Reggie Bullock Having his Best Game as a Tarheel
James McAdoo might be North Carolina's most known player,but i think Reggie Bullock might be their best all around,dude has a nba body,nice shooting touch and he's a good defender...Right now against Maryland Bullock has 24 points and is playing his best game as a Tarheel..He had 21 of UNC's 42 points at haltime......Bullock might be playing his way back into 1st round consideration if he can continue to play this way..
McAdoo is having looking impressive,he already have double double (19 points & 11 rebounds) And showing more aggressiveness in this game ,he had a nice turnaround jumper over 7 foot Alex Len....
Bullock has a specific skill that will translate to the NBA (shooting) and has good size, but is an average athlete and I still see him has a second rounder.
Best game I've seen from McAdoo but still not many NBA ready moves made.
He doesn't just have a specific skill though. He's got a nice all-around game and plays well on both ends of the floor.
I could see a team like the Spurs targeting him should he declare.
Poor man's Danny Green at best.
Bullock isn't athletic enough to find a home in the NBA, IMHO.
What makes him a poor man's Danny Green as opposed to another Danny Green?
It's not like Green's a great athlete either and Reggie has better ball skills.
bullock is a good player.... hes late first round to early 2nd round pick.... his shooting and his size should get him drafted alone.... does anybody think that dexter Strickland has a shot at the nba?
Green could/can create his own shot and is deceptively athletic. He dunked on people in college and averaged close to 2 blocks a game his senior year. I don't think Bullock is capable of averaging 10 ppg an starting for one pf the top 5 teams in the NBA. He has no mid range game and a slow release. Green was a much better prospect.
I feel like Tyler Haws from BYU has a chance to have more of a Danny Green impact than Bullock. Dude is a MAJOR threat from anywhere on the floor and not one demensional scoring unlike Bullock.
I am a UNC homer. Strickland kind of frustrates me. He didnt't make the improvements a senior should make at UNC. Good european player. The Westbrook/Ellis comparisons were wayyyy off.
If Green was good at creating his shot he would've been a first round pick. He wasn't though, primarily because he had a weak handle and because he has to be balanced to get his shot off cleanly.
And no, he didn't block nearly 2 shots a game in college. He did block 1.3 and that's because he's a good defender with very good length for a perimeter defender (~6'10 wingspan).
I don't see why Bullock couldn't play Green's role as an NBA player. 65% of Green's shots are spot up 3's. Bullock can spot up, is actually better shooting on the move so you can run him off of curls as well, is the better ball-handler, comparable defender and is the better passer.
