NBA Draft: The Ultimate Point Guard Breakdown

New, comments
USA TODAY Sports

If you are like me you have spent hours online trying to figure out the NBA Draft. This season the Utah Jazz really need point guard help as everyone who is allowed to play point guard is currently an unrestricted free agent: Mo Williams, Jamaal Tinsley, Randy Foye, and Earl Watson. As a result for Jazz fans we have our eyes on the point guards available via free agency and the draft. While this guide is useful to us Jazz fans, it's also useful for all NBA fans as well. If you care about the point guards in this draft class -- this is the only resource you need . . .

. . . if the only thing you care about are anagrams.

I couldn't figure out a few because I had no clue what C.J. or D.J. stood for. Anyway, here they are.

No Name Anagram
1 Anthony Marshall Llama Horn Shanty
2 C.J. McCollum
3 D.J. Cooper
4 Dennis Schroeder Drenched Seniors
5 Erick Green Cringe Reek
6 Isaiah Canaan Aha! As a Niacin
7 Lorenzo Brown Nor Bronze Owl
8 Matt Dellavedova Data Malt Evolved
9 Michael Carter-Williams Well, A Charismatic Miler . . .
10 Myck Kabongo Gym. Cook. Bank.
11 Nate Wolters Town Relates
12 Nemanja Nedovic Join: Caveman Den
13 Peyton Siva Vanity Pose
14 Phil Pressey Lesser Hippy
15 Pierre Jackson Pranks! Rejoice!
16 Ramon Galloway A Anomaly Growl
17 Ray McCallum A Crummy Call
18 Shane Larkin Hankie Snarl
19 Trey Burke Rebuke Try (Ty? Ha ha)
20 Will Cherry Will Her Cry?

Who you guys got? Hankie Snarl sounds particularly, uh, dominating. I wonder why the town could relate to the guy whose name turns into Town Relates . . . I have a certain affinity for an all-business guy on that list. He looks like he's here to work. But help me out with the last two!
