The NBA draft is quickly approaching, and with it the hits and misses that will help define the immediate future of the NBA. Anthony Davis is the consensus No. 1 pick, but will he really be the superstar the Hornets need? What about the mostly-unheralded players immediately after him? We won't find out for a while which of these picks worked out (and which definitely did not), but it's clear that the draft will have far-reaching ramifications.
Anthony Davis might make the Hornets contenders for years to come, or he could go the way of No. 1 picks who just didn't pan out.
Bobcats' No. 2 pick?
The Bobcats are unlikely to turn around their franchise in one year, but keeping the No. 2 pick could give fans a reason to cheer in 2012-13.
Jared Sullinger's back issues have been a major concern for teams in the draft, but he could be a steal if he stays healthy.
