B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistJune 25, 2012

The future is now and the stakes are high.

The 2012 NBA draft is every franchise's opportunity to grab the league's next superstar, but history has proven only a select few prospects ever reach their full potential.

Sure, Anthony Davis could be the next Hakeem Olajuwon—but he could also go down in history as the next great bust of the hoops world, alongside the Kwame Browns and Michael Olowokandis.

In the NBA, nothing is granted—everything is earned. 

In this Bleacher Report Productions series, we compare each 2012 NBA draft prospect to their best-case and worst-case pro counterparts, also offering predictions on how each incoming pro will pan out.
