How would you rank the '13 PGs and SGs
Lots of PGs available, but it'd be a stretch to say any of them really stand out at this point.
Kabongo, Canaan, B.Young, L.Brown, McCollum, Harrow, Burke, P.Pressey, Carter-Williams, E.Johnson, McCallum etc...
Same goes for the SGs (not counting Shabazz of course)
Ledo, McLemore, Caldwell-Pope, Goodwin, Hardaway Jr, Blackshear, Abrines, Purvis, Bullock, Crabbe, Wilcox etc...
How would your top 5s look?
1- lorenzo brown
2- cj mccollum
3- semaj christon
4- trey burke
5/6- ryan harrow
6/5- myck kabongo
3/2- jamaal franklin
5- kentavious caldwell pope
6- PJ hairston
1. Trey Burke
2. Myck Kabongo
3. Lorenzo Brown
4. Ryan Harrow
5. Ray McCallum
I consider C.J. McCollum a combo, more of a SG imo. If I had to put him somewhere on my list I'd put him slightly behind Brown.
1. Archie Goodwin
2. Ben McLemore
3. Alex Abrines
4. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
5. Jamaal Franklin
I was tempted to put Purvis (I'd put him at 3 in front of Abrines, but I'd love to see him try his hand at the point first) and Ledo (I'd put him at 5) in there but I think they'll take an extra year of college.
Just an opinion guys what do you think about marcus smart at PG i think this kid has a lot of talent, and quinn cook from duke could be a breakout year ! Thanks
I think Marcus has the intelligence and knowledge of the game to be a point in the future, but his actual skills in terms of ball-handling and shooting are just mediocre at best. He's good at using his body to shield the ball from the defender and using his strength to get to spots on the floor, but I question his ability to break down a quicker defender.
I wasn't that high on Quinn Cook as a prospect. Coming out of HS he had: good quickness, but didn't have the body strength to finish; could make plays, but showed questionable decision making, forcing a lot of plays; wasn't a good shooter and showed bad shot selection. I thought he received more recognition than he deserved, being selected to numerous post-season events and whatnot. Having said that, he surprised me a bit with his play towards the end of last season. I thought he showed more progress as a PG throughout the course of the year than Austin Rivers. To me he looks like a 4 yr guy, maybe 3, possible back up point in the future if he can iron out his shot and decision making.
