There's never a 'sure thing' when it comes to the NBA Draft. Scouts can make mistakes as there are plenty of intangibles that can't be measured; such as their work ethic, development, and even luck.
This year won't be the exception to that rule. Even though we have some potential superstars in Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley, and Jalen Green; we know that some other players will take the league by storm even if no one sees them coming.
