out of the 2008 draft, out of Mario Chalmers, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Courtny Lee, and Nichalos Batum?

no love for Luc Richard Mbah

no love for Luc Richard Mbah a Moute? ive seen him play and i know he might never be much of a scorer but he will be a great defender.

he took the starting job

he took the starting job from Villanueva, he was kind of like Batum last year where he started because of his defense.

Chalmers

Batum for some reason all I can think of is Jared Jeffries when I see him play, shows flashes but will he ever put it together.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute reminds me of better Bruce Bowen which in not a bad career for a second rounder.

Courtny Lee will fall into the Wesley Person type mold, adequate starter but probably more of a 6th man when it comes down to it. He played in orlando because Pietrus is defense and JJ Redick is......well I will leave it at that. Again not a bad career for where he was selected.

Chalmers will be one of those players that when he gets acclimated to the NBA should be one of those All-Star game fringe players. Just not quite good enough stats to make the game except for possibly a year or two. He is a perenial starter in the NBA waiting to happen.

birdzilla- out of the 4 guys

birdzilla- out of the 4 guys you mentioned I think Batum has the most potential. I think Chalmers is the best player of the 4 right now. Based on where they were drafted I guess you would have to say that Chalmers was the biggest steal.

Some other Picks I like:
Late Lottery Steal- Anthony Randolph
Mid 1st Round Steal- McGee
Late 1st Round Steal- George Hill
2nd Round Steal- Kyle Weaver

Batum has the most potential

Batum has the most potential but I do not believe he will ever reach it but that is not a bad thing. He will be a soild defender and decent slasher for his career. Lee will be soild role player on playoff teams for many years to come but will never be a all-star but I may be wrong. Chalmers is not a starting point guard in the NBA, he is more a solid backup who brings great D and the intangibles to help a team win. The same can be said for Mbah a Moute b/c he is a solid defender but will never be much of an offensive threat.

I like Batum out of that

I like Batum out of that group. Chalmers will continue to put up most of the same stats,

Mbah a Moute isnt a good offensive player, and I dont think he will ever be anything higher than the 5th option on a team.

And Courtney Lee is limited on offense to a lesser extent by his average athleticism.

Even though Batum is raw offensively, I like the flashes he shows from time to time, especially in his handles and shooting, and he already is a feared defender who will get better as he learns his matchups tendencies and how to really use his length. I think he has a nice future and alot of potential all-defensive awards.

George Hill is going to be good as well. He actually has alot of Tony Parker in him in that he isnt a great "playmaking" passer, but his athleticism and quickness will allow him to get to the rim and his strength and craftiness will let him be a good finisher. He also is the better defender out of him and Parker. He is a future starter.
