The best player in 2009 Nba Draft
 
We all obviously know Blake Griffin is best player in this draft and he is a lock to go 1st overall, but who is the best player in this draft outside of Blake Griffin ? If you asked me this 2 weeks ago i wouldved said James Harden, but he seems to dissapoint everytime the pressure is on. Makes me think, can he handle the pressure of being a Top 3 pick or will he crack on the pressure. Lately i have been really impressed by Ricky Rubio, let me say the only time i saw him play was the Olympics and the countless of Youtube Vid's. I am really impressed by this kid and he is my pick as the best player in this draft(outside of Griffin).

I'm buying the Ricky Rubio hype.

As far as Greg Monroe and James Harden.. I think a lot of their success will depend on the style of the teams that they go to..

My boy Flynn isn't the best but he will be a beast some day. I love watching him play.

Rubio could be another Baragnanni.
Overseas player. Seems amazing. Goes high in draft. Plays fairly well but not worth as high if a pick as we was taken.
Harden, I think Hasheem Thabeet will do well.
Tyler Hansbrough could be real good on the right team.

He's got great length. If he measures 6'9, I really wouldn't be surprised, the guy looks like a gangly mofo out there. If he could develop some high post moves (I feel playing in the high post suits his game more, than playing in the low post does), then he should be a fine NBA player.

I don't think he is quite a top 5 player yet, but who knows, with this draft class, he could go any where.

To Earl Clark is the most overrated player in this draft, i think people are just overhyping him. He is a decent player but people make like he is going to something special in NBA just because he is 6-9 and can play SF. He is an avarage player who wont be anything special, i see a slightly poor man version of Thadeus Young or Marvin Williams.

Ricky is indeed the best player in the draft. His contract situation can be sticky. A good PG comes once in a while, but you can always find a competant SG or PF.
