Don't worry, we'll get our guy...


I see there is already some chatter about next year's draft here and on other boards.  Gotta love that.  Let the current wolves grow and develop and the future wolves carve out a draft spot.  I am here to tell you not to fear, that we will get our guy in the first round who will be a difference maker from day 1.  And we won't need a top 6-7 pick to nab him.  So we can forget all the tanking business when the season starts to come to an end.  This will be a win win situation.  There are 3 big weaknesses right now in our backcourt.  Defense, penetrating (scoring or dishing), and creating a shot.  Well my friends there just happens to be a guy who will be rising up draft boards this year that will give us just that.  Is he a 2 guard?  A PG?  The answer to both could be yes.  He's a combo special.  Right now he sits at #13 on draftexpress.com and #20 on nbadraft.net.  Josh Selby of Kansas is the player I'm talking about.  He is a hard nosed baller who can get his own and play defense, and looks to be an outstanding shooter/finisher as well.  He is listed at 6-3 right now.  Watch him rise up the charts as the year progresses.  Hopefully not too high though.  There are just too many reasons to draft him.  Could he start at the 2?  Maybe maybe not.  If he ends up measuring in at 6-4 or better with a long reach, it could be conceivable.  At bare minimum he would be everything Jonny Flynn was supposed to be.  A dynamic combo who breaks down defenses and pesters the hell out of anybody with the basketball.  Guys like that play in crunch time at the end of games and are difference makers, even if they don't have a true position.  Hell if he beats out Rubio at the PG position then who cares?  At least Kahn could say that he drafted him as a combo 2 guard and not get made fun of for drafting another PG.  I would like to see a matchup between KU and Duke later this year in the tourney if and when Kyrie Irving gets healthy.  I think we could learn a lot about them both.  Discuss....
