The NBA Draft is like Christmas to me. I get to finally find out how right or wrong I was about this draft. Teams have now paved the way for the future of their team. All of the surprise is now gone and everything is set. Players got over drafted or under drafted based on where they were taken. Only the future will tell whether the teams made the right or wrong choice. Reaches may look like steals and steals may be reaches further along their careers. This draft has plenty of players that can breakout and become superstars if everything breaks out. The draft was absolutely entertaining and it was interesting to see how far some of the high ranked players fell. I gave grades for each pick in the draft up until 32.
