Michael Roll

Roll led UCLA in points and assists last year. Normally, that makes a player draft calibre. And Michael Roll would have been, were it 1972. However, despite his good looking jumpshot, despite his decent passing skills, despite his very smart and mistake-free style of play, Roll just isn't athletic enough to play at the elite levels. He doesn't even have J.J. Redick-calibre athleticism. It's a shame, because he's a very nice player.

Roll has already signed for next season, agreeing to join Turkish team Bornova. Fitting, he replaces his former UCLA team mate Josh Shipp, who has moved on to fellow Turkish team Galatasaray.

Sexilver also announces that Oklahoma City have drafted Magnum Rolle, an athletic forward out of Louisiana Tech, with the 51st pick. Rolle is OK, but many better players exist in this draft pool, including most of the names I have already mentioned. Rather than taking one of them, though, Oklahoma City have taken a fifth year senior whom Latavious Williams will resemble if he doesn't develop for the next four years. It's a strange choice.

Magnum Rolle is quite obviously the best name of the draft, if not the best name of the decade. Unlike previous years, there's not enough ammunition for an all-porno-name starting five this season, but with a name like Magnum Rolle in the mix, one is no longer needed. I just wish UCLA's Michael Roll was more athletic, so that he could be here too.
