Masters of the Shot-Block

The big guys we've been waiting to see finally visited the Jazz on Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday saw players such as Cole Aldrich, Ekpe Udoh, and Hassan Whiteside go up against each other. On Wednesday, the Jazz saw Patrick Patterson and Larry Sanders. It would have been exciting to witness these workouts and see which players had the ability to separate themselves from the pack. I really don't know what the Jazz will do with so many options for them at #9. In some ways, they can't go wrong... and yet, the Jazz must get the best value pick at the position they're slated to select. It'll be a tough decision come draft day.

The Big Board (I think the wings are making a surge upward):
1. Greg Monroe, Georgetown
2a. Gordon Hayward, Butler
2b. Luke Babbitt, Nevada
2c. Xavier Henry, Kansas
5. Ekpe Udoh, Baylor
6. Cole Aldrich, Kansas
7. Patrick Patterson, Kentucky
8. Hassan Whiteside, Marshall
9. Ed Davis, UNC
10. Paul George, Fresno St.

On the eve of our World Cup match against England, here's to our 2nd Round hopeful from the Mother Country... Ryan Richards. He could be a potential sleeper.
