Player Comparisons For Malik Newman
Malik Newman is an extremely talented combo guard prospect who has the potential to develop into a very good NBA player. His potential to develop into an elite player in my opinion, will be determined by his ability to develop into a true combo guard who can play both the shooting guard and point guard positions equally well
Here are my player comparisons for Malik Newman ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7574kd2AnA )
Best Case Scenario: Stephon Marbury ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYm0Djpt94s )
Realistic Scenario: Monte Ellis ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Png2Q6nS3a0 )
Worst Case Scenario: Ronald Flip Murray ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3G9hWlvcD8 )
I see his best case as being Monte Ellis with better point guard skills. Steph was a super special talent, prob not the best teammate at times but still a special talent. Newman is very good, but i don't think he has Marbury talent.
funny how you say combo guard and I cant think of an all star that's a combo guard in the league today. He's gonna have to decide if hes a 1 or 2
Also have people ruled out the chance of him growing anymore because I read that his dad is 6'7". He and I are the same age and I'm still growing, though I'm about 3 to 4 inches shorter than him and his dad is a foot taller than mine.
if he dont put it together. depends on school he picks imo
Would love to see him at NC State or UConn, preferably NC State with Barber. Purvis would not be a bad consolation backcourt mate either.
I like that worst case scenario Flip Murray comparison.
Best case a cross between Wes Matthews and Victor Oladipo
