Andrew Harrison "spot on"
Coming into Kentucky, I like everyone else were very high on him to possibly become a top 5 player in this year's draft and the #1 PG in the class. As of now it is understood who the better Harrison twin is although they've both disappointed us *cough cough* (Aaron) . I couldn't tell you who I compared him Andrew to at the time coming in, but most sought after the top tier PGs such as Deron Williams & Tyreke Evans. Now that he has a full season under his belt and given me time to critique him, I see him more closer to Ron Harper than any other PG that he has been compared to in the past. I'm not referring to the early stages of Harper but the Bulls/Lakers Harper.
Andrew is finally putting everything togetheir and getting adjusted to the college game. he's playing fast and making confident decisions. he has all the talent, its jus a matter of confidence and playing at his own pace.
i hope he stays another year in Kentucky to continue improving and raising his draft stock. he has lottery talent, theres no denying that.
I like his halfcourt play but at times during the break when he needs to push the ball full-tilt he doesn't. Also when he needs to take his shot he pump fakes every single time. The pump fakes kill me the most because it's a wasted move for him.
yeah he still has his struggles in some areas he needs work in, part of the reason i feel he needs another year in kentucky.
You don't return to Kentucky...I mean Calipari won't force you out but he isn't going to give you any special treatment over the next incoming group. If Harrison doesn't improve a lot and gets moved to second string he will go undrafted in 2015.
He is going to do better with better floor space in the NBA
If you remember Derrick Rose, Tyreke, Teague, and Brandon Knight weren't able to be free in his system beginning of their seasons either. Obviously, D. Rose and Tyreke eventually took over, but they didn't have what UK has now...which is talent everywhere. John Wall is the only player at that PG position that I could think of that truly had Cal's full confidence from jump. I still feel Andrew is a 2G forced as a PG. Another year in college will do wonders for him though. Hopefully he doesn't rush it and end up like Teague.
Andrew shows me nothing from a 2-Guard standpoint, he's just a big frame. I think Aaron is more versatile even in the spot minutes he plays at the 1 when subbing in for his brother.
I haven't heard any reviews yet on the Ron Harper comparison I threw out, can you let me know what you think?
