Default Can this upcoming draft possibly live up to expectations?

espn is running a 'story' on this draft every other week, despite the fact that exum and smart are the only top prospects that have played any basketball the last couple months

can this draft possibly live up to expectations? it seems around march every year, people say its a weak draft, do you think it will happen again this year?

i usually love the draft stuff, but even for me, the coverage is complete overkill

i think there are gonna be a handful of teams that are gonna tank, and be dissapointed in what they get.

boston, philly, orlando, charlotte, utah, sacramento, and phoenix are all either tanking, or rebuilding, one of those teams is gonna end up with an isiah austin level player, and feel dumb for having thrown a season away.

You named 7 rebuilding teams. I bet either of those 7 teams would be happy with either Wiggins, Smart, Parker, Randle, Harrison PG, Gordon, or Exum.

most of the teams you mentioned are building up young guys anyway so would be tanking regardless.
