Kentucky has the worst team that they've had since Calipari took over, wouldnt be surprised if Nerlens gets exposed and drops out of his expected top-3 range, especially with guys like McAdoo poised for a big season


Are we restricted from trading our #1 pick before the draft -- due to owing next pick to Denver?

Or - can we trade the pick after the season -- before the draft (say draft night)?

He can play a stretch 4 (in college) because he has good range and a soft touch on his jumper. He's been good at the FT Line too, so when he gets the ball, good things usually happen.


I think your forgetting how good Larry Johnson was...


Oh believe me, LJ was my favorite player of all time. LJ came to UNLV as a junior and dominated. I'm saying Bennett shares a lot of similarities to him and is only a freshman. I hope he can live up to his potential.

It would be awesome if Shabazz dissapointed all year and we could somehow get him in the draft. Pressey would also be a nice piece to add in the draft this season.

Flip Pressey is nice but who can he guard in the NBA? I think right now I’d rather have Kabongo if I was a GM

Regarding points guards, Keith Appling has taken a big time step forward this year for Michigan State and is finally the type of special player and leader Izzo wants at PG. Michael Carter-Williams is developing into a special prospect aswell. Archie Goodwin has all the tools in the world but he has A LOT to learn.

I'm still trying to watch Michael Carter-Williams play (passed out before last nights game) but his assist, steals, and rebound numbers have been impressive. Hopefully his poors fg% and questions about his D will keep him in our range :lol:

Only other pg I that hasn't been mentionis Russ Smith from Louisville. If he can keep his 3 point shooting up, that plus his speed and defense could get him into the first round.

Lorenzo Brown 2, stock has dropped like a rock due to his ridiculously bad start to the season but he’s talented and has great size for the position at 6’4.

Do you think Russ possesses the decision making ability to play point in the NBA?

Honestly? No, but he might be able to get there. Right now he looks more like an instant offense and energy guy/pest on D to me. He has toned down his crazy shot selection tho which is a step in the right direction.

Lorenzo's bad start wouldn't hurt his stock as much if he wasn't already 22 ( and on his way to 23 before training camps start next year).

Yeah I don’t buy him (Russ) being a legit PG prospect but the scouts like him and in his defense I’ve only seen Ville play once this season. One thing we do know about Russ is he can definitely defend the position..

True regarding Lo Brown, if he turns it around I could see him as a late first to early second round guy though..

All this PG talk and no one mentions Trey Burke?

He's getting less minutes and his assist numbers have jumped by almost 3 from his freshman season..

Obviously lacks size, but is that even a concern in today's NBA? :lol:

Yeah Russ can definitely defend his position and that's something you can't always say for most guys :lol: . Russ also has his transition scoring and ability to get to the line going for him, if only he could play pg consistently :lol: . Agreed on Brown, any higher seems too risky imo.

Thought people already talked about him :lol: . Him and Smart look like the top 2 pgs for 2013, unless Kabongo (if he ever gets to play this year) makes it a debate .

LOVE Burke. True point guard, great vision, can shoot it, and can attack the paint. I think he's going to be a real good.
