Sorry that you don't like the sport most of the entire world loves.

Damn.. I just realized I don't have a LeBron voodoo doll… gonna need to get one. And I get it, I'm not looking to beef about soccer, but the "the rest of the world loves soccer" argument is often used and somewhat misdirected. There's a pretty obvious reason why.

Obviously. You're all aging veterans past your prime, and RFX'd need a clause preventing pre-game speeches. Plus I can go to SW&D and find a few rookie deals willing to play if I cover their T0J losses.

True, but we'll lead the league in veteran savvy and Ben-Gay (yeah, I know) usage rates.

2013: (4) Cody Zeller, (5) Alex Len
2011: (3) Enes Kanter, (5) Jonas Valanciunas, (6) Jan Vesely
2008: (5) Kevin Love
2007: (10) Spencer Hawes
2006: (1) Andrea Bargnani, (3) Adam Morrison
2005: (1) Andrew Bogut
2004: (8) Rafael Araujo

They all were pretty terrible minus Love. In fact, Love and Gordon Hayward were the only good white guys drafted in the top 10 for the past 10 years.

Other white guys in top 10:
Luke Jackson (#10 - 2004), Danilo Gallinari (#6 - 2008), Joe Alexander (#8 - 2008), Ricky Rubio (#5 - 2009), Gordon Hayward (#9 - 2010), Jimmer Fredette (#10 - 2011), Nik Stauskas (#8 - 2014)

I guess what I'm saying is that this draft has big bust potential with Kristaps Porzingis, Mario Hezonja, and Frank Kaminsky all going in the top 10.

Half of the players drafted top10 turn out mediocre- so yes this draft has a big bust potential. Say like 50%.
