Rant-Off: No. 1 Overall Pick in 2013 NBA Draft
The 2013 NBA Draft may be as wide open as any draft in history when it comes to the first overall pick. Had Nerlens Noel not suffered a torn ACL halfway through his freshman year at Kentucky, he would be the undisputed, consensus No. 1 pick, but that devastating injury makes the first overall pick interesting.
Players like Ben McLemore, Otto Porter and even Anthony Bennett have a good shot to hear their names called as the newest player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, assuming the team doesn’t trade that top selection.
McLemore is arguably the best guard in this year’s draft as he can do it all. The Kansas superstar can score with the step-back jumper and he can also drive the lane and finish at the rim. However, the Cavs already have a solid scoring guard in Kyrie Irving, so adding another one now doesn’t make a ton of sense.
Bennett isn’t the sexy pick at No. 1, but he’s a scoring big man, which is what the Cavs need the most. He’s a 6-foot-7 power forward who plays like a seven-footer, which is something that can’t be taught.
Finally, Porter could be a nice fit in Cleveland as he’s a slashing small forward who is ever-so-slightly reminiscent of a player at the same position who left the team high and dry three years ago.
Who do you think should be the first overall pick in this year’s draft? Comment below and let us know!
