Let's start the discussion
i think hell have atleast 10points 3 or 4 rebounds and more turnovers than assists
I guess once you start liking a Pac-10 team you start to root for other Pac-10 teams when you watch them play, because i find myself wanting each Pac-10 team to win when they play. Never cared before this year. Conflicted this game though Since Shelby is a Fellow area player
Selby looks really good on the defensive end. He shows from an early start that he is very disciplined by denying his the man the ball on off the ball D and on ball D.
10pts??????? HAHAHAHA TRY 20........he has 6 of those 10 less then 5 minutes......"PROMISE" OF A GOOD PLAYER
Josh selby has a very nice shooting form he;s been holding some good defense early on.
That's that Bmore defensive toughness (Sam Cassell,Mugsy Bogues, Sean Mosley) for guards, forwards is another matter..lol
looks like he did back in the D.C summer league out at DOCS gym with that scorers mentality.
Will he be a 1 & done prospect?
He could be 1 and done depennding on how he's projected
its mid-major week for tennessee
looks more like a SG to me
Thats because they are playing him more at the shooting guard since he's a very good scorer.
but he is sg there and looked like sg in McDonalds game ect..and even Josh said he's more combo than PG..
He's a point guard who can play the SG ala Steve Francis. College's usually put great scoring Point guards at the shooting to get the best out of there strengths.
^ I think you have it mixed up, he's a SG that can play PG.
No because He's spent more time as a good point guard then he has as a scoring one. Shelby wasn't always a score first Point guard. He used to be a pretty good passer ala Francis. started out as more of a passer then realized that he could score alot. Same with Sam Cassell, Actually the same with all the good Point guards from the Maryland area. You won't see his true point guard skills until he gets to the NBA ( like Russell Westbrook as well except Shelby has played point guard alot). Im basing this more off of his career since his soph year and not a half of a college game and a AllAmerican game
I wouldn't say Westbrook is a true PG
^^^^ LMAO ok
This game is good! Cmon USC..
Renardo Sidney will most definitely have to show up after Selby's performance. He is officially gone this year
Selby with the 3!!!
SELBY GOOD GOOD GOOD
I knew selby could score didnt know he could shoot like that his last 3 was clutch
Ice water running in Selby's veins.
Still have him ahead of Knight.
Everyone probably has him ahead of Knight now which will not surprise me
Wasn't he projected ahead of Knight anyway even before the game?
Not on this site...Selby is way below Knight in the 2011 mock.
Selby reminds me of Jayson Williams that's just of first impressions. Its nice to see a high profile recruit perform to expectations. He hit the go head basket for kansas and you knew he was ready. Not many players regardless of class come off a nine game suppensiom and are immediatly ready to play and hit game winning basket. If Kyrie Irving stays out for rest of the season you can make the case Selby is first guard taken look for his stock to rise to top 5 maybe even top 3.
I like Shelby but i wouldn't make a case for him to be the first guard taken just yet. Lets remember its only one game with many more to come. He could stay on fire or he could go down hill from here. We tend to get ahead of ourselves on here after a game or two.
Stevie Franchi$e was not a pure PG he was a scorer and that is what a Team will be getting in Selby.....Franchi$e 2.0
who said anything about being a pure point guard?
And what teams actually want pure point guards int he NBA?..the NBA has moved to scoring point guard. Able to score and pass
I love the two clutch 3's he hit down the stretch. Hopefully he can continue to produce. Also it surprised me how good of a shooter he was, even though it was only one game, he has a nice 3 ball.
USC also had their starting pg debut today in Jio Fontan. He was the former atlantic 10 freshman of the year and transferred and will be big for the trojans going forward. He finished with 15 today.
You look at the Lakers and Celtics, they are the 2 premier teams in the NBA and there PG's are both pure PG's. All those PG's you list have no championships. I think that's the problem with the NBA today is there are very limited true PG's, all these hybrids are bad for the NBA.
i really really like Selby's game but i really don't know why he could be higher on my board, especially when Knight is around 1year 9months younger.
