still hating on Marcus Jordan?
since he's been starting the past 4 games, he's averaging 13 points, 3 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 1.6 assists, shooting 66%, and 63% from 3 point range, this is including the last game against Houston where he was 9-9, for 23 points, 4-5 from the line, 1-1 from 3, with 6 rebounds, this against aubrey coleman, who's starting to get a lot of love on this site. I know I'm going to get points off but I still think in 3 years he's going to be a player. His dad already said he was going to make him do the full 4 though. he's already a strong defender and good athlete. Work on his free throw shooting and he can be a pretty good player. He doesn't take many 3 pointers but when he does he makes them, he's a great mid range shooter. He has an awesome work ethic. None of those things can be denied. SO why doesn't anyone except me on this site give him love. Coach Speraw of Ucf said he needed someone to be aggresive and try to score the ball, and he gave marcus that green light and it's been working.
as an nba prospect he fit's into that combo guard range, which is hot in the league now. He's really strong, he has long arms, a good athlete. A lot of players have came in mind for a comparision, I thought of kerry kittles, deshawn stevenson, aaron mckie, but I think he will be a smaller Caron Butler in style of play.
Marcus Jordan could be a very good 2nd round pick.
When I saw him play- He reminded me of a Eric Snow type. He still has some things to learn. Maybe a 2011 prospect at the earliest
Dam E Snow Comparison... I know MJ Would hate to hear that lol
Great mid range jumper, must run in the family. he is playing good right now and if he can keep up the hot shooting he could get some attention later in his career.
Maybe he is like Gerald Henderson or maybe Gerald Wilkins son. Aint he like 6'4" now. He may grow to 6'5" and with his size and strength he would make a pretty good swingman off the bench in the league. Also if he inherited his father hard working genes, it would be hard to count him out.
What is up with lil Romeo and USC though. I was hoping to see him play more.
romeo was never really going to play for USC, he was just a mere drawing factor in getting DeMar DeRozan.
and I thought of Gerald Henderson, But Gerald Henderson, but I think he plays better d than gerald already, even though gerald was always even as a freshman way more offensively polished. He's only 6'3" 200 right now, but we all no his dad had a late growth spurt and Marcus body looks compactly built right now, like what he is now is his size.
prob because there are alot of players in college who are just like him. im not tryna put him down but each good teams has a marcus jordan, and why cant his work ethic be denied?..just because hes jordans son?..that doesnt mean he has the same work ethic. hes a different player then his father was just like the other jordan is and like most nba players sons are.
his work ethic can't be denied because he's a hard worker lol
i can say that about just about every college player then. none of us go to practice with him or work out with him so his work ethic is no more then college player A
I'd like to see Marcus Jordan getting that Russell Westbrook scenario... as we all know, Russ WAS NEVER in anyone's mock draft in his freshman year then suddenly rose to prominence in his sophomore year until he became the player that he is now... I hope for that to happen to Marcus
