top 5 favorite players from this draft?
1- lorenzo brown
2- jamaal frankiln
3- trey burke
4- pj hairston
5- pierre jackson
I don't really have a favorite player in this draft. This draft is very weak and is full of guys that will get drafted high based purely on ''potential''.(nerlens Noel, Otto porter, Alex Len, Alec Brown, Adonis Thomas). The only guys I'm sold in thus far is Cody zeller(even though he has t-rex arms), James mcadoo, and shabazz
Can we wait till college ball starts first?
you cant have 5 favorite players?.... you have to wait for the season to start?
to Indiana, or come from Indiana high schools. My least fav go to Purdue, maybe some from UK.
No order, and yes i go to NCSU so I like Brown and Leslie
1- James McAdoo
2- Alex Poythress
3- Cezar Guerrero
4- Shabazz Muhamad
5- Tony Mitchell / Cody Zeller
I don't watch High School ball so,
1. Jeff Withey
2. Patrick Young
3. Otto Porter
4. Cody Zeller
5. Seth Curry
1. CJ McCollum
2. CJ Leslie
3. Doug McDermott
4. DeShaun Thomas
5. Tony Mitchell
I'm in the same boat as Joe Wolf. I can't get myself to really watch high school ball, other than the all-star games.
1. Alex Abreu
2. Kendrick Perry
3. Carl Jones
4. Carl Hall
5. Zeke Marshall
I really like Lorenzo Brown's game and are glad you guys mentioned him. Need to see more of him but from what I've seen he's got some talent.
My top 5 are:
And my Sleeping Beauty for 2012/2013 is Wally Judge of Rutgers
1. Shaq Goodwin
2. DJ Stephens
3. Cody Zeller
4. Nerlens Noel
5. Chris Crawford
I have 3 Memphis Tigers plus the best big man in the game (Cody Zeller) and one of the most promising freshmen (Nerlens Noel).
Missed the cut:
Adonis Thomas: Solid player, hope he improves. Looked like a solid tweener as a freshman but needs to work on his overall game. If he can do a lot of the dirty work, defend multiple positions, and work from the mid-range I think we will be a Sweet 16 candidate.
Mason/Marshall Plumlee: I like big men that play hard and rebound. I also like great dunkers.
James McAdoo: I think he has the most raw talent and potential of any college player. Looks fluid and explosive. He's the main Carolina guy to watch.
Kyle Wiltjer: Took a backseat to the Wildcat greats last season, and I want to see how he handles a bigger responsibility. I am a sucker for guys with size who can shoot and score.
Joe Jackson: A guy who is steadily improving. A guy who can get to the rim against slower players. Wears his heart on his sleeve, which can sometimes get him in trouble. He will be a big key to the Memphis Tigers' success this season, either as a starter, or a classic 6th man.
Tarik Black: The main Tiger big with great size. He is an underrated version of Patric Young. When he plays well, our team is very tough to beat. Should have some more help up front this year with Shaq Goodwin and a healthy Adonis Thomas. An important thing for Black will be to stay out of foul trouble.
1. Andre Roberson
Smooth athlete and very good defender. Stock will depend on whether he shows improvements in his ball handling and shooting.
2. Michael Carter-Williams
Didn't see much time on a deep 'Cuse team last year but he is a combo guard with great size. In my opinion he could be a lottery prospect if he shows he can run the point.
3. Marcus Smart
Was considered more of a power wing in high school but has been showing he can run a team at the pg position. Intelligent player who is a winner.
4. Sam Thompson
Will surprise people with more playing time this year. Won't score more than 12 ppg with Deshaun Thomas still at Ohio St but he is very explosive and has an improving jumpshot.
5. Jabari Brown
Won't be eligible until December but this is a make it or break it year for him. Very talented SG who can really fill it up, but will have to show that he has matured as a player and a person (transferred from Oregon after 2 games as a freshman last year).
1. Trey Burke
2. Shabazz Muhammad
3. Alex Poythress
4. Michael Carter Williams
5. Guorgui Dieng
