    There is an article on Forbs about 2014 Draft that made me wonder if 2014 draft has been overhyped. Any comments?

    Alex,

    Interesting article. Over the weekend I caught as similar conversation between Bill Simmons and Doug Collins. Simmons & DC discussed how it now appears this ’14 class is filled with great players, but NOT one franchise changing stud. I think some of that recent change of heart has to do with Wiggins’ up and down play and the the fact that Parker and Duke have struggled at times. Also in general, “experts” keep looking for the next LeBron and he’s a once in a lifetime player, so as scouts get more tape on the young kids in the ’14 Draft class they are going to suffer by comparison. Whatever the reason, the hype on June’s crop of prospetcs seems to be calming down a bit.

    Thanks for reading & commenting.
