I've never seen this guy play before. He's probably the only star player in college that I've never seen him play before. Looking at his stats, you could say he has a similar skill set to fellow draftee Evan Turner and you could make NBA comparisons to of Brandon Roy and Joe Johnson. Who would you compare him too and if you were to create like a ratings chart, how would you grade each category?
he did not look impressive at all against washington when i watched him. He got like 10 points and filled the stat sheet, but he is way too slow off the dribble to get too excited about him at the next level. He's similar to roy if roy played with ankle weights on.
Joe Johnson or B-Roy...Oh wow...Dude is a 2nd round pick and is nothing special. Nice passer, but moderate first step, below average defender and is older than most juniors. I'll pass on him.
He's not good enough at anything skill-set wise other than passing and he's not a great athlete. He didn't look very good against Washington either. If I had to make a comparison for him, it would be Mardy Collins. I don't think he'll be a good player in the NBA really.
i watch him and he's a little Like Evan Turner with better athleticism but worse ball handling skills
athelticism - 8
jump shot- 7

potential - 7,5
passing - 8
watched him once for a half and wasnt impressed but then again that was only one half of a game
during the tournament.
neither are a lot of players. thats when the real good ones play through the injuries.
Just sayin for the people who are judging him soley on his NCAA tournament. Who is injured right now that is impressing in the tournament? Just curious.
HROT makes a good point. James Harden looked bad in his two tournament games last year as well. But I don't think you could rate him off that performance.
wesley was still impressive. and im pretty sure there are a coupel of people with sprained ankles, hurt backs..theres one guy who i cant recall playing with a broken bone in his hand and still playing well..they were just talking about him on espn. im sure there are many many players playing with some type of injury. some reported some not
Isaiah Thomas from Washington had a broken bone in his hand Quincey. That's who your talking about. And yea he played pretty well in the tourny.
yeah thats who it is...i couldnt remember
is not injured anymore. He was awful is some games down the stretch.
hes not?..he says his hand is still in pain..tat would be injured. bascially i dont use injury as an excuse if a player is out there and playing and not hopping down the court on one leg. or dislocated shoulder....what exactly was his injury anyway?
His wrist. I am not saying I even like Hobson, but If the only game you saw of wes Johnson was his 5-20 clunker when his hand was at its worst your opinion of him would be a lot different.
i do agree that you cant judge a player off of one game. also agree that you shouldnt use excuses either
Injuries need to be taken into consideration.
yeah taken into consideration and talked about behind closed doors but not used as an excuse how often you see guys say " well i didnt play that well because i was injuried. if i wasnt then it would have been a different story"
What are you talking about? No one used that as an excuse. Just telling people he was injuried and they might or might not take that into consideration. You are the one who started about excuses, I was not even defending him, just stating facts.
