I think Boris Diaw deserves a higher grade than C and definetely higher than F! He is playing around 25 mins per game and is a very good all-around player. He should get a B!

It's very early to say guys are busts. You need at least 3, maybe 5 years to say if a player is really a bust. You can grade them for their performance this year, but many teams didn't draft for immediate impact.

The Pistons didn't draft Darko to start this year. The Nuggets didn't draft Skita to start immediately. In 3 years, if they are still not getting PT, then we can start the bust talk.

Look at Joe Johnson and Kwame. They have been labeled busts, but are finally coming on this season.

Given the Pistons' roster and contract situation, I think they made the right move. They already have a good team, and a project pick like Darko makes sense for them. Picking Anthony would bring immediate results, but what if Darko becomes a superstar?

What are you basing this grade on? He was never signed and is still playing in Europe...

I think Keith Bogans deserves an A. Most people didnt even think he'd stay in the league and he is now holding his own starting as an undersized SF and second round pick.

Wade deserves an A from everybody, he is starting to into the next Greatest thing, all he has to do is to stay healthy, and in two, three years he would a top 15 player IMO.

How can everyone give Travis Outlaw a F-. This kid has played like 25 minutes total this year, probably less.

Same goes with Perkins, Ebi and maby Bell too.

Just cuz a player isnt getting PT doesnt mean he is bad. Outlaw has Miles, Patterson, sometimes Wallace and sometimes Woods at SF right now.

Its rediclous to give a guy that gets no PT a F-.

Also, whiterino...how can u give Ebi a C and Outlaw a F-?

What has Ebi shown that Outlaw hasnt. They are both gonna be good players but are trapped on the bench.

Also, you gave Beastly a C-. This guy really deserves a F. Miami has no real low post backups and Beastley has had a actual opportunity to start yet showed so little that a undrafted rookie and Loren Woods are getting PT instead of him.

Awnser

A-great pickup and good choice
B-solid pickup
C-okay pickup coulda done better
D-bad pick shoulda picked someone else
F-what were they thinking?? very bad pick
1.LeBron James: A+, Bring attention and great game to a hopeless basketball city.

2.Darkko Milicek C, Impossible to measure in one season, reports from camp a good...

3.carmelo anthony A+: It´s the first score option in the 6th, 7th team in the West. That says a lot.

4.cris bosh A+: Best post player in the Draft, He has the tools to be a great PF, he just need body strengh.

5.Dwanye Wade A+: Best guard in the draft, and playing great when he isn´t hurt...

6.Cris Kaman B: Nice talent center. If he improve the next 2-3 seasons this pick could became a A++.

7.Kirk Hinrich A+: Nice point guard, problably the best of the draftm although I don´t think he will devemlop a lot.

8.tj ford B: Nice player who sould learn how to shoot the ball, at least from 15foot,

9.mike sweetney D: The Knicks didn´t need another undersized PF, they should have draft a different player. Sweetney will only prove if he is a player in other team 2-3 years down the road.

10.jarvis hayes A+: Great season for a 10th pick, can became a really reliable SF. I can think of a better pick for Wiz.

11.mickael pietrus: He haven´t played, So it is impossible to judge.

12.nick collison: First need to get health, then he will be real tested.

13.marcus banks D: It looks like that Barbosa or Diaw were better picks, but he need more time to prove his vlaue.

14.luke ridnour B: It looks like a good pick-up, but he isn´t ready to be truly evaluated.

15.reece gaines F: This pick proved that Orlando sucked at the draft, since Penny.

16.troy bell: He need play time to be truly evaluated, and he play behind two very solids points.

17.zarko cabarkapa B+: He looked good before the injury. He is another who needs time to be truly evaluated.

18.david west B: He was a proven player, and he meshed alright with the NO. If he play for Heat of Magic he would be a nice post player with nice rebounds numbers.

19.alksander pavlovic B: Nice player this far on the draft. He can became a nice role player.

20.dantay jones D: He didn´t looked good in draft night, and still doesn´t. Maybe (a big one) can become a nice bench player down the road.

21.boris diaw A: Nice player for a 21th pick, If he played for a better organization (Net for instance), he could be a great role player. HE is already a nice defender.

22. Zoran planic D: He couldn´t get playing time in a team without a reserve PG. Maybe next season he will look better.

23.travis outlaw: Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road.

24.brian cook B: Looked a like a nice player when was health.

25.carlos delfino Need first to get in NBA.

26.ndubi ebi Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road.

27.kendrick perkins Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road.

28.leandro barbosa A: Nice trade from Phoenix who get a nice potential player. He looked lost in some games and great in anothers. Maybe he will be a great 3 guard in a 3 guard rotantion with J Johnson and Vunavic.

29.josh howard A+ Problably the best player for the position he was drafted. He maybe won´t be a much better player that what he is now.

30.Maciej Lampe Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road.

31.jason kapono C: Solid second round pick.

32.luke walton C: Solid second round pick.

33.Jerome Beasley C: Solid second round pick, but it isn´t looking good that he couldn´t get playing time in a weak front court Heat team.

34.Sofoclis Schorziantiz - only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road, but he isn´t looked good in italia league altough he isn´t get a lot fo play time.

35.Szymon Szewczyk - N/A

36.Mario Austin: He couldn´t get a roster spot on the Bulls, but maybe next season.

37.Travis Hansen - C: Solid pick, although he is already 26.

38.Steve Blake B+: Nice pick, getting better with time. He looks like a steal and reliable back-up PG.

39.Slavko Vranes - F Wasted pick

40.Derrick Zimmerman - F Wasted pick

41.Willie Green B: Looks like a really nice second round player

42.zaur pachilla B+: He looks promising, although he doesn´t get play time in a Weak front court in Florida.

43.keith bogans B: Nice player getting starting job on a bad Magic team.

44.Malick Badiane - Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road.

45.Matt Bonner - F Wasted pick.

46.Sani Becirovic - Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road, but he isn´t looking good at Krka.

47.Mo Williams - C: He is looking solid, at least better then Gaines and Planicic.

48.James Lang - F: Wasted pick

49.James Jones - Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road,, although make the Pacers roster was a good sign.

50.Pacciles Morlende - Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road

51.kyle korver B: Looks like a nice role player for this down on the draft.

52.Remon Van Der Herre - F: Wasted pick already traded twice. He will problalby never play in the NBA.

53.Tommy Smith - ??

54.Nedzad Sonanovic - Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road

55.Rick Rickert - Can only be truly evaluated 3 years down the road, although he isn´t looking good in italy.

I only went off of what I know now, you are right Ebi hasn't played more than Outlaw, neither has Perkins, but talk from coaching staffs and around the league from what I have read is that Perkins will be a Huge force in another year and is getting better every day, the Celts wanted to keep him in a muscle training program this year and never intended to play him too much but say in practice he's one of the best rebounders and enforcers already. Ebi also is getting good reviews but isn't playing this year because frankly he's too small and they said he really needs to bulk up because right now the NBA guys could blow him over but the Wolves do think he'll be very good in a couple years. For Outlaw what I've read is that he made a huge mistake not going to school, that he's really not ready, hasn't shown much in practice and that he's very small. As a Blazers fan you may have more information on this than I do and maybe you've heard better news on him. It's hard to rank these guys that are so young.
As for the guy who said I made homer picks by giving Hunter and Perkins both B's, no, I just have a lot of info on them to know they are gonna be good. I already explained Perkins, as for Hunter, he's been playing and is about to crack in to the rotation as a regular, he's a rebounding Monster, and at the #56 pick how the heck can you do better than that!
As for Andreas Glyndiakis, the last pick in the draft, they say if he had come out this year he'd be in the lottery so even though he hasn't played yet I say that gets a pretty good grade for the last pick in the draft.
