The mock drafting has started for the NBA with the lottery picks almost ready to go. The Cleveland Cavaliers seem to have a theme going in most mock drafts, and the SB Nation 2012 NBA Mock Draft continues the meme of Florida's Bradley Beal going to the Cavs at third overall.
Rolls Royce Backourt II. Kyrie Irving and Beal will be unstoppable, like Gilbert Arenas and Larry Hughes (uh) or Tyreke Evans and Kevin Martin (uhh) or Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry (uhhhhhhhhhh).
I sense a bit of snark here from Mr. Ziller. Beal would add yet another super talent to the young core of Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson that the Cavs have put together.
This is, of course, subject to change depending on how the lottery balls roll on May 30. If Cleveland manage to get the No. 1 pick though, it'll just get a bit boring watching them select Anthony Davis in every single mock draft for the next several months. It's like Andrew Luck to the Colts all over again in Basketball form!
