Justin Anderson of Virginia
What is your potential?
I think this is still a little green, but it is showing flashes, and I think he will be a top 10 draft pick in 2014
is a tremendous shot blocker for his height, and a good passer, I think if he can put everything in place has the potential to be someone important in the NBA.
lol "I think this is a little green" franfran you never seem to let me down with a laugh
He dunked on my teammate last year :( it was all over hoopmixtape and BALLISLIFE.com. He has tremendous athletic ability but his jump shot is a little off. He can easily be a top 10 pick in next year's draft.
Again, as our resident UVA expert, there's pretty much no way Justin will be a top 10 pick next year, although he is certainly a future draft pick and possibly even a 1st rounder. His ball handling is still extremely raw, and his jumpshot is still a work in progress, although it has gotten much better throughout the course of the season. He has the physical tools to be a potential lottery pick, but I feel like it's unreasonable to call him a top 10 pick. His skills and his mindset suggests that he will be a very good energy guy coming off the bench in the league, but not really a high quality starter like you'd like to see out of a top selection.
He used to be near the top of his class as a prospect when he was younger, but that was because he was so much more physically mature than his peers. The kids in his class caught up to him physically, but surpassed him in terms of skill. Big wing, great frame with huge shoulders and long arms, filled out, explosive leaper, but not that quick.
He improved his jumper his senior yr, especially from 3, but it hasn't translated to college. He really needs to improve his ball skills, otherwise I don't see him being drafted for any reason other than for his strength, athleticism and defense.
Next year will be one of the deepest drafts in recent memory so he isn't going top 10 no matter what. But If he were to improve upon his skills he could get into the first round.He has the body and mental toughness and people say he has high character. But his skills have to catch up to his physical gifts.
He always reminded me of Corey Maggette except now that he's in college I understood that he doesn't have anywhere near his potential.
Best Case Scenario: Alan Anderson
Worst Case Scenario: Joey Graham
Saying he will be a top 10 pick what the hell are you watching? What real skill does he have offensively? Hate to say it but a team would have to be moronic to take him top 10 in a draft as good as next years. He's only athletic. How many guys have we seen in basketball that are athletic and great shot blockers but never made the nBA? Too many to count
Passing, finishing ability. He's still very raw in some facets on offense but you don't need to put him on blast like that.
I mean honestly homie is right with what he's saying. Doesn't make sense for someone to say he'll be a top 10 pick next year in a loaded draft when he hasn't made an impact of even a late first round pick.
Yes he had an excellent game against St John's but this thread was jumping the gun.
For you to mention a top 10 pick and this guys name is ridiculous. When he actually makes some strides and shows an ability to have a real skill then I will pay attention. But for you to say his passing and finishing ability make him an top 10 selection for next years LOADED draft is pure dumb. I mean hell he wouldn't even be a top 10 selection in this years confusing draft.
Look at my first post before you call me dumb, man. I said that there's no way he's a top 10 pick, but after the guy said he has nothing on offense, I just stated he does have good passing and finishing ability, that's all.
24 points on 6-14 from the field, 5-8 from 3, 7-8 from the stripe, 6 boards, 2 dimes, 5 blocks and 3 steals. He showed tonight why he can be a future 1st round pick.
