See this is what I am talking about. Anthony Morrow is a 4th round pick? A dude that has bounced around the league who plays less than half an NBA game on average for the last 3 years is a 4th round pick? No offense JRS. It was actually a good pick considering what is left.
I wanted to give the NBA one a shot, and I am not going to go ghost because I think it is boring. But it is just that.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this. I love basketball, it's my second favorite sport behind baseball, but an NBA redraft just isn't nearly as fun as the baseball or NFL redrafts.
Like someone else said, I think a lot of it has to do with the lack of variety in a basketball player. What's the difference between a Al Jefferson and a Brook Lopez at the end of the day, really? Sure, one might be slightly better than the other, but the drop off isn't steep. There are only so many roster spots on a team, and obviously only 5 dudes on the court at a time lol.
For those of you that feel this way about the NBA Redraft, please fill me in on the difference between this offensive guard over here, or that defensive tackle over there, or kickers, punters, 2nd safeties, defensive ends being drafted for a 4-3 defense, that don't actually play in a 4-3 defense, etc.
It's the same thing folks, just with more names. By round 4-5 of the NFL one, there were some real random exciting Left Tackles bein taken, and things like that.
In baseball it's #4 starters, and 4th relievers, and closers, and bats off the bench, and guys that hit a buck eighty and the whole nine there.
35 players per team NFL redraft
24 players per team MLB redraft
12 players per team NBA redraft.
Makes perfect sense that fewer "names" will make it seem like it's a little watered down in the NBA, but it's no different as I just pointed out.
