Oregon Love: Ford also updates his analysis of Patrick O'Bryant, and there is some dissenting opinion on where the Bradley big man should be taken:
"I think he's the No. 1 pick," one GM said. "Everyone at the top of the draft is about upside. Tyrus Thomas, LaMarcus Aldridge, Andrea Bargnani, Rudy Gay; they all have a ways to go. But none of them are 7-footers who will be centers in the pros. I think when in doubt, you go with the center."
However, there were dissenting voices in the crowd.
"I think Patrick is an interesting prospect," another GM said. "But he's a late lottery prospect, not a high lottery one. I've followed him all year. I think he has a long ways to go. It's going to require a lot of hard work for a kid like that to make it in this league. From what I've seen and heard, I'm not sure he's going to put in the effort it takes to become great. Why would you risk it with the No. 1 pick? He's the type of kid, like Kwame Brown or Michael Olowokandi, who can get you fired. You see the size and talent, and you fall in love. But kids like this can break your heart."
