2009 NBA Draft Skills Challenge: Best Scorers
While the 2009 NBA Draft isn't loaded with deadly long-range bombers, there are definitely some guys adept at getting the ball in the hoop. Blake Griffin isn't a traditional scorer from the SG or SF position, but he can score the ball in a variety of ways. Stephen Curry can light it up with the best of them, and some of our experts considered him the best scorer available, even better than the probable #1 pick. The highly efficient James Harden appears in everyone's lists, but opinion is mixed. Meanwhile, Jodie Meeks and Marcus Thornton shredded the SEC last year, but our opinions on those guys were highly scattered. Dionte Christmas, Tyrese Rice, and Jermaine Taylor were some of the less-heralded prospects given some love.
