How can u pass on sumthin like this?
Good video. Thanks for the link.
I think the secret is out on this kid. The thing I can't get over is the combination of strength and shooting skills (How many 50-40-90 guys are there?). I've heard a couple of people say that he's the next Adam Morrison but I don't buy it. He's too strong. He's going to be a really good 3-4 guy, and I hope the Jazz give him a serious look.
Hey, this guy loos very good. But, why is nobody giving him the "played in a weak conf" thing like they were giving Paul George? George's stock took a hit because of that
he would be a great role player but i think hes too slow and can't go right in the nba. i still think hes a good player who should be looked at outside the lottery. maybe like 15-20
Isnt he suppose to look good on highlights...
Babbit vs Morrison Differences. ( this video shows much more than the other in his profile.)
1. Babbit is a better shooter
2. Babbit is a better Ballhandler
3. Babbit is a better passer
4. Babbit is tiny Bit taller
5. Babbit has much better body strenght
6. Babbit is much nmore atheltic
7.Babbit can post up and rebound ( i remember few bobcats games when morrison hit for 20 points just one or two rebs and 2 assists with like 35% from the field)
8. see Babbits free throw attempts, he appears capable of drawing plenty of contact and punishing the other teams with high percentage FT
Game Resemblances just both are good shooters and both are tall small forwards, and thats it.
What i see is that he is deceptive athletic, good passer and strong, i really like the Mullin comparisons, i see someting of Peja Too.
If somebody took Morrison so low i would take babbit on the top 5.
I want this kind of player on my celts, but he will likely be gone by that, but he would fit in most systems.
i dont reaaly know why is he ranked 7 in athleticism number on this site, i think he more like 8---8.5
I think you guys are throwing out this and that but really who needs him. I like Babbitt but there are tons of guys i can get video of and make a claim for. My first mock I had Babbitt going to Boston before the combine. i have already seen the videos and I am impressed but the thing is what are you making him out to be. I think he is a strong offensive player who can play both forward positions. He will struggle on defense but he has the potential to be a decent defender. Overhyping people is how people get disappointed. Babbitt should at least live up to some of the expectations but let's not get carried away. I see people with similiar combine numbers and videos get downplayed by people on here and I am like come on. I get in trouble on here for having few bias against fans that have a lot of bias and can't look at things as they are.
Seems to be a better all around athelete than Morrison but yet has a great touch.
BTW, he did drive right in the video, watch it again...
Seems like he'll be a good pickup for someone. He needs to add ore strength though...
He will step right in and ball up next year.
He is not slow if you watch him he can move his feet well and he is athletic.
He can shoot and handle the ball.
He is one tough dude. He will be fine on D he wont be a stopper but he wont get abused.
He is not going to be an all star but he will be a starter and a good role player.
3rd best small forward in the draft.
Don't even mention Morrison and this kid together, Morrison moves like can not rebound my dude can 9
or more a game for 2 years. And he is was a sophomore in college before coming out.
That video doesnt say anything that this video doesn't:
Not saying i agree that he's the next AM, but a highlight reel isnt the way to prove it
Looking at that Morrison video. He clearly doesn't have the handles that Babbitt has. Nor does he show any athleticism in that video. The guy is just slow, and when he gets in trouble he picks up his dribble and throws up some tough shots.
Babbitt's video is impressive. He is a better athlete than I imagined, and has good handles for a guy his size. This is on top of simply being a much better shooter than Morrison ever was.
morrison is 20 pounds lighter and vert 25,30 (look at his thunderous dunks in the video ;) he cant even jump)
Babbit vert 29.5, 37.5 plus looks more skilled even in the video (Better Ersan Illyasova at least) looks a good standing dunker also.
Babbit will spend most of his time at the 4. mark my words
If Indiana takes him that is where he will probably play and I can see them take him unless they get Hayward late somehow.
Babbit he reminds me of Rodney Rodgers and I think thats the type of impact he will have in the league...
