Happy Draft Day! Mel Kiper and Todd McShay are well known for giving their differing opinions on the NFL Draft. We decided to be both of these football draft gurus and put our thinking hats on for each NBA team. The following mock draft, presented to you by RealGM, is basically what each of us would do if we were the General Manager for every team during each pick. Enjoy!
Kiper (Sadiq) McShay (Sadaab)
