If you could be a scout...
what type of scout would you rather be?
"In the NBA, there are various types of scouts. There are College Personnel scouts- who watch prospective talent to decide if they are NBA level talent- there are NBA personnel scouts- who watch the NBA to help find current players who could become available in the league, and there are Advance Scouts. The Advance scout is directly responsible for advance scouting upcoming opponents and knowing their offenses, their defenses, their tendencies and their personnel."

I would most definitely go for 'NBA talent level' scout. You?
I think many of us would pick talent evaluator or incoming prospects. That is why we come to a draft website. I would love to go around the country evaluating young players. It would be a dream job. It would be tremendously stressful though. Millions of dollars at stake and years of progress could be lost if you're wrong.
I would love to be an international scout. It would be awesome to travel the world and find players in the most random of places. Also normally a lot of international guys go in the second round, so if you hit on one or 2 players you look really good.
Man any of these jobs would be a dream. But advance scout would be sweet. Scouting upcoming teams to give your team it's best chance at winnin
Plus you'd be around NBA players more. (sorry meant to be in one post) just my take.
Being a scout would is my absolute dream job.
I would love to be a college prospect scout.
I always wanted to be an NFL prospect scout before finding out what they actually do when I met one. They travel the country to the school of the prospect they are scouting, they meet with the coach or someone else important like that, and then watch the teams game film of the player for hours upon hours. They don't even meet the kid in person, so that's when I gave that dream up.
I'd love to be the guy behind the scenes, not neccesarily a scout, but a GM or exec sort of job, that would be my dream job, being able to make decisions on who to sign, draft, and trade. That really appeals to me.
