The 2009 NBA Draft

People say this draft will be horrible and such, but who would you compare your top ten prospects in your mock draft to when they are at the peak of their career?

Mine are:

1. Blake Griffin-Dwight Howard (less strength)
2. Hasheem Thabeet-Dikembe Mutombo
3. James Harden-Kobe Bryant (I usually would never put Wade, James, or Bryant with another name)
4. Ricky Rubio-Tony Parker
5. Jordan Hill-Amare Stoudemire (a stretch)
6. Tyreke Evans-Tracy McGrady
7. Jonny Flynn-Allen Iverson
8. Jrue Holiday-Dwyane Wade (same with #3)
9. Demar DeRozan-Vince Carter
10. Jeff Teague-Russell Westbrook

I know the comparisons of Harden and Holiday aren't the best, but they're my players that I think that will develop and have the best NBA career in the draft.
