Randolph Childress


I was so confused as a kid when he wasn't any good in the NBA.


he was a tweener. really more of a SG, and not one with special athleticism or shooting ability. I thought when he went to Detroit things would work out, because Grant Hill was really their primary ballhandler, but I think the Pistons preferred surrounding Grant with shooters and/or defenders on the wing.

Recker was a combo guard like Sura. You might be thinking of Luke Jackson.

Luke Recker out of Iowa? Damn my memory isn't as sharp as it once was. I remember when we played them in the NIT.

How could you have an opinion on Beaubois, Batum, and Ibaka?

I had read a lot about Batum for awhile and watched a game or two of his. As far as Beaubois and Ibaka are concerned, I just went off of Youtube highlights and what Fran and scouts said. You know, that tells their whole tape. Nathan Jawaii is another guy I remember looking a lot at.

Could have sworn Roddy Buckets was gonna be another Russell Westbrook.

I thought kyrie Irving would be a bust for sure, and Greg oden is my other guy who I though was going to dominate. Michael Beasley Was the other guy I always keep in mind about being a total bust. I haven't even heard of him in about 3 years.

Kevin Durant - signed Colin Cowherd

for me a few really good ones have been mentioned. Reddick and Noah are guys I thought would be limited role players against NBA talent - both are legit

Carlos Boozer is better than I thought too - I didn't think he had the athleticism or polish at his size to put up the numbers he has.

Surprised no one mentioned Drummond, considering there were people on HT who wouldn't have taken him with the 10th pick. He might turn out to be the 2nd best player in the draft.

Kevin Love, Noah, and Redick are the runaway winners here. Redick understandable and Noah too but I'm surprised so many people weren't sold on Love. He had a very mature game early on, although I guess his lack of athleticism turned a lot of people off
