The college player of the year deserves all the attention he gets. Who cares about whether or not it will translate to the NBA, he was great to watch at BYU.

Where is all the talent going these days? It seems like every draft class is very underwhelming. This won't be as bad as Griffin's year, but pretty close to it.

This is the worst draft class in at least ten years.

Blake's was good: Harden, Tyreke Evans, Steph Curry, Brandon Jennings, Hansbrough, Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson, Darren Collison, Taj Gibson, Sam Young, DaJuan Blair and Marcus Thornton.

Thabeet, Rubio look like they might be major flops. And there just isn't any starpower there. Some guys will turn out to be decent players, but it seemed like for a while they were pumping out stars every year.

Blake is the next big thing, and a number of the guys I mentioned have the potential to become stars. Every draft has huge flops so that point is moot.

Obviously Blake does, but who else from that class has superstar potential?

Harden is basically Paul Pierce's doppleganger in terms of his play. Other potential stars are: Tyreke, Ty, Jrue, Jennings and Collison.

That is point of the draft.

I couldn't give a fuck about college basketball or college sports in general.

I didn't know too much about him either. I've done a little reading up on him and found that he was a stud at the combine. Seems to be a great defender. From what I've read, if Georgia Tech didn't s**k so bad, he would have gotten picked earlier. He kinda flew under the radar. It actually meets a need for the Knicks. We still need a BIG though.

That's what annoys me. This franchise seems to have some sort of problem with talented centers (Lee and Amare are not true centers) since Ewing left. I just don't get it, but apparently since it's a "guards league" now centers are out of style.
