Who does everyone think is going to be a bust in the upcoming draft?
I may eat my words on my overrated player of the draft pick of Ed Davis. I feel like the only reason teams will draft him so high is because he goes to UNC and is tall however they should go for someone better.
Damian James is also my pick for being overrated because there are so many better players behind him that should be picked way before him.
who else does everyone think?
My top 3 Overrated project lottery picks as of now:
Derrick Favors- I don't think he should be the #2 pick. He is just so raw, he has quite a bit of bust potential.
Willie Warren- I'm not high on pure scoring combo guards. I wouldn't draft him anywhere in the lottery.
Aminu- I like his game but being projected as the 5th pick is a little high in my opinion. I think he is more of a late lottery to mid 1st round pick. He can't shoot so I just don't see him being that effective as a SF in the nba unless that changes.
Over rated- Aldrich....cant see him being any better than a role player...if thats what you need for your team than fine, but Id expect a little more in the lottery
Ebanks and Favors- I think they will be good pros, but will take a couple of years to develop into servicable players...in those years, everyone will label them busts
Underrated-Turner....he will be the kind of guy, every team will want because he can do so much
i used to say ed davis is overrated but the more i watch the mor ei think he isnt
peopel say cole is overrated but those are the peopel who are going by numbers and not looking at how good and deep kansas is. he could score alot more on a different team and he showed the type of scorer he is last year but with a added star in henry who is the teams leading scorer cole isnt gonna get the touches he got last year. i call it the gasol effect. bynum scored more and got more shots before gasol came back and the same with cole before henry got there. then his numbers went down when another good player returned. add to the fact that other players on the team get a lil more shots then they got last year and you have numbers go down. doesnt mean the layer isnt as good as he was. it would be different if henry didnt come there and cole wasnt puttin gup good numbers and the team wasnt so good and deep. i liek aminu..he reminds me of deng. and hes not the best shooter but he isnt bad either and im sure his jumper will get better with time just like most nba players do.
Derrick Favors. He's too raw right now, even though he has a chance to be a big time player.
Aminu. He's alot more polished now than he was last year creating offense and shooting, but he's still got a ways to go before being on an NBA level offensively. I do think, however, he has the potential to one of the absolute best defenders in the NBA. I hear Luol Deng comparisons for him, but I see him as a Luc Richard Mbah a Moute/ Thabo Sefolosha type...
i dont think i can put him and mbhah in the same catagory becaus ehes a better player then he is offensively at the same stage. he actually at the smae or higher then deng was as well
i think aminu is way overrated, i wouldn't take him in the top 20. willie warren has completely sucked this year and should have dropped by now. cole aldrich hasn't played against many centers his size and when he has he hasn't done well.
wait wait wait..willie warren has completely sucked?..how many games of his have you watched?.. hes playing shooting guard and is putting up 19pts 4.5 ast and 3reb with 1 ast...man have standards gone wayy up these days if thats considered sucking? the team hasnt been that good but come on. as far as aminu. i love how alot of peopel talk about him but have maybe seen one game he has played. name 20 guys who have been better then him. cole broved last year and the year before what he can do against big men. he doesnt have to do much this year because the team is good and deep.
Willie Warren will be a great scorer in the NBA I think..And he hasn't completely sucked, even though he does need to play less 1 on 5 to give OU a better chance of winning games..
i agree with you on that but i can understand why he does it sometimes because the rest of the team doesnt have the ability to do awhole lot
