The NBA Draft is Thursday and one Michael Porter Jr is expected to be a top pick in the draft. We took to Twitter to see what they said about where he would land and now we want to ask We had over 900 people vote and 52% of the people said that he will land between 4 & 6. 31% said between 7 & 10. 12% said he will be a top three pick and 5% think he will slip out of the top 10.

FWIW, here is the draft order 1-11.

And here are some replies.

This would make sense at 7, but will he make it there?

If you’re someone that wants to watch MPJ in person at the pro level, Chicago or Memphis would be the best spot for that to happen.

MPJ had a quote on CBS Sports Radio yesterday where he said he was a little bit of a mix between KD and Giannis. If that is truly the case (it could happen), then the NBA team that lands MPJ is going to be doing backflips in excitement.

Another report came out this morning, courtesy of Jeff Goodman, that said there are “varying degrees of concern about Michael Porter Jr and his back. One being told to stay away completely by medical staff, others told to be concerned about long-term risk.” So, in all seriousness, who knows where MPJ will land. Only time will tell.

If anyone wants my opinion, I do think the negative chatter around MPJ will be a good thing for him in the long run and he will be a good NBA player. KD level? That’s setting the bar extremely high, but again, it could happen. I think he would fit in really well with the Mavericks because they have their point guard in Dennis Smith Jr., they are extremely well coached, and they are an aggressive team when it comes to trying to build a winner. It doesn’t always work out, but they are dedicated to building a winner. Another team that would fit him well would be the Knicks because there’s already a star there and I believe David Fizdale to be a very good coach as well. What if MPJ and Kristaps are the duo that turn the Knicks around?
