Point guard crop is weak for 2010 draft
The 2009 NBA draft may go down as one of the greatest point guard drafts of all time. A whopping 12 point guards were picked in the first round, including five in the lottery.
The early returns have been terrific.
And the rest of the gang, including Jrue Holiday (No. 17), Jeff Teague (No. 19), Eric Maynor (No. 20), Darren Collison (No. 21), Rodrigue Beaubois (No. 25) and Toney Douglas (No. 29) have all shown promise when given the playing time.
And that doesn't even count No. 5 pick Ricky Rubio, who's plying his wares overseas for FC Barcelona.
Next year, though, the results are going to be very, very different. While 2009 may have been one of the best point guard drafts ever, the 2010 draft is shaping up to be one of the worst ever.
