What is your confidence level in predicting what teams will do this time all bs aside? I have no confidence this draft will be predictable at all for betting.
I mean if you got nothing better to do then just pretend these mocks are all luck like a childs game post a big board with reasonable explaintions and see what kind of reactions you get.
I know jack shizit about this class and have openly admitted it but thats probably why someone like you showed up here to dance on it thinking yould get an easy win since clearly nobody cares about this draft contest myself included.

I will grant you that this draft is less predictable than ones in the past.

Ps I didn’t realize you were a Cavs fan saying Luka said hi. You Cavs should take a point/combo guard.. :wink:

mock are always hard to do because 1 trade can completely bust the entire mock, so I'll do it primarily based on range of where i think players will be drafted while not taking into account need for teams.

Am I in Zoolander?

I don't know anything about college basketball. I would rather trade down/out. My Bulls big board for the 2020 Draft (as of November 17th):
1-Edwards; 2-Hayes; 3-Ball; 4-Haliburton; 5-Williams; 6-Lewis Jr; 7-Nesmith; 8-Vassel; 9-Avdija; 10-Okongwu.

I'm not going to list the teams, because there will be trades, and the scoring doesn't involve who's picking:

1. Anthony Edwards
2. LaMello Ball
3. James Wiseman
4. Deni Avdija
5. Obi Toppin
6. Tyrese Haliburton
7. Patrick Williams
8. Devin Vassell
9. Onyeka Okongwu
10. Killian Hayes
11. Isaac Okoru
12. Jalen Smith
13. Aaron Nesmith
14. Aleksej Pokusevski
15. Saddiq Bey
16. Precious Achiuwa
17. RJ Hampton
18. Tyrell Terry
19. Josh Green
20. Kira Lewis
21. Desmond Bane
22. Tyrese Maxey
23. Cole Anthony
24. Malachi Flynn
25. Tyler Bey
26. Paul Reed
27. Daniel Oturu
28. Payton Pritchard
29. Devon Dotson
30. Leandro Bolmaro

Edit - I knew I forgot someone - Jaden McDaniel. And probably someone else that I can't think of. Eh, I still got plenty of time to edit it. Just gotta do it before the draft starts.

It'd be nice if more people stepped up to the plate with their mocks. :thumbsup:
