This draft has the best PG crop in ever ever...do you understand EVER!!!!!!!
Mayo
Rose
Lawson
Collison
Bayless(a monster as well)
Jamont Gordon

not to menton the Seniors
Ronald Steele(if he comes back healthy and returns to pre-injury form could be a Top 15 pick)
Sean Singletary

Ben Gordon already got hops. To me Eric Gordon looks like Mitch Richmond a lot.

And imo Paul, Felton, Deron >> the next draft. Mayo, I see him becoming a Marbury type.

about as much as Larry Hughes has...

My prediction is OJ Mayo will never start an all star game and prob only make 1-2 tops...This dude is just vastly overrated or WAS vastly overrated.

OJ "16 points @ UCLA" Mayo

Mayo is Gilbert Arenas jr w/Superstar Hype.

Mayo will have to learn over time that he is not a distributing PG and will not make anyone better in the NBA,his job will be to push the ball up the court and score.

In the right situation,Mayo will make 10-12 All Star Games and compete for 5-7 Scoring Titles.

OJ Mayo is nowhere near as bad as Larry Hughes has become.

How is OJ Mayo overrated?

Did you really think he was going to average 35 PPG/10/6 at USC?

No, but I did think he would prove his worth for the first overall pick. So far he has failed.

he was freakin compared to the best sg in the league as a prospect... I had guys on here tell me he is the same caliber athlete as a young Kobe...Tell me he could be a better scorer... Then people act like he can just turn into Gilbert Arenas like its easy... He was susposed to be the "savior" of USC and one of the best players in the country... Right now he prob isnt even an all american or close to it... And dont act like it cant be done, the top prospects like Durant and Oden dominated college, look at Beasley...where is OJ Mayo, who at one time was called the next Lebron??

If that isnt overrated then I dont know what it is??

when usc plays a solid team that actually plays decent defense, mayo chucks bricks. and that's single coverage. i think when he hits the nba and draws tough defenders and double teams, he'll barely crack 40% from the field.

Kapono is a tough dude. If he were a softie, he wouldn't have said something like "I could've changed my name to Vladimir Kaponovic and could've gone in the lottery".

I see people are already jumping off the OJ bandwagon.

You talk about fickle.

Durant puts up all-time numbers for a freshman and 80% of this board hailed him as an future NBA Great. Now OJ is playing within the system and you got dudes saying he's 'overrated'.

Funny.

Again, this is why I'm me, and you're you. I do my homework. I see inside the numbers. I evaluate talent with the keennest of eye. Obviously you people do none of this. You see a few games here and there and want to make extreme decisions based on irrelevant statistical boxscores.

Believe this, is anyone from this draft can be great, it will be OJ Mayo. I'm not saying he will be great, but his ceiling blows the rest of these cats out the water. He just big/strong/quick/explosive/composed enough to do anything he wants on the court. He doesn't need a position cause he is the position. If he's at point, he has to much strenght and size. Try to defend him at the SG position, and he'll use his quickness and in between game to eat you up. Plus he's a quality passer at whatever position he plays.

You dudes are too funny. Learn to make your own decisions and guage talent with your own eyes. If you thought Durant would a great in the NBA, then should really be saying the same Mayo, not because of a few freshman college games, but because HIS INDIVIDUAL SKILLSET TRANSLATES AT THE PRO BETTER.

As a pro Mayo > Durant.

Easy call here. Talk to me when you see the same.

you dont even understand his skill set...

either you havent seen him play much or you are horrible at evaluating talent..OJ Mayo has a decent first step, he isnt blowing by any1 and has trouble getting where he wants on the floor against mediocre teams in D1... he isnt big and if you think he is blowing by nba 2 guards you are joking...He cant even blow by dudes in NCAA in single coverage...
