2013 NBA Mock Draft (Vol. 2)

1.  Cleveland Cavaliers- C Nerlens Noel (Kentucky) I don’t think he’ll be the best player out of the draft, but he fits the mold for the Cavs. His defense is already at an All-Star level and his offense will only develop with the mentorship of Anderson Varejao (if not traded) and the help of Kyrie Irving.

KG vs. Duncan: Who’s Had The Better Career?

When I first considered this comparison, the answer was clear: Duncan is the better player. He has been the most consistent and fundamentally solid player in the last 20 years.
