-Time: 6pm on draft night. Already, there was a big trade today between the NJ Nets and MIL Bucks. Yi and Bobby Simmons traded for Richard Jefferson. Prediction time…

#1 CHICAGO BULLS: G Derrick Rose (Memphis)
#2 MIAMI HEAT: F Michael Beasley (Kansas State)- I think Beasley will be taken 2nd. If the T’Wolves fail to take Mayo third, then the Heat and Clippers could make a blockbuster trade involving Brand and Marion.
#4 SEATTLE SONICS: (traded to LA Clippers): G Eric Gordon (Indiana)
#6 NY KNICKS: G Russell Westbrook (UCLA)- The Italian Danilo Gallinari is also an option for the Knicks in this position.
#7 LA CLIPPERS (traded to Sea Sonics): C Brook Lopez (Stanford)
#8 MILWAUKEE BUCKS: G Joe Alexander (West Virginia)-We’ll see if the Bucks go another direction with Jefferson now on the roster.
#9 CHARLOTTE BOBCATS: G DJ Augustin (Texas)-Biggest bust of the top ten picks. A great college player, but he is too small to contribute on the NBA level. Plus, if Michael Jordan likes you, that can’t be a great sign.
#10 NEW JERSEY NETS: F Danilo Gallinari (Italy)
#11 INDIANA PACERS: F Anthony Randolph (LSU)
#12 SACRAMENTO KINGS: G Jerryd Bayless (Arizona)- Either Augustin or Bayless will slide towards the end of the lottery. This would be a great steal for Reggie “Hangtime” Theus.
#13 PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS: G Mario Chalmers (Kansas)
#14 GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS: C Kosta Koufos (Ohio State)
#15 PHOENIX SUNS: G Brandon Rush (Kansas)
#16 PHILADELPHIA 76ERS: F Darrell Arthur (Kansas)- Not thrilled about this pick, but I like him more than Koufos, Speights, Lopez, Anderson, and Hibbert. At least, he can run the floor.
#17 TORONTO RAPTORS (traded to Ind Pacers): C Marreese Speights (Florida)
#18 WASHINGTON WIZARDS: C Robin Lopez (Stanford)
#19 CLEVELAND CAVS: F Ryan Anderson (Cal)- A chance to be an impact player immediately.
#20 DENVER NUGGETS (traded to Cha Bobcats): C Roy Hibbert (Georgetown)- No thank you.
#21 NEW JERSEY NETS: Alexis Ajinca (France)
#22 ORLANDO MAGIC: G Courtney Lee (Western Kentucky)- Pretty confident about this prediction.
#23 UTAH JAZZ: C Serge Ibaka (Spain)
#24 SEATTLE SONICS: C DeAndre Jordan (Texas A&M)
#25 HOUSTON ROCKETS: F Donte Greene (Syracuse)
#26 SAN ANTONIO SPURS: F Nicolas Batum (France)
#27 NEW ORLEANS HORNETS (traded to Por Blazers: C Ante Tomic (Croatia)
#28 MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES: C Javale McGee (Nevada)
#29 DETROIT PISTONS: G Chris Douglas-Roberts (Memphis)
#30 BOSTON CELTICS: C Omar Asik (Turkey)-I really hope I predict this one right.

I'm the kind of hombre who enjoys to taste innovative things. Right now I am constructing my own solar panels. I'm doing it all by myself without the aid of my men. I'm using the net as the only way to acheive that. I came across a very brilliant site that explains how to create photovoltaic panels and so on. The website explains all the steps involved in photovoltaic panel construction.

I am not really sure bout how accurate the data given there is. If some people over here who had xp with these works can have a see and give your feedback in the thread it would be awesome and I'd highly treasure it, because I truly would love to try solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. U people rock.
