Sign Of Things To Come? Very Weak Draft?

With Jared Sullinger promising he would be back at Ohio State for his Sophomore season, citing it being the want to win a national championship. Yahoo/Rivals.com cover that story below:

But I have a different idea as to why Sullinger is staying, and how that could be a very bad sign for this draft.  Now everybody *Jump... Jump*.

Players in the NBA , current and future, are looking at the NFL and watching the CBA/ Lockout situation going on in the most popular game in the US. And the thing that is scary is our favorite hoops league is headed down the same path, except that they have a much larger gap to traverse then the NFL does. Young college players see this and realize they might not be playing hoops next year for a league that could be shut down for a good portion of the year.

Sullinger, staying. Irving, had an injury plagued season and has dropped down some draft boards. Might it be wiser for him to stay at Duke for another year of learning under Coach K?  Personally, I don't think Derrick Williams of Arizona will ever have a higher stock then now, so I fully expect him to come out.  However, Perry Jones has been rocketing down mock boards due to his lack on an NCAA appearance. But, if our beloved pups get hosed by the draft fates once again and draft 3-5 and are left with the choice between Kemba Walker, The Jimmer and Kyle Singler... When in a normal year they would have been late lottery picks? I'll I can say is...

I'm glad Utah tanked it, and Rudy Gay is injured... Those picks would be closer to second rounders in a weak class like this.
