With all the hype surrounding the 2014 draft class, one would hope that a Lebron James or Kobe Bryant would emerge. The jury is still out on a Kobe emerging since the Mamba got off to a slow start as a rookie. There’s no doubt that a Lebron hasn’t been spotted since none of these rooks have taken the league by storm.
Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker have been solid and will be very good NBA players and could possibly become Kobe’s, i.e. all time greats. 3 of the top 10 picks have suffered big injuries and will miss a lot of time (Embiid, Gordon, Randle), but they have an opportunity to be really good players.
Watch out for Doug McDermott in Chicago and Elfrid Payton in Orlando. Those two guys could be regulars at All-Star weekend.
