Reason

They have always done both the pre-draft camp and the combine. The reason they gave for doing away with the camp was $. That simple. if anyone saw they numbers pertaining to gross losses for the NBA, then you can sort of understand why. All the more reason that morons like Magnum Rolle from LTech and Sims from Michigan need to have their heads checked for rejecting PIT invites.

5 on 5 basketball
5 on 5 basketball measures how good you're basketball skills are... It tests how good you are in the game... That's the ultimate test... The Draft Combine measures your athleticism, stamina, vertical leap etc but can sometimes be crappy... Won't believe me? Just try and ask Joe Alexander...

youre rightmarcus that would

youre rightmarcus that would be the best way to measure skills but i will never happen as far as top draft picks being involved is concened. the agents wont let them and the players wont do itand i dont blame them. imagin being considered for a top 3 pick orlotto like alexander then going and playing in the 5 on 5 against potential second round picks and getting killed. then you drop to the second round and lose millions
