    The issue is not talent itself, but the fact that there are no longer obvious top talents. It's a little bit of a crap shoot picking between guys like Evan Turner, Wes Johnson, Greg Monroe and Paul George or Barnes, Drummond, MKG and Beal.

    I still feel like a good scout can and should be able to identify the right guys though and GMs should have balls enough to take a slight risk.

    abroad? No. I do think they should either allow them to come straight out of high school, or they have to stay 2 years minimum.

    As for the article, while I agree there don't appear to be any superstars in this upcoming draft, 1-2 will emerge as all star players down the road. That is just how it happens.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I would Love if Okc moved up to the top 3-4 to draft Nerlens Noel

    - Durant (35)
    - Ibaka (9) Go Okc!!!
    - Westbrook (0)

    Ibaka & Noel in the same frontcourt would be unfair for the rest of the league.

    If one freak shotblocker doesn't get you then the other one will block it from the weakside as a help defender.

    They say this every draft since 2008 about how you should trade your pick and its nobody great and next thing you know GM's start offering star players for the 4th or 5th pick because they've fell in love with a prospect.

    People got spoiled by the first year of 1 & Dones in 07 and 08 making those drafts special and now everyone is critical of those who come out each year.

    I say the requirement should be at least three years in college before you are eligible.

    Nerlens Noel has a ton of potential he does resemble Anthony Davis just not as polished especially offensively but here are his stats in his last 2 games-

    12pts,9rebs,6blks,4stls,2ast

    15pts,11rebs,7blks,4stls,6ast

    Serge Ibaka and Nerlens Noel controlling the paint would be flat out NASTY!
    Ino he's offense isn't that great but its a work in progress. Look at Ibaka for an example.. When he first came to Okc he didn't have a offensive game. He's been putting a lot of effort and have almost mastered the mid range jumper.
    But with Durant and Westbrook he wouldn't have to score as much and he could focus on the thing he's Great at.. DEFENSE

    - Durant (35)
    - Ibaka (9) Go Okc!!!
    - Westbrook (0)

    This is precisely why I am so glad this is the year Utah finally gets my warriors first round pick.

    Raptors traded the pick, but it's top 3 protected. Colangelo finally did something right. We will have our pick at the best prospects in the draft if we fall back into the bottom three, or move up in the lotto. Noel to Toronto

    Ok, I just did that to piss off OKC fans. Srry, I'm just trying to find reasons for me not to go to the ACC and wait for BC to come out of his office and give him the Brian Burke 2 by 4 treatment :cry:
