I’ve actually had this in the back burner now because I didn’t want to scoop the sites I liked. I do this for a hobby. They get paid. I think?
Now that a sufficient amount of them have done their prep work. I’m going to release my own findings. Here is their work.
I’m not going to go over my complete list of busts. In fact, I dont know how to ‘define’ the term overrated or not. I’m just going on the mock draft analysis people are doing. The spectacular Steve Von Horn did an entire chart on the consensus Mock Draft of several sites, and that’s what I’m going to use to determine which player is overrated.
Let’s go from the top of the list.On the side, i’ve listed the top overrated prospects. I’ve also ranked them according to their position. I’m going to bring out some boxscores now.
Okay, back to analysis.
Harrison Barnes is bad. But look at Austin Rivers. -3.84 PONA7!
PONA7 is Points Over/Under NBA Average of 7. Translation: He’s 4 points below your Average NBA player. Just saying. That’s some giant growth he’s going to need. Like Magic.
I’m going to publish this little tidbit and then work on Harrison Barnes, PJ3, Meyers, and Marshall later. If you want go to the blogspot to see the better ranking Young FADs (Fresh Athletic Deadbets).
CAVEAT: This list only judges them based on their historic box scores. If they look sturdy, have long arms, are really tall, have good cheekbones or have good NBA DNA, that’s great for them. At the end of the day, box scores are more important to me. Do you want the valedictorian to operate on your loved one or do you want the guy with the longest fingers? This is a bad analogy, yes. I am expert bad analogist.
