    The curse of the #2 pick

    MKG
    Derrick Williams
    Turner
    Thabeet
    Beasley
    Durant
    Aldridge
    Marvin Williams
    Okafor
    Darko
    Jay Williams


    In just the past 10 years only 2 players have panned out. Why is it so hard for NBA scouts to get this right? I think this is embarrasing. Scouts and GM's should be doing a better job.

    I will say that MKG needs more time before being judged.

    They were picked 2nd based on their previous performance (college/HS/international) and their potential level. They aren't psychic.

    Lamarcus isn't trash for damn sure, Turner so far has been a bust for where he was picked at. Beasley has shown he can play but he doesn't keep his mind concentrated on basketball. He's one of those guys who has all then talent and potential in the world but let's it go to waste

    Keep going... 3rd picks, 4th picks, 5th picks. The draft is by no means an exact science.

    Huh?

    I honestly don't know what you mean, not even trying to be a prick.

    Funny thing is most of these guys had red flags out of college

    Beasley - headcase.
    Turner - cant shoot, not athletic.
    Thabeet - only thing he had going for him was being tall.
    Williams - could not even start in college
