Only three days left until the 2011 NBA draft, and the anticipation is already mounting. Although weak by normal draft standards, this year's class is actually full of some amazing talents who will do nothing but succeed at the NBA level.
At this point, it looks like the No. 1 pick, which belongs to the Cleveland Cavaliers, will be either Duke point guard Kyrie Irving or Arizona forward Derrick Williams (pictured). Regardless of which player receives that honor, I am psyched for Thursday night.
As any draft-head knows, all eyes will be on the legendary "big board," where each player in the draft is ranked according to skills. The big board does not necessarily give the estimated order in which the players will be drafted, but rather ranks the best players available from top to bottom.
For all of you draft-heads out there, here is my personal big board, which features the top 60 draft prospects. Again, this is not necessarily the order in which these 60 players will go in Thursday night's draft, but how I've ranked them based on overall skill.
