I remember watching footage of him while he was a highschool senior thinking he was going to be SUPERSTAR. Green had it all the shot, athleticism, handles, quickness, great height for a swingmen and the swag to be a NBA Superstar. His game reminded me of Tracy McGrady both had the size, athleticism, and the handles.
Than on the draft i remember him falling to the Celtics (Green was projected to be a top 10 pick) but fall to the 18th pick. I thought Boston got a steal with this pick.
I thought Deng was gonna be like a Pippen type of player
Greg Oden if it wasnt for his injuries i think he would be like the best center in the league.
Tyrus Thomas i didnt really see anything special about him when he was in LSU.
But i did read something on Christian Laetner being really soft in the NBA
Laetner was huge in college, sadly couldn't perform agt the same level in the NBA. Joe Smith, well, he's in the Lakers somewhere, I think as a waterboy. Harold Miner "Baby Jordan", he was the first "next Jordan" and now he's all fat, played like 5 seasons and because unemployed. Bobby Hurley was very good, suffered a really bad accident that cut his career short. He had great court vision.
