he is playing great today, he has been doing a great job on the boards and playing defense. he does all the little things for a team to be successful.
do you guys think he has a chance of making it in the NBA? either getting drafted or getting a invite to a summer league and work his way onto a team?
No. He's not good enough at anything to play in the NBA. He MIGHT play overseas though.
He won't...But he WILL play overseas. Probably at a very high level.
lol i told ya'll..someone always asked about a guy being a nba player after each game. next one will probably be about andre dawkins this year if he has a good game or makes a real good move
oh yeah he will get a good 50k a year ...a starter for duke university... thats a given
He's a GREAT defender. He can actually defend every position, something that is very valuable and he plays within himself. He doesnt have the offensive game of an NBA player though. It would nice to be see it but i think it would be much more likely that he has a run in the D-League, much like fellow Dukie Defender Josh McClure or a career in Europe
Honestly, I ve never heard of the guy before to today. But, without him Duke would be on a flight back to Durham right now. Those offensive boards he grabbed saved their season. And that tip down was nasty. I am the no 1 Duke HATER but this kid is a plus defender and rebound, looked to be pretty good from the line,hes strong (benches 315),has a nasty streak, and most important he played for the one of the best coaches and most storied programs in all of basketball. See Chuck Hayes
i remember his scouting report in his senior year of high school said he was a 3/4 with good handles, could face up because of his great mid-range game, a good passer and was aggresive going to the rim. I never saw much of these things in him for the last 4 years
