The 2010 NBA draft was uneventful, boring, and tame. It was void of personality and impact players. Because players leave so early these days the picks are made more on future potential than their present talent level. In addition this draft was rather thin to begin with and no one player (with the exception of John Wall) looks like they can turn a franchise around. The anticipation is clearly focused on free agency where alot of stars have a chance to make a real impact on the future landscape of the NBA. That being said lets review the top 5 picks.
1. John Wall. A nice fit in Washington. Lets hope Gilbert Arenas doesn't break his spirit in his comeback season. He wants to prove all the critics wrong. Eventually the franchise will belong to John.
2. Evan Turner. Pretty good fit in Philly. I wonder if he has the temperament to handle the Philly fans. They're brutal and unrelenting. He has to show alot of game early.
3. Derrick Favors. He'll go nicely with Brooke Lopez in Jersey. Don't look for him to go 20 and 10 but 15 and 7 is possible.
4. Wesley Johnson. The most polished player in the draft. Definitely fills a need in Minnesota and he's just goofy enough to blend in well in Minneapolis. He may quietly take over the team.
5. DeMarcus Cousins. A headcase going to a small town with eccentric owners. This has disaster written all over it. Cousins is Zach Randolph 2.0. So talented you'll have to put up with his nonsense until he tears your team apart.
Here's a little helpful advice for the new guys:
1. USE A CONDOM ALL THE TIME.
2. TIE UP ANY LOOSE ENDS FROM YOUR PAST.
3. TECHNOLOGY IS THE ENEMY, BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS.
4. SAVE SOME MONEY.
5. GET TO KNOW WORLDWIDE WES AS SOON AS YOU CAN.
Good luck gentlemen.
