Name three young players that are either really hated on or extremely under the radar that you want to "claim". Like once they have success, you can say "i told u guys this kid was gunna be great"

They either have to be incoming rookies or they havent had much playing time in the NBA yet. remeber, they have to be players that other people overlook/underrate that YOU believe are going to be good and want to be able to claim the right to say "i told u so"

my three are:

Ricky Rubio
Donatas Motiejunas
Lance Stephenson

bold statement for each player:

Ricky Rubio-NBA legend
Donatas Motiejunas-NBA All Star, Pau Gasol type player
Lance Stephenson- Hes really gunna shock all of u. hes going to be able to be the first player on a championship team. WATCH

Grevis Vazquez
Eric Bledsoe
Gordon Hayward (I really think he's going to be good, just not for the first 2-4 years of his career. Once he bulks up he'll be fine).

watch guys!!!!! Lance Stephenson will be a star. He has all the skills Tyreke Evans has except Lance is more fierce and has much more killer instinct.

Stephen Curry and Tyreke Evans rivalry will end up as great as Bird-Magic and Russell - Chamberlain.

oh and Jerome Randle is going to be amazing

Mark my words, Evan Turner will be the best player to come out this draft. Future NBA All Star written all over him.

Hassan Whiteside - Leading the league in blocked shots.
Avery Bradley - Lockdown defender at the G.
Al Farouq Aminu - The next Marion (he reminds me alot of him)

I actually like Lance Stephenson, but legend he is not, yet.

Is it too late to claim Steph Curry?

Ty Lawson- When this guy gets to play he's money go look at his stats when he got to start or lots of minutes.

Anthony Randolph- Still very raw, but he's got hustle and some pretty unique skill sets to boot, may never be a superstar but his talent and mismatch potential is hard to ignore.

Mareese Speights- Dude's probably going to be the next Elton Brand but he never gets to play.

dunno if anyones heard of him, but the Jazz 2nd round pick of a couple of years ago Ante Tomic is getting rave reviews playing for Real Madrid. In contention for best center in Europe, drawing comparisons to Pau Gasol. He's like 7'3 250lbs, could come to the NBA in 2 years. He should be helpful.

if Lance Stephenson got the opportunity and role, he could be 20 5 and 5 his rookie year too

Yi Jianlian I feel can be a really good player if he stays healthy and everyone seems to hate him. Also Greivis Vazquez will be the next Gilbert Arenas, including the guns.

You seem to kind of get lost in players hype. What makes you think he'll be a threat at the next level? I really don't see very much promising out of the guy... and I don't think NBA GM's do either. There's a chance he goes undrafted.

Haha... no dude. Look at his numbers at Cincy. 12/5/2.5. Even adjusted for 36 a game he's not getting 20/5/5/... in college. This guy is years away from being a producer in the NBA if he ever will be.

As for me, I think Wes Johnson is going to be great. Hope he drops to the Warriors; him and Anthony Randolph on the court at the same time would be a matchup nightmare when they run a smaller lineup.

I once also held high hopes for Yi, then I watched him at the Asia Championship...... When playing against such low level opponents, Yi only stood out by his physical gifts. No fake shots. A lot of throwing himself toward the basket with poor control.
And by the way, did you know that he can't dunk with one hand? Go check for yourself. In fact, once Yi made a one-hand put-back, and it went in the news in China......

They would have to be the 2 best players in the league and thats not ever going to happen. I can't believe you even dared mentioning those two in the same breath. :facepalm:

I said all this about Rondo his first year with the C's. Saying he should get the starting point job, and voila. Look at him now.

I do think Rubio will have an impact on the game when he gets here.
