Entirely Too Early Four Word Reviews of the 2008 Draft Class

We're an eighth of the way in to the season, so why not prematurely judge the contributions of 20 year olds? Four words to encapsulate the impact the first round of this year's draft has had.

(Sidenote: Is Mayo wearing Dunks? I've never noticed that before.)

Matt and I on the ones and twos. Literally.

1 Derrick Rose - Better Than Expected/Jesus.
2 Michael Beasley - wasted on the Heat
3 O.J. Mayo - Missiles and guns fun.
4 Russell Westbrook - the Thunder suck regardless
5 Kevin Love - Needs more mutton chops.
6 Danilo Gallinari - sorry about your back
7 Eric Gordon - Is in Basketball Hell.
8 Joe Alexander - basically he's Mike Mamula
9 D.J. Augustin - someone tailor his pants
10 Brook Lopez - Dude, the NBA rocks!
11 Jerryd Bayless- Would start anywhere else.
12 Jason Thompson - far better than expected
13 Brandon Rush - Not in Kansas anymore.
14 Anthony Randolph - please play this guy
15 Robin Lopez - A barrage of imagery.
16 Marreese Speights - nothing special, nothing wasted
17 Roy Hibbert - Not enough playing time.
18 JaVale McGee - better on the internet
19 J.J. Hickson - Why not in Erie?
20 Alexis Ajinca - surprisingly, an actual Frenchman
21 Ryan Anderson - His name is Darkman.
22 Courtney Lee - outplayed by JJ Redick
23 Kosta Koufos - Should trim back hair.
24 Serge Ibaka - more like Serge Zwicker
25 Nicolas Batum - Pritchard wins again, again.
26 George Hill - another Spurs late find
27 Darrell Arthur - Every other play sucks/rules.
28 Donte Greene - play this guy too
29 D.J. White - His jaw awfully hurts.
30 J.R. Giddens - Wikipedia page has stabbing
