I truly hope Bird understands this going into the draft. Role players are great if surrounded by a star or two, not when it makes up the whole teamNick Spadafore (Syracuse NY)
Who will be this years draft surprise?? I want to say Andy Rautins from SU would be that player with his work ethic and passion to stick around and contribute. Maybe late first round!? 3's and steals are always a great way to make a name for your self....your thoughts?

Athleticism rules in the NBA. Work ethic and passion works great in college, but not on the next level, so I'd temper my expectations for Rautins...who is a great college player.
Anyone else hoping that this year Bird goes against his philisophy of "singles" and goes for the "home run"
I think we need to stop going after aplayer just because they spent 3 or more years in college. The majority of the time that a player stays in college more than 2 years is because they are simply not good enough
