Marc Gasol

Sometimes the experts get it wrong. Sometimes the players they think have “it” don’t. And sometimes guys they overlook end up shocking the world. Expert schmexpert!

While as many as 90 percent of NBA second round draft picks won’t play ten years in the NBA, we can’t overlook the 10 percent that will.

Drafted in the second round in 2007 (48th overall!) Gasol has enjoyed an excellent career. Where are the experts now?

  • 3-time NBA all star
  • NBA defensive player of the year
  • Career 77% free throws
  • Career 8 rebounds per game
  • Career 14 points per game
  • 53 NBA playoff games

So, pretty good for the 48th pick.

No matter what the experts are telling you, take it all with a grain of salt.

You might be the next Marc Gasol.
