Quotables

Draft Combine-CBS sports analyst
“Andrew Nicholson – no one looked better in the workout setting than the former St. Bonnies star from Canada. He’s so skilled – and made shots from everywhere. At one point, I watched him drill 15 consecutive shots from just about every spot on the court.”


Richmond Coach Chris Mooney
"I think he doesn't have many weaknesses. I wouldn't pick out one thing, just continuing to refine his game, continuing to help his team win and more. But I don't think there's one thing I would put on him. I think he's definitely a guy who's going to have some opportunities in the NBA."


St.Louis Coach Rick Majerus
"I saw that number 44, Henry Aaron I used to think 44, now I think Nicholson when I see 44. Obviously a first-round draft pick, probably a lotto pick... the most talented player in the league and a phenomenal personality and very unselfish. Last year he beat us with his passing skills. He has every imaginable skill you would want."


Umass Coach Derek Kellog
"If you don't double-team him, he's going for 25 and 15 [points and rebounds]. I've seen a lot of good big guys, and he's an NBA player. He's probably the most valuable player to a team in our league because of what he means to that team and that program."


Saint Joseph's Coach Phil Martelli
"Nicholson's a pro. I hope that he gets the experience of getting invited if there's going to be a draft next year, if that league ever comes back. I think that he has the potential to get his name called. He's multitalented, humble. It's not a lot of guys that can be all-league and all-defensive. I think that in our league, he's almost an impossible matchup. If you don't decide right now that you're going to double-team him and double-team him in a variety of ways, then you're just asking him to hang 35 on you...I've talked to the NBA people. They're still doing their homework, asking about league and guys and I have no question telling them he's a must-see."


-La Salle coach Dr. John Giannini
"I'm telling you, it's like he was raised at big man camp. His footwork is just astounding, and that's how he gets those shots ... It's really special what he can do with the ball in his hands."

"(Andrew) Nicholson proved why he is one of the top players in the Atlantic 10. He scored 24 points despite the fact we double-teamed him every time he touched the ball on the block."

This kid is going to be our PF of the future. easily. Considering we have no real post players. he's going to get plenty alot of touches, and anyone who knows about this kid in college can tell you, he was basically the guy that was double teamed by opponents every game.

His 4 years in college gave him alot of time to refine his offensive arsenal and his post moves are fluid. I mean, he literally already has a better offensive repertoire then dwight, and he hasn't played a single nba game.

Hes got it all, great face up game (college #1 in overall jump-shot attempts, 2nd most efficient shooter at 1.09), he can drive, has the left hook and right hook shot on either side of the block, great use of pivot, fakes, up and unders, is great at the shimmy, and can do the dropstep layup easily. to top it off he isnt a bad free throw shooter and best of all, hes a smart passer out of the traps.

He will make dwight howards offensive game look boring to watch, god i wont miss watching him throw up those hook shots all game long.

Not trying to overhype, but this could is the real deal as our pf of the future, just ship davis out now.

Watched the Dayton game.....I'm almost 100% sure that Nicholson can't be guarded 1 on 1 on the block....so skilled man....easy to see why he got doubled and triple teamed in college he was damn near unstoppable.....even in Summer league teams had to respect him got doubled there too lol......what i think he has to do now is work on his body and get better at putting the ball on the floor along with protecting the ball aka cutting down the turnovers.....it will do him good to put on about 10-15 pounds.....but overall man he has everything in his bag of tricks man and his jumper is probably more automatic than Bass's is......

he was a non-lottery pick for a reason. I hope he develops, but you guys are putting way too much hopes on a player that will need some time to adjust.

thanks for the harkless game finds, ChildishGambino, found only one nicholson:

http://espn.go.com/watchespn/player/_/s ... /condensed
St. Bonaventure vs. #22 Illinois

kind of a sub-par game for nicholson:
17 pts, 8 reb, 0 ast, 1 blk, 3 stl, 7-18 fg, 3-6 ft

low-scoring game and the bonnies lose, but nicholson outplays 11th overall pick meyers leonard

he's a bit bigger now but yeah he needs to bulk up a bit but that will come with time....i believe i remember him being listed 240 when i was watching the combine on Nbatv and it's been a while since then wouldn't surprise me if he's 245 maybe 250 by now.....

Didn't he have a meniscus issue at one point? Or am I thinking of someone else?
