This time one year ago, many draft pundits were deploring the weakness of the 2009 NBA Draft.
I was among them. Despite my man crush on Ricky Rubio, I thought the 2009 Draft was full of maybes and that there were no sure things at the top of the draft.
In my 2009 Draft Guide, I found myself looking ahead to the 2010 Draft more than concentrating on the draft at hand.
One year later, the 2009 Draft produced at least three future All-Stars while the 2010 Draft looks to have only two surefire future All-Stars (John Wall and Evan Turner).
However, it's years like this where the draft actually becomes interesting. Because there is a lack of great players, there are about five billion different scenarios that can happen on draft night.
That's exactly why I thought it was time to do a 2010 NBA Draft Guide and attempt to explore all things NBA Draft.
This Draft Guide consists of the following:
1. Mock Draft
2. Big Board/Career Projections
3. Five Veteran Players Most Likely To Be Traded Draft Night
4. Five Bold Predictions
Because of Bleacher Report's software only allows for 50 slides per article, I will have to split the Draft Guide into two parts.
In part one, I will reveal my mock draft and Big Board.
Tomorrow, in part two, I will discuss players most likely to be traded on draft night and give my five bold predictions regarding the 2010 NBA Draft.
With that said, let's begin the 2010 NBA Draft Guide.
