We are all brilliant in hindsight. We saw the busts before they busted. We knew the surprises before they surprised. Or at least that’s what we say since, unlike NBA executives, we aren’t publicly on the hook for our knowledge and draft insight. But if the past has proved anything, it is that nothing is a sure thing. Some players exceed their potential, and some fail to live up to expectations. So as we prepare for this year’s NBA draft, trying to figure out who will be the surprises and who will be the flops, it’s time to own up to the truth.
