Who are some of your sleepers in the upcoming drafts or guys you see climbing the draft board? M.Washington is a guy I think will be rising up the draft board, he reminds of what A.Blatche would look like if he went to college.W.Matthews is a guy that will be a pleasant surprise for some lucky G.M. Maynor is another good choice, I think he will have a metoric rise like Tony Parker he might get drafted lower than he should but, I feel it will work out for him in the end. Not saying he will be that good but I feel he could sneek up on some guys. Calathes is a guy that will see his stock grow by leaps and bounds not a sleeper but a guy that will be more than a solid pro. Sure I forgot some obvious choices wanted to know what you guys think?

Yes two guys from Virginia

There are two players on Virginia. Sylvan Landesburg (a Freshmen averaging 19 ppg.) and Mike Scott (a great athlete who has good size for the NBA) Though their record isn't great, these kids have skills. Also Jerel McNeal of Marquette will be the a great steal in the draft.

Sleepers

All those plus Jeff Adrien is a beast and could be a good defensive/rebounding role player similar to Ronny Turiaf and AJ Abrhams can just shoot the rock so I could see him playing somewhere just to hit threes land occassionally take the ball up ike Daniel Gibson.

P.S I should be a writer for this website, sign me to a contract Aran Smith

my sleepers

David Holston for Chicago state he might be small but he has aton of talent and a very quick release and accurate shot which he doesnt need much room to get it of. Hes also very quick with a good hesitation move and works very hard. Jeremy Hazell for Seton Hall also is a very good guard with quickness and a pretty good jump shot that will have to land him somewhere in the league.

Williams could be really good

T.Williams is gonna be better than people think. With his athleticism and ball skills,he could shock some people. Also
like Singler he could be very effective in the right system. He seems to me to be a system guy.Can't count Harris out either.

Matthews and Harris

Those two are sleepers now but won't be by the end of the season. I also like Evan Turner from Ohio State but he probably will stick around for another year. I like to look at shooting pct% and T Williams has some bad numbers. I think Mac Koshwal from DePaul is gonna be a future first rounder. He has size and can rebound like a madman.

Can't argue with Williams low shooting percentage

Can't argue with Williams low shooting percentage,thats something he really needs to work on. He's prone to take some bad shots,but he shows his overall versatility. His game against N.D. where he had 16 rebounds and 8 assist, shows he can do a lot of different things.

Too many to count

Not as many superstars in this draft than in recent years but there should be solid contributers and a few stand outs. I think that greg monroe will be in the same discussions as the current top fivers. Monroe has a great base set of skills, somehow he bipassed learning the low post game and learned how to play the mid-range to outside game better. I dont see this as a problem, its much easier to teach a player to post up than it is to teach a player a face up game, especially with all the veteran bigs and specialized low post coaches in the NBA. If he can get a consistent shot and a slightly better handle, he might not even have to learn a post up game to be a real good player. This is cheap because he's already on the rise but jeff teague is the second best pg in the draft maybe the best. In a much stronger draft last year Russel westbrook went 4th overall. Jeff Teague has shown me more than Russel Westbrook ever has, i dont see how he's not projected to go to the T-Wolves in the mock draft. Foye would be able to move back to the 2 full time where he's more comfortable/productive.

NBA

Teammates Malik Hairston and Maarty Luenen unexpectedly heard their names called but Taylor didn’t.

Siirler Hikayeler Fikralar Programlar Guzel Sozler Resimler freetemplates Taylor was arguably Oregon’s best player last season, but his 6-foot-4 frame makes him a undersized at the next level. Nonetheless, his scoring ability, length and athleticism give him a chance to make in in the league.

AHMAD NIVINS

PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's senior Ahmad Nivins earned his fifth Atlantic 10 Player of the Week award for 2008-09 after leading the Hawks to three victories while averaging 26.3 points and 14.3 rebounds. Nivins was named the Co-Player of the Week, sharing the award with Richmond's Justin Harper.

Nivins was also chosen as the Big 5 Player of the Week, earning that distinction for the fourth time in 2008-09.

In the three games, Nivins shot 25-of-34 from the field and 29-of-33 from the line. He had 25 points and 10 rebounds in a win over Charlotte and followed that with a career-high 34 points and to go along with 16 boards as Saint Joseph's edged Duquesne, 99-98 in overtime. Nivins closed out the week with 20 points and 17 rebounds in a non-conference win over Penn.

The 6-9 senior has registered five consecutive double-doubles and now has 11 on the season. His five A-10 honors are tied with Mardy Collins (Temple - 2005) for the fourth-highest single-season total in league history.

Saint Joseph's (11-7; 4-0) has won six in a row and returns to action on Wednesday, January 28 at Richmond.

adrian

Jeff Adrian....this guy produces every single night at UCONN, and makes huge basket after huge basket down the stretch. Undersized, but a worker who can rebound with the best of them.
