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

as an Eastern Conference player. He would do much better in New York
playing next to Jason Kidd.
Mayo dropped 28 pts on Wade, while holding Wade to 5-14 shooting and 17 pts. The first fail. Shot inconsistent, he shot better than 39 % from 3pt line in 4 out of the 6 regular season months. The the eastern conference is p*ssy competition, I like when he goes up against the big boys out west like Brandon Roy, Manu, Kobe etc. He averaged 2.8 TPG, he needs to get that down though.

Average class, imo. Maybe worse than average.
Another Fail. This could be up there with the 96, 03, 84 Draft. Especially when Mayo because " The Next One". Beasley could easily but a walking 20+ and 10 guy. Eric Gordon has shown he is a big time player. Rose what can't we say about Rose.

Ben Gordon has to be one of the most underrated players in this League. While you guys were praising DRose, Gordon wasn't getting any love and he is a big time player very clutch.

If there was any bust in this draft it was Danilo. Saying a person oversees is better that our best HS players in Mayo, Rose, Beasley shows your level of intelligence. Rose will be better than Paul, and Williams also.

Beasley won't end up being the 2nd best player in this draft.
Well, I was definitely wrong about Gordon. I think my Illini-hate at the time shined too bright. I actually like Gordon quite a bit right now.
Westbrook, so far it seems I'm wrong but I'm going to be reserved. I think he's one of those guys who looks bright right now cause the team is bad, but down the line as they get better he won't be as instrumental. I really think people's opinions are going to change on him once OKC gets more nat'l TV time and as they get better.
And Randolph. He's shown flashes, but I'm still not sold on anything.
Sadly... Thabeet and Griffin is not gonna be able too push around guys like he did in college anymore plus he doesnt even have a post game wahtsoever but atleast a decent jumper but still gonna somewhat predict he'll be a bust well not a bust just not as good as he is thought too be.
