I am starting to think scouts just throw out weak draft every year to try and save there job. I hear the same thing year after year no matter the prospects and year after year I see really good drafts. This years draft supposedly has no stars while last years was supposed to be the big time draft. I really believe thats crap. I believe that scouts just have fallen in love with the tall athletic point guard and the big small forward who can do it all. They have failed to realize that just because a guy can not jump out of the gym or have greatest measurements doesnt mean he is not the next great basketball player. Its almost like the scouts do not watch basketball games Kemba Walker just lead a young inexperienced Uconn team to the national championship. If thats not enough when have you seen Jim Calhoun given praise to another player such as hes done Kemba. Most times wen Jim Calhoun endorses a player like he has Kemba most times he turns into a real good nba player. A player doesn't have to be projected to go in top three to be a really good player. Rudy Gay wasn't a top three player. Also what about Kalin Lucas before he got hurt last year he was a suspected first round pick after one bad year because he was returning from injury hes on no ones board. The scouts just havent been doing there job this year and im willing to bet that this draft ends up just as good as the last if not better because what it lacks in size and athleticism it makes up for in skill.
For real, this draft is weak.
I think the draft is weak in terms of superstar potential, but whenever I try and make a mock draft I'm surprised by how many of these players could be solid contributers at the next level, even if they don't make an All-Star team.
Lets wait the three years it takes for players to develop before we call it a weak draft. A draft can only be determined years down the road when players actually have to play. Well se in a few years if all the guys screaming weak draft come back saying they new there were stars in this draft.
with 4 of top 10 stayinig in school it is a bit on the weak side...

Juan Dixon and Lonnie Baxter led a team to an NCAA championship too.
If so, Lmao....
Clearly you haven't missed Kemba-Baxter parallels, right? Winning a college title does not matter in how a player's NBA career will play out, and on top of that fact it was a lousy college season. Kemba had a great college season, and that ends when he joins the NBA. Jimmer had a great year where he carried an awful BYU team that without him isn't even an NIT team to the Sweet Sixteen. That is a college achievement, and it has nothing to do with the NBA. The aspects of his game that went into those performances matter, but not the outcome of a game. Gordon Hayward would not have been any better a rookie if that halfcourt shot went in. Jon Scheyer wasn't a better player because it didn't. The NBA careers of Mario Chalmers and Derrick Rose were not impacted by the final twenty seconds of that title game. That is what I am saying.
