    JaJuan Johnson – Purdue.

    he should have stayed in the draft. he was gonna be a first round pick; not a lottery pick, but somewhere in the 20s. still, thats a guaranteed (3yr) contract.

    he aint gonna grow more by staying in college. so i thought he should have come out.

    Donatas Motiejunas blew off the NBA LMAO. He would have been a lottery pick.

    Got this from

    I’m just gonna post the top 2

    2. Stevy Worah-Ozimo (Slippery Rock)
    Worah-Ozimo might be the oddest name on this list and that’s not just because he has an unusual last name. It’s because he didn’t play basketball this season. In fact, we’re not even sure if he’s on Slippery Rock’s basketball team, although that’s where he’s listed on the early entry list. Worah-Ozimo played the 2008-09 season at North Carolina Central, where he averaged less than 10 PPG. After that he just disappeared from the face of the earth. Until now.


    1. John Sloan (Huntingdon (AL) College)
    We think this is a joke but we don’t want to laugh at someone’s dream of making the NBA. Sloan, a 5-11 guard, didn’t start a single game for Division III Huntingdon College and averaged about 10 minutes of playing time. He collected 20 assists to 23 turnovers and averaged two points a game. It should be a real toss up for the No. 1 overall pick: John Sloan or John Wall?

    Update – May 3rd: Huntingdon has put a press release on its site entitled “Statement Concerning John Sloan and the NBA Draft.” It reads:

    “Huntingdon College Director of Athletics Buzz Phillips has announced that former student-athlete John Sloan has jokingly placed his name among the early entries for the upcoming NBA Draft.

    This is in no way a serious submission and all correspondence on this matter should go directly to John Sloan.”

    @ aron that might be true. However if I was him,I would take the money and run! I would most definitely would have gone to the NBA. Most probably the scouts will have more time to scout him and find out that he is not as good as advertised.
