He scored 55 pts against GSW, then he didnt do much, till playoffs when he exploded. The Hawks had no answer.
I'd question if you're referring to pre-draft or pre-NCAA season for Wall. There were many draft experts, gurus, columnists suggesting Wall wasn't the only choice. Yeah many were hyping him like crazy, but not all of them. It's not like Turner didn't get any love.

In terms of this season, he has definitely not lived up to expectations, though some questioned whether those expectations were unrealistic.

Derozan is a bit underrated in my opinion. The guy works really hard, and doest get much appreaciation OUTSIDE of toronto.
Demar exceeds Lawson in every stat except for assists and 3 point percentage.
Ty lawson hasnt improved much since last year. His FG% and 3-pt% way off. whereas Demar has taken his game up to another level. Saying Demar derozan is better than Ty IMO isnt an over hype. Im jus sayin

omg dude are u kiddin me?.......... NOBODY, and i repeat NOBODY was stupid enuf to even think that they were gonna take turner over wall. Prospects said Wall was the sure-fire thing and RITE AFTER him you had to go with Turner. I remember Draft experts saying that this class had a lot of options after Wall- like Turner , Demarcus, and Favors, nevertheless the NBA commentators and fans all said that Wall will be #1. Only Ohio State fanboyz were defending Evan. Who cares if these so called "experts" said that there were other options like turner and etc.. They were oviously wrong, and i think they should be dethroned from their "expert" title.

So should experts that picked wall over Cousins be booted cause his stats are better? Your logic is foolish. Your answers are assumptive. I've acknowledged Wall was favoured, but many questions existed and some thought Wall wasn't a consensus. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

He'll be 'up' on some lists next year. Also, I just want to say the last few years, some people have stated how 'weak' the past drafts have been (hear that every year), but there's some real nice players on that top 20 list.

Just shows you how valuable drafts are.
Turner also going through a adjustment at Philly. At Ohio State he dominated the ball. It was always in his hands. At Philly he is now playing off the ball.

Some games he struggles but other game he puts up stat lines like 12points 8rebounds 7assist. The talent is there. If he puts it all together he can be a really solid player.
