Default "The worst class I've seen in the 25 years i've been doing this"

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...x.html?eref=T1

Article about how this year's incoming freshman is a major dropoff from last year's and the year before. The NBA will start to see less one and dones.

Not if they keep drafting them in the top 10. It's pretty unfair to compare any year to the 07 freshmen, that was probably the best freshman class ever.

We'll see less one-and-dones in years where there simply aren't that many great prospects, like this one. It's not going to be a trend. When there's a lot of really good prospects, like the '07 and '08 drafts, they'll go. When there's not, some of them might go anyway but not nearly as many.

Yeah 2009 is an extremely weak class outside of Lance Stephenson,Royce White,Derrick Favors,Karron Johnson & Renardo Sidney.

Most of the guys in that class project to be 2 & Thru players or 3/4 year starters in college.

Some people may throw John Wall into that list but he's completely not ready to go to the NBA after 1 year of college,he probably will since he'll be going into a good situation for him at Memphis or NC State.
