Default Already annoyed with the "Next year's draft is so strong" talk

Its not that great. Check out nbadraftnet's new mock for a good example.

Wiggins is the truth, no doubt. He is the one advantage next year's mock has though IMO.

I love Randle's game, he's very intriguing. However, its very possible he ends up as an Anthony Bennett clone.

Parker's stock is already dropping, as he was originally talked about as the Wiggins of this class. He's the Barnes/Muhammad of the class IMO. Solid player, but not the star he was expected to be as a HS senior/junior

The rest is pretty meh. Marcus Smart isn't any better of a prospect than MCW/Burke/Mccollum IMO. Bad shooting, bad A/TO

After that you have guys like Cauley-Stein(is he better than Len/Adams?), Harris(similar to guys like KCP, worse than Mclemore), Glenn Robinson III(very enigmatic and unproven at this point) and other such prospects that are similar to this year's late lottery guys.

Harrison, the PG one, could be pretty good, but hard to tell so far.

Thoughts?

Don't worry, there's bound to be plenty of "weak draft" talk at some point, no matter how strong the class is.

I think you're trying too hard to go left when everyone is going right.

You're basing some of that off of what?

What is a Bennett clone? We don't know how good (or bad) he will become, seeing as he hasn't even played a professional game yet. How is Parker's stock dropping? Why would it be dropping when he's not playing any games right now either?

You can have your opinions on the returning college players because at least you gave a reason for why you dislike them. Although Smart being the same level or worse prospect than MCW is absurd.

You also left off some projected lottery picks, where at least one of which has franchise player potential.

Australian PG who's projected as a top 10 (top 5 in some sites) pick if he declares for the draft.

When's the last time a draft had multiple franchise players?

Potentially 08' if Gordon didn't turn into Mr. Glass.

Rose
Westbrook
Kevin Love
Brook Lopez
Roy Hibbert
Sege Ibaka
Mayo (projected to be the next Kobe )
Gordon (Could've been a stud if it weren't for his injuries.)
Beasley ( )

Smart. Jump to conclusions before they play a single college game. How, exactly, can you even just speculate that Parker isn't the star he was expected to be? He's played zero minutes in college. Same with Randle.

Don't forget Aaron Gordon, the next Blake Griffin. Or Andrew Harrison, a tall, talented point guard with a ton of potential. Or even his twin, Aaron. Dante Exum is also shooting up tons of mock drafts, and apparently has lots of the makings of a future star. Then you get into the fringe starter types, the ones that will come later in the first round, like McAdoo, Poythress, Harris, McGary, Hairston... Then there will always be steals in the later rounds.

This is one of the most stacked drafts in a long time.

This is clearly one of the best drafts in recent memory, and I'd love to cash in on the Bobcats pick now, and grab the #10 or #11 pick in this year's draft.

**** a top 5 pick in a shitty draft.

This guy isn't even a lock to go TOP 5.

That says it all.

Half that list are just average talent, below Love.

In this draft there's

Wiggins
Parker
Exum
Smart
Zimm
Anthony

as all potential HOF players
