no.1: PG John Wall (Kentucky), Washington Wizards
Wall is an elite NBA point guard. The Wizards nailed this pick.
no.2: SG Evan Turner (Ohio State), Philadelphia 76ers
Turner has become a solid starter in the league. The 76ers were expecting more when he was drafted.
no.3: PF Derrick Favors (Georgia Tech), Utah Jazz
Favors has improved every year since being drafted. He’s still not at the level which he was expected to be at.
no.4: SF Wesley Johnson (Syracuse), Minnesota Timberwolves
Johnson has turned into a D-league starter/ NBA 12th man. Not what you want with the number four overall pick.
no.5: C DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky), Sacramento Kings
“Boogie” Cousins has developed into the best center in the NBA.
no.6: C Ekpe Udoh (Baylor), Golden State Warriors
Udoh never accomplished much in the NBA. Golden State is lucky they nailed their other lottery picks (Curry-2009, Thompson-2011).
no.7: PF Greg Monroe (Georgetown), Detroit Pistons
Monroe has turned into a pretty good NBA big man.
no.8: SF Al-Farouq Aminu (Wake Forest), Los Angeles Clippers
Aminu finally figured out his game in 2015. He’s a solid second rotation NBA player.
no.9: SF Gordon Hayward (Butler), Utah Jazz
Hayward came from a small school, but has developed into the Jazz team leader and star.
no.10: SF Paul George (Fresno St), Indiana Pacers
PG is a top 8 or 9 NBA player. It’s surprising he fell to ten in the draft.
