JJ Hickson

Hickson is considered one of the strongest prospects in this draft class. I'd stick him in there at #5. Perhaps have a seperate 'Strength' category for guards.

 Great lists!

oj mayo

y do u guys continue to disrespect oj mayo. how come he is not in there with the most athletic, explosive, and quickest guards. did he not record on of the best vertical jumps in the orlando pre-draft camp, did he not have one of the fastest time in the sprints, so y do u guys continuissly suck derrick roses dick. dont get me wrong he is gud and he shuld have a great nba career, but there is no denying that besides mike beasley, oj mayo is the next possible candidate for rookie of the year, he is capable of bieng a lockdown defender, and im confident that in a system like miami where dwyane wade can create his own shots and will do most of the ball handling anyway, mayo would thrive at point gaurd. i see him as a stephon marbury with a better jump shot. sure he didnt always make the best decisions, but this is the perfect place for him he could learn under dwyane wade. dwyane wade seems to think that oj would fit in well. and quite frankly i he has wades trust then y not.

no love for oj mayo

tell me why you guys continue to diss oj. if im mistaken, he did have one of the highest vertical jump at the orlando predraft camp, and he did time in with one of fastest time for gaurds also.so why is he not in there with the most athletic and most quick guards when he posted better times and numbers then them. all i have to say is quit sucking derrick rose's penis. real talk

Teammates Malik Hairston and Maarty Luenen unexpectedly heard their names called but Taylor didn’t.
