Denis Clemente from Kansas State score 44 points at Texas in a OT win. Anyone can get hot on any day so this doesn't qualify him as a NBA player, but what I see is his absolutely lightning fast speed. I don't think there is any player in college basketball that has his speed with the ball from one end of the court to another. I think an NBA team would love this is he was given a shot at the next level. I can't even think of a player with that type of speed.....
TY LAWSON MAYBE?
Clemente is fast, ever since high school (calusa prep) dude has been an explosive scorer who excelled at one man fast break, of course college is harder and he can't score the 40 points per game like he did back in the day but yesterday he was vintage Clemente. I hope he can keep it up because when he let's loose he's fun to watch.
but what I see is his absolutely lightning fast speed. I don't think there is any player in college basketball that has his speed with the ball from one end of the court to another. heheh :)
if carlos arroyo can play in the nba, then so can his puerto rican brethren clemente.
played high school ball in Miami, then played for the canes like most of the best miami players do. He couldn't really get off the Bench at UM, so i didn't get to see much of him, but I did in person see Ty Lawson eat him up just for the record when they were both freshman i believe. Not sure if he was faster, they didnt race but he was certainly better then. That said, i really wish he didnt transfer, that wide open system at K State is perfect for his game. i would love to see him get a shot at the NBA, represent 305 basketball. He definately has pro opportunities in the carribean, so he will be pro, but Denis good luck gettin that American ball paper.
hes every bit as fast as ty lawson.
I am a HUGE kstate fan and I have to say,he does have great speed. Like really great speed. But his jumper was the thing that won them the game against texas. he has an outstanding floater and isnt really that turnover prone. so he should be at least a semi pro
thanks for the post
