Default Next year, this draft class is going to swamp everyone

"swamp" meaning they are going to make almost everyone look bad because this draft class is deeper than ever. Rose, Mayo, Beasley the big 3 and there are some not mentioned, Brook Lopez, Westbrook, etc. You can tell this draft class is giving the NBA a good future.. anyone else agree everyone is going to break out?

Are you trying to say that this class is better than 03 or 84 or 96?

Agreed.

Rose has the talent, but not the persona.
Beasley has the persona, but IMO won't take his talent to all-NBA levels.
Mayo has the hype and casual fan recognition, but also won't be all-NBA talent.

Rose and Mayo will be All-Stars, as is likely that Beasley will get there too, but I don't see a combination of talent and marketability to produce a true megastar

This class will go down as the best Draft ever. better than 96 03 84.

So many players that will be all stars and then off course you have Derrick Rose and OJ Mayo who are on a whole different level then anybody.

No chance that this class is better than 03. I am sorry usually I do not disagree completely with things you say, but this is one of the dumbest not PB or Kobe troll (aka Laker fan) comment I have seen. If you are going to try and say that the class is better you better have the proof, because if you do not I am going to bring it up.

Rose will be lucky to get to Wades level and that is only if he starts taking stereroids and trains with LeBron. Mayo is lucky to be Redd, and Beasley while is starti9ng to impress me will be lucky to get to the level of Boozer. This class is nowhere near 2003.

Yeah dumbass and don't mention the most impressive rookie imo the only one who may truly be the best in the nba some day. ERIC GORDON.

This class Rookie year as a whole is better than 2008 just look at the numbers

Both Melo and LeBron shot 41 % from the field as rookies Mayo was getting ragged on about his FG% and his is at 43.8% i believe not to mention he is alot better shooter from 3pt and ft line.

LeBron had 2 months were he averaged 4.5 Tos a game.

Rose and Mayo you could even argue Wesbrook numbers are better than Rookie Wade's.

I'm saying if you just look at rookie resumes 2008> 2003 to start there career. Not to mention this draft is a whole lot deeper.

Who in the 08 class is going to outperform Wade, LeBron, Bosh, and Melo?

Maybe Beasley could reach Melo status, but that's being optimistic. Maybe Gordon or Rose could reach Wade's status, but that's a serious stretch. Maybe Lopez could match Bosh... but I doubt it. Nobody in the 08 class is comparable to LeBron.

08 class is solid, but the 03 class is phenominal.
