Layups: Ed Weiland’s Draft Preview (Pt. I)

Posted by Neil Paine on June 18, 2009

For those who are still recovering from the NBA Finals, here's a reminder: the NBA Draft is a week from today! Yes, time has flown by for me, too!

Luckily, Ed Weiland of HoopsAnalyst is back for what must be the 5th or 6th year in a row, bringing us what I consider must-read material, hands down the best draft previews available on the entire internet. Ed doesn't succumb to hype or anecdotal analysis; his rankings are strictly by the numbers, and he looks at the key indicators that have predicted success -- and failure -- in the past. Here are the links to Part I of his lengthy preview:

Seriously, everyone out there who's interested in the Draft should read this stuff.

    Thanks, Neil.

    Even though I don't have any vested interest in this year's NBA Draft, never hurts to gain some knowledge about what to expect from the '09 prospects.

    Great stuff Ed. Will be interesting to see in five years how these point guards shake out.

    One of the more productive point guards in recent history(Lawson) versus untapped/unknown potential of Jennings, Holiday, Evans, Rubio, Teague, etc.

    Nice job. Looking forward to the rest of the evaluations!
