Does anyone really believe Alabi will ever pan out to be a good NBA player, a rotation player?
100% agreed jeffb. look at Greg Oden (injury prone), thabeet as you mentioned, Patrick O'Bryant (Picked 9th overall 2006). Center picked at top picks have shown to never pan out as they projected to be.
POINT GUARDS do. Look through the drafts, there are more projected point guards that pan out than projected centers.
