Curry actually has some handles and passing ability...

How is that similar to J.J. Reddick besides shooting and basketball IQ?

Either way best prospects are Clark,Curry,Flynn,Jennings and Griffin of course.

Best steals will be Sam Young,Darren Collison,AJ Price and Damion James.

Draft is not great but you can find a couple of gems.

Curry will make many people eat crow. They'll end up arguing for Curry in threads acting like they werent believers prior.

And most of the 2009 draft prospects are not scrubs.

Just look at how that is treating JJ Reddick.

I've been reading about Rubio for years, but I simply haven't seen enough of him on the court.

I agree with GiveItToBurrito that Jennings' year in Italy has probably helped him mature - probably even more so than a freshman year of college where he would've been the BMOC would have been. The next Telfair??? OUCH!!!

Curry is similar to Langdon... the difference is, he can pass the ball... Langdon could not. Langdon could never convert his game to the PG position, and the league back then was not kind to tweeners when you had such dominant big men @ 7'0+ still in the NBA and more physical guards. It also didn't help that that Cavs team really sucked, and he was expected to be a key scoring option 6th man while they were rebuilding.

Curry will be a solid complimentary player in a few years... although I don't think he will shine as a ROY candidate.

And Chandler is a very solid center... but even in hindsight... you must admit, he was a complete was of a 2nd pick when there were 'franchise players' available after him. But I guess with this being such a shallow draft pool, you can't really argue with Thabeet going to a top 3 pick. There's not much else worth it.

What are you trying to prove with that comment?
Stromile Swift is also one of the most athletic forwards ever, as is Tyrus Thomas, as is Darvin Ham.

Griffin will be a Kenyon Martin type in the league, which is pretty darn good - especially if he didnt get injured.

Curry's career will be determined by his speed and defensive abilities. I'm leaning towards a Michael Adams type career.

I love the big fella Thabeet. Although he desperately needs to become more powerful around the basket. Give him 3 years of strengthening and he will be fine.

If I was Rubio, I would stay in Europe and enjoy my life.

I agree about Griffin. He will be a good player, but not a 'great' player. I don't forsee more than 3 of these guys being a main franchise piece...

Thabeet can be good... but after looking at all the past top 7'0"+ draft picks that were heavily hyped out of college... from the Olawakandis down to the Currys... I'm just not optimistic that he will really push himself to that next level like Howard did.

And I also agree that Rubio will find he enjoyed euro ball much better similar to Darko Milicic, and will be longing to play again as soon as his rookie contract is up.

Blake Griffin will have a better career than Michael Beasley because he's one of the most athletic player in his draft class, and He's already NBA Ready.

HAHAHAHA. You pick 2 games out of the 35 he played and shove it to people as the truth. Blair was a bad matchup as he was to everyone, he ate everyone up. This is like a person saying about X player "he is a bad defender because Kobe dropped 40 on him", which was expected. Keep in mind Thabeet has only been playing basketball since 15... lots of room to grow. Now, I will say Thabeet is a pansy around the rim but once he decides to dunk the ball he is very capable of averaging a double double with 3-4 blocks.

I can't believe people think Curry'd get iso'd. He won't be able to get open without a screen in the NBA. I think he's got a role in the NBA, but I'm amazed he's rated so high in some mocks, he's a early 20s pick at best. I just don't think his game'll translate.

I do think Donnie Walsh saying he wants him is a smokescreen, certainly wouldn't be the first time.

This.

Curry is a role player at best, there is no way he should be going Lottery outside of him having big games last season in the NCAA Tournament.

Lester Hudson is a much better player but wont even get drafted.

I swear 1/3 of GM's only watch ESPN to scout basketball players.

We would have a much better idea of him had he transfered to Duke after his freshman year like his brother did.
