The 2010 NBA draft won't suffer from the same dour appraisals as the 2009 draft. In fact, with so many top underclassmen opting not to enter their names in '09, next year's draft could be one of the strongest in years, with several potential superstars and plenty of depth, particularly in the lottery.

If the 2009 draft was a gold mine full of point guards, the 2010 draft is rich in power forwards, with 11 ranked among the top 30 players. Add in another five centers and you can call next year's draft "Revenge of the Bigs."
