Carter-Williams is worse and older than Burke and Smart.

Tall PGs doesn't work anymore. Lebron & Hedo are great ball handlers, and they can't play PG for long period of time. IMO the perfect PG should be less than 6'4, plenty of size and still has all the speed and quickness of a smaller guy.

Just like with Reece Gaines, we can't get drawn to the height. MCW is a good college player but I think he'll struggle in the NBA. Comparatively, Marcus Smart seems like a someone built for the NBA.

Burke's got a smooth game and has Michigan's offense running extremely well now but at barely 6' I'm a little worried about getting too hyped. I understand CP3's that height but he's CP3 and Burke's doesn't have the lightning quick speed of Ty Lawson either.

There have really only ever been 2 PG's 6'7 and above who were successful in the NBA. Unless you want to count Shaun Livingston.

I watched him play a couple weeks ago and he didn't impress me THAT much. He got lit up by a guard that I've played with at L.A who I didn't think was that good personally.

Hill is projected to be better than the Harrisons?

No both twins are projected to be better as of now.....but not by much

Andrew Harrison

STRENGTHS
Ability to Create
Competitiveness
Size for Position

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
Mid-Range Game
Shooting Off Dribble

One of the more interesting prospects in the 2013 class, Harrison isn't your prototypical lead guard. With that said, at 6-foot-5 Harrison can do things many point guards can't and that's one of the many reason he's such a highly regarded prospect. Harrison is a tough and competitive guard that can create opportunities for others, but also score it at a high level. He's one of the top guards in the 2013 class.

Aaron Harrison

STRENGTHS
3-Point Range
Aggressive Scorer
Attack Mode

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
Mid-Range Game

One of the top scorers in the 2013 class, Harrison is tough, competitive and always looking to put up points. At 6-foot-5, Harrison has good size for the position and he's a strong guard that always seems to be in attack mode. He gets to the rim and finishes with ease, but he's also a very good long range shooter. Harrison is a confident scorer and one that can put up high point totals in a hurry.

Kasey Hill

STRENGTHS
Ability to Create
Ballhandling
Basketball IQ

AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
Size for Position
Strength

He is a pure point guard, but Hill also has the ability to score when needed. A smart player, he does a good job of getting into the lane and finishing or finding open teammates. Also he plays with a great pace and never gets rushed. Now he isn't the biggest player, and could benefit from more time in the weight room, but that is nitpicking and Hill does so many things to help his team win.

Carter-Williams is so overrated it makes my head hurt. He's not a playmaking passer. He's just a passer. There's a difference. He's not setting them up for easy scores. He's just passing to guys who make shots.

The reason why I think Shabazz is the superior wing prospect in this draft:
Shabazz Muhammad wears a goofy smile and nerdy glasses, but beneath them pumps the cold blood of a basketball player who proudly calls himself a "killer" on the court.

David Halberstam saw something similar in Michael Jordan: a ferocious competitive rage.

It's this quality that Muhammad says defines him most, the trait the UCLA freshman star says made him who he is today.

"I've always had a killer instinct," Muhammad says, "and that's what separated me."

And Muhammad has carried this mentality to UCLA, where coaches and players laud his effort in practice and his drive to stay late at the gym most nights.

"He's a really fierce competitor, with everything we do, everywhere," says his freshman teammate Kyle Anderson.

Adds fellow freshman guard Jordan Adams: "He plays to win. He does not take plays off. He's always aggressive."

He also loves to take big shots that strike a dagger into opponents' hearts, such as the two clutch three-point shots he buried in overtime during UCLA's upset of then-No. 7 Missouri.

Though a freshman, Muhammad has jumped on UCLA teammates whose effort he thought was lacking at times. But Muhammad says he wouldn't do so unless there was a comfort level among them all.

And, Muhammad adds, he's still learning to temper his killer-instinct temper.

"It's a really good thing to have, when it's appropriate to use it," he says.
