D Hamp...Hubie Brown

Danny Green is OK. He may or maynot be drafted. If I had to guess, the prestige of North Carolina should help him get drafted in somewhere between the mid-late second round. He changed his game and became more of a shooter later in the college career. I like his shooting ability, but I'm worried he may not be able to get his shot off in the NBA. To me, he isn't a great dedender, either. But, we'll see. If he's drafted in a good enviorment such as former UCLA Bruin Aaron Affalo was with the Detriot Pistons, five years from now, he could be a good player. I believe he meausured out at 6'7 so that helps.

My problem: Where's the killer instint? I've never seen him take over a game. If I missed it, then it wasn't a meaningful game. We've seen Danny Green in this mold before at North Carolina. Remember Jawad Williams or Jason Capel. Those are the two players he reminds me of the best. He's not great at one thing, but he's pretty darn decent at many things. But when will he ever take over or strike fear in the oppositon.

D Hamp....the greatest mind in basketball. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.

possibly not drafted? he is

possibly not drafted? he is definitely being drafted. Not a great defender? he would always be put on the other teams best offenisve player, like vazquez and vasallo. also, 1.3 blocks and 1.8 steals a game is pretty good. doesnt take over games? i kinda agree with that, but unc had 3 other great scorers, so they didnt need him to. but he did have an 18 point game against oklahoma, and 20 point games vs. wake, fsu, and oregon, as well as plenty of 18/19 point games. i think he will develop into a very good defender (6'7" with a 6'10" wingspan) who also will be able to get hot and score in spurts. he will b very valuable to any contending team

You just made my point. The

You just made my point. The fact that three other people on his team could take on the majority of the scoring load is exactly why he may be drafted mid-late second round. In other words, he was the fourth option on the team.

Jawad Williams was soft as tissue paper. Danny Green is pure NY and it shows in his game. He isn't afraid to mix it up with guys he is guarding and doesn't back down from a challenge. He is a great leader and has shown he can play with talented guys. IMHO San Antonio's 37th pick has Green's name all over it if he is still available. I see Green as someone who is an excellent role player off the bench.

Danny Green

I like his game and think he could be a solid backup in the NBA. But my one concern was that he was kinda stiff and mechanical in his movements which is exactly what the scouts observed at the combine. He does not look very gracful on the court and that can allow defenders to lock him up in the league. I would compare him to Ime Udoka.
