    Jazzy- everyone had Greg Oden as the #1 and I said he was a sure bust, too. I was right. Clearly.
    Everyone had Michael Beasley as the #1 and I said he would suck in the NBA... so far, that's looking real good.

    Trust me. Some guys you can easily nail because they simply don't translate well. What the hell is Blake Griffin going to do in the NBA?
    All he can do is dunk, and overpower small players. How many smaller players will there be in the NBA for him in the post? None. He's too small to play like he did in college, and he can't shoot at all.
    He struggled any time there was a big body around in college- just like Beasley did. These guys get in the NBA and they look small and out of place. There's nothing they can really do.

    Who had Beasley over Rose? I certainly didn't.

    Yea because clearly after 1 year he's a bust. I wont even touch your Phil Jackson comment, it's just too asinine.

    Anyway as a Wizards fan I feel like with the addition of Foye, Miller and probably adding a big man we can get back to the playoffs and be a very good team again.

    Rockets got three good players for money. A+.

    Llull looks as good as Rubio. Good hops. Fancy passing. Fast. In this video, he crossed over Rubio.

    Taylor and Budinger are also good, though I think Budinger is a bit overrated. He does have some skills. Taylor is an offensive force. And dominated other draft picks at the camps. Me like.

    Shaq coming to the Cavs was my draft.

    Lebron and Shaq!

    Many people. In fact, most thought the only reason Chicago took Rose was due to him being from there. It was a debate on who would go first- Rose or Beasley, and many gave the nod to Rose simply because he was the hometown kid.

    I don't care. If you had Beasley in the top 10 you had him too high. Dude is garbo.

    Greg Oden was drafted in 07. How many games has he played? 2 seasons in...

    He's a bust. If you think some magic is going to happen and he'll all of a sudden play well OR stay healthy, you're crazy.

    Lakers fans are worried the Cavs got Shaq.
