I want to hear your thoughts on this. I must say the 2004 draft was the easiest, but the 2007 draft was the hardest by far, incredibly deep draft.

i played all 4 years of

i played all 4 years of higschool but i didnt play much. We had a real good team though. In my 4 years, we never lost a single league game. We only lost when we went down into LA county and started playing teams ranked in the state. My senior year, we had 5 guys that ended up playing college ball and the best one was our center who was a top 100 recruit and went to USC and is now playing pro in europe. I got better after highschool and was able to hold my own against d1 level players in my prime. But I was the worst athlete you have ever seen. Im 6-4 and have never dunked in my life.

Okay. If you're still growing you'll be able to with another inch, or if you workout some you will probably be able.
