DraftExpress: No one talked about Dwyane Wade or Russell Westbrook until they were well into their college career, but that doesn't seem to have hurt them

Deuce Bello is clearly the best athlete on the floor right now, and I'm not even sure that its even close. The next Russell Westbrook?

I can't wait to see how Rubio, Llull and the rest of Spain's guards are able to deal w/the size, length & athleticism of Russell Westbrook.

* For the NBA and International leagues, top 25s reflect the actual top 25 list. Due to the number of college players, we've limited top 25s in NCAA to only draft prospects which better reflects the level of competition and what we feel provides highlights of a more interesting subset. Top 25s of college stats prior to 2005 will be extremely inaccurate due to the minimal number of college profiles from 2004 and before in our database
