Anthony Bennett potentially a pick for the Wiz? He's only 19 and is dominating as a freshman. Athletic freak who has an NBA body. Also has a nice shooting touch (74% FT).

Shabazz Muhammad Dropped 13 Pounds, Feels More Explosive

Shabazz Muhammad is down to 222 pounds after debuting at around 235 pounds against Georgetown.

"It definitely impacted my athletic ability, and everyone could see that I wasn't that athletic," Muhammad said of the extra weight. "Today in practice, I was just so explosive. I could feel it."

Muhammad is adjusting to the responsibility of monitoring what he eats and has switched to a diet of mostly salads and water.

"It's completely new," Muhammad said. "Ever since I've been on my own in college, you can eat whatever you want. I think that's just a maturity thing. ... It's really taken me a long way."

Muhammad was averaging 16 points and five rebounds per game, despite his limited athleticism.

"You can see it in him compared to three weeks ago," Bruins coach Ben Howland said. "He's in better physical condition. You can see his body; he's lost a few pounds."

Other than his prototype size and athleticism.. I love his aggresive mentality, that willingness to stepon opponents throats.. He has been heavy and will score even better. Will be a dominating scorer which we really need. By end of season his status will be obvious.major flaw in his game is assists. But improving handle andjumpshot and we have a top flight shooting guard to play in tandem with beal and wall. You can start him at sg or alongside heal and wall. He has a Kobe /Jordan type focus. He will go first in next years draft. He might end up out of our reach if we win some games

Victor Oladipo is really starting to pick his game up. He might have one of the quickest first steps in the draft to go along with superb athleticism. Jumper is not there yet but has a decent form to develop it.

Very early draft boards for me:

1st round:

Shabazz Muhammed
Alex Len
Anthony Bennett (LOVE this kid & I'm assuming he measures fine for a PF)
Cody Zeller
Nerlens Noel
Alex Poythress
Rudy Gobert
Otto Porter
Mason Plumlee

2nd Round (much more variable obviously; who knows if half these guys will be available):

LeBryan Nash
Jeff Withey
Myck Kabongo
Leo Westermann
Aaron Craft
Patric Young
Victor Oladipo
Kyle Anderson
Brandon Dawson
Lorenzo Brown

Thoughts? Agreements/disagreements?

Feeling the effects of his new diet, Shabazz Muhammad said early this week that he was becoming more and more explosive.

In UCLA's 95-53 win over Prairie View A&M on Saturday night, he proved it.

The historically black college from central Texas didn't provide the stiffest competition at Pauley Pavilion, but Muhammad wasn't exactly stuffing the box score against the likes of Cal State Northridge or Cal Poly.

As the Bruins (7-3) played just their second game in 11 days, the nation's top recruit scored a career-high 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting.

After shaving off over 10 pounds in the past two weeks, he matched his previous career-high of 21 points with 16:25 still left in the second half.

From the little I've seen of Muhammad he doesn't seem like that much of a team player. Now I've only seen him in parts of two games, but he wasn't the jaw-dropping athlete that I expected to see given all the hype.

Leslie looks indifferent too often. Like he will be one of those players who shows up when they feel like it.

By committing (through trades) $30 million+ per year at the three front court positions, on top of using four of the last 1st round picks on those same positions, and with Wall at PG, EG pretty much set it up where it would have been a little awkward to take anything but a SG with the #3. Maybe he took the wrong SG, but how would he justify taking Drummond after acquiring Nene, Okafor, and Seraphin? (Other than saying, "Guys, remember that trade I just made? Turns out I f**ked up.") I'm assuming if they landed the #1 pick, they wouldn't have traded for Okafor, but it is Terd and Ernie, so who knows?



Oh, I'm not someone whose down on Beal. I know a lot of people have been. I'm not, my preference was MKG, who I actually thought were were gonna get (had some fear we'd grab Barnes instead), was shocked to see him go #2, knew his personality was right up Jordan's alley, but still figured they'd go safer and get a second tier lock in building block in Beal. When MKG and Davis were gone the best options were Beal and Drummond in my view and I never thought for a second we'd take Drummond. It was just sick to see a guy with his upside fall that far. We never seem to be the team to steal a blue chipper who falls that far. He would have been perfect if not for the all world moronic trade.

As it is, its fine, we're gonna stink this year, maybe we get one more piece and Im happy with Beal, he'll become an all star, or just slightly below all star level 2 in my book. Too smart, too hard working, too talented to just be mediocre. He'll be a guy we can plug in and start at the 2 and try to find our superstar at the 3, 4 or 5 this year or beyond.

I just was bothered by the Drummond hate on the site, and the lack of team building sense that you could see in the hate for him.

I'm still watching to see how his outside shots fall, could fill the 3- spot if he proves to be a legitimate perimeter threat. I was thinking on early on that the Wizards coud trade the top pick for a player, pick up extra picks and then bring Anthony Bennett and another 1st round player onboard. As of now I hold him as an undersized PF; I compare him to Zach Randolph, but with two or three times as much athleticism. UNLV vs UNC should be good.

I just came across Ben Mclemore, At 6-5, this guy is super athletic with a great Jumpshot. He has the potential to be the next Wade/Ray Allen. The same was said about Beal(still only 19, has a chance to still become great), but i believe that Mclemore has a greater athletic ability and better at creating his own shot. Watch out for him, he is slowly climbing up the draft boards.

Why should anyone look out for him when he plays the same position that Beal does?

Why not?? We were talking about C.J McCollum, he plays the same position as John Wall. I also believe the Wizards don't have the luxury to pick by position. If Mclemore solidifies himself and becomes the best player in the draft, you pick him.
