Just for the Record: NBA Draft (2009)

UConn's Stanley Robinson will be the best player out of this year's NCAA class. My ideal draft order would be this:

1. UConn's Stanley Robinson (Update: he hasn't declared for this year's draft.)
2. Spain's Ricky Rubio (assuming he declares for the draft)
3. Carolina's Ty Lawson
4. Oklahoma's Blake Griffin

Ty Lawson is a wild card. He obviously carried Carolina to the championship, but it's hard to predict PG success based on college play. Just look at UConn's Khalid El-Amin and MSU's Mateen Cleaves. At the same time, he reminds me a little of Orlando's Jameer Nelson.

I am looking forward to seeing Blake Griffin's brother develop--he may become even better than his brother.

By the way, am I the only one who thinks DeJuan Blair might be the second coming of Robert “Tractor” Traylor?
