Chuck Garcia moving up Draft Boards?

A couple of excerpts from an article about Chuck Garcia:

"There was a lot of buzz surrounding Charles Garcia and Seattle University visiting the Matadome on Monday night to face Cal State Northridge. Eight NBA teams sent scouts to see what the 6-foot-10 Garcia, who has been climbing up slots in the board of NBA prospects as of recently, is all about."

"Braswell got his team ready for Garcia by interrelating him to Sacramento Kings’ 6-foot-11 forward Jason Thompson. The Matadors faced Thompson, then with Rider, at the Matadome on Feb. 23, 2008.

“I think (Garcia) is a better offensive player than Thompson is,” Braswell said. “I don’t expect him to play college basketball next year. He is a pro. No doubt about it.”

1st Round Lock?

I believe he is. He has all

I believe he is.

He has all the tools. If he's actually 6-10 in shoes, I'd be shocked if he's not a 1st rounder

Yeah I live in Seattle, and

Yeah I live in Seattle, and I swear I haven't seen a guy score like that in college ever. I mean I think he's playing better than Isaiah Thomas and Pondexter are playing up at the UW. I'm not sure about being a 1st round lock, but I would say late 1st, early 2nd.

No no no, I'm sorry. I meant

No no no, I'm sorry. I meant in the Seattle area. I haven't seen anyone in Seattle score so easily as he does. I know Durant, Redick, Morrison, and all of them scored a lot more than he did, but I mean Garcia is at Seattle U. Not that big of a school, and yet he's making a name for himself. Kinda like Rodney Stuckey. Sorry for the misinterpretation

Charles Garcia (Los

Seattle 66  Utah Valley 63 

 Charles Garcia (Los Angeles, Calif.), the team leader in scoring and rebounding coming into the game, finished with two points and two rebounds in 15 minutes of action on the court. He sat on the bench for the final 11:42 of the game after committing a couple of defensive miscues that allowed Utah Valley to stay in the contest.

“I think (Garcia) is a better offensive player than Thompson is,” Braswell said. “I don’t expect him to play college basketball next year. He is a pro. No doubt about it.”

That quote above is a joke I hope.  Thompson is the 3rd leading scorer on the Kings.  You really think Garcia could be doing that in the NBA? cmon now 

I'm still not high on Charles Garcia or Paul George.  They both play against super weak competition.  They both play for teams that are absolutely terrible.   I don't see how either of them can be moving up draft boards.  You figure Fresno St. would be pretty good considering they supposedly have 3 nba prospects on the team right now...Sylvester Seay, Greg Smith, & Paul George.  That tells me they are overrated. If they were really that good that team would be winning a lot more games against the cupcakes they play.

I like Garcia. He has the talent that you like to see, but he's not better than Jason Thompson. Especially when you talk about their post games...He's like a Dominic McGuire, which means he's pretty good at every skill except shooting. I think he's going to be a bench player that provides versatility to a lineup and the occasional matchup problem.

Paul George seems like a player that can do everything Stephen Jackson does in the NBA. He's a good shooter and he can makes plays in transition. He does need to improve his handle though to create for himself, but he's got a good upside. At worst, he's a Brandon Rush type who shooting spot-up shots, gets transition baskets and plays good perimeter D. I think that's a pretty good worst case scenario to me...Seay and Greg Smith are just prospects because they have good size and are decent athletes. They'd get ate alive by NBA players though...

 Garcia & George have a ton

 Garcia & George have a ton of hype surrounding them. I've been keeping an eye on them.  I'm interested to see where they end up getting drafted. Personally I think Garcia & George should be moving down draft boards.
