Post Lottery Mock Drafts Begin

Will Fab be fabulous? How fast would you get sick of those puns?

Some of the mock drafts are still focused on the lottery picks, but some are going out to the end of the first round. Sam Amick picks a couple of interesting choices for the Celtics.

Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist lead way - Sam Amick - SI.com

21 - Fab Melo: Big men tend to crawl up teams' boards as draft day nears, and Melo could be a prime candidate. His size and defensive instincts are legitimate, even if his offensive game is nearly nonexistent. The Celtics aren't nearly as formidable in the frontcourt as they used to be and could use a player like Melo.

22 - Royce White: The well-chronicled anxiety disorder that has hurt White's stock is a real factor, but it will be interesting to see if he can dispel some of those concerns during workouts and interviews with teams at the draft combine. There aren't many players with his all-around skill set.

I can't decide if I'm excited or scared to death of both of these guys.

And that's about all I can handle about the offseason right now. Bring on Game 3!
