    Why Didn’t OKC Pick Plumlee Instead Of Steven Adams? There are a number of other Bigs that are better and were still on the board:
    Mason Plumlee
    Kelly Olynyk
    Gorgui Dieng

    Any of these players are better than Adams, smh.

    >:( i’m mad

    Time To Play NBA Mock Draft 4.0? Time for another round of a Mock Draft since now it’s only 4 days away

    Again only the lottery teams; Wednesday I’ll think about doing all 30 but here are the other 3 Ive done:




    Here we go:

    1. Cavs- Nerlens Noel: Even with his knee injury looks to be the the first pick overall. Has good size and is a good defender and shot blocker. Offensive skills very limited but if worked hard on that would be a nice fit with Waiters and Irving

    Magic- A go to guy needed here; Jameer Nelson era is over so Trey Burke seems like a good replacement

    Wizards: void at SF, help wanted so Washington should get Otto Porter here

    Bobcats: Any help needed with Charlotte at this point and they’ll be happy to take big man Alex Len here as the rebuilding process continues

    5. Suns: Big man needed but ive heard the Suns dont like Anthony Bennett very much and will be happy to have Ben Mclemore fall to them

    6. Pelicans: None of the players they wanted are available anymore so the next best option is to go with Victor Oladipo here even though N.O probably needs a PG

    7. Kings- Heard Sacramento likes Michael Carter Williams here so it makes sense they draft him. One thought tho dont the Kings already have Issiah Thomas as their future PG?

    8. Pistons- scoring help needed and a good option would be CJ McCollum here and have hom or Brandon Knight slide to the 2 position

    9. T-Wolves: Scoring also needed with Minnesota so why not Kentavious Caldwell-Pope here who can score in bunches

    10. Blazers; Since both CJ and Kentavious are off the board their best option is to strengthen their bench and Anthony Bennett has fallen so far his free fall ends here

    11. Sixers: Once again Andrew Bynum was a bust in Philedelphia so to make up for lost time Steven Adams seems like a nice fit here. A big man who is athletic but very raw offensively

    12. Thunder: Broken record I feel like again but Kendrick Perkins was non existent in the playoffs so they’re gonna need to replace him. Cody Zeller goes here

    13. Mavs: Have no clue what to do here since Dallas is desperate to trade out of this spot to get some more cap space but I guess Kelly Olynyk goes here with no better option

    14. Jazz: I think we all know what Utah needs and its a glaring one too. PG has been needed ever since Deron Williams was traded to NJ and so its finally time to fill that gap. Shane Larkin was impressive with his work out in Utah and rumors say they are targeting him at 14. Athletic guard who can shoot and distribute the ball pretty well. Size may play a factor though as Larkin only stands 5’11

    So thoughts overall? Good? Bad? Awful? Great? Thoughts and opinions always appreciated :p

    Should The Sixers Draft Mason Plumlee At No. 11? He’d most certainly fill a need at the big man position, though we still don’t know what we have in Arnett Moultrie due to Doug Collins being inpatient and not giving him enough minutes. Mason Plumlee, brother of Miles Plumlee who currently plays for the Indiana Pacers would bring a huge explosion to this Sixers offense regardless of who the head coach is. The guy’s an athletic freak and his dunks alone would send a shock throughout the whole arena. It seems Kelly Olynyk would be nothing more than another version of Spencer Hawes at center and really wouldn’t make much sense. Does it really makes sense to have an almost identical copy of a player you already have?

    Plumlee has averaged 17.1 Points Per Game, 9.9 Rebounds, and 1.4 in Blocks. Plenty that can be worked on, but there’s no denying this guy will kill it on the offensive side of the ball. He has the physical tools, he has an NBA Ready body at 6′ 11.5″ at 240 pounds, freakish athlete and jumper for his frame and position, runs the floor well with great energy and making strong finishes at the rim. With Plumlee, they could easily plug him in at Center and plug Moultrie in at power forward. Either way he gives you versatility at power forward and center.

    That would make a good frontcourt in my eyes. He relies heavily on athleticism and is excellent at rebounding the ball. Which is what the Sixers may need, I can’t imagine having to rely on Hawes to play defense and collect rebounds. Makes me kind of miss Nikola Vucevic on the night he grabbed for eighteen rebounds while Hawes only grabbed for one. With Plumlee, I doubt he would get beat out like that, but you need more than athleticism. Yes, athleticism is a nice tool to have but you will need to learn techniques to succeed in this league.

    I also considered Cody Zeller as another option at big man as well. Yes, he’s scouted to be better and have a more successful career than both his brothers, and he’s offensively gifted. Same goes for Olynyk, but they won’t cut it on defense. Olynyk is more of a replica of Hawes than Zeller is. Then again, the problem with Plumlee is, he’s not a threat in terms of a shooter. He mostly get’s his points from inside under the bucket and dunking. But if you’re to draft a big man with physicality, explosiveness, and athleticism, Plumlee may be your guy at No. 11.

      Basically i think the sixers drafting any big man would be a huge upgrade our team is ver good we just don’t have a solid big man hopefully if bynum stops being a nut he can fill that void and well be a contender
