Re: 2012 NBA Draft

mista, he can be a distributor, but that isn't what makes him special. He wouldn't be an nba level distributor. He is special for the big moment. Can he be good enough to be on the floor for the big moment? Can he be good enough to play 30 minutes in the NBA?

Edit: you must not have been talking to me. My post never suggested that premise. Sorry mista.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

No clue what the rest of the "mock draft" looks like but the newest ESPN draft has Johnson #49 to the Orlando Magic.

They got a brand new GM who fired all the scouts yesterday, so who knows. I'd be surprised if Tu or CJ get in.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

Draft Express is the only mock I look at. They have Nicholson going to Cleveland at 24, and Tu Holloway going with the final pick of the second round to the Lakers. No other A10 players.

Pictures of the interior of your college arena are vital as well.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

It would be good for the A10 to get as many draft picks/roster pick ups as possible to help our recruiting efforts against the other conferences.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

From an SI.com article:

Andrew Nicholson, 6-9 forward, St. Bonaventure: "He puts up decent numbers, but he's not a terrific athlete. Somebody is going to be really pleased with this kid. He's got a 7-3 wingspan. He just has a knack for putting the ball in the basket, and that's hard to teach. Reminds me of Paul Millsap."

Tu Holloway, 6-foot guard, Xavier: "He probably goes undrafted, maybe the end of the second round. I just don't know what he does."

If Nicholson had Chris Johnson's arms, he would dominate. I'm talking about having Chris Johnson's arms in addition to his current set of arms.

That would be one hell of a wingspan.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

there is no chance that he is drafted but Outerbridge as well as former URI star Delroy James (not this year's draft class) have had multiple workouts with teams. Outerbridge worked out twice for the Celtics.


As a Celtics fan I would love for the C's to draft Nicholson Thursday night. He can learn a lot from Garnett before he takes over for him.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

I would be shocked if AN made it to a team picking behind the Celtics.

If they only had either the 21st or 22nd pick I could see it happen maybe...but with having both I really don't see how they could pass him up if he makes it that far.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

It looks like the C's are enamored with Royce White and would take a flyer on Sullinger even with his recent medicals. But AN would be next on their list. So if White or Sullinger gets taken before Boston's picks I would be fairly certain AN will go by #22 at the latest.

Of course, watch Danny Ainge draft some Euro guy at #21 and screw everything up...

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

OK, heading off to Newark. First stop, the Brick City Bar & Grill for a pre-draft Bona get together, then across the street to the Rock for the draft. I'll be the guy in the brown shirt.

Re: 2012 NBA Draft

Congratulations to Andrew Nicholson who went 19th to the Orlando Magic. I hate the Magic, but it will be cool to see him playing with another A10er in Jameer Nelson.
