BoSo’s Phreshtake NBA 2015 Draft Predictions

The NBA Draft is right around the corner. All these young men have been dreaming of this moment their whole lives. Each prospect has a unique story that has help to challenge and drive them. All the players they idolized are now people they will be playing with or competing against. The moment they all are about to experience will be something that maybe so surreal that sentences can’t be formulated. Dreams and hopes are the best tools of ambition. As you get closer to those dreams the reality of that fact is what we as fans get to witness on draft night!

Here are my predictions for the 2015 draft based on the best available or by team needs. As draft fans know one wild or unexpected pick can cause a domino effect that alters the whole draft so we will see how my projections coincide with what GM’s, owners, and coaching staffs decide as their best move for their franchise. I must say this year’s draft class is very deep and immense talent can be found in the first 20 picks as well as beyond as drafts in the past of shown as time has flown by. Often time a draft position alone can be the determining factor in what becomes of a draftees career. If Kwame Brown was taken 26th overall back in 2001 perhaps he would have worked harder instead of signing that big contract and wasting his career away. Here are the notable late Round 1st & 2nd Rounds Picks over the past 15 year: Draymond Green, Rajon Rondo, Kyle Lowry, Paul Milsap,Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, DeAndre Jordan, Kyle Korver, Goran Dragic, Marcin Gortat, David Lee, Marc Gasol, Nicolas Batum. Jeff Teague, Eric Bledsoe, Jimmy Butler, and Khris Middleton. -BoSo
