Agreed

I think he will go top 10. I think he will naturally be better as a pg, so I would'nt consider him to be DWade. And nobody in this draft should be considered the next DWade in my opinion.

holiday

Holiday did flat out bad for what people thought of him. Why would he be better when the level increases. If he could not produce in college there is no way he will be a star. I see him to be kind of like Courtney Lee except doesn't shoot as many three's or he could be a bust like chris douglas roberts

How is Chris Douglas-Roberts

How is Chris Douglas-Roberts a bust? He fell to the 2nd round for a reason unknown to everyone and when he got playing time, he did very well for himself.

He plays nothing like Lee or Roberts. He was a pg who was put at sg. UCLA plays a half court offense that does'nt always show off what guys can do at thenext level. Mbah a Moute put up similar numbers in the NBA as he did at any point in college. Westbrook put up better numbers in the NBA as well.

Plain and simple, Holiday is still only 18 and has size and defense. I saw numerous games where he took the ball length the court and finished in traffic or crossed a guy over and hit a pull up in his face. The tools are all there.

He seems average at

He seems average at everything, even at the college level. He is a pretty decent defender, but he isnt anything special or above average on offense

yeah.. Holiday and Derozan

yeah.. Holiday and Derozan and Jennings seem to be the biggest question marks. Only one of them is going to be great. My guess is that Jennings is going to be the best. But thus far, I think he is looking like he will be just like Iverson and end up being and amazing player whom know one wants to play with.

Athleticism

Holiday may have some skills and defensive awareness, but hasnt elite athleticism in order to be selected in the lottery.
