What do you think bout him. He is one of the top 5 pg in college basketball. Do he have a chance to the nba and if so what are some teams he will do good on
hes really little but he will could maybe play a year or 2 in the nba
I think he can make it as a good career back up with an outside chance of eventually becoming a starter. He and Burke are IMO the best PGs in the country at running an offense, Flip being a tad bit quicker with better creativity when it comes to passing the ball. Pressey's probably the best passer in college basketball. He's tiny with a short wingspan, but he's jet quick with a really good floater game. If Bassy Telfair can make it this long as a back up, then so can Flip since he's the smarter player and better passer at the same stage.
The problem with the NBA the last 20 years is teams drafting players based on measurements. Now I understand you can't teach size. So teams will always draft athletic bigs. But watching PP play BASKETBALL, he's a pro. His vision is off the charts. Quickness and speed, check. Physically he's gonna have to get his weight up. Shooting can always be worked on. But this kid is a pro. He doesn't have to be 6'5 to make his impact at the point. The league needs more specialist. Shooting, passing, rebounding, defense. Everything can't be about athletic ability and scoring. I'd say one more year, maybe get his team to the Final Four next year, then come out. Definitely a first round pick.
I don't think he'll be a first rounder, but I think he'll play in the NBA for a while. He is great on the break and finding the open man, and despite being small, he's a terriffic athlete who often throws down two handed dunks at 5'8''. He's not efficient scoring the ball, but his value is making other players better. I don't know if he'll ever be a starter in the NBA, I would say no, but in the NBA he could be a lot like a lesser version Brevin Knight.
Trey Burke.. dont know why , but when I watch him play he reminds me alot of Ty Lawson...
If Ish Smith can have a nice career in the NBA, then Pressey can do it, too. Pressey will need to adapt to a much more controlled style, but he'll make some cash in the league.
Flip is way better than Ish was. Ish pretty much made the league based on his speed alone. His point skills were just solid and he couldn't shoot at all. Pressey's point skills are exceptional.
I'm not sure what you mean by him adapting to a more controlled style either. Mike Anderson hasn't coached at MU for a couple of yrs now. Under Frank Haith, the Tigers play much more under control and they're able to because of Pressey, who's well-versed in PnR play and dissecting half court defenses in general.
Pressey is the best passer in the nation but he doesn't really do anything else at an elite level. He can make it in the NBA and is certainly a unique talent however I don't really ever see him being a starter. Pressey has a lot of the same knocks on him as Kendall Marshall only Pressey is smaller. I see him as an early second round pick and solid playmaking back up PG for a while in the league.
I'd actually say he's elite in a couple of areas: running an offense and his vision (passing). He's also at or near elite level in terms of quickness with the ball in his hands.
Unlike Kendall Marshall, Pressey can beat his man off the dribble (without the help of a balls creen) and collapse the defense. Pressey is extremely quick.
