SB Nation's First Postseason 2011 NBA Mock Draft

SB Nation's first NBA mock draft of the post-One Shining Moment era is up, and most notable for this area anyway is Duncanville's and Baylor's Perry Jones in the number two slot. Tom Ziller spices the list up with a haiku for each pick.

Kyrie Irving is in the top spot, which is in line with Chad Ford's player rankings. Tourney stars Derrick Williams and Kemba Walker are tabbed for Washington (#4) and Sacramento (#6) respectively. The first international player is Lithuanian forward Jonas Valanciunas (two spots ahead of Enes Kanter).
