An Idea to Spice Up Our Draft Conversations

Hello fellow Celtics fans,

Over the past months we have been talking a lot about this coming NBA draft wherein we will be picking at the 6th & 17th spot. We have tackled a lot of points from players who we want the Celtics management to draft, to trading the pick and other very entertaining thoughts & ideas. Said discussions I believe have really brought us closer together as fans as evident of other long time fans such as me who are joining the discussions for the first time everyday.

I really wish that I can contribute more to the discussions about the draft but due to limited resources, time for research and first hand knowledge about the players in this year's draft I can only offer opinions based on what are already available on the web and in this blog site (I am not from the US and I do not have access to NCAA televised games & reliable internet).

We have had many ideas with regards to who we should draft assuming that the Celtics management choose to keep the picks. Each of us has our own indicators on our choices. For example, I personally prefer to draft any of Gordon (defense/ athletism), Nurkic (size) and Saric ("it" or winner mentality + shooting) at 6th & Anderson (passing, scoring) at 17th. I am basing my preference on second hand information and limited materials such as you tube videos and other articles on the web such as mock drafts. After reading some of the discussions in this blog today, I noticed that some of us are very high on some players because they have seen such players play firsthand or at least regularly while others expressed reluctance to some players since they know little about them. This kind of observation has made me thinking of proposing for a Celticsblog community information (i.e stats or personal observations) sharing for us to better evaluate each of the players which we want the Celtics management to draft. For example, a fellow Celtics fan who follows Saric in the Adriatic League can give us stats on how many close games did Cibona won because of how Saric made some clutch plays etc. In this way we can add more fun to the already fun discussions we are having. It could also bring out the hidden scout talents in us with the hope that Wyc and company are lurking around and take our information helpful.

What are your thoughts my fellow Celtics fans?
