I really hope shabazz goes to Detroit. I think they are a team on the rise in the nba, and I think he would be a good fit there. they don't have a true SG right now, and I think he will end up playing SG in the nba and not SF. also I believe joe dumas would get him to be a nasty defender. they could really use another great scorer to be a playoff contender. Drummond and Monroe are very impressive bigs to me, and calderon gives them what they need from a PG standpoint. I think shabazz will do very well at the nba combine workouts and prove why he should be a 2 and not a 3. I think Brandon knight could be a lethal sixth man off the bench for them. he is more of a scoring pg than a passer in my opinion.
That does look like a really good fit for him. I think he and Kyle Singler will give them some different looks on the wing. Brandon Knight or whoever at point guard, plus the two big guys inside.
That looks like a good young core.
Shabazz looks like the player most likely to be a "go-to scorer" in the league. I think that is something that the Pistons need.
I think they would be very well rounded with shabazz. there are a few things he needs to work on, but I think with his work ethic it should not be to hard to correct. even if he is not there top scorer in his rookie year( which I don't think he will be) he will go full speed on offence for the entire game. and I really believe in Detroit his defence will become very good. dumas will not tolerate a guard not playing d for him, and will work with shabazz on staying focused on defence for the whole game. I think what people saw with shabazz this year at ucla was a misrepresentation of his talents. he is a better athlete than what people saw this year, and although he is left hand dominant, I don't think he has no right hand at all. I think if they take him he will be there Drummond of this year, a real steal.
i personally wouldnt draft bazz in my top 10.he has too big a hole in his game with that lack of a right hand,and his inability to create off tha dribble
Who only goes left? He is not an explosive finisher from what I have seen. If he is your go to scorer you will suck. I am more confident in other guys in this draft as scorers over Bazz. He does not have great handle and never passes. He will not be a one on one gem in the NBA. He will be servicable 10-15. More than that your teams very bad.
Shabazz if the closest thing to a 'go to scorer' in this draft in my opinion. yea yea he only goes left, but in the NBA hes gonna learn really quickly he has to work on his right. I can see him struggling at the beginning of his career but then putting it together.
His game is best suited for a SG but he really has to work on being more consistent with his shot and yea....he has to learn to use his right effectively. He has the tools to be a 20+ppg a few years down the road, and if a coach can get him to play d he may even be an allstar.
He also has to realize that other people on his team can score too and pass the ball! I've seen him make some nice passes and show good vision at times but he is almost always looking to score. He has some holes in his game but they are all coachabIe and he seems like a player that can be coached. If he gets drafted with a good fitting team (like the pistons) I think he is going to be a huge steal in this draft especially if he drops to say the 8th pick.
He'll be worth a top 10 pick to a handful of teams: Cleveland, Detroit, Washington, and Minnesota jump out to me. His function will be to come in and put points on the board. He doesn't have to be a star. If he became my team's 6th man and could come in and provide a much needed punch off the bench, I'd be thrilled. If none of those 4 teams listed above get in the top 3 (assuming Noel, Ben, and Porter will be gone), I could see each of them taking a loooong look at Bazz. In my mind, he is fairly low risk, as long as you don't expect him to be a perennial all star.
