Out of all the underclassmen who made the worst decision by staying in the draft?

Tommy Mason-Griffin, after

Tommy Mason-Griffin, after his Junior-Senior year he could have potentially been a early 2nd rounder, but he decided that school just wasn't for him and stayed in the draft....he'll likely go undrafted, with so much years of college eligibility left, its a shame that he'll have to play off of some bench in Europe

Orton

He should have stayed a year so he could atleast get some solid starting time.

No way you can knock Orton

No way you can knock Orton for leaving early his going to be a top 25 pick. As for TMG I dont think he could have come back if he wanted to, he's go no issue going to play in Europe. Get money! Fk btches!

Daniel Orton

He's gonna be a top 25 pick this year, but if he stayed he could have been a top 10 pick next year. Yeah, he'll be a multi-millionaire, but whats the point if your just gonna end up being a bench warmer and eventually not in the NBA ?

I think Avery Bradley could

I think Avery Bradley could have been a top ten,maybe 5, pick in 2011 for sure with a full year at pg for Texas under his belt. Cant knock him for leaving since he is a guaranteed first rounder

No one because of the lock

No one because of the lock out.

Even TMG who may not be drafted made the right choice because he just wanted to make money playing professionally, and he's going to be able to do that without issue.

Luke Babbit if he would have tested this year and worked out, got the buzz and then dominated next year at Nevada could have played his way into a top ten guarantee, and even though there's a chance he goes lottery, going back could have helped. That being said it wasn't the wrong decision to declare.

Orton and Mason-Griffin were

Orton and Mason-Griffin were crazy to declare IMO. Samardo Samuels as well.

And for all of you saying Orton's going to be a multi-millionaire so why fault him....It's on a rookie deal. He's not going to make more than like 1 million a year over 2 or 3 years (if he goes in the 20-30 range). If he sucks he'll have $2 million for the 2 years they guarantee you, so it's not like he would be getting nearly as much money as he possibly could have if he went back to school and actually proved he was good. He could be a lotto player and prove after a few years he deserved a big deal if he was actually good. But y'all are saying declare for the draft because you hear you're a 1st rounder after averaging 3 ppg and 3 rpg? If he put up 15 and 10 next year then those would be draft worthy. Orton is a joke right now.

Samardo Samuels has a great

Samardo Samuels has a great chance to be an early to mid 2nd round pick. I doubt he goes undrafted. He has worked out for plenty of NBA teams and was part of a group session in Minny. Reportedly he has been invited back for a second workout for a couple of teams.

I think Orton made a great

I think Orton made a great decision. Don't forget about that knee injury he had. Who knows, that could have come back to haunt him next year if he were to stay at UK. If you can get guaranteed money, why would you pass that up? If Randolph Morris can hang around as long as he has, then Orton has a good chance to catch another deal if he were to under perform throughout his rookie contract.

The TM-G was a bad move, same for Dee Bost. However, Bost has enrolled for summer classes at MSU and is claiming he didn't know about the deadline to withdraw.
