A few days ago I started a Google spreadsheet where people could post their predictions of the draft order for the 2015 NBA Draft. Well, what this exercise proved is that this draft was absolutely stupid in terms of expected picks. Out of the 16 people who took part, 11 filled in a full first round prediction, whilst only three brave souls ventured further and tackled the second round as well. Therefore, let's see who predicted what.
Less than the first round
The guys in this list only predicted parts of the draft (usually the lottery, or sections of the first round). Some of these people aren't DBB users, rather friends of Goose (I think), whom he has invited to partake. The more the merrier!
|Dirk the velociraptor (Top 3)||1/3 (Towns)|
|sauce1977 (Lottery)||2/14 (Towns, Mudiay)|
|The_Gille (Lottery)||3/14 (Towns, Cauley-Stein, Payne)|
|NotLikeYoMamma (Top 12)||4/12 (Towns, Porzingis, Hezonja, Johnson)|
|Aussiepiston (Lottery)||5/14 (Towns, Russell, Okafor, Turner, Booker)|
These guys only predicted the first round.
|Goose15||8/30 (Towns, Russell, Okafor, Porzingis, Hezonja, Johnson, Kaminsky, Payne)|
|C_BASS||7/30 (Towns, Porzingis, Hezonja, Johnson, Kaminsky, Payne, McCullough)|
|umfan223||4/30 (Towns, Johnson, Payne, McCullough)|
|Kellen Moore Our Savior?||5/30 (Towns, Cauley-Stein, Johnson, Payne, McCullough)|
|JDBell20||9/30 (Towns, Russell, Okafor, Porzingis, Mudiay, Johnson, Grant, Wright, McCullough)|
|J Dre||5/30 (Towns, Hezonja, Johnson, Hollis-Jefferson, Martin)|
|Tootin' Mahorn||3/30 (Towns, Russell, Johnson)|
|SRK756100||5/30 (Towns, Cauley-Stein, Lyles, Payne, Oubre)|
Three cavalier souls ventured into the wild and had a stab at predicting the whole 60. It was interesting to say the least.
|Ben Quagliata||4/60 (Towns, Oubre, Mickey, Diez) - I am ashamed that I got 2/30 for the first round|
|Donnie basketball||7/60 (Towns, Russell, Okafor, Johnson, Kaminsky, Payne, Grant)|
|Vincent Diringer||5/60 (Towns, Porzingis, Hezonja, Mudiay, Johnson) - Interesting side note, the 56th pick was Branden Dawson. Vince, unfortunately, predicted Shawn Dawson, such a shame, better luck next time.|
There you have it. The best effort at predicting the draft was JDBell20, who predicted 9 correct draft choices. Unfortunately, some of us were not born with the skills of Chad Ford, but don't fret, check back in three years and you may find a different story.
