That's quite a terrifying range.

Or, quite an enticing range. Depending on how you look at it.

...and where you're drafting.

He's the first guy I've ever said, "He reminds me of a young, left handed Kobe Bryant" about. Obviously that will depend on his work ethic, but I can't wait to see what he's gonna be.


My alma mater just got WAY good!!!

Anderson and Muhammad! Bring on the Pac-12 championship and Final Four!

Btw, Muhammad's work ethic is supposed to be through the f'n roof.

He is a man child

Man, this draft so far

Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger, Andre Drummond, Thomas Robinson, Dion Waiters, Fab Melo, Moe Harkless, Perry Jones...

And the Kentucky guys haven't even announced their declaration yet

damn the Knicks for being so good, or else my rockets would have a lottery pick, as we own their 1st rd pick(Top 5 protected).
Kentucky starting 5 declare for draft

I was surprised the 2 guards, especially Teague, declared.
Teague was one one of the highest rated recruits last year. He would've probably been a lottery pick if he stayed another year

Get in while the stock is high, I guess. They probably didn't want to go back to the gutted roster, too.

Last year, everyone was saying that this year's draft was gonna be sick.

Maybe it's just me (I'm no expert like some of you guys) but I just don't see a true superstar in this draft.

Anthony davis definitely has superstar potential
There's a bunch of guys that have the potential to be very good but also have a big chance to be a bust, like drummond or perry jones

Maybe so but he needs to add weight and strength. Remember he's 6'10 not 7"0+. IMO I don't see him ever dominating the NBA like he did the college game.
