Its crazy for some of you people to think that anyone in this draft except Blake Griffin can come in as a rookie and make a big impact on a playoff team. People who think Chicago or LA shoud hoard picks are crazy. One rookie would be lucky to crack the rotation of a contender, much less 3 or 4.
I disagree, I think there are a lot of guys that can contribute immediately on a playoff team.
Griffin. Harden going to the Wizards makes them a playoff team.
There are always late 1st rounder that have an impact on a playoff teams roster, role players the good coaches in the league find roles for players. That is why the good teams make the playoffs for so many years in arow.
Harden, Griffin, Curry, Rubio, Clark and a few other will be contributers in this league next year.
Courtney is the starting 2 guard for orlando throughout the playoffs(when he wasn't injured) He had a big impact this year as a rookie.
This draft isn't big on star power, but there are still guys in the second half of the first round who can play.
So all of you think a rookie in this draft can make it into the Laker's rotation?
There is always an opportunity for players to get PT all you have to do is, perform. Ask Morrow, M. Taylor, Mbah even Batum got minutes. Cracking a title contender's roster is obviously more difficult.
id have to disagree with u.. i think there are players that will make an impact on an nba team maybe not all starters in there first year but i think there r a lot of possibly good role players in this draft. maybe not the Lakers but some other teams.. they culd easily crack the rotation and bring some quality PT. i think it all depends on the team the players get drafted too like how deep the team already is.
