    Which rookie do you want to see suceed?

    Outside of DG, because he will be picked up soon I'm sure, which NBA rookie do you most want to see suceed? I hope that Isaiah Thomas does well. I enjoyed watching him at Washington. That shot he hit in the NCAAs was huge.

    Jimmy Butler and Malcolm Lee, only because they were picked by Chicago. I don't really have much interest in any of the other guys, and this has to have been one of the worst drafts in recent memory.

    I hope Jacob Pullen can make it somewhere, that guy is a gamer. I'm surprised he wasn't drafted, IMO he was a top 30-40 guy in the draft.

    Re: Which rookie do you want to see suceed?

    Kemba baby. Loved watching him throughout the whole year of MBB, and then he starts getting ripped on and downgraded because of size. **** that ****, kid can ball. He's gonna be a star.

    On the flip side, the rookies I want to see fail are Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Justin Harper, and Milan Macvan because I hate Cleveland.

    I don't think he'd be able to guard a chair, but man can he shoot the basketball.

    The kid that dropped out of high school to go play overseas, failed horribly and still got drafted. He averaged like 3 ppg..seriously someone drafted him and then someone traded for him?

    Re: Which rookie do you want to see suceed?

    I personally don't care. I didn't have any desire to watch the draft other than seeing DG get picked (which I was positive he would). I guess there is more of a market for Congo, Japan and Qatar players than there are for college seniors. I watched the last round and thought, "wow, this is the future of the NBA?" Foreign born players with mediocre stats get a draft and place status, knowing they aren't ready to join the league for another couple of years. NBA is turning into the MLB. Irrelevant draftees until 2013 or 2014. Good luck to DG.
