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


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.

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:


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.

What a game for Brandon Paul against Gonzaga. I've seen him a ton and I've seen him play very well but yesterday's performance was one of the best on a college level that I have seen in the last couple of years. He was everywhere - shooting, slashing, defending, blocking shots... incredible performance...

Do you live on the West Coast Mo? Or is the Germany location on your profile accurate?

Yeeesh what time was it there? I was trying to catch the game last night but it came on at like 11pm I had been up since 5am so I fell out..

How did the Zags look? Particularly Pangos and Elijah Harris?

I think I went to bed at like 6 in the morning or something. Well, it's the weekend... :D

Gonzaga came out on fire and with great energy, lots of defensive pressure and their frontline really dominated against a small Illini team. But they had nobody who could defend Paul and his teammates got encouraged by his performance. Overall that Gonzaga team is not very athletic at certain positions nor quick which hurts them. Harris was solid but his game really hasn't developed much over the last three years. Pangos has no real point guard ability in my eyes and is basically a short sharpshooter who has no place in the NBA. Who I like is Kelly Olynyk, their 7 foot center. He's a hustle player in the Varejao mold who could find a place in the pros...

Dont normally watch cbk but very unimpressed with zeller today. Is he really worthy of a top pick?

I don't understand why many people are considering Zeller to be the #1 pick in the draft. Is 'Bazz not entering the draft? I thought Bazz was the consensus #1 pick...Anyone care to explain?

Bazz hasn’t looked that great either, Zeller’s in the conversation. Bazz would probably go number 1 on potential alone though, him or Noel, but it’s early..

That was until he got horribly overweight after not being cleared to play early.

Anthony Bennett as already discussed in this thread is the most impressive prospect so far this year. He has just been spectacular.
