Default 2011 Draft class predictions..

Let's predict the busts and studs shall we?

I hope all of these players the best but if I have to predict what will happen to them as NBA players... here's what I think..

BUSTS:

Brandon Knight - he's a POINTS guard, chucks way too much..

Jonas Valanciunas - I don't think he's NBA ready.. and his post moves are limited

Tristan Thompson - He's good, but he's inconsistent and he could be lazy on the boards if he's not getting the ball

STUDS:

Kawhi Leonard - He has big hands and is powerful and always plays with aggressiveness.. plus, he's good on the open court

Alec Burks - athletic, great finisher, has the leaping ability, explosive and a good defender

I kinda disagree with Valanciunas on this one. He's just turned 19, this season was his first experience in a really good club and he played a major role(I didn't expect he would get). I think he shouldn't go to the NBA right away, maybe at 21, and by that time I think his development will be very evident and he'll be able to be a great rebounding, low post scorer. At his peak he could be somewhere around 18-10.

Busts:

Valanciunas - He's just not ready, and I really don't see how he's that special. He'll be a solid rebounder at best in the NBA.

Thompson - He'll just be another NBA PF with potential who has never reached it.

Steals/Studs:

Walker - The guy is going to be a top 3 talent in this draft.

Leonard - He has a great game and really reminds me of Gerald Wallace, he'll have a long career.

Motiejunas - He won't be a defensive stalwart but he will be a good scorer in the league, think of a less rebounding a little bit more defensive Troy Murphy.

Honeycutt - He's going to make a living in the NBA by just being that hustle guy off the bench with intangibles.

Marshon Brooks - Will be a top 5 talent in this draft, he can be really good in the NBA.

Kenneth Faried - Think of a more athletic, less body fat, and defensive minded Dejuan Blair. Or maybe even an athletic and more willing to score Reggie Evans.
