I dont know, its hard to tell, teams, coaches, and styles of play have a huge role. Anthony randolph was considered to be a three or four years down the road type of player yet under nelson he put up significant numbers in the second half of last season and appears to be on his way to being a solid player. Danny granger instance as well was lucky that the veterans and management of the pacers fell apart after the brawl in detroit therefore leaving open an opportunity for him to play minutes and become a leader there. If danny granger was drafted late by a team like the spurs he would be coming off of the bench playing 20 mins a game. No one can predict what a player will do based on ratings, yes you can say this guy will be a good pro, but honestly it all depends on how a coach will use him. Marcus williams was a highly touted college prospect who got high ratings and he has vanished from the face of the earth. Even guys like dwayne wade no one could of seen him coming, he was similar to a tyreke evans prospect coming out of college, or even gerald henderson from the ratings I have seen, and now is he DWADE nba finals mvp. DIrk nowitzki who could of envisioned that guy doing what he is doing other than don nelson. Nash out of santa clara, back to back mvps ????. Al jefferson was considered a bust after his first 2 seasons, now in the west hes putting up 23-11. Kyle lowry traded for brandon roy lol. MY point is while discussing this and over reacting to hollinger ratings and draft express and nbadraft.net may be a fun way to lead up to the draft, the bottom line is, unlike the 80s and early 90s barring the recent Lebron james, Carmelo, Durant, types no one is a sure shot any more to be a star, mainly because other than welll the knicks lol every team pretty much has an established go to guy. Chris paul was considered a shoot first poor leadership ability selfish player when he was drafted, now hes the best pg in the league. Plus you have to remember, no one even know who danillo gallinari or andrea bargaini were until like 2 days before draft night when rumors began spilling over.
I love the chatter, but im not paying attention to ratings, ty lawson could be another chris paul, or he could be another tyus edny.
I say we just let the draft happen, and well come back to this three years from now.
