Chuck vs. Shaq, just like last year. Mock your drafts. I'll go first. I can't recall if they did a snake draft last year or just 1-2 repeated, but I'll mock a snake. I'll admit after about the first ten players I stopped caring.

Team 1 - Kyrie Irving (Round 1, Pick 1)
Team 1 - Anthony Davis (2-2)
Team 1 - Chandler Parsons (3-1)
Team 1 - Nikola Vucevic (4-2)
Team 1 - Kawhi Leonard (5-1)
Team 1 - Kemba Walker (6-2)
Team 1 - Tyler Zeller (7-1)
Team 1 - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (8-2)
Team 1 - Brandon Knight (9-1)

Team 2 - Damian Lillard (Round 1, Pick 2)
Team 2 - Klay Thompson (2-1)
Team 2 - Andre Drummond (3-2)
Team 2 - Alexey Shved (4-1)
Team 2 - Kenneth Faried (5-2)
Team 2 - Harrison Barnes (6-1)
Team 2 - Tristan Thompson (7-2)
Team 2 - Dion Waiters (8-1)
Team 2 - Bradley Beal (9-2)

Re: Rising Stars Challenge Mock Draft

Kyrie is going 1st, and if you are the 2nd team you wait to take Lillard. Grab Anthony Davis, and get Lillard in the 2nd round. They could draft two PG's, but why?

Re: Rising Stars Challenge Mock Draft

I would take Davis and Drummond if I went 2nd.

Doubt whoever goes 1st takes 2 PGs. Though they could I guess....

Re: Rising Stars Challenge Mock Draft

Kyrie won't play much because he's in the all-star game. Can't take him first.

The way I did it, I took Lillard and Thompson back-to-back as Team 2, mainly b/c the PG drop-off after Lillard is high, whereas after Davis, you still have Drummond and Vucevic who can fill the position.

If you're in the all-star game, you should take an automatic pass on this game. Also, I think Kidd-Gilchrist is going to be a scratch after his recent head injury.

Re: Rising Stars Challenge Mock Draft

Shaq and Chuck did their draft (not a snake, a 1-2), and here are the results.

Quote:
#teamShaq

Damian Lillard (Portland)
Kyrie Irving (Cleveland)
Andre Drummond (Detroit)
Klay Thompson (Golden State)
Harrison Barnes (Golden State)
Chandler Parsons (Houston)
Dion Waiters (Cleveland)
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Charlotte)
Tyler Zeller (Cleveland)
Kemba Walker (Charlotte)
Quote:
#teamChuck

Anthony Davis (New Orleans)
Kenneth Faried (Denver)
Kawhi Leonard (San Antonio)
Bradley Beal (Washington)
Ricky Rubio (Minnesota)
Tristan Thompson (Cleveland)
Nikola Vucevic (Orlando)
Brandon Knight (Detroit)
Isaiah Thomas (Sacramento)
Alexey Shved (Minnesota)
Team Shaq is going to run away w/ this one. I mean, Damian/Kyrie/Klay/Chandler/Drummond-Zeller, c'mon! Chuck's first two picks were defensive players, in a game that most likely won't feature any defense. Shaq has at least 4-5 scorer's better than Chuck's best scorer.

Drummond's hurt, won't be playing in the game.

Re: Rising Stars Challenge Mock Draft

That's probably Team Shaq's only weakness, a lack of bigs, but I still think the remaining talent is so overwhelming it won't matter. Just stick in Zeller to clean up the boards when the rest of the team is done shooting.
