2000 was easily the worst draft ever. Michael Redd is, by far, the best player to come out of that draft and he's hardly an all-time great. Kenyon Martin is the 2nd best player and he's nothing too special. The 3rd best player is probably Jamal Crawford and after that it's nothing but flawed role players like Mason, Turkoglu, Miles, Magloire, Przybilla and Q-Richardson.

There were maybe 10-15 guys in that draft that you'd even want in your team's 10 man rotation. The draft will probably end up with 4-5 all star appearances as a group (Redd and Martin each have one and so does Magloire. Redd'll maybe go another time or two, but that will likely be it.). 2003 has at least 4 guys that will each get more than that and 2 of them figure to each at least double that total.

2000 was pretty bad. There were a few gems there, but a lot of disappointment. Players who should've been better, but never improved or had any passion for the game.

Mateen Cleaves really disappointed me. I wasn't expecting him to be a star, but I expected him to a solid backup/spot starter for a team.

Funny thing about this is that he was selected in the 2ND round.

I don't think this draft is bad at all.

But I know what people mean when they say it's bad.

There are no home run picks. Not really any automatic table turners. There wasn't supposed to be last year either, but we were fortunate enough to get Chris Paul. Bogut still has time to step up as well.

I think the past two drafts are very similar.

You will find 3 superstars in this draft. Rudy Gay, Andrea Bargnani, and Randy Foye. This is an underrated draft class and will feature less busts because most players in this draft are actually ready for the NBA.

Wow. I had no idea how awful that draft was. Does anybody remember how they felt about the draft before they looked back and realized how bad it would be? I was 10 or 11 so I wasn't watching drafts then.

I don't think it'll be the worst draft ever, but you won't see many superstar players come out of it.

These sort of predictions are stupid.

Never underrate a young basketball player, that is a lesson for the NBA fan.

Adam Morrison will be a borderline allstar i nthe mold of Melo at least.

Randy Foye will be good

Brandon Roy will be good

Rudy Gay will really surpise people

Shelden Williams will really suprise people

Andrea Bargani will be average

Lamarcus Aldridge and Tyrus Thomas are both huge question marks. I have this feeling that Aldridge will be complacent and Thomas will work his butt of to be good.

Yeah. It's got nothing on 2000. When all you can see are role players 6 years down the track you know it's bad. Possibly the worst lottery ever. Wasn't Marc Jackson considered as a potential rookie of the year out of that draft?

In retrospect, the 2000 is just absolutely awful. Real lack of future HOFs in that draft.

This draft LOOKS bad, but really you have to give it four-five years to see how players develop. Who knows? Maybe these players turn out to be HOFs. It's hard to tell....

But NBA Draft of 2007 will be something special. They say the best draft in a decade.
