    Terrible mock draft. McCullom will not be a lottery pick let alone a top 5 pick? Zeller will be a top 5 pick and there is zero chance Alex Len, Ben McLemore, and Isaiah Austin all fall out of the lottery.

      After the early success of Lillard in the NBA, I can see other teams following the trend. McCollum is a similar player who plays PG, but can score well. Also certain teams just drafted C’s this past season so it makes no sense to draft another. It all depends on the order. As both seasons go on, players stock will rise and fall as always. We’ll see….
