Official Combine Thread

TV coverage is getting started. I thought a unified thread might be good so there aren't a million posts when someone does something good or bad.

Anyone know who #35 is? He's tall and a good shooter, but I don't recognize him at all.

Jordan Taylor

Anyone remember when this guy was supposed to be a lottery pick coming into this year haha. Now he probably won't even get drafted. Unreal

@JoeWolf I think that is

@JoeWolf

I think that is Tomas Satoransky

@dlipto11

I don't remember him being in the lottery. All I remember him being was in the second round.

They haven't highlighted him, but he's looked good everytime I've seen him on the court.

Really?

Last year as a junior he was averaging like 18 a game shooting 43% from 3 and had like 39 on Indiana and 22 on Butler in the Sweet 16 people were talking about him moving up a lot in mocks. But all I know is that he had a REALLY dissapointing season this year.

LOL Wroten can't shoot a

LOL Wroten can't shoot a lick

Teague has a weird shot and kind of kicks his legs out, kind of like he's stopping himself from jumping higher, and has a slow release. Not a fan of his game, but he has a great frame for a PG.

Marshall's shot didn't look good at all in the spot-up 3 drill. Has a low release that comes from his chin, and doesn't get much lift on his shot.

Really worried about Lillard's long, slow release and how he'll be able to get them off against contest at the next level. It starts all the way down from his waist.

I' about 15 minutes behind on

I'm about 15 minutes behind on my TV, but up to where I am Tony Wroten has looked terrible. Nearly air-balled a wide-open mid-range jumper in the first drill, followed by a missed layup in the next drill, then he struggled in the two shootig drills. Then he looses the dribble and throws up a wild shot in the defense drill. I was hopin for a lot more than this for Wroten.

Gambling

I think he's gambling/scared right now. He might know that guys like Terrence Ross, Austin Rivers, and Dion Waiters are better than he is and he doesn't want to be compared with them. Right now he's ranked ahead of those guys on most big boards and doesn't want to slip down further so he's keeping his potential and college body of work as his selling point. I agree with JoeWolf though, these drills should be perfect for Lamb. For the record I think all players should have to do these drills as a draft requirement but I understand why some don't.

Bradley Beal looks like a man. I can't believe he is still only 18 years old. He looked like he was already in his early 20's during that interview with Andy Katz.

I like Doron Lamb better than Jenkins. Better defensively, superior mid range game, better athleticism, better ball handling ability. Jenkins may be the more dynamic college scorer, but I think Lamb's game tranlates well to the NBA. He seems like an excellent NBA role player. Players who are elite spot-up shooters who can defend and competently fill other offenseive needs can find homes in the NBA.

So far I have been impressed

So far I have been impressed by Doron Lamb, who looks quite quick. Darius Johnson-Odom, on the other hand, looks a little bit slow. Just doesn't look as athletic as the other guys in there. Couldn't get to the rim well in the 1 on 1 drills. Don't want to read to much into the combine, though, as it really doesn't give a great read of the prospects just watching it. I'd guess the interviews are at least as important as the drills.

^DJO seems like a good guy, and he is a good athlete, but he looked bad in the drill segment. You could tell he was giving his all, but he wasn't very effective nor did he hit a lot of his shots.

I think Crowder will be just

I think Crowder will be just fine at the 3 at the next level. He certainly will rebound nicely out of that position. And he is good strong defender. Yeah, he will be short but he produces. Teams are idiots if they sleep on him.

Yeah, I agree that DJO seems pretty cool. I always root for Marquette players to make it in the NBA, as they all seem to play hard and just know how to play basketball.

Moe Harkless is looking good. Shooting well in the pull-up drills and in the spot up shooting drill. If he can develop a consistent outside shot, he could really help himself.

I love Marquette players,

I love Marquette players, they play with toughness

Quincy Miller has a bit of a broke jumper, and Jay Williams said he finds him to be more of a power forward, which I dont agree with but I am a firm believer that he should have returned to school

^^I don't think Miller has the lateral quickness to guard 3's. He's going to be a turnstile on the perimeter.

I love Jeff Taylor's athletic

I love Jeff Taylor's athletic ability. You can tell by the way he moves he could explode at any time. He's not the most refinded guy offensively, but I think he makes a lot of sense to OKC in the late 1st round since they may not be able to bring back Thabo.

Taylor could be a really great NBA defender, and he's not nearly as one dimensional as Thabo.

^Smart move by him, he's a guy who looks great running drills. He's trying to raise his stock right now, and he'd be doing himself a disservice by not showing off his skills against no defense.

I'm also glad to see Royce

I'm also glad to see Royce White working out with the PF's, I never bought him as an NBA SF and I think his stock would have suffered if he was trying to market himself as a 3.

At least Fran Fraschilla has some sense. There's no way PJIII wil be a 3 in the NBA. His handle and center of gravity are way too high on the perimeter.

I like Jones as an NBA player, he's stood out more than Perry Jones and just about every other PF prospect thus far in this section of the combine.
