Analyzing the 2010 NBA Draft
So far, how would you guys evaluate the players in the 2010 Draft, like the expectations coming in, and what they're doing now, and what they could progress to.
#1 - John Wall - Had a pretty solid season with the Wizards, not a very good supporting cast, but I think you can build around Wall.
#2 - Evan Turner - Evan needs to really work on the jump shot over the summer, started off the year with a disappointment, still pretty up and down so far this year.
#3 - Derrick Favors - Needs a year or two to get some experience, work on his game, youngest player in the NBA at 19, still has a lot of upside, hard to tell whether how good he will be or not.
#4 - Wesley Johnson - Haven't seen a lot of him, but he seems to have disappointed me a little bit, jump shoot has really struggled lately from what I heard around when watching the Jazz game tonight.
#5 - DeMarcus Cousins - He looks like he could be the best player in the draft aside from Wall, if he can cure those on court attitude, he can be a special player.
#6 - Ekpe Udoh - Seems to be a bit of a disappointment, seems more of a defense and rebounding type guy more than the offense.
#7 - Greg Monroe - Really turning into a good player with the Pistons, might be the only bright spot on the team aside from Jerebko.
#8 - Al Farouq-Aminu - Seems like he could be a decent player, but has had a season a bit similar to Wes Johnson.
#9 - Gordon Hayward - Really started off the year as a big disappointment, he's starting to turn the corner though when giving minutes with us (the Jazz), showing signs of being good.
#10 - Paul George - Looking like he might be a better pick than Hayward, putting up good numbers under Vogel.
Other players that have exceeded expectations to me, Ed Davis, Pat Patterson, and Landry Fields having an amazing season for the #39th pick in the draft.
