One Man Mock Draft, Fantasy NBA 2009: Round 2, Pick 4

KG

A sure sign you are starting to lose touch with the pulse of popular culture is when you discover new songs and/or new bands while watching a TV show or a movie. By the time you catch Natalie Portman mentioning that the band name was “The Shins,” two years have passed, the movie has been out on DVD forever, and the band has not put out an album since.

Along the same vein, if the NBA has for whatever reason removed itself from your life for the last couple of years but now you return, it might come as a mild surprise that KG remains available here. After all, as recent as a couple of years ago, he was in the running for the first overall pick. Plus, if anything, his profile increased after the trade to Boston where the Celtics won a championship two seasons ago. Last year the ending was not so happy for the guys in green, as their captain missed the playoffs due to injuries. In mock drafts this summer, it seems folks are confidently calling his name in the early part of the second round. Let us put his fantasy game under the microscope.

Round 2, Pick 4: Kevin Garnett, PF, Boston Celtics

Kevin Garnett. Gilbert Arenas. Yao Ming. Steve Nash. Tim Duncan. Jason Kidd. Be it the injury bug or Father Time shortening the list of tried and true first round fantasy talent, there is a palpable drop in headlining players even though the second round has only just started. Thus, mock draft gurus have this next player going off the board within the top fifteen picks. For a roto league, this center-eligible player deserves early round consideration. In a head-to-head league, consistency remains important, but big game explosions can win match-ups almost by themselves. So let us examine whether drafting this player is merely a safe play; can he ride shotgun on your championship team?

Round 2, Pick 2: Pau Gasol, PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers

Description
Despite recent rumors that Kevin Garnett would request a trade to a team that has a better shot at the playoffs, on Tuesday he made clear that those rumors were not valid. Garnett has spent his entire 12 year career with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Although the Big Ticket is out indefinitely with a quad injury, he’s leading the team with 22.4 points per game and an NBA leading 12.8 rebounds per game. Garnett, could have suffered the quad injury due to averaging 39.4 minutes per game; while only 30 years old, KG is NBA-old, playing his 12th season in the league this year.
