2012 NBA Draft Grades: Washington Wizards Fans Like, Maybe Love Bradley Beal

The Washington Wizards were at the mercy of the 2012 NBA Draft gods when the Charlotte Bobcats reportedly shopped their No. 2 pick around, but things fell their way regardless: They got Florida freshman (and St. Louis star) Bradley Beal, and now they can build their team around young point guard John Wall and his new No. 1 option. Draft grades so far from the usual analysts have been positive, but the Wizards' draft grades per the fans at Bullets Forever weren't quite perfect.

The draft as a whole, as of this writing, gets an A or A- from 32%; a B from 51%; a C for 11%; and a D from 1%. There are a lot of variables here--it depends on whether the curve is as high as, say, a contemporary university's, and how much of the hesitance is coming from their other pick, the unknown European Tomas Satoransky. But while the Wizards required a lot of good fortune to get their man in the first place, some fans, at least, would just as soon have seen them miss.
