    Yea I get your point, guess I just didn't read the question right. I'm just saying that some of these younger players haven't evenhad a chance to really shine(or flop) yet. It's too early to judge them.

    I actually agree with Anthony Randolph somewhat...

    He is very young, yes, but I can see his potential being overrated, if that makes sense...


    Im gonna have to go with Tyrus Thomas...is the dude freakishly athletic? Yes but youd swear he was getting ready to TAKE OVER based on what some dudes used tosay about his "potential"

    why are people even listing Lamar Odom? Dude is turning 30 real soon. I could see his name being mentioned if it was 2004, but damn.....

    I disagree w/ players like OJ Mayo and Brandon Roy.

    You already knew what you were getting in drafting these players. They came into the league 'NBA Ready' but as far as potential, their ceileingisn't that much higher than the level they are already at now. Sure, they can get better in facets of the game, as they are still young, but it isn'tgoing to be anything exponential to where they would leapfrog from the level they are at to discussion as the best player in the league.

    They are very good players, and will remain that way for a while. I just don't expect too much growth in their game.

    And I haven't seen anybody say something to the effect of them raising their games 6-7 levels or something like that.

    And now w/ that said, I can see why people put Melo in this lane, but I just don't agree. I'm a little biased though [​IMG]

    ^ I definitely believe that Foye coming out of college had "overrated potential," but I don't think he's hit his ceiling yet. At least I hopenot. He will be a serviceable and solid player for years I think, with only flashes now and then of amazing talent.

    your stats are great and all but if you've watched the games he's actually playing as good, if not better than bosh for the team..unaware.

    bosh's nose for the ball is a joke..he's not looking to score as much and he has little to no aggression..and that was pre-injury too...andrea has beenplaying just the opposite of that.

    git off my nuts son..list some players instead of talkin out your %+* like usual...thank you

    He's just on a bad team, but he's a double double machine.


    Why is J.R. Smith rated so high and unstoppable in NBA 2K9?[​IMG]

    There were alot of analysts and scouts calling Randy Foye a baby Dwyane Wade coming out of Nova...I never saw any similarities in their games at all other thanthey were both undersized 2's.

    I don't ever see him winning a championship as a #1 guy but that is mainly how rich the talent in the NBA is right now ('Bron, Kobe, Wade, Duncan,Howaard, Paul). I see his potential as a better, bigger version of Paul Pierce.

    Agree with Roy, disagree with Mayo, at least on NT. People were crowning him saying he was going to be better or on par with Kobe when his careeris over. It hit a whole time high during the olympics when Kobe said something about Mayo being good.
