Tony Crocker

does anyone think he has a chance at the nba or at least playing overseas. For those who don't know him he is a 6'6 200 pound sg from oklahoma who will be a senior this upcoming year.he has only averaged about 10 ppg in his 3 years at OU but he is an excellent 3 point shooter who can hang 30 points on you if he is hot(see his game against Syracuse) and he has steadily improved his overall game each year at Ou.

His inconsistency would

His inconsistency would probably lead him to being undrafted. Definitely has a chance over seas though as a 3 point specialist. Me might can crack a roster as a 10-12th guy. If he works hard and has a solid year, he might can impress a few GM's.

As long as he makes a roster he can make $100,000/year so if he's up for traveling he can make a living doing what he loves.

I think he has a shot. He could be like Matt Barnes. He has that 3 point ability but he plays amazing Defense and D wins Championships.

I like when he is on

He just is too off and on. I seen Games where he is unstopable and games where he is no where to be found. I don't think he makes it unless he averages around 19 to 23 this year.

Not at all....

Travis Outlaw is about 1,000 times more athletic than him, they just look alike. Tony Crocker isnt an NBA player,sorry. He is a poor ball handler, a player that cant create shots,and he's very weak and it shos on his dribble drive and on D. He also isnt going to make it as a 3 point specialist from what Ive seen because he's a truly feast or famine shooter. Usually famine though.

iguodala9

Travis Outlaws main attribute is three point shooting like Crocker. Outlaws athletic but hes an awful defender like Crocker, thats why i find their game comparable.

I see

Outlaw's main weapon is his mid-range game, but I agree Outlaw is a bad defender. They have similar builds and both of their standout traits are their shooting, but he isnt an NBA level athlete and he isnt quick (which you have to be for his size if you want to survive in the NBA), while Outlaw is quick and is an elite athlete.

No he's not...

He shot 35% from 3 last year. Those arent pretty darn good shooting numbers.

From what I have seen

Crocker is a hot and cold three point shooter who is cold more often. To be a specialist at shooting the three I feel you need to be a, get him off the line do not let him shoot that ever guy. I do not think Crocker is that guy. I do like him, but for the NBA I don't think he is going to make it. Needs to show huge improvement in consistency this year like I said 18 to 22 a night type play. Or over 40 percent shooting 3's

Nope

Crocker is a solid college player, There are a lot of talented guys who will make conference 2nd and 3rd teams who don't have what it takes in the league. I don't see him getting drafted, but i think a career in Europe awaits him, if he chooses to take that route.

Haha

35% is average, it wont make a scout say "that kid is a great shooter". And what does me being able to shooting 35% have to do with anything? Pretty childish of you...
