Sim Bhullar and the Draft

The NBA Draft is Thursday and I believe Sim Bhullar has hopes either Toronto picks him in the second to last pick in the Draft or Sacramento trades to pick up a second-round pick, but that could very well be rumor two days before the Draft.

Bhullar was "Drafted" by the Harlem Globetrotters, but so was Landon Donovan. Not really news but here is the link if you want to read about it. 

Here is an actual link that I found very interesting comparing all of the Centers in Thursday's Draft so you can see where Bhullar compares from a statistical point of view. He doesn't seem to stand out in any category so it will be interesting to see if his size and PR appeal are enough to get him picked.

Bhullar was also featured in a couple videos today, checking in at the No. 5 spot on the YouTube Draft

I got to say that Sim looks like a different player in this video. Nice looking 15 footer and he looks quicker and much more conditioned. Good luck to him.

Very disapointed Sim wasnt drafted. Whoever (MM) kept pushing him to enter the draft was not in Sims best interest. Come back home, Sim and finish you schooling & win a Final Four. We welcome you back with open arms!

Sim looked ready as could be, the internet reports and the Bleacher Report video provided an introduction to the young man and the basketball player. I was holding out hope for Toronto to draft Sim late in the second round. Toronto seems to have been a major influence on Sim declaring early or at least according to the reports on the internet, so it seems like drafting him would have been a logical move. After the debacle of Toronto's first round pick (someone who could have easily been drafted late in the second round or signed as a free agent), the fans of Toronto would have loved to see a native son drafted and the Toronto Indian community, which as reported is very large, would have gone crazy to see Sim drafted as well. Too many draft and stash picks really dilute the draft to the point that it looses all entertainment value, unless you enjoy Fran Frachilla's redundant commentary on players we have never seen or will never see on our continent. I hope Sim makes an impression in the summer league and gets an opportunity to show all these teams that a couple of years of college competition will improve our college game and result in better prepared pros. Good Luck Sim, you have provided us in Aggie Nation GREAT GREAT times!

Jason, I know you can't mention everyone in the top returning and newcomers, just want to check up on the status of Travon and of course Jonathon Wilkins.
