george, babbit, hayward
i believe it goes babbit, george, hayward
ive heard babbits a smart, and versitile foward and similar things with george. however after watching them all play hayward is the least nba ready. hell bring fans though. whats your order of these 3?
George, Hayward, Babbitt. George seems to have the most potential but isn't a bad player now. Hayward is a good player but he is hyped from his great run to the ncaa championship game. Babbitt, to me, doesn't have a true position.
George, Babbitt, Hayward. That's my order.
Paul George is going to be a great NBA player. He has nice scoring ability and he can defend. I've always thought he was a pretty good defender, especially on the ball. Also a big threat in transition and a good passer.
Babbitt is good, but when I watch him play I see alot of Adam Morrison in him. He's a better rebounder than that, but he's just as bad a defender and Morrison and he doesn't play as athletic as he tested out.
Hayward is a versatile offensive player, and a pretty good rebounder. Don't think he'll be a very good defender and I don't think he's going to do anything better than Babbitt or George down the line.
I watched George on vidieo today and he was impressive, before that I liked Babbitt best, but now it's a toss up depending on what you need. Babbitt will be a very good 3, he is 6'9" with a 37.5 vert and he is strong 15 reps on the bench and in the top 4 or 5 in the agility run. He can play the 4 if necessary, especially if his team goes small ball. I like his shot, he has great range and has very good handles and can create off the dribble.
George can play the 2 or the 3, he is slight and weak but talented, can score almost any way you want. If you play him as a 2 he will create match up problems for the other team.
Hayward, I'm not that impressed, he looks thin, slender, narrow shoulders, weak, shoots OK but he is not that athletic, I think he will struggle at the next level.
There is no similarity between Luke Babbitt and Adam Morrison.
Only a moron who knows nothing about basketball talent would make such a remark.
Morrison has zero athleticism, zero speed, zero quickness, zero ball handling ability, zero playmaking ability, zero rebounding ability, zero post up ability, zero defensive ability, zero brains and a zero first step.
Babbitt, on the other hand, is strong in all those areas.
Babbitt's defense has been impressing teams in workouts vs. other prospects. Just a sophmore, he has the quickness, length, toughness and commitment to be a good defender in the NBA. The Bucks, in particular, considered his defense noteworthy in their post-workout evaluation...
“I think one of the things about him is he’s a better athlete than much people view him and that’s one of the things that I talked to our staff about as I had gone out and scouted him," McKinney said. "He’s deceptively athletic. His numbers at the combine were off the chart, but he’s a multi-dimensional player that rebounds and plays defense, plays hard, plays with the kind of commitment that we like on both ends of the floor.”
"He could be there at 15, but I know he’s also going into Utah to work out with the Utah Jazz and they have the ninth pick in the draft," McKinney said. "He appeals to a lot of people because of the way he plays."
-- Billy McKinley, Milwaukee Bucks Director of Scouting
Since when does Morrison not have any Ball handling ability, playmaking ability, brains, and first step.
Those are some of the reasons he was one of the top scorers of all time in college basketball.
I think a moron is somebody who clearly has never seen these prospects play, and is judging his opinion based on a bunch of worthless combine numbers and workouts.
I rank them in this order.
But, I think they'll be drafted in this order.
1. George (#8 to Clippers)
2. Babbitt (#9 to Jazz)
3. Hayward (#16 to Timberwolves)
Morrison has no ball handling ability, no playmaking ability, no rebounding ability, no brains, no athleticism and no first step.
That's why he won't make it in the NBA physically or skill-wise.
Has some shooting skill, but is capable of nothing else at either end.
Hayward, Babbit, George
i'm confident Hayward will find his shot again, and I like that he knows how to play the game...he's not going to be a star due to his lack of athleticism, but i think he'll be a really nice player
babbit's pretty close to hayward in my eyes, he's a better athlete but doesn't have the same instincts...
george scares me...i feel like he could easily become a perimeter-oriented Joe Alexander with a 3-point shot...amazing potential, i'm just worried he won't reach it
Only a moron would compare Babbitt to Adam Morrison when there is no similarity between them aside from the fact that they're both white.
The NBA people know it's not a valid comparison, but an incredibly stupid comparison that could only be made by an idiot. Sorry.
NBA people watch the games.
They look for NBA-level skills.
They look for NBA-level physical ability.
They runs tests to reveal true size, strength and athleticism.
The sum total of that is why Babbitt's stock has risen into the lottery, because in all of those areas, he projects to the NBA extremely well.
You guys are idiots and you boy sucks.
ADAM MORRISON SUCKS.
If ever there was a worthless player in the NBA, that dude is it.
Adam Morrison is not a great nba player, but saying he sucks is stupid. His skills just don't translate that well to the pros.
Hes an extremely high iq basketball player (looks like a buffoon off the court) his biggest weakness was he doesn't know how to play off the ball, but hes a fantastic scorer great shooter, high iq, good ball handler, can handle the balls well and pull up for a jump shot, hes just not that fast, and didn't learn how to play off the ball those were the reasons he didn't succeed. And i still think he could be a decent backup in this league.
I mean the dudes a fantastic scorer, extremely crafty, and its not like he was putting up good numbers, on a bad team like Babbit, He averaged over 28 points a game on team that lost 3 games all year.
Babbitt has more pro potential but hes not as good as Morrison in a lit of aspects. Your stupid if you think Morrison wasn't a good player.
Once he learns how to adjust to handling the ball less, and gets more playing time he can be solid player like Jj Reddick.
Not only does Morrison's game not translate to the NBA but I don't think he has worked on his physical condition. He looks the same as he did in college. You would think that when he realized he couldn't create his own shot in the league he would have worked on his strength and conditioning. I think Reddick plays for the perfect team to fit his style and I also think his physical attributes have changed tremendously since his rookie year. He looks stronger and more athletic.
As for Hayward, George, and Babbitt. I think it all depends on where they end up. If Hayward ended up in OK City then I think he would fit in perfectly but if he ends up in Minnesota he's screwed. He could be a point forward but will have trouble defensively guarding just about any position. He can create, rebound, and shoot a bit. Plus he's 6'9 and very young. He won't be the rookie of the year but by his second and third year I can see him being a 12 and 6 guy.
Babbitt and George I reserve judgment on because I haven't seen them enough.
