Burned By Aldridge

Two Drafts ago, the NBA restocked itself with a superb class of point guards, headed by Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry and Brandon Jennings. Right behind them were the likes of Darren Collison, Jrue Holliday, Roddy Beaubois, Ty Lawson, Toney Douglas, Patty Mills, Eric Maynor and Jeff Teague. Last year's Draft didn't have the quantity at the position compared with 2009, but it had a clear-cut, NBA-ready stud in Kentucky's John Wall, who went No. 1 overall to Washington.

 

The really upsetting thing is how this utterly damning assessment of failure is thrown in offhand to a fairly comprehensive review of the point guard prospects (negligible, unless you want a bench scorer) in the coming draft. Flynn isn't even mentioned, but Mills, the 55th pick, is. How did we miss completely in this draft? More to the point, how are we going to fare in a draft without the reserves of quality available in '09? Should be fun. And by fun, I of course mean devastatingly awful.
