The NBA combine has come and gone, and thus begins draft season.
Even though the 2014 NBA playoffs are rolling along with two noteworthy matchups in the penultimate round, we're inching closer to the June 26 selection process, allowing notable prospects to continue rising or falling on draft boards all the while.
Speaking of inching, those inches mattered quite a lot in Chicago, as prospects jumped, ran and extended their arms to impress onlooking scouts and general managers. Of course, they shot the ball, participated in athletic drills and engaged in a bit of live action as well.
It's hard for stocks to sink too drastically during the combine, but well-prepared prospects can certainly help themselves rather significantly. Plenty of them did, whether through surprising measurements, quick feet or clearly improved shooting strokes.
So, how do the participants in Chicago's festivities stack up, both against one another and the foreign/elite prospects who weren't in attendance?
