2012 NBA Draft : At least 20 guys will eventually average 15 ppg before their careers are over

From #1 Anthony Davis to #21 Jared Sullinger, with only exceptions being maybe Kendall Marshall and possibly Royce White, their will be at least 20 guys who average 15 points per game at least once in their career. IDK were you can find out info like that but this has to be unprecedented.

For years their was expectations that last years draft would be deep and the lock out helped but this was a great draft.

I don't think we will see one this deep for a decade.

At my guess I believe about

At my guess I believe about 8-13 players will ave at least 15ppg at least once in their career.

But I do definitely agree with you it was a great class. Anthony Davis could very well be headed for the HOF. They may not be too many "all-star" players but there are plenty of good quality players. This draft was deep and solid....

Definitely has that

Definitely has that potential.

You have to remember, the 2012 draft class was pretty much the 2011+2012 since most college players did not want to go to the NBA because of the CBA disputes.

It's so deep because it is essentially two drafts in one.

I agree TOL23 but Sully, PJ3,TJones and Barnes weren't ready

and they weren't high picks in this draft. They slid under all the new freshman that came in. The lockout played its part but they might have waited regardless.

Can I just say, that

Can I just say, that emasculation Barnes performed on Pekovic has made him my 1B behind Waiters as favorite players from this class? I want more dunks like that.

Not just the dunk

he took AK47 and Shved to the rack from the top of the key two or three times. I would put him 1B too if he dribbled all the way to the hole more.
