Now I fully believe we should draft a guy from the Congo. These names are priceless.
I have had my beers and am not mad now. If he can actually defend as advertised it wont be a terrible pick, I was just so surprised that we didnt take singleton
Billups / Douglas / Crittenton(?)
Fields / Shumpert / Walker
Carmelo / Williams
Amar'e / Williams / Harrellson
Turiaf / Jordan / Harrellson
IDK what this is.... I know they gotta make more moves because this is far from a contender
We must of drafted him because his name rhymes with our team's nickname...CHUMPS.
Sure, he's a measuring tape kid... just not a game tape prospect. He can run, jump and has long arms... problem is he can't shoot or pass.
Then, as if it couldn;t get worse... we actually spend money to draft a player nobody would take (Josh Harrellson). Only the KNICKS could take a player who made me long for Brian Zoubek.
I was on board IF Jimmer, Thompson, Singleton, Burks were gone.
I just don't think drafting Shumpert over Singelton makes sense.
Pick was going to boil down to Donatas Motiejunas, Kenneth Faried or Shumpert... if most mocks were correct and the top 16 projected were gone.
Motiejunas is a true D'antoni C. Better than Mozgov. Faried can rebound. Shumpert is the athlete we could hopefully mold.
I would have been fine with either of these 3. But to pass on Singleton? ODD in my book. Odd indeed.
Well, his bball intelligence and instinct aren't great. Not a great passer. Wont work the pick and roll. So he's not really a PG. He can't shoot (especially the 3) so he's not the ideal SG. So what is he?
He was a solid 3 year player for GA Tech, in the ACC. He is one of the more physically talented combo guards in this draft.
SO... can we help him him shoot better? Why not? But how long will that take. At the end of the day, he was on my list... so I'll stop making fun of him. He had a great game against UNC, and even against FLA St.
PLUS, this kid can rebound. So, he's sort of like a poor man's version of T-Evans.
