When you call readers

When you call readers "Haters" in a story. They could leave PRETTY quickly.

The real deal is: You didn't even explain why Barnes is your 6th prospect, just ripping the "Haters" out there. Other then that, you don't list why these players are ranked where they are and your leaving EVERY post with the "......" angle. Not a good look.

As a fellow writer myself, I say good luck but the fact you called people who disagree Haters and not explain it will get you laughed at.

Barnes 6th?

He is by far the best prospect in college basketball. I like Irving a lot as well, but I don't see an elite pg prospect. Perry Jones has far more upside than John Henson (and im a UNC fan). Lastly, Kemba Walker is too high and Scotty Hopson is WAY too high. Besides that, solid list man.

thank you

see what good manners gets you Quincey???? I think Henson is going to shine hard this year now that he has a year of prep and a decent team around him....well more than a decent team, maybe the best in America....Perry is similar to Henson last year.....he is very raw still....and I have a man crush on Kemba Walker, sorry....

I meant Quentin

because he's just not as good.....a step below the whole 5 people above him...he doesn't suck or anything.....lots of people would love to be the 6th pick in the draft.....

Sometimes when you make

Sometimes when you make "Rankings" you dont rank just on your in depth inalysis but also on popular belief, that way people agree with you more and read up more next time...SO you think Barnes wont be Number 1, put him before Knight beause Knight is the 2nd best PG, put him before Vesely because he is European (most of your readers are American and dont like the fact you put Barnes behind an unknown Euro Pro). If you think he isnt Number 1 dont fall short of number 3 when he is consensus #1, looks bad on you.

Kanter is better then Sulli IMO but injuries maybe a factor.

Cory Joseph is going to stay IMO because Texas will have a very bad year and look to build and get better by picking up a good C and Kabongo. If anything Thompson will go before Joseph.

Burks is Top 10 right now.

SO much I wouldve changed.

I don't know really know how

I don't know really know how to say this...these rankings suck. Like nothing is really explained and overall it is just extremely poor compared to what most EXPERTS think. Good luck with your picks though...you'll need it...

It wasn't that bad. It's just your ideas seem so far fetched and you didn't really give us a good reason to buy in. If you explained your opinions a little more than one or two sentences, it would be much easier to take them seriously.

They certainly are ambitious, and it's kind of nice to see someone go against the grain. But right now you are the NBADraft.net equivalent of a drunken hobo.

Keep writing man. Just fine-tune your presentation.
