Crawford 'tried' to enter the draft, but sent in his letter too late, so the NBA did not accept it. He ended up serving an 8 game suspension for it (following an initial 6 game suspension for accepting room and board while in high school). So, he was suspended for 14 games during his only year at Michigan.

I would easily take John Wall over Blake Griffin. John Wall is a once in a decade talent, a better passing derrick rose.

Too bad he isn't eligible this year.

I already have a player in mind who will be a NBA superstar and I have been on his bandwagon for awhile, but you clowns will have to wait to find out.

How am I wrong?

An elite PG prospect almost always goes above an elite PF prospect.

Most people don't know of John Wall and his talent because he hasn't played college basketball yet and gained the nationwide attention, but off of talent & potential alone he is on par with Derrick Rose.

Wall projects as a better scorer than Rose, because he actually gets hot from the perimeter and can become unstoppable, while Rose has yet to develop a consistent outside shot.

If Wall enters along with Rubio & Young Money.

That would be the best crop of PG prospects in NBA History in a Draft.

This kid is simply amazing.

I saw a couple games before and his game is just like Wade's. He moves like Wade, he blocks like Wade, he even shoots like Wade. He should go to college for a year though, he still needs to learn a bit but he will have a really bright NBA future.

oh my god. he is unreal. i cant believe i hadn't heard of him. He is like a more athletic Dwayne Wade... with great passing ability (so it looks)

i am rarely impressed by high school highlight reels, but I am sold on John Wall (although highlight reels don't tell the whole story, or Stromile Swift would actually be good)

He is a beast though, that much is obvious. Super athletic, good with both hands, quick, great leaper, good passer. sorry Blake Griffin, this is the guy.

1. He won't, you're just going crazy because you just now found aout that he's a 5th year senior.

2. Give me Deron/Paul over anything in this draft.

this is a really stupid statment. lets hear these examples where elite pgs get drafted high. if anything, teams skew to drafting big over smalls. you are so wrong here.bogut and marvin were drafted over paul and williams when it was virtually consensus that paul was the best player at the time and for the future.

theres so many examples of bigs being reached for in the draft (kwame/kenyon/kandi) - do some research before you bring the attitude

An elite C prospect goes over an elite PG prospect.

Thats the reason why Bogut went #1, because he could provide more if he developed into the player Milwaukee thought he could become.

Maybe you were under a rock but Chris Paul was viewed as a great PG prospect but not the best player in the Draft, but Marvin Williams at the time was viewed as a high potential SF who could become a future #2 option for the Hawks.
However,even at that time people didn't agree with the pick considering Chris Paul would have filled a need for Atlanta.

Not everyone expected Paul to become as great of a player he is now in which he is considered an All-Time Great PG.

Kwame=Elite C prospect
There was no Elite PG prospect in the 2001 NBA Draft.
Kenyon Martin=Elite PF prospect
There was no Elite PG prospect in the 2000 NBA Draft.
Micheal Olowokandi=Elite C prospect
Clippers picked Kandi Man over an Elite PG prospect like Bibby because when there is a top C prospect available its almost natural to take them over a PG and its always been that way in the NBA.
