Chad Ford overrates International prospects. Look at what he did with Darko. Combine that with his lack of NBA knowledge and his inability to write good articles, this article holds no merit in my opinon.
First off, the structure of the article throws it off. I don't think anyone in their right mind could say that Dwight Howard doesn't have more potential than any of those goes. Then, to talk potential and not include Sebastian Telfair basically means that you should stop being an NBA writer.
The only thing Josh Smith does is block shots and slam dunk baskets. He has no jumper at all. If he couldn't dunk no one would know who he is. I like Childress a lot better. He is a much more AA player.
