    i am not sure what is says about the Pac12 that Josh Smith is #2 on this list. Either A) the pac12 lacks top end talent or B) draft express refuses to give up hope on Josh Smith. Personally I am going with B. The guy can't even crack the starting lineup. I would pick Crabbe, Wilcox, Collier, Motum and Randle (among others) ahead of Smith.

    I remember J. Smith freshmen year when Draft Express had him as a first round pick. He may never make it down the court much less into an NBA locker room.

    Problem will always be with the NBA, they value potential over impact too much. I guarantee there's numerous NBA GM's out there right now thinking "You know, if we can just get Smith in to our training program, he'll put up 20 & 10".

    Insert Kiki vandeweghe joke - Skita doesn't need to work out against NBA or NCAA players, he looked GREAT against our assistant coaches in drills.....

    CBS has Dre as the 36th best player in the country. 3rd overall in the Pac-12, only behind yet to be cleared UCLA frosh Shabazz(#3) and his frosh teammate Kyle Anderson (#20).

    funny seeing Mike Moser at #6 on that CBS list. When they played head to head:

    Dre: 12 points, 16 boards
    Mosher: 10 points, 9 boards

    Most fun game I've ever been to. Can't wait to get another trip to Vegas and wherever we play in the tournament again this year

    Not sure what their definition of "bright" is in terms of NBA, but there needs to be improvement on offense (as we've so often debated)
