Is it suppose to be bad this year?



Two NBA scouts say the 2013 NBA Draft will be brutal, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Said one anonymous scout:
"I don’t think this is a good draft. This is the year you should consider trading your draft pick – no matter where it is."
That's bad news for the league's worst teams, which won't have the chance to land a franchise-changing player until at least 2014.
So why is the draft so bad?
One scout said it was because of the NBA's rule that players must attend college for at least one year. He said that rule has caused prospects to jump to the NBA immediately rather than stay in school, telling the Observer, "Now they think one season is the ceiling, not just the floor."

Kyle Lowry. He should've been worth it, but Lowry's been bad this year.


Think before you make comments.

What's hilarious are the reports that we're going to deal Lowry.

You tell me the vision and strategy of someone who trades a lottery pick for a player, only to deal that player within the same season?

Compared to past drafts, yep. There is no Lebron, no DRose, no Anthony Davis, nothing like that. None of the top players (Nerlens Noel, Shabazz Muhamad, Ben McLemore, Zeller, etc) have the type of games that screams Can't Miss or even necessarily All-Star.

Since it's going to the Thunder you can guarantee it'll land on the highest pick they can get through protection :wink:

If Stern really liked us he would Give Toronto the first, second or third pick this year and give us the 3rd pick next year :lol:

Lottery Picks are always valuable, tell me the last draft there wasn't a player drafted after the 4 pick better than Lowry. While it is true, the team still has to draft well, lottery picks always have the potential of picking up that D Wade.

That's bull! No franchise players in the draft, but there are quality players coming out this year.

OKC will probably end up with a pick in the 6-10 range. As the main piece from the Harden trade I wonder if they still consider it a success.

The main piece was obviously Kevin Martin....

In fact it was Martin then lamb then the pick.

There's a few guys who could develop into good nba centers in this draft and not being superstars is better for us since we'd have to get rid of them eventually that way.

If it gets them a good sold center then yes for sure...they got a good player in Martin and of course Lamb. OKC are in good shape long term.
