will new orleans get an automatic A for draft day grades?
it seems like whenever their is a consensus #1 pick overall the team that drafts first always gets an A for making the same pick a monkey could do.
im not saying the hornets shouldnt necessarily get an A but they need to earn it by making smart picks/trades later on...not simply getting the automatic A for getting lucky a few weeks ago, then showing up and handing stern a note that a trained monkey could have also done.
eg, 1997 draft. spurs had one pick. #1. tim duncan. they literally showed up, handed a piece of paper with duncan's name on it (which was written months before the draft), then left. not "A" worthy IMO - more of an "INC" grade.
so does new orleans get the A for picking davis?
