Laker predictions from around the web

Here are some picks from writers online:

Chris Eckstrand (SI.com) - Mardy Collins
Ian Thomsen (SI.com) - Mardy Collins
NBAdraft.net - Thabo Sefolosha, SF - Angelico Biella
Draftexpress.com - James White, SF - CIN
KillerCrossover Mock Draft - Kyle Lowry, PG - Villanova
Collegehoops.net - Thabo Sefolosha
Insidehoops.com - Guillermo Diaz, PG - Miami
Fanball.com - Mardy Collins
Tony Mejia (CBSportsline) - Kyle Lowry

  • Collins seems to be a favorite of the mock Lakers and I'd be glad to have him.
  • Sefolosha is an athletic Swiss player who seems to rising up the boards. He doesn't have much of an outside shot though, so I can't see the Lakers taking him.
  • White is a stud athlete and uses his athleticism well on defense and on the boards. He has very little offensive game though and I believe Jackson will want a more polished player.
  • Lowry has a phenomenal first step and is a solid defender, but his height (6'1) and lack of outside shot will not endear himself to Laker management.
  • Diaz is actually a possibility. He has a very similar game to Douby albeit a bit smaller. He could be the darkhorse to break up my 6.

I miss Madsen a lot. I've always been a fan of hustle players (cuz that was my presence on the court for so long) and Madsen was just something special in that category.
