God dammit, if they can all be good with no stars there's no excuse for us.
Id also say these are more realistic models to build after than OKC, where we would need to hit on 3 NBA-All star types to reach that level.

What really sucks is we could have drafted most of the stars from these teams.
Bad drafting has killed us. I know it's been said time and time before but this sucks.
Raymond Felton = Andrew Bynum (could've traded 5 & 13 for Chris Paul)
Sean May = Danny Granger
Ammo= Rudy Gay
Brandan Wright/ Jason Richardson = Joakim Noah
Jared Dudley = Wilson Chandler ( Dudley was decent value)
DJ = Roy Hibbet (everyone mentions Brook Lopez as well )
Alexis Ajinca = Serge Ibaka, George Hill, Batum
No team gets them all right but, we have bern historically bad in the draft....Imagine how much better we could be if only we had gotten 1 of those picks right.
At least we have done pretty good with our last 3 picks
Hendo, Smack, and Kemba
We need 2 or 3 more strong drafts and we can be as good as those teams.
We have blown it in the draft, but those picks were with Higgins as GM. Looking at the players taken after Kemba and Bismack, I think Cho made the right picks. I can only point out a couple players who may end up with similar careers, but none appear to have the potential of a future star.
