With the NBA draft looming, Jeff examines this year's draft class.

While talking about the Atlanta Hawks' needs, a listener stated that the Hawks need a superstar in this draft. Jeff went on and said that the Hawks don't need a superstar. He also stated that there are only three legitimate superstars in the NBA (LeBron James, Steph Curry, & Kevin Durant).

]While Jeff does not think a superstar is in this draft, he does think that there are two really good big men in in Deandre Ayton and Marvin Bagley. Even with those two, he says they will not be superstars and big men are rarely superstars in the NBA.

As of recent, the only big men are only Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitzki and there is no Durant or Dirk in this draft.
