Do you know who the boom and bust prospects of the 2012 NBA Draft are going to be? Well then you'd better speak up now, or forever hold your peace. Here's the deal: I have a really hard time caring about "I told you player X would be a beast/bust" talk when it first appears on my radar as an ex post facto claim rooted in some hypothetical conversation I can't quite prove never existed. Even worse is when a "prediction" never develops beyond a nebulous guess that becomes impossible to scrutinize or analyze -- things like "player X won't be a big-time player in the league" OR "that team will regret taking player X at pick Y."
Things will be different this year. Predictions will be placed out in the open and on the record
