here whoever passes on demarcus cousins will regret it bigtime down the road, i realize the guy is everything from nut-case to a nympho(lol) but he is gonna be a bigtime player, his numbers are nothing short of amazing at 15 and 11 in about half a ball game. And also i wanna know if anyone agrees w/ me here when i say evan turner will be the best player in the class
But I see turner as the 3rd best player out of thi draft. John wall will be a 20,8,4 guy with a steal and some change and could be one of the top defensive pgs in the game. Cousins is a 20 and 10 center with an 80's approach to banging. He's got a little Rick mahorn in him. I would love that in my big man that has the talent he has. Turner is Joe Johnson 2.0 probally a career 20,5,5 guy maybe 22,6,6 at best all are good it's just what do u need. If the nets draft favors over cousin they will regret it.
It is easy to see why people rate Wall so high, he has all the tools to be a top notch PG.
Everyone says Turner will be like Roy, I'm not so sure about that one. To me time will tell, from what I have read he isn't that good of an outside shooter & he isn't a trmendous athlete.
Cousins could be top notch, he needs to mature and work harder to be in shape and maximize his potential, again time will tell. I think he is getting undeserving critisicium for his temper or competitive fire, what ever you want to call it.
To me the player with the most potential and that could end up being the best of this draft is Favors, he is tall, long, the most athletic of the bigs, with the proper coaching he would be my pick for best player of this draft.
Dont see the Joe Johnson/Evan Turner comparison. I think there is a great chance that people will really regret passing on Cousins, but there is just as good of a chance that he kills some hooker when she questions his mental toughness. Cousins will be good if not great, as long as he goes to a good situation and the team surrounds him with quality people off the court, not his childhood friends.
evan turner can handle the ball like a point guard. He has a great mid range game needs to work on outside more. If you are worrying about his athleticism what part of it? Is it in question because his head doesnt touch the rim when he dunks? look at Tyreke evans he doesnt dunk the ball that often just excels at getting layups. he brings the ball up the court and breaks people down. I think Evan turner has some of those same characteristics. Only time will tell though. joe johnson isnt really like turner imo
Everything u guys said sounds like Joe Johnson to me turner is a better rebounder bout he's a big guard who can play the point or the three and more suited to be a number 2 option rather than a number 1 like reke.
^But Joe Johnson is an excellent shooter and a little bigger.
