More Busts Than Usual in 2020 NBA Draft

    Given that we didn't get March Madness and had a truncated season in 2020 for college basketball, what do you think is the likelihood of us seeing more busts coming out of the 2020 NBA Draft? More than usual, or do you think scouts have been paying attention long before March Madness.

    My guess is this was one of the hardest years since forever for talent evaluators, who gotta rely heavily on the NCAA tournament to show the potential of the best players in the country. March Madness shows how they play on the national stage, with the most eyeballs. Without that, feels a lot more like guess work.

    Anthony Edwards went #1 overall this year, to Minnesota. He is a guard out of Georgia. Wonder how correctly drafted he was over the rest of the top ten??

    2. James Wiseman - Warriors
    3. LaMelo Ball - Hornets
    4. Patrick Williams - Bulls
    5. Isaac Okoro - Cavs
    6. Onyeka Okongwu - Hawks
    7. Killian Hayes - Pistons
    8. Obi Toppin - Knicks
    9. Deni Avdija - Wizards
    10. Jalen Smith - Suns

    Let's keep this thread going and revisit after this group gets a year or two under their belt in the NBA. See if the % of busts is higher, normal or who knows, even less, than an average NBA draft. Real curious about that.
