Hibbert, Mayo and Hasheem Thabeet look really talented.

Hasheem is Raw Potential
Hibbert has no athleticism at all
Mayo is a scoring PG/undersized SG who could average 20-25 ppg

Mayo may turn out to not be undersized depending on next years pre-draft camp. Who cares if Hibbert has no athletisism..neither do Duncan or Yao.

Mayo is a catch 22.

What if Mayo is draft by the Lakers next year? To become the next Magic Johnson or fail to get along well with Kobe?

1- Derrick Rose (6'4", 200 lbs) PG
-Strengths : great playmaker (court vision, unselfishness), great athlete (speed, hang time), mad handles, quick hands steals, one of the best PG of years to come
-Weaknesses : got to improve his shots


2- OJ Mayo (6'5", 210 lbs) SG/PG
-Strengths : tremendous all around skills, great creativity on a 1-on-1 battle, has great range
-Weaknesses : got to use his teammates


3- Michael Beasley (6'9", 235 lbs) SF/PF
-Strengths : terrific scorer with creativity, inside/outside threat, great athleticism, has a big potential
-Weaknesses : got to improve his defense, lacks of maturity


:) 4- Eric Gordon (6'4", 215 lbs) SG
-Strengths : best shooter of the draft, great body control, great scorer (averaged 28.0 pts/g)
-Weaknesses : questionnable size for a SG, not a good passer


5- Roy Hibbert (7'2", 278 lbs) C
-Strengths : good free throw shooter for a C, great size and strength, post skills
-Weaknesses : lacks of athleticism, fouls trouble

My favorite 2 are Thabeet and Hibbert. Too many combo guards..the only GREAT combo guard in the NBA is Wade who is pretty much just a shooting guard now. Rose seems very unselfish and could be very good. Thabeet has Mutombo type potential and Hibbert will be an all star center.

I really think Derrick Rose could surprise a lot of people and go #1 overall, rare opportunity for a guard. I actually think he's the better prospect over Mayo or Beasley.

For some reason I see the Pacers and Clippers picking #1 and #2 overall in 08, and both teams could seriously use a Rose or a Mayo. Beasley has a chance to be picked first, but from what I've seen and heard I think he's borderline retarded and his bad attitude won't help him. Also, he's attended six different high schools, which I doubt is by choice.

6'5" 210lbs is undersized for a 2? Since when?

I think he's assuming he's really 2 inches shorter than his listed height like Gilbert Arenas.

Lack of athletisism isn't a big problem. Look at how well Tim Duncan has done in the NBA!

I think Hibbert will be very good because of the 4 years in college. Watch out for Hibbert..he is more of a sure thing then Oden.
