The players that will be the riskiest to draft this year. They could turn out great, they could totally suck -- The moment of truth has arrived, here are my top ten most risky players.

1. Yao Ming
2. Nikoloz Tskilishvili
3. Nene Hilario
4. Qyntel Woods
5. Jared Jeffries
6. Curtis Borchardt
7. Jiri Welsh
8. Marucs Haislip
9. Amare Stoudamire
10. DaJuan Wagner

Good list..... Ming is definately the biggest risk in this years draft. Hopefully he doesn't turn out like the risk that went #1 last year....

i really think........

that any foreign player is iffy, because you never know how they will really turn out. Its not like you have seen them in the U.S , so usually its based on European competition, which is often tough but not always.

I think Woods is a little shaky because he kind of just fell from space onto the radar screen. Also, his JUCO team had a losing record, so he could very well be a bust in the making.....

Are you saying Kwame is a bust? If he's a bust so is Chandler and Curry. Chandler and Curry went 2nd and 4th respectively. Neither put up the stats Gasol did.....Do if youare saying Kwame sucks because of his low stats, then the Bulls made a mistake in not telling the Clipz to draft Gasol, then trade him for Brand. According to stats, Gasol did better his rooie year than any other rookie, so he will be the best player then from this year's class....NO

Point is: Don't look at stats when comparing rookies, some are more NBA ready than others.

No, I'm saying that he didn't work out like the Wiz thought. They thought he would be starting by mid-season. I base my opinions on what I have seen in actual games Kwame has played. He looked scared and confused, the whole season!! I'm not saying he can't turn it around, but the Rockets are going to be looking for move of an impact from Ming.....

By the Way, Chandler and Curry had better seasons, not just statistically, but they have built up confidence, something Kwame hasn't. He will have to spend next year doing that. He is actually a year behind the twin-toddlers....
