Over the three weeks leading up to the NBA Draft,'s panel of experts will answer the hot questions leading up to selection day.

Question 8: Who is the most overrated player in the Draft?

Steve Lappas
Julian Wright. He's gonna go pretty high in this draft based on his athleticism. The question is, does he have the skill to play on the perimeter in the NBA.
Pete Gillen
I think there are two. One is Joakim Noah, who plays hard as heck. I love his intensity, I love his aggression, but he can't shoot the ball, and he's not real strong or physical. The NBA game is different with physically, and you have to be able to shoot and that's something he can't do. After last year's first championship he would've been the first pick, now he's slipping. I think he's a little overrated because he can't shoot and he's gotta be more physical. The second one is Acie Law from Texas A&M. He's a great college player but he's not real quick, not a consistent shooter and doesn't get in the lane as much as you need. I think he'll be a little bit of a disappointment as a pro player.
Sean Farnham
You have to look at a guy like Joakim Noah. He had a great collegiate career but he was more a system player. A team that's gonna draft him inside that Top 10 is gonna expect him to contribute immediately, as a guy that's gonna get 15 points, 10 rebounds. I don't think that's gonna be Joakim Noah at the next level.
