Ok. Lets say every single player in the 2009 NBA draft reaches there full potential. yeah it never works out that way, but lets just say it does.

If everyone reaches there potential, who would have the best career?

non, lol, who cares, i don't see any of them being true franchie players. IMO, this year's draft sux. I feel there is more hype of these players than proven players, but we shall see. hopefully, some of these draft picks will prove me wrong and will just add more star power to the nba in the future.

Rubio, Jennings, Thabeet, DeRozan, Griffin.

In no particular order, but I'd put Rubio and Jennings 1-2.

DeMar DeRozan. if he plays to his full potential (which isnt likely) he can be amazing. Hes quick, a great athlete, an so freakin athletic. He has the potential to be a quicker Vince Carter with better D.

Mullens could be a beast, but he has a high bust chance as well. If you get him the right coach though, he could be a top 10 C.

Like someone previously said, I don't see any guaranteed franchise players in this draft like there have been in the past few drafts (Rose, Durant..etc)
But, if I had to pick one, I'd go with Griffin obviously. He's the best player in this draft BY FAR not just because he can contribute right away, but because he can eventually be a team's best player. He's Boozer Pt. 2.

James Harden by a long shot. Hes got the size, strength, and athleticism to go with a good jump shot and solid man defense.

James Harden is the real deal.

since we break the rules anyways, Johny Flynn will be the best PG in this draft.

Thabeet has the most potential clearly. He can become a Yao Ming, or he can become a DJ Mbenga.

What part of his game screams Yao Ming? I see his ceiling as Dikembe Mutombo. He doesn't have an offensive game AT ALL. He has no post game, he can't shoot, and he has no footwork. He doesn't even show signs of a real NBA-caliber offensive game. How can you possibly see Yao Ming?

Thabeet and Yao Ming is the worst comparison ever. Yao Mingis a great jump shooter. Thabeets potential is hopefully having some post game.

and guys when i asked whod be the best if they reached there potential, i didnt mean who has the highest drop of from best case scenario to worst case scenario. Im saying if everyone reached there highest, whod be the best. So for you guys that said thabeet, i hope u know that ur saying that you think Thabeet reaching his potential is a better player then Griffin reaching his potential

I meant to say that his training and PRACTICE will dictate his overall potential. If he spends the time, he can develop a jumpshot, but will he, I don't think so. I'm just saying with his height and defensive abilities, he really does have the most potential, but I do agree that his post and offensive game is horrible right now.
