What freshman will have impact on college ball besides john wall?
My pick is Avery Bradley. Bradley is a great defender he is fast got a silky smooth jumper solid handles and dunk on you if he drive to the paint. Only thing i can say bad about him is he need to work on his playmaking skills and become a pure point guard he can play the 2 in the nba i think he has more potential as a point guard though. Comparison:Russell Westbrook with a better jumper
Another freshman is Derrick Favors a 6'9 forward with elite athleticism he is liking a one and done player he got good post moves but not great post moves. In the nba he could be a combo forward but he lacks and outside jumpshot and handles. Favor is a great shotblocker with an crazy wingspan.
Comparison:Josh Smith is what this site says he also reminds me of mike beasley
Xavier Henry is underrated player in this class he has a great jumper but he needs to work on his ballhandling and he isnt very athletic as an avery bradley or john wall. Needs to drive to the hoop more.
Lance stephenson is a head case and he has a bad attitude but he can score buckets and can pass.If he gets in shape i think he is a lottery pick he's a sleeper.
Durand Scott of Miami will surprise alot of people.
No John Wall huh....he's the top freshman to me.
Keith ''Tiny'' Gallon of oklahoma is the best freshman
Yes he is Iggy but he said besides Wall
hands down. I agree with you
wow..derrick favors reminds you of beasley?..i just dont see it. beasley had more moves a much much better jump shot. i also cant agree with the josh smith one as far as jumping..yeah favors can jump but hes not on josh smiths level. right now he has the potenial to be very good though he doesnt really do aything very well but finds ways to score. id have to say, even though they arent the same, he reminds me of a potenial (key word) bigger d wilkens since neither handles the ball very well or shots very well but boh finds ways to score and are athletic

WOW I hope you're not serious. Favors has a GREAT looking jumpshot.....very good mid range shooter and has become a very solid 3 point shooter. Dude is 6'10 234 and just turned 18 years old and is a dominant rebounder, great scorer, and great shot blocker. People keep saying that Favors will play SF but I seriously doubt it. He will be one of the best big men in the NBA in a few years. MARK IT DOWN
yea but everything u sayin about him people were saying about beasley and thats why i said they are similar favors jumper doent look great his form isnt normal remember last year when people were saying tyreke evans jumper is good but when he got to college it wasnt and he had trouble and he had to cahnge his form. Favor jumper is ok at this point. Yeah i agree with u he is a power foward not a small foward
u guys are forgetting Keith ''tiny'' Gallon aka Baby Shaq!
Renardo Sidney is a great talent.
id have to say the allamerican who signed with minnesota. cant remember his name right now but he is very very good and already has a nba body
i agree with Avery Bradley he really fits Texases need and could helplead them to a title.
Wow...Im sorry about that man lol. Shouldve read it all the way.
I think its Derrick Favors hands down. He reminds me alot of Mike Beasley as well, and I think he will put up stats that are similar. He is the real deal, and if you watched Mike Beasley he didnt use alot of moves, he would seal his man off with his strength and get close enough to the rim to get an easy finish. Beasley is the better shooter though and he shows more touch around the basket, but Favors dunks it alot more around the rim than Beasley does.
The All American who signed with Minnesota was Royce White.
i knew his last name was white i couldnt remember his first name
^I can see similarities between him and Michael Beasley but you're wrong about his jumper....it does not look weird at all..he has very good form on his jumpshot. I saw him play 10+ times last year and he shot consistantly from 15+ feet. Favors just reminds me so much of Kevin Garnett minus being a headcase.
yea i been lookin for a comparison i think the kevin garnett one is the best i saw a game on espnu he was dominating in the paint but his jumper wasnt on but maybe it was just that game
^Which game was it?
It was the game vs demarcus cousins but i saw the second half he had an amazing double double though.
That was the game he dropped 39 points and 21 rebounds but his jumper was definently on that game. He was 2-3 from 3 and hit 6 jumpers from 15 feet and beyond.
I saw the second half im not saying he lacking ajumper i just saying needs better shot mechanics a better form
I think Kenny Boynton Jr. because of how depleted Florida is at Guard. He has a sweet jumper and knock down any distance shot
John Henson if he gets the PT will be better then most of these prospects
1.Renardo Sidney- 21ppg9rpg3apg1.5bpg1spg..300pounder can run,handle, shoot 3s'!!
2.Derrick Favors-20ppg11rpg3bpg he will go higher in the draft , but because he is just 18, and his work ethic is WAAAYYYY better
3.Avery Bradley-18ppg3rpg3apg2spggreat scorer, great defender, but not true pg
5.Xavier Henry-15ppg4rpg2apg I like him at #3 but playing with Cole and Collins he won't have amazing stats
Sidney is sick but i dont think he goin average that much unless he is healthy and has a problem getting in good condition
yes i agree, but he is so talented for sure
