Updated Hoopus Draft Scores

I put this in the apathetic game wrap post, but for the sake of future links in the sidebar, I'm putting it all by its lonesome below the fold.

Another reminder is that the Hoopus Score attempts to place a value on the probability that a college player will be able to duplicate what he does in the NCAA in the pros.  It's not saying that Ty Lawson is the best player to come out of college in the last 4 years; rather, that he had the best chance to do what he did in college in the pros.  30 seems to be the number to look for.  Also keep in mind that there is a long way to go in the season and I will be surprised if this year's crop of players puts out anyone with a sustained effort on the level of guys like Lawson, Love, Curry, DMC, Rose, Beasley, and Griffin. 

Here's what the updated numbers look like:

 

 

  1. Kemba Walker PG UConn 43.0255946843854
  2. Derrick Williams PF Arizona 38.6137479261269

Is there anyone else you want me to add to the list?  I think it's shaping up to be a very, very weak draft and we don't even know how the CBA might affect the whole process, which could serve to weaken it even more.
