I can't help but question some of the Mock Drafts posted on every site and in every publication imaginable. How do any of these educated guesses make their thoughts any more relevant then those of hardcore fans who watch all of the same games? I can be convinced that guys like Chad Ford and even Yahoo's Marc Spears; who have "sources" that prefer to remain anonymous; have some real insight into what teams are thinking, making their picks more accurate. At the same time those "sources" are feeding them all types of garbage that they have to sift through because the teams are more interested in misleading other franchises then making sure ESPN has accurate information.
I'll be rewarding the reader who posts their picks and comes "closest to the cup' in picking the hardest and most important selections. The most valuable selections in this challenge are the Warriors picks at 7 and 30 followed by the picks lower in the lottery since those once are harder to nail down. DraftExpress may have more resources but I'll put the knowledge of Warrior fans up against anyone without inside information.
Highest score gets a Trapped in Golden State T shirt and the title of "Best Mock Drafter Trapped in Golden State." which will buy you a pack of gum if you throw in a dollar of your own.
Test your knowledge against the "experts" and let everyone know what direction you want the Warriors to go June 28th and beyond.
Rules: Copy and paste the draft order into the comments and fill in your picks next to each team name.
2 points for nailing picks 2 and 3
5 points for nailing picks 4 through 6
7 points for nailing the Warriors pick at number 7
2 points for each pick 8-14
Mega number: Warriors pick at number 30 worth 15 points
10 points for calling any trades that happen (must be called before 6/28 and before any news breaks)
15 points for calling a Warriors trade
Funniest comments and best scenarios on realistic directions to go in the draft get extra points and could end up being the ultimate tie breaker.
Only one per person will be scored but if you tell me you want an updated version to be scored before 6/28 that is legal...
Thanks in advance for participating and I look forward to checking out your picks!
