So I know you watch a lot of games, and I'm sure you'll continue to post here regularly, which is fine. But the reason you get a lot of flak isn't because you have a different opinion. Everyone here has different opinions and its fun to debate. The issue is you state yours so authoritatively, and post like you are absolutely right and nobody else can be. This is what annoys many posters.
When you say things like
One more thing:
Now, as to your list of "sleepers". For one, you can't say good starter or all star level, theres a huge disparity there. Pick one, do you mean actual all-star, or just a starter? Otherwise it leaves things wide open to too much argument. All-stars are go to players, good starters are often role players who fill a position solidly. Your list doesn't have any all-stars, but maybe a fringe one.
But to me, he seems more like a Francisco Garcia like player. Garcia averaged 12-13 points his 3rd and 4th year, but these guys are just good shooters who are weak, and will end up as journeyman role players. I don't think he's skilled enough or has the mentality to be any more than a nice shooter off the bench.
So Javale is the only potential all-star, but wouldn't ever be considered a go-to star. Chandler and Speights are solid starters, with Wayne and Thabeet being starters on the right team. Everyone else are role players, and I don't think any will break out into becoming an all-star.

K were all fans here not looking to fight. Consider it done.
2 Chainz is "different." YOU are better described as arrogant and just down-right mean. There are plenty of people like that, don't see how that's different.
Lurking and judging you since 2008
The problem, GMiT, is the way you present yourself. I don't know if it's because of the inefficiencies of online forums or if you truly are this way in person, but you just come off so damn arrogant and hostile. Like I've said elsewhere a few months back, this is my only issue with you. Your opinions are just that, opinions, and I give them to you and let you own them freely, disagree vehemently as I may (and often do, as is the case with your thread here).
But then you start threads, like this one for example, with "I told you so," when you really didn't tell us...Jr has had a good run of games this last couple weeks but he's no All Star. Then you follow that up with how proficient you are at fantasy basketball as if that makes you a superior talent evaluator. Then you almost ask for flak when you tell us that you're probably going to get flak for your list of 10 potential All Stars if given the right situation. Then the names you list are so off-the-wall....I would have so much more respect for you if you were being tongue-in-cheek or poking fun at yourself...but it seems as if you are being deadly serious when you say Terence Williams can be an All Star. We've had enough of a career sample size to see how this isn't going to happen, and when you say it very well could happen you open yourself up to the flak you already saw coming, which I think adds some credence to the speculation of your trollish nature.
I hope you stay a member here and keep posting but I also want to let you know if you want to be a respected member here, you're going about it the wrong way.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
Bobcats - Blue Devils - Panthers - Hurricanes
are there reasons you start threads with your name so we can brace ourselves for what were about to witness?
Lets get right to it:
10. Wesley Johnson:
I liked Johnson from the start, he had a promising rookie season. After that it has gone downhill; he spent a lot of time on the bench. the last month however the Suns gave him a chance to play, resulting in 12,6ppg along with 4,0rpg and 1,2spg.
9. Terrence Williams:
Talented player, good all-around game, but he holds the ball too much in my opinion and didn't he had some attitude problems?
8. Jeremy Evans:
Reminds me of Derrick Brown (with more upsides I might add), a good player who knows what his strengths are. The only problem is that he has 1,5 years left on his contract and that it's not very likely that the Jazz will let him go.
7. Hasheem Thabeet:
Good size, good shot blocker, same problem as Evans has.
6. Trevor Booker:
He's doing great in Washington, but I don't know what will happen when he's getting the attention of defenders.
5. Brandan Wright:
Wright WAS one of the most undervalued players in the league, but after what he showed in absence of Nowitzki I think that's all in the past.
4. Wayne Ellington:
You've said it all in your description, but with Ben Gordon and Ramon Sessions already on the team I don't think he's a good fit for the Bobcats.
3. Mareese Speights:
In short: too good for the 'Cats
2b. Matt Barnes:
Good 3-point shooter, Great defender. The future of Jeffrey Taylor? only time will tell. Fantastic player for every team to have around.
2a. Javale Mcgee:
1. Wilson Chandler
The best player on this list: good scorer, good rebounder. Due to his contract and his talent I don't see him playing for the Bobcats.
