i like some of your picks- im interested in hudson- i think you are right on bill walker

rose is the best prospect since lebron- better than oden, better than durant, a whole lot better of an nba prospect than beasley- i dont get the back and forth at #1- i guess i see that beasley is also a cant miss as the second best prospect-nearly a for sure all-star-

rose is at another level as a prospect- but after beasley my next 2 guys are
-b lopez is imo right now being very underrated on this board- this guy was the most dominant player in the pac 10- when he was going good he was unstoppable- i actually believe his best comparison game-wise is tim duncan- im not saying he will continue and develop as far as duncan, but i do believe lopez is a 15 & 8 guy tommorow- lopez and al jefferson would play off of each other so perfect imo

westbrook is not necesarrily being underrated or overrated- westbrook IS the best defensive gaurd ive seen come into a draft- his personality seems perfect, never says a word, doesnt show any emotion at all- he will just have to become a more vocal leader to play point- but goes like crazy all the time and never says a word? add that to being an athletic freak- will be able to run and jump against anybody in the league from day 1- and does this with a 6-4 super long armed frame- trading for westbrook is the key to teams like denver, portland, and phoenix who want to compete over the next 10 years with c paul, williams,& tony parker


my other 2 "sleepers" are alexis ajinca (who i think is a future all start) and joey dorsey (who i think is a day 1 impact player- this guy would get minutes on any nba team)

oh thanks for mentioning Eric Gordon. I don't think he will be a bust.

Clippers will be better next season

Livingston (if he's back)/Gordon/smush
Gordon/Mobley
Thornton/Magette( if he stays)
Brand/Thornton/Kaman
Kaman/ fazekas/ Davis

if everyone stays healthy could hit the playoffs next season..

I agree. I think they'll improve. Highly doubt the playoffs are in their future given the depth of the West, but Thornton is a grown man.

Patrick Ewing Jr. was my least favorite player in CBB, I hope he's a sixth man...in the D-league.
