Quality Big Men are just harder to find!


The more you think about which player the Sixers should take at the #2 selection, the more a big man makes too much sense. No disrespect to Evan Turner, but wing players are much easier to find than quality big men.

Derrick Favors has all the necessary attributes to become a star on the next level. He is a player who can defend, rebound, block shots, fill the lane on the fast break and the potential to be an impact inside scorer. Yes, that word potential comes to mind when we talk about Favors, opposed to Turner, who is the immediate impact player. Throughout the net, many people believe Turner is almost a finished product, without big upside that Favors possesses. Now whenever you talk about potential, you never know if the player will ever reach it. This is why the draft process is a total crap shoot. The NBA Draft is built on potential and high ceiling, unless a can't miss player comes around.

We all have a pretty good feeling that both Brand & Dalembert, do not have a long-term future with the team. Outside of these two, we just have a few forward prospects, with no real player who can effectively play the Center position. Finding a quality big man is very difficult to fill. You look around the league and see the other young front court players who have made their team successful: Howard, Bosh, Hortford, Amare etc. The majority of these teams weren't in the playoffs, until their big men came on board. Do these Forwards/Centers have polished offensive games? No, they are still developing and helping their teams win in the meantime. 

Unless a Guard is in the mold of Chris Paul, Deron Williams, Lebron or Durant, you take the big man every single time. I seen Evan Turner enough to know he will be very good, but in my opinion, he isn't the same level as the 4 players mentioned. When you get a chance to draft the next Howard or Amare, you go get him. Finding a two guard is much easier to find than the quality big man!
