Absolutely every one of the guys that are projected in the lottery are a big risk and now Alex Len is supposedly going # 1. Pretty lame...

Last time I checked, there

Last time I checked, there are several players in the lottery that aren't a big risk at all. Where'd you come up with that statement? And how do you say this is the worst draft ever? You can't even comment on how good the draft was until 7-10 years in the future.

oh wow the site gave kenyon

oh wow the site gave kenyon martin a 106 ratinga.. to put that in perspective, kevin durant is only a 104 and most prospects from this year are between 90-95 in the top 5.

While that draft lacked star

While that draft lacked star talent, almost half of those guys drafted have had long serviceable careers. A handful of them are still in the NBA right now.

The draft was supposed to

The draft was supposed to have Rasheed Wallace, Shawn Kemp, Charles Barkley, Tracy McGrady, Lamar Odom and Scottie Pippen in the top 6 and the 11th pick was supposed to become Kevin Garnett, who could've thought something could possibly go wrong.

This year there are only two all-star comparisons and one of them is Ilgauskas, talk about expectations getting lowered over time.

9 guys still in the league after 13 years

That's not horrible.

LOTS of very interesting

LOTS of very interesting players...
future role players, specialized in one or two areas of the game
lots of risky picks who could (at least one of them...) bust

I don't buy this new trend of saying "worst draft ever" or "best draft ever" for 2014. It really depends on the way players are going to be developped by their teams... For example ... Danny Green ...

Agreed

I don't buy it either. While this draft isn't great for the top few picks as far as franchise changing players go, I think this draft is actually pretty deep and there will be good players that can fill a role coming out of the second round.

Probably not the worst draft

Probably not the worst draft ever, but it very well may be the most unpredictable draft ever. I just don't know where most these people will go, I've already drastically changed my mock 3 times and will probably another 3 times before the draft...

I realize you probably are

I realize you probably are looking to get negged and that's why you made such a stupid thread. This draft has very little tiers. But,even can't miss prospects miss. No one was pushing Lillard as the best prospect from last year's draft. You can argue that their is a tier of players with similar prospects from the 20's and into the 2nd round. It's all going to come down to their work ethic, health, and opportunity. I think this draft will push out lots of useful players, but very light on stars.

I think this draft will be

I think this draft will be like the 2011 draft where you can get solid role players and that teams should go for need and fit instead of best available.
