Slow Mo not so slow after all
When you take into account that he is 6'9 230 maybe you realize that its pretty ridicouls how dexterous and agile he is, he can break down a guard with an in and out move. He is filling the stat sheet in an unbelivable manner and shooting over 50% from three, still with room to improve just about every aspect of his game. He is number 10 in my current board. He and mcdermott have the highest bb iq in cbb imo, followed by Craft.
He doesnt have the body type that shows potential for over top physical attributes but he is a big guy that can shapen up more just a bit. If he doesnt declare this year, he is your 2015 college player of the year.
Also you hear about these new hybrid power forwards in regards to most of these combe forwards and short PFs, in that case i think Kyle is underrated, because i think in the future he will be able to play the 4 according to matchups. Think about how many teams have a possible matchup for Kyle at the four. He will not be able to guard the blake griffins and whatnot but there are plenty of teams who spot a short combonat the four every now and then, thats when kyle comes in.
i think he is definitely an improving player that is obvious by his improving fg and 3pt percentage. i think he reminds me of when tobias harris was playing point-forward for tennessee. tobias is also much improved since then as well. i think anderson is definitely lottery worthy. i think it would be fun to see him and wiggins going to orlando. vucevic, harris/anderson/wiggins/harkless, afflalo and oladipo would be long and athletic.
He is slow for a PG, but has the quickness to be a good defensive forward and obviously is quick on the offensive end of the floor for a player with the height/length of an NBA PF. He may not be jet quick, but I think he will have an easier time defending perimeter players in the NBA than TJ Warren, Dario Saric, Doug McDermott or Jabari Parker. His focus on defense isn't great, but he has all the necessary attributes to be a very versatile defender once he gets stronger and more fit. And he is an outstanding defensive rebounder to boot, with the reach to translate that skill to the NBA.
I definitely think Anderson could be worth a lottery pick. I worry he will end up being a little too reliant on his jump shot in the NBA due to his lack of explosiveness, but he is a really skilled and intelligent player who can get his jumper off whenever he wants to and is just an elite passer. He does have to learn to move without the ball better and develop a reliable 3-point shot (His shot has been excellent this season, but he will have to adjust to NBA range and not shooting over much smaller defenders all the time). On a team that moves the ball with a scoring PG, Anderson could really excel in a point forward role.
Best Case: Smarter + Longer Hedo Turkoglu or Less Athletic Lamar Odom
Kinda realistic: Taller Anthony Mason
Worst Case: Less Athletic Royce White minus mental baggage
im sorry but he is slow, even for someone 6'9. i've watched a few games this year and his nick name fits his game perfectly cus he looks like he's working in slow motion lol.
i do love his smarts and how he makes good decisions with the ball. a good passer and his jumper has improved from last year. he's a triple double threat every game in college, he's an intriging prospect. i doubt he'll get selected in the lottery due to how underwhelming his athletcism,quickness,and laterall movement is, but a team will snatch him up in the 20s.
Anderson having one of his better games of the season tonight vs Colorado. He has 22 pts 11 asts and 7 rebs and shot 7-12 from the field and 2-2 from three. Just completely picked the buffaloes apart.
