Is anyone else not that excited about the NBA Draft this year? I mean I’m generally not too pumped anyway but this year is kind of blah. I mean is Jimmer really going to be good in the NBA? Isn’t Kemba Walker too small? Kyrie Irving? Yeah I guess.
Personally I’m curious how that Jonas Valanciunas guy will fair. The foreign guys always intrigue me. Other than that it really doesn’t make a shred of difference.
However, it obviously got me thinking about some of the best picks of the past decade. And here they are…..
2000- Jamal Crawford
Yup, Jamal Crawford. Think about how bad this draft was. Ouch.
2001 – Pau Gasol
This was the year that international players started to make a pretty huge impact on the order in which they were picked in the draft. Now it’s pretty ridiculous but back then it was unheard of.
2002- Amare Stoudemire
This is a no doubter.
2003 – Lebron James
I wish I could have said Darko but come on. As much hate that Lebron gets obviously he’s a top 3 player in the NBA.
2004 – Dwight Howard
This draft was actually pretty weak so it’s pretty obvious that Howard is the guy.
2005 – Chris Paul
When he’s fully healthy he’s definitely a top 2 point guard. Derron Williams also drafted this year.
2006 – Rajon Rondo
One could have said Brandon Roy a few years ago but he’s pretty much done now. Rondo is definitely the guy.
2007 – Kevin Durant
That one’s pretty obvious.
2008 – Derrick Rose
2009 – Blake Griffin
It’s scary how good this guy is going to be.
2010 – John Wall
So far it’s definitely John Wall. I think career wise it should still be Wall but Greg Monroe an DeMarcus Cousins could prove worthy.
