Is this the worst NBA draft ever
 
Two words. Hell yeah.

I made it simple because when I make threads it to hear your opinion.

brwnman 06-28-2006 01:09 AM

we don't know yet...

XxNeXuSxX 06-28-2006 01:10 AM

Why are you asking this? This is kind of rhetorical...

brwnman 06-28-2006 01:14 AM

I know...

ShannonElements 06-28-2006 01:18 AM

Well, since there's no way we can really answer that question, how about another one?

What WAS the worst NBA draft ever?

brwnman 06-28-2006 01:19 AM

I don't know...

ShannonElements 06-28-2006 01:20 AM

Me neither. Can't even begin to guess, actually...

23jordan23 06-28-2006 01:22 AM

r u talking bout the core of players???to answer ur question the core of players may not b the greatest ..but remember in drafts u can see alot of trades which means star players can b headed to new destinations..so for u to say it will b the worst draft even ..just chill n see wut happends..bcuz look out for alot of trades that all im sayin

KGtoGay2k6 06-28-2006 01:22 AM

im already goin to go ahead and say last years was nothing special

Chamberlain 06-28-2006 01:25 AM

This year seems to be the "Draft of the Role player", with a few exceptions. (2?)

artificial 06-28-2006 01:26 AM

At least state any reasons for why you think so. I mean, don't tell me you have no further opinions, conclusions nor reasons than "Hell yeah".

Try contributing, not posting the first fart that came out of your head.

Randy Foye and Brandon Roy are going to be superstars.
Adam Morrison won't be the next Larry Bird, but he should be better than Wally Z.
If Aldridge can add a little bit more muscle and refine his offensive game, he could be a very good power forward or center in this league.
If Rudy Gay gets with a team with a great motivator as head coach, he could be a really good player.
Tyrus Thomas could be a star if he works hard on his game and improves his perimeter shot, strength, and post game. He has come a long way in his basketball career. He should develop those skills in college, but he has a chance to develop in the NBA. I hope he does.
Shelden Williams is going to be a very effective player. His career should be very much like Emeka Okafor's, without all the injuries though.
Marcus Williams intrigues me.
Guys like Shannon Brown, Maurice Ager, Rodney Carney, Patrick O'Bryant and others have a lot of potential to be very good players.

I'm not as down on the talent in this draft as other people are. It may take a little bit more time for these players to come into their own as compared to previous classes with players who are a little more ready to be stars right away.

2001 was pretty crappy...i think that ranks #1 as the worst draft ever.

no superstars and only 5 players that are considers stars...

3.Pau Gasol, Spain
5.Jason Richardson, Michigan State
10.Joe Johnson, Arkansas
13.Richard Jefferson, Arizona
19.Zach Randolph, Michigan State
28.Tony Parker, France

2000 is also pretty crappy...so 2000, or 2001 take your pick.

It's a bad draft but it doesn't come near the atrocity that was the 2000 draft (see above post).
