Is Tigers Rose The "Pick" for Number One in the NBA Draft?

Of one thing there is NO question...

Last Season's U of M Basketball team was one of the Most Talented in the Nation..

Now, there's growing support for one Former Tiger to be the Number One Pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

ESPN.com is now touting Memphis' Derrick Rose as the Number One Selection, over Kansas State's Michael Beasley.

ESPN says with NBA Point Guards like Chris Paul, Tony Parker, and Deron Williams all the rage right now powering their teams in the playoffs, Rose might be ready to step in and do the same.

For the second straight year, the Draft is focusing on two players..

Rose and Beasley are capturing all the attention just like Greg Oden and Kevin Durant did last year.

2-months ago, Beasley, a 6'10" Power Forward, was the the consensus Number One..putting up mad stats in the tough Big-12 Conference..

But Rose Dominant performance in the NCAA Tournament is dramatically changing opinions.

Rose earned MVP honors in the NCAA South Regional, and could've won Most Outstanding Player for the entire Tournament had Memphis not blown a late second half lead in the National Championship game against Kansas.

The NBA Draft is June 26th.
