Can Russ get drafted in the First
Russ just had one of his best games of his career against Oregon. He has been killing it since the big east tournament has start all the way up to this point he has just been getting better and better. I understand he does bone head things during games but he also bring a lot to the game. He is a one man fast break and press breaker, and he can also shut down guys while playing defense. I feel he could and should be picked at the later part of the first round. picks 23-30.
I mean, if a team wants a 5'11'' 155 lb combo guard then it would only make sense to draft him but I worry about someone of his physical stature guarding NBA-sized guards
He's way too small to hold up in the NBA, and he's not even a point guard. The odds are heavily stacked against him.
He is 6 feet barefoot. I've met him many times and he is up to 170 now. But either way that is still small, but I think he can find a role somehow someway.
I don't think he'll declare this year. Even though his performance has been great, he still needs to develop one more year at the next level. I think he's a second rounder in next years draft or undrafted depending on how much he matures physically. I think he has a good shot at getting drafted next season, but it's too early to tell. But I wouldn't mind him leaving for the NBA so that way Cuse doesn't have to deal with him in the ACC next year haha.
treatment, teams will all want him as Undrafted Free agent and in summer league and he will put up impress Vegas numbers, but will be a D-Leaguer or Euroballer.
He is not 6 feet tall. He can't guard anyone in the NBA... he can't play PG. He isn't a play maker, hes a shot jacker.
Then again, it is hard to differentiate between he and Ben Gordon, but then again Gordon was actually better than him in college, and is a 6th man on the worst team in the NBA.
