It was no secret that the 2013 NBA Draft was "weak". That's all we heard about last year and through the early offseason, but did anybody envision just how bad it really was going to be?
Here in the DMV we see Otto Porter getting splinters on the bench and looking completely out of place the rare times he has played, but he's not the only rookie making fans question their GM's decision making and draft selection process.
If the NBA held a re-draft today, nearly 50 games into the season, the #1 pick would probably be a guy that has yet to play one second in the NBA this season. No this isn't a "we should have drafted Nerlens Noel piece", but the truth is, aside from Michael Carter Williams, Victor Oladipo, and Trey Burke, this year's rookie class is epically horrendous. At least Noel is still the great unknown and truthfully couldn't play much worse than Anthony Bennett has for the Cavaliers, even if Noel played on just his one good leg.
My guess at a 2013 re-draft based on what we've seen so far would go like this:
1. Cavaliers: Nerlens Noel- They've seen Bennett, at least Noel couldn't be worse, right?
3. Wizards: Tim Hardaway Jr.- This one came down to three players: Oladipo, Hardaway, and Antetokounmpo. I'd take Hardaway who is shooting almost 42% from 3PT, capable of becoming a "supersub" at SG/SF (with Webster), and would be a great spot up shooter to complement John Wall.
How do you think it would play out?
