Travis Bader 

Post#1 » by Dr Positivity » Tue May 27, 2014 6:47 pm

Just saw he shot 39.9% from 3 on 11 attempts a game and 94.4% from FT line... whaaat lol. 6'6.5 wingspan for a SG and looks to have poor but not he-can't-play athleticism. NBA player right?
1. Using a team's play in games their star is injured should send you to SSS jail
2. ORTG/DRTG ranks are connected in back and forth play and energy expenditure
3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

he's not a terrible athlete. players like him have been drafted. he's a specialist for sure. i'd give him less of a chance to get drafted than andre dawkins simply because of dawkins' better size. bader does have a quick release though, nice elevation and he shoots well on the move. he can do a little more than spot up, but not much.

I think that Bader should be drafted ahead of Dawkins, assuming either do get drafted. Dawkins has looked awful at everything but shooting, and was apparently out of shape at the PIT. He's a total sieve. Bader at least is a high-effort guy and he isn't a bad athlete, just below average.

He's basically a shooting specialists since he can't do much of anything with the ball in his hands. Run him off screens or spot him up in a corner. I suppose he could make it as a role player coming off the bench.

even if dawkins was out of shape, he still has more to work with physically with his bigger frame and typical nba SG length. bader is short armed with a small frame. given his mass and length, he essentially has PG size.
