Default RidiculousUpside

Hey Guys,
I'm working on some posts over at RidiculousUpside.com that are looking at possible guys in the player pool for Friday's draft. You guys should check it out and let me know what you think. Just updated to include possible returning players and coaching changes.

Thanks.

Default Alex Hill

Nice site...I need to bookmark it!

I'll bring to light a player that has been off the radar for quite some time, but I think that's all about to change this season....

Alex Hill, 6'5" 220 lbs! Alex has maybe one year of college experience, I think in Tifton GA. HE played for the Orlando Aces with me in 2006, and spent some time in Mexico last season. Alex is raw talent, and very, very well trained. He's been working with Marvin Harvey, a shooting coach, for probably half of his life. I can't wait to see where he ends up and what he does with his opportunity this season. Now he has a ridiculous upside!!!!

I'll be sure to watch for Alex tomorrow. I know both Lou Babiarz at the Bismarck Tribune and my colleague Matt Moore at RidiculousUpside both plan to live blog the draft. I might also. Also, I just obtained the official allocation list. Everyone should go over to RU and check it out.

Thanks for posting the full list of allocated/returning players. It's nice to have them in one place. Dakota and Sioux Falls look ridiculously strong right off the bat.

The league website got it up now too, just a bit later. Keep checking back with RU though. Tonight the plan is for Matt to do a live blog of the draft tonight. If he's not able to, I'm going to try putting something together.

I might actually be able to watch/listen to the draft tonight because I'm not going anywhere with this blizzard...my car is surrounded by snow drifts and the parking lot drive-in is blocked with more snow and ice. The guy with the brand new Toyota Tundra couldn't even drive through it. I'm just gonna wait for the Bobcat to come and clean it out! Kind of a plus living in an apartment. If any of the Dakota Wizards are in town yet, they're gonna wonder why they came back to Bismarck!

Any predictions on who the top pick will be tonight?

Tierre Brown, Smush Parker and Russell Robinson iare NBA caliber 1's.
Rob McKiver and Gary Forbes are the Top 2.
Erik Daniels, James White and Derrick Byers are the top 3's.
James Mays is the top 4
and Richards is the best Center.

I'm interested in seeing how Eddie Ard, KJ Garland and Keoni Watson make out vs. top notch talent.

Kieth Brumbaugh is the prototype minor league player, here is a guy that has loads of talent but has never been coached. He'll also need to gain a little weight because those 6'8 190 dudes never seem to pan out.

Same goes for John Gilchrist, dude was all-ACC as a jr. but a bad tude sidetracked his career, I hope he gets his act together.

Jasper Johnson was a D-2 Beast at Delta State, and their are not a lot of beefy players that can pound inside with him on the draft list.

Taj McCollough was the final cut by the Washington Wizards this fall.

Alpha Bangara is one of the all-time greatest former Mayhem players (For all you old-CBA guys).

Ashanti Cook, Gary Ervin and Vernon Hamilton are all good PG's that could go in Rounds 2-3.

I'd look for bigs (there are not many out there this year) to go in a hurry so Jermareo Davidson, Mohammed Abukar, Coleman Collins, Mays, Daniels and Richards should go in the 1st round. Along with former NBA players like Brown, Parker, White and David Noel. Solid vets like Byars, Hamilton and Larry Ayuso sound round out the 1st round along with the cream of the crop rookies: Russell, Brumbaugh and McCollough and Forbes.(If CJ Giles had declared he would go no.1)
