ACC Top NBA Prospects
1.Harrison Barnes-Some say he could start for half of the NBA teams right now..But sometimes you can't believe the Hype..They said they same thing about Felipe Lopez a few years ago..Some are saying his athleticism & skills are comparable to Kobe..They should let the players play a game before putting added pressure on them..But Barnes is very mature for his age..Has put in as much work on the classroom as he has on the court..
2.Kyrie Irving-Watching him play..I see a young Chris Paul..Irving is a traditional point guard and can score in alot of different ways..Coach K has a very deep squad this year..So Irving should ease
3.John Henson-So much was expect from Henson when he arrived on campus..But he didn't live up to those expectations..everyone is raving about how great Henson has looked in workouts this summer..He spent time working on both his game and his body..
4.Chris Singleton-Singleton can be dominating at times..Then totally invisible the next..Will this be the year he puts it all together?
5.Mason Plumlee-Mason might be 1 of the most improved players in the country next season..Some say he'll be a better pro than Singler..
6.C.J Leslie-6'9 athlete with a nice perimeter game..But at 6'9 he must continue to work on his post game..
7.Kyle Singler-Old school player that has great intangibles..Good shooter ..Someone will take a chance on him in the 1st round..
8.Tony Woods-Is a banger and aggressive rebounder..Might be 1 of those sleepers that stock raises after workouts..
9.Malcolm Delaney-Solid guard that might get some looks in the late 1st or 2nd round..Good scorer, has good point guard skills.
10.Tyler Zeller-Skilled 7 footer..But must get stronger if he wants to play at next level....
I like the Shumpert kid from GT. He can play PG or SG, can shoot, pass and drive. Finish, not so much but a good solid player.
yeah..i like Shumpert also..but he doesnt finish plays well...but if he improves hand work on his game he could be another Van Exel...
I don't understand how Zeller is top 10. The man's been a walking injury since he got to UNC.
Good 1 man.....Why is Shumpert left off?????
Who said mason is much improved. From what I heard from my old teammates who played in the nc pro am he still has no post moves and just looks no different from last year skill wise
heard the same thing about Henson looking great in workouts last year around this time although he stepped it up at the end of the year
curious to see c.j. Very good athlete but raw skill wise. Right now he's alot like derius miles with slightly less handles
Jordan Williams is a better player right now then mason by the way
Reggie bullock isn't as good as some of the guys on the lost but he's a Better NBA prospect
is a beast got his daddy jumper and better ball handling skills then stephen this should be his lights out year
Honestly i feel as tho CJ Leslie should easily be 3 on this list. He is going to surprise alot of people.
I disagree with Seth Curry, and I saw almost every single one of his Liberty games since they broadcast them where I live. First off Curry is even shorter and smaller than Stephen. While he can still work on his body his wiry frame really doesn't have the capacity to be much bigger. Secondly while Seth may have better ballhandling than Stephen who is sometimes loose, Seth doesn't have a 10th of his PG skills. Really Seth doesn't have any PG skills. He lacks the vision and passing dexterity that Stephen possesses. Also Seth while still a tremendous shooter he is not as good as his brother especially at deep shooting. All in all I think Seth can be a nice 10 ppg scorer off the bench and a nice college career but I don't view him as much of a prospect even though because of his lineage and looks it's so easy to say he's the next Stephen. When it comes down to it while he is a pretty nice shooter, he's small and frail, can't play the point, and constantly did poorly on the defensive side. He'll need to improve by leaps and bounds both skills and physically in order to become a legit NBA prospect. I've seen far greater scorers not make it into the league. His name will keep him on the minds of scouts but he has lots to prove.
I don't think we can really say much about Seth since it's been a year since he's played in a college game. He's had a year to work on his flaws so it should be interesting to see how much he's improved. I do know last summer he looked very good in that college Olympic thing. If I'm not mistaken he lead the team in scoring or was top three and had a nice amount of assists
I doubt very seriously that he's the same player now that he was at liberty
they both have to be on this list.....Malcom Delaney = my ACC POY pick although he is ranked about right as a prospect on this list.....
No Reggie Bullock or Shumpert there much better prospects then Zeller or Tony Woods
Look out for Durand Scott of Miami, Tracy Smith of N.C. State, Devin Booker of Clemson, Iman Shumpert of Georgia Tech, and Jordan Williams of Maryland. All of them will be legit NBA prospects by the end of next season.
I think Mfon Udofia will have a great break year...
I think he will too. He struggled in the heart of the conference swing last year, but before that he showed promise and was a strong scorer and defender. I'd like to see him show more PG skills, but he has the potential to be a Jarrett Jack-type player for GT.
I can see Sean mosley having a very good year although he's not much if a NBA prospect
Yeah Mosley should break out too....
I always liked him but I never thought he fit in well with Purnell's system.....
I think if anyone is a prospect on Wake its Ari Stewart over Tony Woods.....
Milton Jennings will emerge Wesley Witherspoon style next year. He has the potential to be a versatile defender in the NBA, even though he'll probably never be much of a scorer. Think Dominic McGuire
idk who comes off this list but Mike Snaer has to be on here.....he is gonna be the breakout player in the ACC this year....
CJ not in the top 3? Funny
JT Terrell of Wake is a top 10 prospects in the ACC also
the top 3 are right but the wrong order but CJ should be #4 I think....maybe Reggie Bullock
yeah C.J. should be top3 ..actually i'm not so super high on Irving like others so i would think twice who is #2
he could very easily put up the numbers to be ACC FOY though......but I still think he is a tiny notch below Irving and Barnes as a prospect.....
C.J. Leslie is NOT going to be ACC Fr. of the Year. Barnes and Irivng will put up much better numbers than him. I think Leslie will get like 10 or 11 ppg and 5 rpg.
he is putting up better numbers than that.....that might be the kind of numbers Barnes and Irving put up with all the talent surrounding them....Leslie has some talent around him but he is gonna have to carry much more of the load than Barnes and Irving will....but I still like them better as pro prospects.....
You act like Tracy Smith wasn't an All-ACC guy last year, Scott Wood won't see more time after a good Fr. season, and Javier Gonzalez and Ryan Harrow won't need the ball to be effective. Lorenzo Brown will also see time. Leslie isn't guy that will come in and score a bunch of points. I think his impact will be similar to that of Thaddeus Young's.
just UNC and Duke are loaded x 1,000,000.....Scott Wood, Indiana product (shoots guns in air)....
Unc isn't particularly loaded. Not like duke. And Irving will have a hard time putting up great numbers with the boat load of guards on that team
