I Think this Draft Turned out pretty bad, from teams drafting players that due not suit their needs, to teams passing on players that are needed. A team even traded a Good player for nothing ( Budinger & Detroit). Some Teams that I think chose horrible players include
Sacramento - Tyreke evans + kevin Martin = 2 Scorers/Game Time = Disaster.....Straight Disaster
Detroit- Austin Daye ......What More Can I Say
Minnesota- Drafting 4 point guards and end up trading 1.......Still Pretty Stupid
New Orleans - Choosing A Point Guard ( Collison) Identical To Their Starting One.......What Was His Name ???? OO Yea Chris Paul
Utah- Choosing A Point Guard.....Same retarded mistake New Orleans did
No One chose Dionte Christmas, a great scorer , Would have been great in Minnesota
Pittsburgh Teammates were drafted in the 2nd round.......when they were great enough 2 be top 20
I Think The Only good thing that happened for a team was San Antonio....Who Got Steals ......When They drafted Blair, nanado de colo, and Jack Mclinton .....They Also Acquired Richard jefferson.....Championship team ( Maybe)
Well players were Placed in Wrong places......So i think Rookies wont really produce , but maybe some Rookies might suprise. I think Stephan Curry Might Win ROY......But Dont Be Suprised with a Guy like hansbrough( Not That He is Bad) winning it after how Sad This Draft Ended Up.......Micheal Jacksons Death Might Have overShadowed The Draft.......Well Actually Trades like Shaq And Carter did Overshadow The Draft
Well This Draft ended Up Pretty Bad Because, of the way The Gms Drafted.....Well Most Of Them....So I Would Grade This draft a C - ........I think Some suprises will be in store but if im wrong.....the rookie next season will be Pretty Bad
Share Your opinions on the draft !
I lot of teams picked players that would help them now and later. I like all the moves these teams did but Sacramento should have picked Rubio but at the same time Evans is good too and they made a judgement call and you cant get too mad because next draft there will be a ton of bigs and some stud point guards. Also you never know how the free agent thing will go. There will be a lot of talented players who are signed for the cheap. You can not fully say this is a bad draft for people until the season starts. Also i am pretty sure that it would be dumb to grab a big in this draft that is not as good when there are tons of great bigs next year. Everyone is try to save money.
You can't a grade a draft until the players play lol. Some Gm's made some questionable moves though. I will admit that. I think with all the trades and this draft being uncertain people got nervous
I don't think the Jazz drafting Maynor was a mistake. The Jazz drafted 20th and at that point these playoff teams aren't drafting starters they are adding depth to their squads. In my opinion the jazz needed a back up point guard cuz u never know when you need him, and the jazz lacked a dependable consistent backup pg.
If you compare this to 2003, or even 2005, then yes it was a a very bad draft. But those years were aberrations, and truthfully, the strength of this draft really depended on what your team needed.
If you needed a stud - a potential all-star who could resurrect your franchise - then yes, indeed, this was a bad draft.
But if you needed role players to build around your stars - 6-men, 4th options with specific skill sets - then this was actually a pretty decent draft for you.
A lot more guys from this draft are going to end up playing in late May than will ever suit up on All Star Weekend.
I agree. I think they have had a great start to the offseason. I can't wait to see Blair alongside Duncan. I hope he gets good minutes.
