What a dumb statement, you pick the 2 top PG's in the NBA and then say you would rather have them over PG's who havent even played in the NBA.

Give these guys some time before we see how good of a player they are.

Yeah, because you know something about dumb statements.
You crown this the best PG crop ever even though you haven't seen any of them play more than an all star game (maybe more with Rubio but i doubt it)

There was no buzz around it because there was no way he could have fought for eligibility because he attended a 4 year HS, challenging the NBA would have been like Mo Clarrett challenging the NBA.

You're clearly forgetting Evans,Flynn,Lawson,Maynor,Teague,Mills,& Curry.

Add that to those 3 Elite PG prospects and yes this is the best PG crop ever.

Default Re: Blake Griffin Won't Be The #1 Pick In The 2009 NBA Draft

i don't see him being picked ahead of blake

however

if i was picking i would grab wall over anybody!

i just think he's a special talent, and i see more potential in him then even derrick rose! yes i said it!!!! i think he's just one of those special players ala kobe, wade, bron

i think wall should be the consensus #1 overall pick whenever he decides too come out

Evans will end up playing the 2. Lawson won't be a legit starter in the league. There's hope for Flynn and Teague, and the other 3 are good college players that won't be more than backups.


Give me Paul/Deron/Felton/Jack/Robinson/Ellis/Louis Williams

Interesting find. I doubt he makes into the draft, and even if he did he is not supplanting Blake. Regardless of Wall's potential (and I suspect he will be an amazing pro) his profile is so much lower than Blakes (coming off a dominate NCCA tournament), and he (Wall) has never proven himself against players that he wasn't substantially more physically mature than.

If he does declare I wouldn't be surprised if he cracked the top 5, he has that kind of talent, but there is no chance he knocks off Blake for the #1 pick.

Even then the 2005 NBA Draft PG class doesn't measure up with the potential 2009 NBA Draft PG class.

If we are going off of the class that features the most talented PG prospects before the NBA Draft, it has to be 2009.

We aren't talking about which class has had the most success.

This is THE class of future PG's if Wall enters.

2/10. I have seen better.




Anyway, how can you guys scout him based on a highlight tape from HS. All we have seen him done on that tape is jump and do some fancy passes

He's an elite talent, but lets not forget that having a highlight tape on youtube isn't really a hard thing to have. Anyone can have a highlight reel. If you put a compilation of my best moves in high school basketball I could have looked like a 4 star recruit.

Is that why most draft sites have him as the no.1 pick in 2010 draft
