They said he is currently ranked #22 and they also said this is the weakest NBA draft in 20 years so that will be alot of borderline players motivation to make the jump to the pros. Oklahoma's Blake Griffin is exspected to be the #1 overall pick.

I think he will make a pretty good pro. He has the body but I am not sure if he is long enough. Is he a real 6 8" or a program 6'8"?

Well ill just say i am 5'8" and when i played sports in high school they listed me at 5'11".
So if that means anything i think he is on the small side of 6'8".
He needs to get into better shape because he isn't Charles Barkley if he wants to be a decent pro.

If he gets an outside game he will be a force to reckon with.

I've always seen Blair listed at 6'7", which I assume is legit.

He definitely has the talent to be a regular NBA player. He is very big, a very good athlete, and has a big heart. I like him as a player and a person, and I can't really fault him for going all-in and hiring an agent, but he was a little too cocky in his press conference for my liking.

He said is guaranteed to be chosen in the first round. I would like to know who made that guarantee.

But if anybody gets a good outside game they will be a force to rekon with. I think there was about 10 players in last years draft that are better than any in this years.

He probably will be but i know if i were running an NBA team i wouldn't take him to the 2nd round because i see him as too much of a risk.
