It seems like most people project scheyer to play the 2 In the league. If he was drafted by a team that plays a grind it out pace couldn't he play the 1. In the halfcourt set scheyer would bring the ball up and then be thrust into the role of a sg basically. He's good off the ball and I think could spread the floor for a good halfcourt team. One thing that makes scheyer great at the college level is his pace. He never gets out of control and he rarely makes mistakes. I'm not sure what the added pressure will do to him in the NBA but I don't think he'll be terrible. As for his lack of athleticism, he never really tries to beat people with size or speed, he's just a crafty player
who finds other ways to score off the dribble. I think his lack of athleticism is being overplayed a bit. Clemson and GT have very athletic bigs (favors, lawal, booker, and jerai grant). In both of those games scheyer got points off the bounce. Even without his shot falling he scored against gt, most of it midrange and layups. I don't think he will be an NBA superstar but I think he'll be better than most people are projecting him to be now
i think he will be in the leauge but people get confused with college and the nba. two different leauges. you also have to take in accoutn dukes system and his roles in the system. his role in the nba wont be the team leader or to shoot as much or even have the ball in his hands as much. what nba team would he do that for?.
i think he'll be a SG role player
unless his team has real good shotblockers
i dont think hes gonna do a lot in the nba but i take into account he;s putting up good numbers against athletic guards while leadin ghis team to wins and can shoot and never had any problem scoring since he's been in college and if j.j reddick can go first round tyhen theres no reason he cant go second. if you put up those numbers and can shoot and youre playing for a top 10 school then you will get drafted. i cant think of anyone playing for a team that highly ranked, putting up those kind of numbers and not get drafted
I dont think he'll be as bad as everyone thinks. He doesn't rely on the three as much as JJ does so I dont think he's going to have as much of a wakeup call in the league. I think he's more versatile and can do more than one thing pretty well. One thing he's really good at is drawing fouls. He gets to the line at a pretty good rate (6 a game) and shoots 91%. I read something on draftexpress about him that said he gets fouled more on jumpshots than any other player in the NCAA by a wide margin. He always seems to find a way to draw contact after the release. He's got a high basketball IQ and I think he can succeed and have a good career in the league. I don't know how his career will go but I dont think he will be a bad player in the NBA.
Scheyer is a way better athlete and defender than Redick was his senior year. Critics too often equate "good shooter," "Duke player" or of course, "white" with "unathletic." Scheyer might not win a slam dunk contest, but there's more to athleticism than being able to jump out of the gym. Scheyer has excellent body control and is very strong with the ball, both handling and finishing. Defensively, he is probably the best anticipator Duke has had since Battier. Those that blindly assume Scheyer is unathletic or can't defend aren't really watching him closely, IMO.
With that said, I don't see Scheyer being more than a reserve in the league...but if he continues to put up these numbers and Duke stays in the top 10, he will get drafted off of that alone. I think his stock also goes way up as a 6'5'' PG entering the draft than as a 6'5'' SG.
he has to play alongside taller defenders if they want
to exploit his height
Iguodala, Kobe Bryant, etc.
not too many good defenders at the SG spot to cover for Scheyer defensively weaknesses
and then on offense he is marginal strength wise
he'll have to learn that Steve Nash push off fadeaway move
Idk good luck Scheyer though you are a hard worker and I can only dream of being in the situation he is in, right now.
Look, to be honest...alot of people think of him and say, So he's dominated College, so did Reddick and Morrison and they are NOTHING right now. Although Reddick hasn't been as bad. & he plays at Duke...so yeah, only one white dude has came in and did his thing...well that I know of which is Love. Kevin Love. :) haha. I'm not saying we are racist or anything. It's just the truth. I think he'll be drafted...But I don't think he's going to be an Above Average Player, he'll be Borderline Average, maybe a Specialist if in the right system
Chase Budinger is doing a hell of a job in Houston, i always thought Budinger would be ok in the league but was highly slept on, hopefully scheyer can come into the league and prove alot of nay sayers wrong
On the home page the question was "Who will be the number 2 pick in this years draft"?
More people picked Scheyer than Evan Turner.
I found that kinda humorous
yep, i agree.
The Duke flopping system does not transcend to the NBA, sorry.
what does flopping have to do with this guys game?..wayyy of topic
good thing rtbt isnt on right now cuz he would definatly have something to say about that rubio. as far as white players
have all been pretty good players
redick is starting to find a role..
Jon Scheyer=Chris Quinn.
Take it how you want...
wayyy different players. scheyer could be steve kerr
He would fit in with Portland just like Steve Blake does.
i feel like scheyer is a pure european player and will eventually be a good over seas player but if drafted and some how stays in the nba i feel like he can eventually be a lot like how reddick has managed to play at the moment. yes reddick was one of the greatest offensive players in duke history but didnt have the pg skills that would translate to the nba....but scheyers are more refined and eventually that can create a good bench player....but at worst i see him being like a cobi karl or luke jackson just not making his way but hopefully he gets the doubters wrong...and how can u deny the duke system...have guys heard of battier, boozer, brand, reddick, duhon, dunleavy, grant hill, maggette, luol deng, dhantay jones....pretty decent guys if u ask me
tru. although those duke players were already thought of as being future nba players before going to duke. i dont see john being like blake though. blakes always been known as a true pg. never been though of as a combo and if john does go overseas he will be perfect over there. future euro player of the year type. his game is damn near perfect for over there
I was just poking fun at the flopping thing :\
I'm really tired of the Scheyer threads already, and I'm getting tired of repeating myself.
Chicago develops some nice PG's, including Mr. Scheyer.
I think Scheyer could certainly fit in the league. His size and shooting ability could really be a nice change of pace for a team. Plus, the guy never turns the ball over. I don't know that he could be a starter, but he could play the one or the two off the bench.
