Hey do you think that its a possibility that the Suns would pick Borchardt and play him at PF? San Antionio has proved that two 7 footers can be very deadly. What do you think?

Phoenix would be better off grabbing one of the top PFs (Gooden/Wilcox/Hilario/Stoudemire).

All they need is defense and rebounding, they don't need much more scoring help. They already have Steph, JJ, Marion.

Curtis Borchardt...

That may work but he would be a reach at 9. His stock has been dropping lately because he hasn't gotten to wok out for many teams and there are still questions about his feet. He also performed poorly at the Pre-Draft Camp Physical Testing. He ranked 74 out of 83. He ranked 57th in the bench press catagory where he had to bench press 185lbs as many times as he could and he could only do it 7 times. He had a 27inch vertical leap. In the 3/4 court sprint it took him 3.63 seconds, which was last place. His lane agility was 12.56 seconds. The Suns would be better off taking Nene Hilario(2nd in testing) if available or Amare Stoudemire(12th in testing).

Physical testing

Who was first in the testing? They'd have to be a pretty great athlete.

Curtis Borchartd is not going to be one of the next great centers or PF. He might be a good player that helps out, but he definitely won't be part of the next "Twin Towers." You need to be a good athlete to play a big position (PF,C). And clearly, he isn't that great of an athlete.

Suns

You're damn right the Suns will take Stoudemire. But, the Lakers will get Woods. Again, that's what I'll keep telling myself.:D

Amare Stoudemire...

Amare's agent has said that he has gotten promises that he will be top 12.

Stoudemire

He should have gotten promises. He's a great player. He should be getting promises that he'll be top 10. If the Suns want to take him, he should be getting promises that he'll be top 9. Yeah....:cool: :D :yes: :grinning: ;) :)

Its possible, but i doubt they would grab Borchardt with that high of a pick. Most likely they will pick, if still available, one of the players in the draft that has already proven himself as a power forward, preferably a good rebounder. I doubt Gooden will still be available, but if it happens that he does slip that far, Pheonix should definitly grab him.

BTW, your signature is hilarious -- What movie was that from?
