What do you guys think of Avery Bradley and Lance Stephenson as pro prospects? What can they bring to a team and where do you see them going in the draft? Are they both one and dones?
I havent watched alot of Lance Stephenson but Avery Bradley will be a beast. He reminds me alot of Russel Westbrook hes not a pure PG but I think he can play it. Hes very athletic, has a good mid range game, and is a very good defensive player i think he will be very good in the pros.
Lance Stephenson set the record for most points in New York and hes a been a terrific player so far and will continue to shine in college but I don't see him as a star in the NBA, sure he will be a solid player and help a team out but definitely not a superstar. Avery Bradley will continue to shine in college and in the NBA, he may be undersized but I honestly don't think it matters. It hasn't mattered before why will it matter in the future. He's humble, hard working and a great player. He seems like he would be able to be a good leader for a team.
I think Stephenson is gifted offensively, and has the ability to have a Paul Pierce type career. He has every tool you need to be an all-around dominant player. He isn't an elite leaper, but he's explosively quick and has long arms to compensate. It's just about whether he'll defend (same question was asked about Pierce before they got the Big 3) and keep his attitude in check. I think he will.
Bradley will be a good player, he a mix of Monta Ellis and Westbrook. That's a very good mix.
if hes that then he will have a great career i like the fact that hes a humble player and hard worker so he should succed because of that
Stephenson definitely has an attitude problem which is not good but nothing that can't be fixed. He's very good offensively but I am not sure if he is relying on athleticism too much. He scores with ease no doubt kind of like Carmelo Anthony but he relying on athleticism doesn't always turn out well though it does help.
I dont think Niether should be One and Done
i think they both can be good players in the league but i think stephenson should stay two years to show the nba scouts what he really is capable of. Bradley is a very good player he can be one and done but if he enter the nba draft after his freshman year he might have an ok rookie year rather than a dominating one because he is stuck between the 1 and 2.
Stephenson can score buckets quick and he better passer than what he gets credit for he reminds me of joe johnson somebody than score and pass and be a good player in the league lance isnt super athletic but he can get the job done.
Bradley is very good player who can score and lock u down on defense he just lacks a true position he would have excellent size if he was a true point guard but if he plays shooting guard in the league he will be undersize but i think he can still get by with his height because of his wingspan. Like iguodala9 said he reminds u of monta ellis and russell westbrook.
I think Stephenson is a superstar, but he's inconsistent. Bradley is obviously going to be great at Texas. Stephenson I hope cause I like him will do good.
Stephenson: HELL NO
Have you ever seen this guy play? well honestly i haven't and i can already say just from youtube clips that the guy just doesn't have it. very limited athleticism. the guy has some serious attitude issues from what i hear, and from what i saw he's badly duck-footed, which also cuts down on his lateral quickness. all in all i'm not at all impressed.
you know who lance kinda reminds me of?..tyreke evans...in camps and sometime son his team hes played the pg and has played it pretty well..he is a very good passer and has that nyc handles when hes in shape of lose a lil weight he is pretty athletic (anyone who seen him play as a fr/soph before he put on more weight knows what im talking about)...bradley is a player i have high hopes for..i see him and walls career being similar to westbrook and rose potenially with the same debates about whos better IF bradley learns to play the pg position..the thing about lance you wont appreciate his game from watching youtube but when you actually watch him in some games you realize the kid can play and score in many different ways..though he reminds me a lil of evans his game is alot more like paul pierce
