Default Top 5 Soon To Be Draftees You Wanna Watch In The NBA

1. Joe Alexander - Wishing he would stay in college. However, he is freakishly athletic and great with a guy on his back and in his face.

2. OJ Mayo - If put in the right situation, I think he could put up close to 20 ppg.

3. Bill Walker - Was projected a top 5 pick at one point. Injuries lowered that but I expect him to be an extremely productive NBA player.

4. Kevin Love - Unlike many, I think he will be a pretty decent pro.

5. Darren Collison - Wicked fast and a great defender. Should be a pretty good pro.

I've never been impressed with Beasley and all the rest of the guys at the front of the draft. When you see them enough in the NCAA, then you can just read the numbers and have an idea of how they're going to look in the NBA. Obviously, numbers don't tell the whole story, but when you're generally just not interested, then they tell a good percentage of it.

Anyway my guys:

Nathan Jawai - Australia
Bill Walker - Kansas State
Richard Hendrix - Alabama
Danillo Galinari - Italy
Omer Asik - Turkey

Bill Walker here too, along with the other 2 studs from the state of West Virginia..OJ Mayo (Of course) and Patrick Patterson (he'll prolly come back since he's hurt this year, but he'll be a good pro)
