If he develops properly, tony wroten has the chance to be something special!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
One thing that can't be denied is the fact that tony wroten is a talented and gifted point guard prospect who has a ton of upside/potential. When he was coming out of college I actually believe that if tony wroten was a better shooter and decision maker who could limit his turnovers. That he would have easily been a top 5 pick in the 2012 NBA DRAFT. He just brings so much to the table when it comes to the type of player that he can become.
1. He's a great athlete who posesses great size and length at the point guard position ( he's 6'6" and has a 6'9" wingspan)
2. He has the physical tools and the needed defensive instincts that will allow him to develop potentially into a great defender. He also has the size and physical tools that will allow him to guard point guards, shooting guards, and small forwards
3. He's a terrific ball handler, passer, and dynamic scoring threat. That can also finish around the rim at a very high level
4. And he posesses the versitility within his overall skill set that allows him to impact the game in a variety of ways( He has the abilty to fill the stat sheet with steals, blocks, rebounds, assists, while being able to score at a high level when needed)
He's just a talented prospect who only needs to improve his ability to limiit turnovers, improve his ability to be a better shooter and improve his ability to be a better decision maker. inorder for him to reach his full potential as a basketball player.
It will be very fun to watch his growth into a great basketball player. Because he has the talent to be special and because he plays for a team ( memphis ) who needs to find a way to utilize him better for the purpose of competing at a higher level within the western conference.
One more thing: his passing ability is better than 90% of the players in the NBA. His passing instincts are very comparable to the great passing skills of Ricky Rubio
1. that means nothing
2. defense is about desire, not physical skills
3. his basketball IQ is super low and he turns it over too much
4. which means he has no role on his team, just a jack of all trades
your delusional if you think he'll be any good and even more so if you think he's a PG. His basketball IQ is too low to play in the NBA and he's such a tweener I don't even thin he knows what position he is.
Damn, you must drink alot of hatorade. I actually got a chance to watch tony play alot when he played for the washington huskies. I taped about 20 of his games. So I got a chance to analyze alot of his strengths and weaknesses. And I actually believe that he can be a flat out bust if he doesn't develop properly. But I also believe that when he's playing at his best. That he can be a very fun, exciting, and entertaining player to watch play basketball. He's extremely talented and able to do alot of things that alot of basketball players can't do. His only 3 major weaknesses are his :
1. shooting consistency
2. bad decision making habits
3. ability to be turnover prone
And the truth is that if he can develop properly and turn his weaknesses into strengths. Then their is no doubt in my mine that he can be a big time point guard prospect in the NBA. Becauses he does posess a dynamic overall skill set that will give him the chance to very successful.
1. I don't see how being 3 inches taller than the average PG and being just as athletic isn't a good thing
2. Physical tools help greatly on defense. Who says he won't have the desire to defend?
3. He has a good basketball IQ, and the turnovers are to be expected at this point. Give him some time to actually play, he's been riding the bench the whole year.
4. Makes absolutely no sense. Because he's good at just about everything, he has no role? I don't see how him being able to fill a stat sheet up in different ways is a bad thing at all. He's just a PG who can do some things that a lot of PGs can't do
I think tony will be "any good"
I agree with you princejames 100%. I see the signs of him being a very good PG in the future. You have to remember he's only 19 years old, I've watched him closely and really believe he will be great by his mid 20's if he continues to learn.
I think that he will end up like a Rodney Stuckey type of combo guard maybe better passer and worst scorer
