bc there are better veterans out there...look at the last pick Jason Kapono - one of the best shooters...versus some of these rookies who may never be anything...
Heh, I'm with Nene actually. At this point we're mostly choosing between rookies/young guys who may never be anything and veterans who will definitely never be anything.
I strongly disagree - overall in this draft there has been WAY too much overdrafting of rookies versus real talent...these guys HAVE NEVER STEPPED ON AN NBA COURT...versus proven veterans that have established that they can survive, let alone thrive in the NBA.
A first round pick? Two second round pics?
Then one fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh round pick,
a whopping FIVE eighth round picks, 3 ninth rounders, 5 tenth rounders and 5 eleventh rounders and we are still not done with the round...
Cafe Reshuffle selection, NBA draft pick
1.14 1 Wall, John (first round, really???? before Amare, Danny Granger or more proven PGs such as Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo, Westbrook)
2.14 2 Turner, Evan (way way too early - before Joakin Noah or Rudy Gay?)
4.11 3 Favors, Derrick (not bad for fourth round)
7.14 4 Johnson, Wesley (not terrible for 7th round)
2.18 5 Cousins, DeMarcus (too early)
10.23 6 Udoh, Ekpe (OK for 10th round)
5.25 7 Monroe, Greg (too early)
8.23 8 Aminu, Al-Farouq (too early)
9.10 9 Hayward, Gordon
8.30 10 George, Paul
6.21 11 Aldrich, Cole (6th round, really)
8.07 12 Henry, Xavier
8.14 13 Davis, Ed
10.17 14 Patterson, Patrick
10.29 15 Sanders, Larry
11.17 16 Babbitt, Luke
