If MIN's track record is any indicator, he's done. :-b

http://www.basketball-reference.com/draft/NBA_2011.html It's a bit early for any final evaluations, but last years lottery and overall draft is looking a little rough. Kyrie looks like the only All-Star of the group so far. Still some potential out there. In Kanter, Biyombo, Walker, and Vucevic, Valanciunas, Motiejunas, Marshon.
Tristan Thompson is starting but still looks shaky. Derrick hasn't been able to develop any consistency. Vesely looks like a probable role player at best. Fredette I think I'm ready to call bust on. Kawhi, Klay T, Fareid, Isaiah Thomas, Brandon Knight and Parsons have been fantasy useful. Fareid, Kawhi seem to me the only ones with Star potential of that group. But for the most part this draft seems like a lot of bench/role players and guys with slow or no development. Still, this was the lockout class, so the arc on some of these players development may be a little longer than we expect. I remember there was a lot of talk about the Morris brothers being steals at the time of the draft. :-b So far they've just been frustrating. I had high hopes for Markieff, but I don't think I dropped anybody faster this season than him.

Nice analysis.

I know it is super early to talk about this year's draft but I am pretty confident that as a whole, it won't be showing up in this thread this time next year :)
