This kid is being compared to Penny Hardaway, what are your thoughts about that? I don't think anyone knows that much about Shved, because there isn't much footage on him, and he hasn't played much for his team in Russia. He could possibly be the biggest sleeper in the draft along with Jerome Randle. He is the second best international prospect
I think the Lakers are going to find themselves a sleeper from Europe, Shved fits the bill for point guards that Phil likes, because he is 6'7
i think Penny Hardaway is a WAY generous comparison. Penny is the Griffey Jr of basketball. hes an icon. I think hes much more like Brent Barry. Hes not nearly as atheltic as Penny was
Exactly how can you say that a guy isn't a great athlete then compare him to a guy who won a dunk contest over guys like Michael Jordan by dunking from the free-throw line??
Lemay just curious have you seen the kid play?
not live. i have seen alot of highlight and a 4 or 5 minute spurt of one of his games though. i just dont see the Penny comparison other than the fact that hes 6'7 until he does a backwards tomahwak and no look over the shoulder passes...i dont think u can possibly compare him to penny. have u??
I've seen him in a all guy three way
Lemay no I have not, that's why I am trying to figure out if the Penny comparison is legit. Where did you find the 4-5 minute spurts?
I dont think he's oging to be near anything penny
Like everyone else, i see him as brent barry
Why do you see him as a Brent Barry type player? Is it because he is white? Have you even seen him play?
I just don't get the Brent Barry comparison, I know you guys have not even seen him play.
He's not the second best international prospect. That's Bejica (spelling), 6-10 forward.
I have seen Shved play a couple times. He isin't Penny Hardaway by any means. He's tall, good passer but doesn't have the overall game Hardaway had. In the NBA, he could be a solid starter but not nothing special. Plus- He cannot defend very well.
White and european is different. so no i dont compare to him because hes white. i compare him to brent barry because hes a good 3 point shooter and not a super quick pg like some of the smaller guards.Hes built and moves like barry and i think he will play more of a 2 than a 1 in the long run as barry did. and you never saw brent barry dunking on people in traffic as Penny use to do. Similar to Aaron McKie in some ways also?? just not as strong. I know someone who played overseas and saw a few games on tape. On of the games they played Shved. Shved played about 8- 10 mins at most? idk why overseas team bench their better players so often. i didnt watch the last 5 mins but im guessing shved stayed in so i saw about 5 mins of him. not alot but enough to kinda see what hes like.
just cuirous...how can you call Shved a steal if you have never seen him play?? Russians usually really struggle to adjust to the NBA. Other than Kerrilenko most Russians dont do very well. I dont know how he will do im just wondering
He's a good player but he's not a point guard. He's a shooting guard. He's also not 6-7. He's 6-5.
No, i never said that because he's white
The thing is, penny hardaway at his prime was one of the best players in the nba
Athletic,Great Defender,Great Passer,Great Scorer
I really dont think alexey shved can be like that from what ive seen
From what ive seen, he's a tall point guard
with great courtvision, good range.
Again Dnyce in the heart of it...We're getting a league together Dnyce we need to run the Lakers...you and LLperez can fight for the job...
