07:04 AM ET 06.23 | The annual talent grab that is the NBA draft occasionally leads to more questions -- for instance, How long will it take for a player to shine? -- than answers. In the meantime, it all starts with the Washington Wizards' selection of Kentucky point guard John Wall. And while I don't mean to suggest that the Wizards should take his teammate DeMarcus Cousins or Ohio State's Evan Turner, I do think there are some knocks on Wall's game -- explosive as he may be -- that seldom get discussed. Like, well, he sort of can't shoot. Hey, but Rajon Rondo couldn't shoot coming out of Kentucky and still can't at times, and he's done OK for himself and the Celtics.
