Vander Blue 

Post#1 » by Swish28 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 2:41 pm

I didn't watch much college ball, but I remember this guy in the tournament being pretty good. I know he played SG but I heard he is transitioning to PG. I don't see him in any mock drafts so is he just not an NBA talent?

He's an incredible athlete, and that's just about it. Plays really hard, but doesn't have a jump shot, and definitely doesn't project the skills to be a PG in the NBA.

Some team in the second round will likely take a chance on him.

He declared because Wade told him he was ready...

Can't shoot at all.

Too short to be a SG. Can't play point. Not terribly athletic.

Entering the draft was another in a long line of dumb decisions by Vander.

Badger fan by chance?

But entering the draft really wasnt a good decision for him. He doesnt have the handles to play PG and he isnt one who makes plays for others. His shot was getting better, but still needs a ton of work. Has the ability to play D and good instincts, but gets lazy at times. I think he will be lucky to get drafted at all. At his best, he's a poor man's Tony Allen.

I am a Badger fan. Doesn't make my post any less true though.

:D
