3 Dukies Make Noise in the Draft…

By June 24, 2011No Comments

Irving, Smith and Singler Making NoiseAs expected Kyrie Irving was drafted number 1 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers who are trying to rebuild after the LeBron debacle, Kyrie with his abilities to get to the rim and to make the good pass may be a good way to start.

Nolan Smith was picked up by the Portland Trailblazers at the 21 spot, and Kyle Singler slips to the second round to Detroit at number 33. With these picks the respective teams are getting not only very coachable players (which is undervalued), but guys who will do whatever is asked to win. Certain teams put a premium on these qualities, all can improve but bring a fantastic skill set to to the league.
