I really want to see some of

I really want to see some of Goberts drills. His length and height is incredible but his lack of strength might hurt his agility, mobility and coordination a lot.

Maybe the biggest questionmark so far after he came up with eye popping height and standing reach measurements.

Zeller is killing it, 37.5''

Zeller is killing it, 37.5'' max vert - T-Rex or not, his max reach is 11'11.5''

10.82 lane agility, looks really well in 3/4 sprint, I think he's surprising a lot of guys.

Plumlee and Zeller were

Plumlee and Zeller were supposed to go more quiet as far as the measurements were concerned, but they are killing it! Exciting combine with all these big guys..

Chad Ford tweeted

Chad Ford tweeted this:

Oladipo 3.25 sec & McLemore 3.27 similar sprint scores. Oladipo 10.69 much better than McLemore 11.87 on agility drill #NBACombine

Now that's really impressive forma guy with 214 pounds like Victor and dissappointing for McLemore who has basically the same size and is considered top 3 or even #1

Google:Cody Zeller and James

Google:Cody Zeller and James Mcadoo on right path.Thats a sporting news article that came out july3rd 2012 saying Zeller had a 39 inch vertical.So I dont think his numbers today are much a surprise to the scouts...

Crazy

Oladipo: 33" standing, 42" max

McLemore: 32.5" standing, 42" max

Crazy how close they were. Still like Ben more, has a beautiful shot and think he has a lot more potential offensively, while his defensive potential is strong as well. Heard good things about his work ethic. Knew that they were both elite athletes, just surprised they jumped that high, pretty cool.

One last thing: Really did not like the way Rudy Gobert moves. REALLY awkward. His measurements are crazy, still would be VERY weary of shooting him up your draft boards or taking him in the top 10.

Pretty crazy that two

Pretty crazy that two shooting guards have an 11'10.5'' max reach in the same draft.

I agree on Gobert, he's okay going in a straight line, but any lateral movent just doesn't look fluid.

Not even crazy about him in a straight line, to be honest, lol

Just looked awkward to me. I saw someone retweet Julius Hodge yesterday about how Sean May killed him in France this past year. Guess Gobert had one good play on him or something, just does not surprise me that a big body like May could cause him trouble. His length is incredible, he will block some shots, just do not think he looks like a post anchor or anything and will get beat by quite a few 4/5 men physically and off the dribble.

For the person saying the difference between Gobert and Nerlens, Nerlens is in a different world laterally and athletically. Plus, that shot over his head may be hard to block, just think he is not much of a threat from outside. He has played against grown @ss men, so he may be a bit ahead of some of these guys, and weighing in at 237 was not bad. Just really think that despite his measurables, those other factors scare me, think injury could definitely become a factor down the line.

237 lbs. for someone who is

237 lbs. for someone who is 7' 0.5" is not particularly good for a professional athlete, and I cannot grade on the curve of it being this particular draft class because they will not just be playing against guys from this draft class. Tyler Zeller and Meyers Leonard are not exactly a prototypically strong centers in appearance (or as we saw from them as rookies show strength in their performance), and they measured out at 6' 11.25" (in socks) 247 lbs and 6' 11.75" and 250 lbs respectively last year. Vander Joaquim, who I always thought of as being slender measured out at 6' 9" and 252 lbs. at Portsmouth a month ago. These are really small guys. When we look at Gobert (7' 0.5" 237 lbs), Zeller (6' 10.75" 230 lbs.), Plumlee (6' 11.25" 238 lbs.), Dieng (6' 9.75" 230 lbs), Noel (6' 10" 206 lbs), Olynyk (6' 10.75" 234 lbs), Muscala (6' 10.25" 230 lbs.), Withey (6' 10.75" 222 lbs.), Dedmon (6' 10" 239 lbs.) the big question is do we really do centers at this combine other than Adams, who is a project, Iverson, and maybe Len (though we don't know his weight)? This is a far cry from Andre Drummond coming in at 280 lbs after being on a diet. It is a troubling group when you see what teams need in a frontcourt to compete with the superstars at other positions that don't come along all the time. This is not a group that can help in that area. I want to like Cody Zeller, but a team can have Anthony Davis, John Henson, Taj Gibson, and others with that type build guard him. A team can call him a center, but that doesn't make him one. I want to think Olynyk has a similiar makeup to Nik Vucevic, but that is a big 20 lbs difference in their predraft weight, especially when considering the two were born 5 months apart. It is the weight in the legs that really gives him the base needed to play the center spot, and it did not appear Olynyk had it and the measured weight would appear to confirm that sense.

I already posted my bit about Gobert and the bigger French players, so it would just be beyond lazy analysis to repeat it.

Playing great at the combine

Playing great at the combine helped Miles Plumlee go from Undrafted to 1st rounder..Guys like Dedmon,Muscala and Colt Iverson might not go in the 1st round,but they've had a good showing at the combine..

******I remember Durant and Steph Curry testing poor at the combine..But they've been 2 of the biggest stars during the playoffs...So they've proved combine numbers are irrelevant.....

*****Cody Zeller-I Read that his Standing Reach is the best ever recorded for a player 6'9 and over..

Victor Oladipo-Numbers are AMAZING...A 43 Max Vert. and 33 Standing reach...I've read that teams aren't as high on him as previous thought..They say teams dont like his game,they say he's just an athlete....He might slide out of the lottery now...

Poppa Hardaway must've had his boy rehearsing for this event,becuz Timmy Jr. has been killing it......

Zeller's testing out very

Zeller's testing out very well, but what has that athleticism translated to and what will it translate to? He got stuffed around the paint and will still have an issue with length.
Where his stock can get a boost is if he shows that he's more skilled than what he showed in college and can play in space.

Yeah, there are so many

Yeah, there are so many questions around him, but given his athletic ability and size I think he moves up into the late 1st round. Look what the combine did for Miles Plumlee and Mitchell is a much higher upsdie player. I think he had good chance of slipping, but his athletic ability might have given him a temporary foothold

Archie Goodwin 30'' standing

Archie Goodwin

30'' standing vert
36'' max vert
10.75 lane agility

Pretty middle of the pack for SG's all the way around. He was tied for 6th or 7th in most categories, but still a good all around athlete.

Oladipo said he got 15 reps on the bench.

I can't wait for the PGs to do drills. I'm really pulling for Siva and I believe he may post the best vert if not Jackson or Pressey.

Ben McLemore

McLemore's vert looks good, surprised that Olapido is scoring as well as he is. It'll be interesting to compare their lane agility drills and bench press since they're so close in everything else.

And Jesus, I thought MCW would test well on that, but good lord, 41" on top of being 6'6" at the PG position...

Larkin's 44 inch vert doesn't

Larkin's 44 inch vert doesn't seem to translate to the game. Kind of like Nick Young. He tested in the 40's but Larkin can bang it on the break easily. ANY ONE HAS PIERRE VERT?

6'9 CJ Leslie with top lane agility 10.19 sec

This combined with his vert numbers etc. Why wasn't he a better defender in college? Not saying he wasn't a decent one (block shots and tipped passes) but he should have been able to SHUT DOWN opposing players with the wingspan, agility, and explosiveness. Bad footwork?

Where to begin?

Where to begin? Bad footwork , undisciplined , not strong enough to bang , and overall does not have a great basketball IQ. Gets by on natural gifts and didn't develop much after his 2nd season at NCSU. It's kinda like why wasn't Amare a better defender when he was younger with as live of legs and physique? He relied on instincts and never really worked at the mental and technique side of defense.

These tests are the differnce

These tests are the differnce makers when having to choose between similiar players. These tests otherwise are like a waste of time. Based on these test last year sullys stock dropped. What a big mistake this was for many teams. When u know how to play, you know.

You really have to give

You really have to give Zeller some credit! He might be a better athlete many people think he is.

Does anyone know the agility times of Schröder??? He came out as the lightest player so far and hopefully he can strike in the agility drills.
