Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

Westbrook to Seattle, Love to Memphis

Posted by r1zzo23 on June 26, 2008

The Sonics were rumored to be moving this pick to the Clippers, but ended up keeping it. I agree with Jay Bilas in saying Westbrook is the best individual defender in this draft. He also was a great point guard in place of Darren Collison for a long stretch of time at UCLA. Although not a true point guard, he’ll be sure to get Kevin Durant the rock when necessary.

Memphis selects Kevin Love, the big man out of UCLA. Love doesn’t have the upside as many of the prospects in this draft, but the Grizz needed to replace Pau Gasol in the post and Love can carve out some space. Hopefully Gay and Love can learn to co-exist (only on the court).
