2002 NBA Draft Sleeper...

The sleeper of the draft would have to be Lubos Barton. He is one of the best shooters in the draft. He knows the game and he is a senior so is ready to contribute right away. He also has said he would be willing to spend 1 or 2 years in Europe after being drafted to further develop his game.

Well, I am not too confident on how high Kareem Rush will be drafted...but at this point I am guessing somewhere between 15-20. If he goes that low, he will be the steal of the draft. He is a sweet shooting, quick SG that knows how to score. On the Rockets official site, at least for a little while, they had clips of workout videos of Kareem Rush and Caron Butler. In it they showed some shooting clips and some post up clips, etc. Watching the 5 minutes or so of video, Kareem Rush did not miss a shot. The guy was just phenominal.

I am really hoping he falls to the New Orleans Hornets at #17. I think he is going to be a solid player!

I have to go with Frank Williams -- Some other late picks that could have a big impact would have to be Nachbar - maybe Jiri Welsh, and i can see Steve Logan developing into a pretty good PG. But the reason I think Williams will be the steal of the draft is mostly because of his unselfishness and his natural ability to get the ball where it needs to go. Those kind of players succede in the NBA, and I don't think this will be an exception.

Casey Jaccobsen.
Anybody who followed Stanford will tell you how valuable and talented this guy is. Excellent shooter and team leader. He was Stanford's best player in the past couple years. He was more valuable to the team than Jason Collins, Jarron Collins, Curtis Borchardt, and Mark Madsen.

What I said about Jacobsen can also be said about Juan Dixon. These guys are leaders who try their absolute hardest every night. Their efforts will pay off and show us it's not all about size and speed, rather the desire to win.

Great analysis. :rolleyes:

Anyway I'm hoping that Dan Dickau will be a steal, because he is expected to be taken by the Raptors! :D
I like Dickau and think that he could be a huge steal. :yes:

I read that there are questions about Ely's love for the game.

Not a steal by any means but since Dikau got traded to the pitiful Hornets he's at least showing he can play in this league, he's done pretty well, has a decent shot and can get assists, he's slow but I've actually seen worse.
