Grantland's The 2012 YouTube Draft The top five picks, if nothing else mattered but their highlight reels

The articles opening tells you all you need to know.

"Welcome to the Second Annual YouTube Dunk Video Draft! Last year, we brought you the glory of Jonas Valanciunas, Donatas Motiejunas, Jon "P.I.M.P." Leuer, and Jan "The Dunking Ninja" Vesely. This year, the rules are the same — we evaluated every NBA hopeful on the merits of his highlight video, taking into account production value, font choice, video filters, dunk ferocity, block ferocity, and the always-vital music choice. The draft order was determined by who GMs would pick if they had nothing to go on but the coolness of each player's YouTube video. That's why you don't see Harrison Barnes, Anthony Davis, or Jared Sullinger on this list. Because their videos were terrible."

I just read this article today - but still thought it was worth posting even if the draft has already happened.

One of the videos Grantland's examines Kostas Papanikolaou, 21 years old, Greece, projected second-round pick.:
