Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

NBA Mock Draft, Take One

Remember how I've been nice to Chad Ford that last couple of days? Well, today is not one of those days. Go through this mock draft and you'll figure out why. No Ike Diogu? NO IKE DIOGU??? No Ronny Turiaf? No Wayne Simien? For crying out loud. He has us taking a 7-1 center named Johan Petro... from FRANCE. Why not just surrender next year already? (Editor's Note: I do realize that Turiaf is from France originally. He has also played college ball for four years and I think the weakness has left) In today's NBA, it's not about how many centers you have. There's Shaq and then there's undersized seven footers who like to shoot threes. If Ike Diogu or Wayne Simien are still around at our spot, I am going to lynch anyone who doesn't pick them.

Other great moves from Ford include picks 18-23 all being foreign with one high schooler thrown in. I think there are a few smarter teams out there than that. Channing Frye goes to Golden St with the number nine pick. Say what? Look, I like Frye, but not that much. He is a freaking twig. Chris Taft goes to the Knicks at #8 with this blurb... The Knicks don't have a decent player on their roster over 6-9. Taft's height? 6-10. Yippee.

Read it and weep.

This will be the year of the foreign player backlash (more than last year). We'll see tons go lower than expected.
