NBA needs to take control of the "combine"

I think its very difficult for teams to figure out about the real truth of participant's abilities in real games, specially now when they eliminated the 5 on 5. The projected top picks not interested in going against each other because Agents have all the control now.

I think NBA MUST make a rule in which participants must play each other in real game situations in order to be draft eligible in a main event like the combine, so this could make the draft more accurate in terms of talent vs # of selection.

I wrote this before...The NBA combine means nothing...its just numbers that can improve. The only thing i look for in a combine is how undersized players (Blair, Flynn, Mills) show in there vert leap and wingspan.

Scouts have seen all of

Scouts have seen all of these players play in real life and on tape a billion times, h.s. tape. college tape. aau tape. heck probably junior high tape. They know what they do in 5 on 5. How tall someone really is, their reach, vert etc. are clues to a players potential, that's all. That's why they have a combine.

of course the combine has

of course the combine has its benifits but the fans and writiers are the ones putting more stock into it then the gms..the writiers say so and so had a great workout so hes gonna move up in the draft but for the most part thats not what happens when draft time rolls around..the fans are the funniest though a couple think flynn now moves up to top 3 because of his vert...ummm anyone who has watched him already knows he could jump out the gym..
