I feel he's one of the best guards in the nation. Dude scoring 17, dropping 6 dimes, and picking 2 balls a game. His biggest strength is his length, height, and basketball IQ, he would do well to stay in college all four years but I guarantee you if he chose to leave this year, he's first round. Hoping he'll stay because next year the gators will have Kenny Boyton, and him teaming up with Calathes will lead to another year of gator domination (I don't like the gators but they seem to win everything these days).
I think how long Calathes stays will determine on how long Chandler Parsons stays, his close friend and running mate from high school. Calathes does have the chance to go first round, but as struggled to keep Florida in the top 25. Of course it is a super drought year for the SEC.
Chandler Parsons is 4 year players unless he improves considerably, he's a spot of shooter at this stage in his career. So if that's the case gators are in good situation, imagine how good Calathes is going to be 2 years from now, scary.
Nick Calathes is a real solid player. To me he reminds me of a shorter Brent Barry, without the hops. Calathes can play both guard positions exceptionally well. All he needs to do is just add on a lot of weight to his skinny frame, and another year of college will help him accomplish that. Calathes coming back will boost the Gators chances of making a trip to the 2010 Final Four, with Kenny Boynton arriving to Gainsville, as well as former Hoya, Vernon Maxwell, Eric Murphy, and DesShawn Painter, they really have a chance because their team is well talented and deep.
He's the perfect guard in a since when you think of size, play making,and skill. I like his game if he sticks around another year that wouldn't hurt. Playing for one of the best college coaches and being the cornerstone of his championchip programs reimmurgence should probably tempt him to stay one more year hopefully. Him and K,Boyton in the same backcourt thats the 2009 version of Fire&Ice could be one of the better backcourt tandems we've seen lately on the college level.But if he does go pro he would be a perfect fit for teams who have good combo guards who can't guard the larger 2 guards in the league. Would be good for teams like the Suns,Blazers,Grizzlies,and Lakers. Calathes is just the style of guard that a coach like Phil Jackson would love, very versitile guy who can play multiple backcourt positions and defend his position.I just really like his game and think he can play anywhere NBA,NCAA,or YMCA and be one of the better players on the floor.I expect him to continue to step his game up and be a lottory pick eventually.
He is slow. Not to many guards in the league that are really good and slow
Teammates Malik Hairston and Maarty Luenen unexpectedly heard their names called but Taylor didn’t.

Siirler Hikayeler Fikralar Programlar Guzel Sozler Resimler freetemplates Taylor was arguably Oregon’s best player last season, but his 6-foot-4 frame makes him a undersized at the next level. Nonetheless, his scoring ability, length and athleticism give him a chance to make in in the league.
