Draft Predictions 2012


I pulled up all the data on the 2012 Draft and based only on 2012 data I crafted the PAWS40 of all the 52 draftees via draft express data. I then correlated the best paws40 and forecasted their picks.

PICK TEAM DRAFTEE POS

1 Hornets Anthony Davis 4

2 Bobcats Jae Crowder 3

3 Wizards Thomas Robinson 3

4 Cavaliers Damian Lillard 1

5 Kings Tyler Zeller 4/5

6 Blazers* Will Barton 2

7 Warriors Scott Machado 1

8 Raptors Drew Gordon 4

9 Pistons Kyle O'Quinn 4/5

10 Hornets* Marcus Denmon 2

11 Blazers John Henson 4

12 Bucks Andrew Nicholson 4/5

13 Suns Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 2

14 Rockets Jared Sullinger 4

I might also do a 2011/2012 one that will be more accurate than this one. Preliminary results show that Machado falls off this map. But i'm gonna wait a bit to do that one since it's not fantasy basketball season yet.

Here's the top deviations of 2012.

Top PGs

Damian Lillard

Scott Machado

Top SGs

Will Barton

Marcus Denmon

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Top SFs

Jae Crowder

Thomas Robinson

Will Barton (he should not really be part of this deviation but I don't care.)

Top PFs

Anthony Davis

Tyler Zeller (neither he or Jae should be part of this deviation, yeah that's how pimp davis is)

Jae Crowder (crowder shouldn't be here either.)

Top Centers

Tyler Zeller

Kyle O'Quinn (come on, a guy's gotta eat.)

Andrew Nicholson (this guy doesn't really belong here)

Please do not say that we should grab scott machado because this is just data for one year. Depending on how well just one year small sample data does in fantasy basketball i might not even do the complete college data stuff.

I intend to do an analysis of which person we should have gotten with the Knicks' pick. I'm assuming we will be picking moronic because I hate Dolan. :)
