Re: Who is the biggest threat to overtake Blake Griffin for #1 overall?
As the college season comes to an end, I think we can start to see how things should be shaping up. To me Rubio is still the #2 guy just because he plays PG. If a team needs a PG and not a big I think he could be the guy. After that I think Monroe might have the most upside and star potential. When you project how good the top guys will be, I think Monroe may have the highest ceiling in the eyes of a lot of GM's. Those are the only 2 I can see getting the #1 pick.
I think the buy with the best outside shot is Thabeet because he has something you don't find often, and that is a 7-3 body with a decent amount of skill. Guys like Harden, Jennings, Teague may have for more talent, but they don't bring anything different.
