Despite a long-held regard as possibly one of the greatest draft classes in NBA history, the 2012 NBA draft eventually came down to a single-browed superstar and a myriad of question marks.
But as the 2012 (strike-free) NBA season's debut nears, a glance at the 30 first-rounders suggests that it may take more than just having the most talked-about brow since wrestling's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis to capture the Rookie of the Year award.
These draft picks may no longer appear to be the locks that many scouts once tabbed them as, but the talent level is still evident up and down the draft board.
Not all of these players will have the skill set (or opportunity) to challenge Davis for the hardware, but all 30 enter the league with a defining skill that they'll bring to their new franchise.
