    PORTSMOUTH, Va. -- "Why do we even bother?" one GM said with his hands in his head. "I'm not sure there's one guy here who could make a difference on an NBA roster."

    Another assistant GM was even more scathing. "Of those 10 high school kids we saw at the Hoop Summit last weekend, how many of them could outplay everyone here right now," he asked rhetorically. "I can think of eight off the top of my head. Now everyone knows why were so in love with the teenagers. When you see what we have had to watch all year, you'd be in love too."
