The 2007 recruiting class fulfilling its promise..
Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo, James Harden, Kevin Love, Deandre Jordan, Blake Griffin, Evan Turner, Jeff Teague, Patrick Patterson all fulfilling their potential or are starting to. All Rivals top 150 recruits.
That list above doesn't include the likes of Festus Ezeli, James Johnson, Dejaun Blair, Nolan Smith, E'Tuan Moore, Cole Aldrich, Jerryd Bayless, J.J Hickson, Kyle Singler, and Michael Beasley who could still become serviceable or good players.
And the previous list doesn't include the likes of Mike Scott, Robert Sacre, James Anderson, Cole Aldrich, Jajuan Johnson, Austin Daye, Jonny Flynn, Craig Brackins, Kosta Koufos, Anthony Randolph, Bill Walker, Donte Green. Guys who are either deep on teams benches, in the D-League or are out of the league but have great chances of coming back. Some of these players have even had big performances. (Flynn, Randolph, Walker and Green.)
The 2007 recruiting class was deep and they are showing off that talent int he NBA.
Can't forget Eric Gordon. Nice name BTW.
I remembered him but they didn't allow me to edit it, so I knew someone would fix it for me. Thanks.
Hate to be that guy, but you said Cole Aldrich twice
But you're right, crazy how much talent came from that class
And I hate to be that guy too... but you said Festus Ezeli... He was drafted this year.
He isn't talking about the draft class *facepalm* He's talking about the recruit class. As in out of high school.
Come on man!( in my Cris Carter voice) you making us Raptors fans look bad!!!
I'm an idiot. Should have read it better before assuming
Kosta Koufos is getting 21.5 mpg and starting..that's not deep in the bench , that's almost 6th man minutes
I put Koufos there because for his career he's averaging less than 12 minutes a game, and in his limited action this season, he still has to share the Center position with 2 other players. Mozgov and Mcgee, and honestly he's the 3rd guy in that triumvirate.
you forgot jerryd bayless
