The Big Winner!! L.A. Clippers!!

The Los Angeles Clippers walked away Tuesday with the number one pick in the upcoming draft and their eyes set on Blake Griffin out of Oklahoma. Griffin who would have been a top 5 pick last season is the clear favorite to be the number one pick. This years draft is said to be one of the weakest in recent years and that can be credited to the amount of athletes that are spending more years at the college level.
Blake Griffin was by far the best player in college basketball last season and is going to step in immediately to help the Clippers who struggled mightily this past season. He will most likely be playing with Baron Davis and next to Marcus Camby and Zach Randolph. He is going to be a great player for a franchise that is praying for help to recover and become a contender in the NBA.

The rest of the top 10 is going to be interesting with players like Thabeet, Rubio out of Spain, Harden, Curry, and the trio from the Tar Heels. There are a lot of young players in the draft that most people thought should have stayed at least one more year in college. It will be fun to see how the draft plays out and to predict how those teams will fare next season.
