I like how people are putting down Jason Thompson when they haven't seen the guy play a single minute in the NCAA.

D Cups
Kevin Love-He comes to the NBA withh a set of nice C's. After a year of hitting buffets on the road for a year he will get back to his D cup glory.

Nathan Jawai-He has a plump bust. That will only get jucier as time goes on.

C Cups
Brook Lopez-With a name like Brook how could he not develop a decent chest game.

Robin-see above.

B Cups
Anthony Randolph-I know this sounds like a stretch but Randy will eventually be a moderately endowed young man.

Pat Riley's body language tells the story. He drafted the Kwame Brown of this year's draft in Micheal Beasley.

The Knick's pick of Bargani 2.0 in Gallinari is seconded.

OJ Mayo will struggle to guard Kobe, Baron Davis, D Wade etc. His shot
will be inconsistent. His TOs will be more than 3 a game. The problem
is that OJ does not fit Memphis or the Western Conference. I see him
as an Eastern Conference player. He would do much better in New York
playing next to Jason Kidd.

Beasley will not be the next Kwame Brown. No way. I think he will be a stud in the NBA.

I have a feeling Gallinari will be better than Bargnani, but still won't be worthy where he was drafted.

I agree that Mayo is a potential bust. I just don't think he will live up to the hype.


I think Westbrook will really struggle trying to be a PG. He's an athletic slasher, and defensive minded player. Not worthy of the 4th pick. I could see him turning into a solid role player.

i have a feeling that javale mcgee will be a bust... even for being picked 18th i think he will be a bust. someone with his size and athleticism must really not know how to play if they arent picked in the lottery.

Most people just copy whatever the analysts are saying. Another thing I have noticed over the years is people that were said to be drafted a lil too high are automatically deemed busts and players that fell are automatically deemed studs.

Gordon, Westbrook, Randolph.

Beasley won't end up being the 2nd best player in this draft.

Jason Thompson is no joke. He's probably one of the most refined bigmen in the league. I had the pleasure of seeing him live several times this year..If he keeps up the work ethic, he may end up the best big man in the draft. Guy has more power moves and none of that fadeaway bull**** that all bigmen are trying to do now.

Kevin Love-He had trouble with athletic bigs in college, and his workout numbers are a mirage. If a guy is not athletic on tape his not athletic period.

Brook Lopez-Stanford Bigman

Studs
Mike Beasley-Will get it done on the NBA level. Pat had you mofos going.

Walter Sharpe-I thought he was going back to school. Joey D has done it again. He has lottery talent, but has a past. Is a more skilled player than all the bigs drafted not named Beasley.

Darrell Arthur-The slipping he indured may have placed a much-needed chip on his shoulder. Look for him to beast.
