NBA Mock Draft 2011: Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams Spark Controversy

NBA fans have begun releasing their post-lottery mock drafts and already controversy is stirring between sports experts and their predictions of what’s going to happen in the 2011 draft.

While it seems the majority believe that Kyrie Irving will be picked first by the Cavaliers, followed by Derrick Williams by the Timberwolves, there is at least one person who’s convinced the two stars will not be chosen first in this year’s draft.

Matt King, a writer for BleacherReport.com boldly states in an article published yesterday that “Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams Will Not Be First Drafted.”

A bold statement considering most of the NBA mock drafts of 2011 have Irving and Williams in the No. 1 and 2 spots.
