Did you deliberately skip the HIGHLIGHTED with BOLD I typed ??
Many here missing the whole point IMO
Guys.....You Draft someone on GUANRANTEED POTENTIAL
HUGE EXAMPLE IN THE NBA:
SHAQ was selected 50 greatest players ever to play the game in 1997
By 1997. Shaq had
-NO Reg Season MVPs
-NO Scoring titles
-NO Blocks titles
-Lost 1995 NBA Finals badly!
Despite pathetic resume, no one ever questioned Shaq's Top 50 players ever spot like they questioned Scottie Pippen's as 'Nique was Excluded.
Everyone who voted Shaq in the Top 50 players Ever in 1997 new one thing.
Shaq is a GUARANTEED MULTIPLE TITLES in near future in his peak prime. Its just a matter of "WHEN" & with which franchise.
