NBA general managers and personnel executives do not always make the right decisions.
That statement does not come as a shock to anyone who pays attention to the NBA Draft, which has been littered with busts like Hasheem Thabeet, Joe Alexander and Adam Morrison in the last five years alone.
Execs have naturally gotten a little better at evaluating college and international players over the last few years, simply because of the amount of information available to them. Game tape, scouting reports and mock drafts are available nearly everywhere, and there are more draft camps and workout dates than ever before.
Well, I've got one more bit of information for them. In the slides that follow, I'm actually going to tell them who they should select in the NBA Draft. Simple as that. Given who is on the board at the time of their selection, I am telling NBA general managers who the right selection would be.
I'm also going to tell you who they probably will select. Of course, if there's a difference in opinions, it's always best to assume I'm right.
