Anthony Bennett and...
Jordan Adams: 6'6 Sg-Sf .... He is averaging 18p- 3.4r-1a per 25 mins for UCLA and I hear people calling him their best player so far, he certainly was vs. SDSU...
What do you think about him?... maybe not this year but the next, how far can his stock rise?
Stats per 40 mins: 27p-5.5r-2a, crazy good for a Fr
He's an aggressive shooter with an old man's game. He still looks out of shape, especially for a wing, but he's got a bunch of tricks that he uses to make up for his lack of speed and athleticism.
He needs to work on shot selection and continue to trim the fat. He's in better shape than he was in HS, which IMO was one of the main reasons why he wasn't rated higher, but he's still fat for a wing.
That's funny you say old man's game cus i was gonna say he looks like a senior out there.
Looking at the glass half full, with his shot selection he has shown the capability to get tough buckets off the dribble or with the D on him and doing it at a 49fg% rate... he can improve selection though.
i think if he stays another year he could be a top 10 draft pick in a loaded 2014 draft class. yes he could be in better shape, but the kid just flat out knows how to score. of all ucla freshman recruits he was the least highly regarded, and he is playing the best so far. shabazz is still finding his groove i think, but kyle anderson is playing horrible, and tony parker has been non-existant as far as minutes, which is puzzling to me considering josh smith could not play many minutes before he left and was not that good, and the wear twins are skilled, but they are soft. i mean kyle anderson should not be leading the team in rebounding.
does anyone know jordan adams wingspan?
adams game reminds me of jr rider a little.
I'm a UNLV, and I need an objective assessment. Do you guys think he'll stay for his sophomore season? If not, then where does he go in the draft?
If he maintains his production and stays relatively healthy, I think he's a goner and could be taken in the mid teens to late lotto IMO. I think he's been THE best freshmen in the early part of the season.
His game is unselfish, and a loyal team player, but I hope he does not stay under that program very long. I would advise him to accept any nba draft team, even if he is benched at first. Any team can benefit from his scoring ability when they get in tight squeezes or if someone retires. They can get him very young, and mold and shape him to an even more explosive player. the kid got Game!!
I'm so tired of this society talking about a so called "LOOK" It didn't look like "Oprah" would have been wealthy, but she made it. "Jordan Adams" is a flat out talented scorer. Don't look at this kid's size, look at the points he puts on the board, or the ball going through the net so accurately like a 'Pro" already. This kid should be a #1 draft pick summer 2013 unless he chooses to stay in school. Fact is, as of now, he is a top notch freshman, playing like an experienced senior or better...Everyone doesn't have to be 6'10 and weigh 180 to be a great wing or forward. Congrats "Adams" Keep your head up young man!!! UCLA would be worse off without him...No one else has made a consistent, awesome contibution but him. He gets my vote, because of course everyone can improve, even some pro's.
"Adams" was hand picked to spend his last two years of highschool at "Oak Hill" Academy where Josh smith, Carmelo, Rondo, Stackhouse, and more went. That alone tells me he has game. He broke records there offensively, and have already broken some at UCLA even with Howland not letting him fully lose on the court. Read his profile, and stat's it will blow your mind... This kid is a "Sniper" on the court, and his talent is raw right now. He is gonna continue to be a scoring "Beast" Hey, "Adams" keep letting them hype up players who so called got the "athletic look" or who may be 4 inches taller while you keep shaking them and putting numbers up!!
1 of my friends compares him to Paul Pierce...Pierce isnt very athletic,has an unothodox style,but know how to put points on the board....And has become 1 of the most clutched players this decade.....I think Adams might slip into the late lottery to 25 range next summer.....
"Jordan Adams" is a master baller. He scores all kind of ways. He lead UCLA with 24 points again last night against Long Beach..Yeah, Yeah!! I told you he will "Produce" I have been following this kid even when he was at "Oak Hill" Academy.. I agree he does kinda remind you of Paul Pierce or Harden. His hooping is versatile like theirs. Plus I looked at "Adams" again last night and he didn't look chubby or fat. He is like 6'5 220 or 225, but not so far gone that he can't move fast or score. Again, I hope a nba team drafts him, and gets his body in pro condition because the talent is already raw, and can't be denied for his age. In the future he is gonna be like his alumni from "Oak HIll" the great Kevin Durant. The sky is the limit for this young baller..I respect him for coming all the way to California from Atlanta to make a name for himself!!
