Today I noticed that Peter Parker was not on the latest mock for next years draft. This is pure and utter bs. He is easily one of the best basketball players in New York and the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. He has a great jumper, amazing dribbling, great vertical leap, top speed and agility. Yeah he is a little undersized, but he makes up for it in many ways.
WT: 167 lbs
Bench Press: 10 tons
Vertical: 3 Stories
I would compare him to a superhero version of Allen Iverson. Dude can straight ball and the only reason he is not in the NBA is because David Stern is racist against superheroes. Anyone who says anything differently is a liar.
Here he is on the youtube.
Is he NCAA eligible ? I heard he goes missing from classes...and from work for long amounts of time for random reasons.
plus his drug test came back radioactively positive for something.... He's probably been hitting the Mary Jane
Does his web length count as wing span!!!
He's a great shotblocker and pickpocket artist, for some reason the ball just seems glued to him and comes flying back to his hands. I really agree with the Superhero Allen Iverson, a lot of the same basketball traits.
Of course he is eligible. You are just racist. Who cares about school and work? That shouldn't effect your draft stock when you are this good.
Here is another clip of him dunking back in high school.
Now before anyone b*tches and moans about traveling, just remember that traveling is almost non existent in the NBA especially when you are a star.... and trust me... he is a star.
I don't know he reminds me of a poor mans Venom
Though I do believe he should be on the mock draft he reminds me of a Gary Payton type player.
He'd win the dunk contest each year.
Hahahahaha is that Kyrie fooling us again???
I'm pretty sure it's a street player named The Professor.
He's a ball hog :D He's not good for PG position,too small to play SG :D :D
haha did anyone else hear that little kid at the end ask him if he plays with Batman?
Omg best thread I've seen in a while. Was laughing so hard.
I've had my suspicions of a few NBA.com writers browsing our forums before. There's been numerous times things we've posted about they put up on NBA.com the next day. I've especially been suspicious of Lang Whitaker as I've seen him make posts similar to ours 3-4 times.
I always thought to myself, nah, surely these high paid guys don't steal out content right?
Look what he posted today:
I realize he could have just casually found it on youtube or from someone else, but I'm sure a few of you have noticed the same suspicions yourself.
That video has over a million hits and was already on espn. I highly doubt that it blew up off the strength of .net's forum.
Funny thing is, if I would have been writing about this longer ago when I first noticed it, I'd be at about Exhibit H by now.
Watch out for Harry Osborn that kid has great potential.
He is a lot like his father in that he has a great killer instinct but it can be on and off sometimes. Can be a bit of a head case on and off the court but at the same time has been one of the faces of multiple personality disorder. I see Sentinel sized things in this kids future if he ever get his head on right.
