NBA Draft 2011: Is Enes Kanter Worth a Top Three Pick in the Draft?
Well, I've nicely gone through the two biggest questions of the top two players in the 2011 NBA Draft, so let's take a look at the rest of the field bit by bit then shall we?
Enes Kanter could have been the number one pick in this year's draft, but when he was ruled ineligible to play at Kentucky that basically flew out the window.
For me, international players are a bit too risky to take with the number one pick (see Andrea Bargnani) unless they are without a doubt sure things or 7'6".
However, in a weak draft (or so the experts have deemed it to be), why not make a "reach" with a high pick for a guy that plays a position in the most demand in the NBA.
If I were an NBA GM I would definitely give him a shot in the top three, hell, I might even take a look at him with the number one pick, despite the injuries (knee injuries are the top thing to derail the career of a big man, just ask Greg Oden) and mystery surrounding him.
Although I hope the Timberwolves and Jazz ignore this and take Derrick Williams and Brandon Knight two and three so he falls to the Cavs. So...wait, yea, definitely don't draft Enes Kanter in the top three!
