TONY WROTEN is without the question the best point in this draft !
yo aquile carr is better than lillard and he is in highschool.
No Carr is not better. Carr isn't even one of the top 25 players in his class. Has this site really come down too people who base talent off of youtube and low basketball knowledge
So....everybody in the media, who was at the combine, got Wroten's time wrong, but you got it right?
Tony Wroten's 10.78 sec 100 meter time in one of the first track meets of the year was a non-official hand time that was leeked to the media because he is, well,...an extremely highly touted high school basketball star. His best time for his senior season in high school was 11.16 sec, which is still an impressive time, but just another example of you fabricating stats.
Wroten was a good high school track athlete, but not great. Running 11 second 100 meters is nothing to scoff at, but there were kids at my school doing the same thing and they sure as hell weren't hands down faster than everyone in the NBA except Nate Robinson. Running 11 sec 100 meter dashes will get you DII, Juco and NAIA scholarship offers, but Tony isn't Hussein Bolt in a basketball jersey.
- Wroten measured at 6’4 3/4 with no shoes on and 6’6 with shoes. That is taller than many expected him to be because basketball players are usually referenced with shoes on. He weighed 203, with a 6’9″ wingspan, and 8’5″ reach.
- Ross measured at 6’6″ without shoes and 6’7″ with shoes on. This is about an inch higher than expected though as the season went on last year, people were noticing that he was just barely shorter than Darnell Gant. He weighed 196.6, with a 6’7 1/2″ wingspan, and a 8’5″ reach.
- Wroten also was the fastest in the sprint. This is great for his stock as he not only was the fastest at his position but the fastest at the combine.
And all of tony's time during his brief track run were in regular shoes in a reciever stance . I agree he is not a track guy but is by far the fastest person in this draft mr wolfy
tony wroten averaged over 16 points a game and scored 27 and 29 poins in games this season without taking a SINGLE jumpshot. he is a next level passer and is only 19 years old. with a strong work ethic (which he has) and more experience why wouldnt he improve? to me that kind of potential is worth at least a late lottery pick? why pass on a kid who could become a top 5 PG for a guy who willl be a servicable starter at best? wizardofoz says he is the next javaris crittenton? didnt this n!gg@ murder someone or something? peoplle out here have been calling wroten a bad person for years! i thought it was because he was a little cocky and peolpe dont like young kids that just exude confidence. he has never been in any trouble so i dont know where this bad rap comes from. anyway i think wrotens game is more suited for the NBA and when the season starts i think a lot of you guys will be jumping on his bandwagon quick.
if his shot wasnt broke hed be the best but he shot like 16 percent from 3 and58 free throow line he could end up being similiar to rondo rondos shot was broke in college
Tony is by far the best the best prospect in this draft . he is a future hall of famer . while you riticule now only makes the story so much more grand . he has been number one in the nation since 5th grade until his junior yr he got hurt . 5 yr straight on an aau platform that yields players like gilcrest and many more . you think that is coincidence . when i said avery bradley would be the number 1 highschool prospect people laughed . he became number 1 , won the dunk contest and etc . Isaiah went 60th and is up for rookie of the yr . IT broke adam morrison 4 game scoring record in 3 with over 50 a game at state , the only reason im stating this is because Tony thrives in the envirement of elite . washington states prince is a big statement . check the pros . Tony was the first freshman to make all state in the state of washington among every body in the nba at a time when washington had a top 5 player in every class . Avery bradley number 1 , josh smith number 1 , peyton siva and abdul gaddy top 5 and TONY WROTEN JR number 1 !! And Tony was the best one , not to discredit anybody but it was true . PLEEEEAASE one person who is on this thread tell me they thought Isaiah Thomas would be up for rookie of the year . Wish i could have posted that last year . Would you think avery would start over RAY ALLEN lol something specials bout to happen . TONY will show inprove people . The 206 253 game is something insane and Tony may be the best one ....
T-WILL , MAL CRAWFORD , B ROY , A BROOKS , RODNEY STUCKY , NATE ROB , JASON TERRY , AVERY BRADLEY , ISAIAH THOMAS ETC
P.S EVEN SPENCE HAWES IS KILLING !! peace
Maybe if TWJr had signed with a big powerful agent his stock might be rising in the media:
Media ='s Medium ='s Hypnotizing Minds
Instead of guys like Chad Ford calling him a bad teammate & questioning his off court lifestyle & activities.
This kid is going to blow some people's minds- for the good in Vegas..........
There's alot of mis information going around about TWJr- coincidence?
TWJr is a top level athlete among NBA players- point blank.
This kid is a top 10 pick in my mind as his upside is crazy we'll see where he goes in a couple of days from now but those Mocks saying that he won't go in the 1st round are stuck on stupid rewind it and loop it.............
I like Wroten a lot to be honest with you, even if he is a combo guard.
I also heard that Wroten had the fastest time. Does that mean the Draft express measurements are wrong? I think they also got some of the heights wrong as well.
I don't see any way this kid falls out of the top 20 on draft nite- I still think a Rubio & Wroten Jr backcourt would be off of the hook dimes galore!!
Lance Stephenson. Not becasue I think he'll throw his old lady down the stairs, but because of their similar stats as freshmen in middling BCS leagues. Both shot 45%, mostly on drives to the hoop. Both shot terribly from 3 (22% for Lance, 16% for Wroten). Both shot poorly from the FT line. Both had Ast/TO ratios of 1:1. Wroten is much faster, while Lance is much stronger. Wroten had better stl numbers, but I would not call his defense solid. The final thing I will say is both players had people who thought they would be the next great "big point guard" and wouldn't listen to anyone who said anything differently.
I think he can be good even without a great jumper. I know there 2 different players but look what Rondos and Tyreke Evans have done.
That being said he needs another year of college to develope.
