which PF prospect will have the best career?
List in order from best to worst:
i believed that Patt could be as good as something like David West but now he slows down alot while Wall and Cousins playing well..
IDK it's two hard when 3of4 is "potential" guys (OK,at least 2)
1.Greg Monroe- almost allstar stats with perfect assist numbers which makes him true star.
2.Derrick Favors- more and more i feel he won't be Amare(but he has potential to be)but he could be 17/10/2 i think
3.Patterson-solid starter maybe even close to Favors' numbers, but still the world of potential makes Derrick higher in my list
4.Ed-IDK i don't see big time big-man in him.
I think all depends on the team that draft them. I look for greg monroe to be a great pro though!
patterson seems to be content with not taking over as long as the team wins which is good
My best to worst with their career numbers
points, rebounds, assists, blocks
1A. Davis- 17, 11, 2, 3 (At best Amare at worse Stromile Swift)
1B. Favors- 15, 11, 2, 2 (At best Josh Smith at worse Bigger Tyrus Thomas)
2. Monroe- 12, 7, 3, 1 (At best Old C-Webb at worse Bigger Diaw)
3. Patterson- 9, 6, 1, 1 (At best Milsap at worse Brandon Bass)
I think Cousins will be the best PF if he plays there in the NBA tho.
id say favors worst stromile swift best not too sure. not comparable to thomas nor josh since he's not on there level athletically. patetrson is a wayyy better shooter then milsap and bass. also not really comparable
1.) Greg Monroe: He's the only player on this list I see being an All-Star. He has all the skills in the world for a big man, and the size.
2.) Patrick Patterson: I think he can be a solid 3rd or 4th option in the NBA. The David West comparison is valid.
3.) Derrick Favors- Chris Wilcox at best, he has the same strength and athletic ability as Wilcox, and I don't think he'll ever be that polished offensively yet I do see him having some seasons were he gets 15 ppg or so, like Wilcox at his best. At worst he has a Tyrus Thomas type career where he gets about 10 ppg 7 boards and 2 blocks.
4.) Ed Davis: I think he gets about 7 ppg and 5 rebs. Let the records show, I've never been high on Ed Davis. He reminds me of Brandan Wright, which is up to you to decide how you take that. Some think Wright would be good with more PT by looking at his "per" and 48 minute averages, but I think he's going to be too weak and his lack of true post game will be exposed.
actually i think i do kinda agree with the wilcox thing. i was thinking of wilcox back when he was in college and jumping out the gym not the one now who still dunks but isnt as explosive
How can everybody say Davis will be the worst of them all do you watch the games? Just look at the numbers and he is suppose to be the worst offensive player of them all. Dont forget he is the second youngest so he has almost the most upside of them all.
Patterson- The oldest of the bunch with the lowest upside and smallest player 15pts, 7.5reb, 1assist, 1blk 59% fg 32 mins
Monroe- Most skill with ok upside 15.5pts, 9.6reb, 3.2assist, 1.7blk 50% fg in 34 mins
Favors- Most upside lowest production 11.5pts, 8.5reb, 1assist, 2blks 59% fg in 26.1 mins
Ed Davis- Arguably the most upside with some of the best production 14pts, 9.8reb, 1assist, 2.6blks 58% fg in 27.9 mins
I feel Monroe is the most skilled but the lack of a big body and athletic ability will limit his growth where he will always be good but will not dominate and Patterson will be a hustle player that will give his all every second on the floor
too fan fans put wayyy to much on athletic ability when more bust have been the athletic guys that people praisedso much in hs and college. skills are much more important. being a good athlete is just icing on the cake
16.4 PPG 10.1 RPG in.................... 21.3 MPG...EASY
any smart basketball fanknows you cant just go by ncaa stats. if so then tyler hansborough would have been the best prospect easy
What about Cousins
Cousins is a C
he is like an underdeveloped Magic Johnson but bigger
I wonder how his game translates
if he goes to a bad team that needs low post scoring
he is a passer not a scorer
monroe doesnt need to score alot. at his peak i see him scoring just as well as lamarcus aldrige. also if he isnt a scorer with the numbers he puts up then neither is a couple of players including wesley johnson. i dont recall jeff green scoring much in college either and he's turning out to be a pretty good scorer. matter of fact that gtown system isnt for one person to score alot of points
