I smell a Bust...

Why do most fans on this site and Espn insiders say If the Nets win the lottery they trade Harris because you have John Wall??? Espn makes me sick with the hype they put on this kid...John Wall is not better than Harris and will not be for at least 3 to 4 years...D.Harris was the toast of the NBA after the Kidd trade and was injured most of last year...Harris is faster, shots better from 3 and plays better team D than Wall today...going Forward with a Rookie point leading the way isn't always that smart...they'd be best to trade the pick for Vets and possible star to surround Free Agent signings...Wall will be fun in the fast break but that does not mean he's better than D.Harris who dominated point guards 2 years ago and was a lock to be a top 5 point guard period...Wall is a mystery and could flop big time....Why are people so blinded by the Hype...He could not lead a stacked team to the final 4 or elite 8....Wow I smell a bust.....now minus me Wall droids

I'm not a huge Wall fan, I

I'm not a huge Wall fan, I think he will be very good but you are overhyping Harris.

The last 3 years Harris has not had a FG% higher than 43.8 and his 3 PT % has dropped from 32 to 27%. .. He has never averaged 7+ assists a season and doesn't have a great assist to turnover ratio. He's a good player but John Wall will be better.

I smell a hater.Wall is

I smell a hater.Wall is younger more athletic and $$$$$$$$ cheaper. Trade Harris while he's still in demand and build with Wall. They probally wont get the #1 pick anyways.

John Wall may not be better

John Wall may not be better than Devin Harris as of now, but he will surpass him in a couple of years. I see John Wall as a Derrick Rose with Rajon Rondo's Defense. He has a chance to be the most disruptive PG on both offense and defense since Gary Payton.

HATERS!!!!

Why is everybody hatin on John Wall? Yeah he couldn't lead his team past the Elite 8 but he was only a freshman and the rest of his team was filled with freshman. People are also saying that he has no jump shot but he has a better jump shot than Derrick Rose had in college and Derrick Rose improved his jump shot drastically in the NBA and John Wall can do the same thing. He can also improve on defense because with his physical attributes, he has the potential to be a lockdown defender and if he just focuses more on defense and the coaches coach him up, he can become special on the defensive end. Just give him time. Peple are already saying that Derrick Rose is way better than him but he hasn't even played an NBA game yet. Yes he's raw but he has the potential to become one of the best PGs in the NBA for years to come.

I think it's funny how most

I think it's funny how most people ar writing Wall off as a bust because he didn't lead his team to the title but no one is saying the same for Cousins. Wall was part of a predominantly freshmen team that went 35-3 when everyone was gunning for them every night. They were rolling through the tourney until they slipped up against a very good WVU team.

He came up huge at the end of a bunch of games, hitting buzzer beaters and blocking shots.

I am not proclaiming him to be the next Wade but I just don't see how he is going to bust.

That is no excuse for failure

If the point is He was young and couldn't beat his older comp. in college...why does that mean he will lead NBA team to better outcome....WHY is better than Harris today and why will he be this combo of Rose and Rondo??? I see the Rose thing...both Cal guys with crazy athleticism...but why then is every one saying to draft Wall and trade whatever Point guard you have???? Harris will be better than Wall for the Next 3 years...why trade him when the kid will have to learn how to win games before he can be a leader and franchise player...Are you guys overselling him>>>???...I think Wall is Great...But hands down # 1 pick/trade the farm to get him good...No...Rose is 10 times better at this point and couldnt get team pass 1st round opponent...And ROSE IS THE MAN....Why would Wall be a better pick than Turner or Cousins who could be 20/10 guy minus personality issues...I'm not a hater...just thinking out loud....FYI...The Nets will Not win the # 1 pick....Sorry ....Tanking does not get overlooked by the basket ball Gods....That team sold out for the #1 pick and lost it's soul in the process...# 4 pick for You...enjoy D.Favors...he's another bust I'm smelling from a mile away....was not better than Lawal...what am I missing here...Oh yeah stop listening to Chad Ford,,,he thinks Hayward is a lotto pick...WoW.....

Well for one, Wall will be

Well for one, Wall will be playing with older veteran players. He obviously isn't better then Harris, an all-star, today. But he could be better then him by the end of the year.

Man I struck a nerve with this 1

Wall not better than Harris for next 3 years...still has miles to go before you can honestly start him....Why Trade a better player for a guy that couldn't beat WVU...a team with 1 NBA guy Butler and another Bust in Ebanks

NBA guys will not lay down for this Kid

The Hype will have a huge target put on his head and every guard will look to light him up for it...Wall is 75% Hype 25% skill at this point...Would you agree that Flynn was better coming out of college and was ate up by most point guards( including Fisher and Calderon) why would Wall be different...Flynn played more important games against real comp...Wall had all the good recruits from that class and still couldn't win...stop using age as an excuse...Rose was a Freshman and lead a less talented Memphis to Championship game and would have won if they all hadn't started seeing those dollar signs... and CDR dropped in the draft because of it...

Memphis lost because they

Memphis lost because they missed their free throws down the stretch....and a lucky shot by Mario Chalmers. Not because they saw dollar signs. Just thought I'd say that.

Really CDR would tell you other wise

He saw his draft stock rise and fall with that Lose...FYI.. look up their Free throw % in the NBA compared to the NCAA...they were plotting on what car and watches they were going to be getting...Thats what happened to the Kentucky Wild Cats too...

i agree with spencer. Your

i agree with spencer. Your mad at ESPN for overhyping Wall?? Your overhyping Harris and acting like is one of the best PG's in the L. if that were true the Nets wouldnt be as bad as they are. and The worste team isnt guaranteed the lottery. im gunna laugh and feel bad when they get the 5th pick like boston did...even though their trades made up for it

well at one point devin

well at one point devin harris was considered one of the top pgs in the nba until the injuries and i argree with ScareCrow215Legend the way people talk about wall is as if he will be the best pg in the league right sway and i think he is way better then rubio but it was the same situation all the talks of the next nash or pistol pete and this kid isnt even the vest player on his team overseas.. And for anyone righting harris off as a fail dont be shocked once he is fully healed with a good coach is in that top 10 pg discussion.. just like CP3 and D.will people gave D.will the best pg crown when he got hurt and thats false CP3 is the best pg in the league hands down

west virginia

also shot very well that game and no one on kentucky stepped it up. wall would be better than harris by year three. i see him taking over the 5th best pg spot by then if not higher than rondo. Memphis team was much better than kentucky and would of beat them in a game. i think bledsoe is the biggest bust on kent and cdr was light years ahead of him in college. memphis had more veteran leadership

I think everybody has points,

I think everybody has points, but everybody is also being extreme with their points. I think Harris is better than Wall right now, but he's not a top 5 point guard. If I'm New Jersey I draft Wall and trade whichever one gets greater value because Harris is a very solid PG still.

The people who discount him because the Nets were bad are stupid...basketball is a team game. The Nets have 2 players worth anything. That and injuries will kill a season, thats what happened.

The people who think Wall will be a top 3 PG within in the next 2 years, I think are overhyping him a little bit. Yes he is a very talented player, but the NBA has become a PG driven league. I do think ESPN hypes him up too much, but that what they do with everybody.

Lol at the guy who thinks everybody is going to be a bust. Though I do agree that Favors is overhyped as well.

Thanks Biggie and Tupac

Wall is nice and will be a good point guard very soon...To over value him over a proven point guard like Harris who most people agree is better than 80% of other point guards and is still very young himself is foolish...If I was the Nets I would not be thinking this kid could start day 1 and lure free agents and change my franchise over night...I would be keeping them both and taking my chances...to think he's worth trading an All Star Level Point Guard is what will ruin their franchise...The Nets have put them selves in a very envious position,,,don't mess it up with putting potential in front of leadership, team needs, or true value for the pick...If your picking Wall, your picking Wall for the future, Harris as it now...Let them make each other better by competition...

Plain and simple, you run

Plain and simple, you run with both Harris and Wall. Harris can play the 2 on offense. Wall can guard the opposing teams better guard.

Well what if they could get

Well what if they could get something good for Harris? (who hasn't played a full season in what seems like his whole career) If he's as good as your making him out to be trading him for another top pick or proven player would be simple. If the Nets do get Wall he would be a better fit then Harris because he passes more, and looks to get his team mates involved in the offense. But if a sign and trade for Amare showed up would you turn that down?

Why would the Suns take another PG

The Nash isn't going any where>>>You get Harris and move on...did you hear the offers they were getting for him...Sasha and Luke for Harris...sh765T LIKE THAT...If you trade him you get scraps...the NBA only makes one sided trades and salary dumps....
