I have a friend. His name happens to be Jack Jorgensen. I have known him now for about 15 years or so. During that time we have argued sports, pro wrestling and which way is the best way to curb-stop a hooker if we were to enter the managing of streetwalker talent business. So, yeah, we like to chalk it up a bit.
With that being said, and since you are unlikely to care, Jack –who is FanSided’s NCAA Editorial Director or something — released a top-50 2014 NBA Draft prospects for FanSided. For the most part, it is pretty agreeable. That is except in a few areas. Areas, mind you, that needed to be fixed.
However, I can’t fix those things. I happen to be less important a member of the human species than he. So, I am going to release my 2014 NBA Draft big board: Best 50 prospects — the anti Jack Jorgensen version.
Really, it is the exact same theory. I am going to rank who I think are the best 50 future NBA players in order. My order will be different than his. Why? Because I happen to be more awesome.
Think of him as Hulk Hogan and I as the Macho Man. Sure, the Hulkster gets all the praise for being him, but everyone knows that Randy Savage was actually way better in every facet of life.
You can look at Jack’s big board here. Mine is below (with some bad attempts at humor mixed in). Your move, Dr. Jackals.
|DANTE EXUM||G||Australia, Das Wonderkid|
|Dario Saric||SF/PF||Heaven (like basketball heaven)|
|Marcus Smart||SG||OK State|
|T.J. Warren||SF||NC State|
|Gary Harris||SF||Michigan State|
|Cleanthony Early||SF||Wichita State|
|Adreian Payne||PF||Michigan State|
|P.J. Hairston||F||The U of Nowhere|
|Bogdan Bogdanovic||SG||Yes, a real person|
|Glenn Robinson III||F||The loins of Glenn Robinson|
|Jahii Carson||G||Underrated University|
|Markel Brown||G||OK State|
|Fuquan Edwin||G||Seton Hall|
|Keith Appling||G||Michigan State|
|Thanasis Antetokounmpo||SG||Nigerian born, Greece play|

|Xavier Thames||G||San Diego State|
|Anyone but Aquille Carr||G||YouTube University|
Shows over, Jack!
*This is not a mock draft, but who I believe are the best 50 NBA prospects. They are in the order of my assumed excellence of them. Also, side note, I love Dario Saric. If I had the stones he would be number two.
