I noticed this a while ago, but decided to make a post to get some opinions.

The Rockets have 5 players on their roster from this draft class and 4 of them were picked in the top 11.

#2 Hasheem Thabeet

#6 Jonny Flynn

#8 Jordan Hill

#11 Terrence Williams

#44 Chase Buddinger





On another note .... How good would the Grizz be if they picked Harden over Thabeet, and Ed Davis over Xavier Henry in 2010.

Interesting #44 is probably the best.

I cant believe how crap Flynn is. I thought he'd at least be a starter and put up decent numbers. Who woulda thought his *** would be getting blistered because he's on the bench so much...

Pretty crazy stuff. It's good talent but mostly just role players.

Lol, I think the overall talent of each pick decreases from the bottom-up

i was watching the Clipper v. Rockets yesterday and boy oh boy the play-by-play guys were just ripping into Flynn. They said things like not NBA worthy, Selfish and thinks everything should be given to him. They kept saying he acted as if he was the greatest player in the league and stuff.

I don't know what this guy did or didn't do to deserve that but it got pretty hard to listen to them rip him.

He had a decent rookie year didnt he?

if Hill went after Williams, they are in exact order for sucking the worst to sucking the least.

The one thing to point out is, the Rox technically drafted the 2 best of the group, and acquired the others in trades, all as throw-ins.

lol i'm not saying he's a solid player but some of the things they said were pretty bad.
"... pack your backs for the d-league johnny.."
"Flynn not much of a shooter huh?....(other guy) no ones quite sure what he is...?

I dunno if you saw that broadcast but it I thoought it was a little too much.

all busts

poor memphis

can't believe they took a bust in thabeet....... if they had picked up some decent players in that draft they'd be even better!

Budinger and Hill are solid rotation guys, far from a bust. Those top picks are busts, the Thabeet and Flynn ones.

Awesome, now I am thinking back to draft night, and when we took Rubio, I started screaming for DeRozan.

Ugh
