I love this draft!

(This is as much to kick start the FreeDrafto operation as it is entertain our legions of readers. But it still warrants sharing with the FreeDarko community)

Chad Ford strikes again. Just when you thought this year's draft was going to be ruined by common sense and respect paid to college players, he drops this gem on us, live and direct from some Euro camp somewhere overseas:

Victor Keirou, SG, Russia

Nicknamed the "Black Russian" because of his mixed heritage (his father is black, his mother Russian), Keirou stunned scouts in attendance with his smooth, athletic game, scoring 20 points and shooting 3-for-3 from beyond the arc. He has great size and athleticism for his position and showed a nice shooting touch from the perimeter. He hasn't played much on his team in Kazan, Russia, but his talent is unmistakable. If he stays in the draft, he's a likely second-round pick. If he pulls out, he could work his way into the first round next season.

People get ready.

did you notice that ford is now saying that paul is "the best point guard prospect since jason kidd IF HE WAS 3 INCHES TALLER?" does that mean that marvin williams would be the best center prospect since shaq if he was 3 inches taller, thus making him a legit 7 footer. what kind of condition is that?

he's only added that 3 inches line over the last few weeks.

and it's interesting to note that he's not saying "like a shorter j-kidd." just "best PG since jkidd but shorter." wouldn't that make him an entirely different type of player, just same position?

(insert clever analogue here)
