Watching the NC State/Maryland game and I am reminded why I like Brown so much. I have seen him only 5/6 times this year and I don't understand why he has dropped so much in the draft. Athletic, great size, good passer, defender, also like his effort on the glass. I would not mind the Bulls taking him as a backup for Rose if he did fall that far. I think he can improve his shot over time and needs to work on decision making a bit but I don't understand the fall, he was top 10 before the year started.
This game has been really disappointing overall though.
He can't shoot at all, when you throw in the fact that his offensive game is still raw after these many years at college, you question his long term potential.
Raw?.... how is leading the ACC in assist?
Dez Wells is raw, not Lorenzo Brown.
Brown is deadly in the break and we could see his game blossom in the NBA if he goes to the right team.
His offensive game is, he should seeing as his team is loaded
He's not very skilled as far as a scorer but he scores because he's the fastest PG in the break in CBB.
His handles and ability to slash on the break are deadly at 6'5.
There is more than athleticism to Browns game.
I don't doubt his talent I just want to see his jumper improve more as he won't get by on slashing and athleticism alone, look at Tony Wroten
Tony Wroten was slashing SG, he didn't have the PG instincts or handles that Brown has.
Wroten bullied his way into the paint at will, trucking defenses... and passed out of double teams.
Both are combo guards, Wrotin is bigger( 6'6 205) so he can easily slide to the 2 guard, not sure if Brown can if he has to
You saying Brown is a combo guard as well? No. He has the size to guard bigger guards because of his size but he is a true point. You don't want him playing off the ball with his shot right now either, could be a slasher though. Leads ACC in assists like dude already said and he is always looking to get others involved. Great first step too, sneaky explosive, always attacking, trying to get to the rim. Can finish big if he gets there, which his speed/athleticism/size/strength allows him to do so often, or he is very willing and smart about dishing it off if help D comes. He reminds me a little of a less intense Gary Payton. That is one that that scares me about him is his drive just as his game seems lackadaisical at times, but tricky because that is his game. Smooth, calm, composed, a lot of hesitations, but then he will hit you with that sneaky explosion. Good defender and anticipates well. I'll take him over a lot of other PG's in this draft.
