Mockin' It One More Time

What can a guy do while waiting on hold with his bank's customer service department?  Run ESPN's Mock Draft Machine 100 times.  Here's how it came out for Our Beloved Puppies:

  1. 1st pick: 26 times (Michael Beasley 26)
  2. 2nd pick: 10 times (Derrick Rose 6, Beasley 4)
  3. 3rd pick: 12 times (Brook Lopez 12)
  4. 4th pick: 20 times (Anthony Randolph 14, Lopez 6)
  5. 5th pick: 20 times (Randolph 20)
  6. 6th pick: 12 times (Randolph 12)

All in all, the Wolves took Beasley 30 times, Rose 6 times, Lopez 18 times, and Randolph 46 times. Perhaps this is the way to look at the draft.  Let's plug in the Wolves' chances for each pick:

  1. 13.80%
  2. 14.24%
  3. 14.54%
  4. 23.82%
  5. 29.05%
  6. 4.55%

If you follow the draft order as listed in the Mock Draft Machine, this works out to roughly 21.5 Beasleys, 5.7 Roses, 21.6 Lopezes, and 50.2 Randolphs.  Just some food for thought. 

Until later.
