No Change In Ford's Newest Mock Draft
By caseyholdahl Posted in: 2011draft
The NBA Draft is a week from tomorrow, right? I only ask because as far as I can tell, few people are paying attention to next Thursday's festivities. Maybe people are still focused on the Finals or are tired of paying attention after the Finals. Maybe it's because of the perceived lack of high-end talent in this draft. Or maybe it's the uncertainty on the horizon. Heck, maybe it's because they moved the event from New York City to Secaucus, NJ.
Whatever the reason, there hasn't been much of anything to report despite the draft being eight days away. No rumors with any real legs, no prospects climbing up or falling down the mock drafts.
Case in point: Chad Ford released the fifth iteration of his 2011 mock draft
, and he still has the Trail Blazers taking Kenneth Faried. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about the prospect of the team taking Faried. His penchant for hard-nosed play
would be a welcomed addition. All I'm saying is that typically we'd see some fluctuations on Ford's big board. This year, crickets, at least when it comes to the Trail Blazers.
