBCATS — The only thing worse than doing poorly is doing nothing.

WARRIORS — With the 20-year-old Monroe on the board, Golden State took the 6-foot-10, 240-pound Ekpe Udoh, who is 23.

COLLEGE SENIORS — None was drafted until Clemson’s Trevor Booker at No. 23.

Stay Casual, my friends.
