DeAndre Liggins to the Lakers Wants Afternoon Notes

A few notes for you…

 – ESPN’s Chad Ford has his latest mock draft now published and goes the boring route of putting Brandon Knight to the Jazz at #3 and and Enes Kanter to the Cavs at #4.  More importantly, the extended mock draft has DeAndre Liggins going to the Lakers at #56 overall.  The Lakers fit the profile of an established and talented team that would benefit from a defensive-minded role player like Liggins, but there’s an issue to be considered should Los Angeles pull the trigger on him.  The Fighting Kobes have three second-round picks and Ford has them selecting wing players with all of them, lending credence to the thought that they want to get younger in the backcourt.  The only problem is that there probably wont’ be room for all three.  If that indeed becomes the case, Liggins probably has a leg up on the rest because he fills a niche, but he might be back to where he was the past two months – fighting for a roster spot.

 – The mock drafts continued to pour out and Jonathon Givony of Draft Express/Yahoo published his.  He also has Brandon Knight going to the Jazz and Enes Kanter going to Cleveland, which has to hurt his soul.  He’s been on the “Enes Is Overrated” train for quite awhile, but acknowledges that the buyout stipulations in Jonas Valancius’ contract make Enes the likely pick.

 – If you haven’t heard yet, there was a guy who created a fake recruiting blog and Twitter profile to prove something everyone knows:  people make stuff up about recruiting to look cool and make some Google ad money.  The list of people he “exposed” or whatever by having them follow him, retweet him or cite his information is lengthy and includes one handsome face from this site.  What he says he learned is that anyone will believe stuff put out on Twitter as long as it looks like it comes from a good source.  Shocking, I know.  What I think we all really learned, though, is that the quest to be the coolest dude on the recruiting planet among people getting paid by the major recruiting networks and sites has essentially left some of them with little credibility.  Just remember that when they’re high-fiving each other today about all the “outsiders” that got fooled by the clowns on their same network Re-tweeting and “breaking” false recruiting updates. And shame on all of us that don’t follow recruiting for believing the Twitter updates of those that get paid to do so.

 – Who is going to lead the SEC in scoring this season?  A few weeks ago, a number of you said you thought it’d be Doron Lamb.  Chandler Parsons disagrees.  He thinks Florida’s Mike Rosario will lead the SEC in scoring.  Rosario averaged nearly 17 points per game as a sophomore at Rutgers before transferring to Florida to show off his abs and get sweet discounts.

    Sources say KSR got fooled!

    I spoke to some people close to situation and they said that every blog is full of ish and 75% of recruiting sites are full ish! All anyone does is regurgitate pointless information that no one actually cares about, but if you put the word “source” with it, somehow you (as the writer) feel cool and important!

    Wow…using the word “source” is addicting and brings back that feeling of power I use to have when I was a hall monitor!

    I don’t think I could ever like anyone named “Chandler”. It just isn’t possible. If a guy with that name drives a Volvo or Jetta, I would be forced to kill him. Good luck getting a conviction.

    4- Agree…only a couple minor errors at most, easily understandable. Perhaps the problem you are having #2 is that you can’t read?
