Quick Toughts on Summerleague
Anthony Randolph will be a great player, he has star written al over him. ( looks stronger now also) 16ppg and 8rpg wont be a far reach for him
Blake Griffin will have his offense going in the nba, projection 16 ppg 9 repg 2.5 assist
Brandon J will be a great player in a year or two, he just needs experience, his quickness is an elite level.
Austin Daye Played better than Durants first summerleague, in fact he played better BKB than he did in College. ( if he can fill out a bit will be great)
Nick Young Appears as a SG starter now.
Summers and Jerebko Looks like draft steals
Blair is definitely a steal, crash the boards hard and will score some on NBA level
Budinger appears to have excellent shot selction (or a very good luck)
Derozan Looks More confortable on an NBA setting than he did in college, ( needs to work on his shot )
Curry appears a volume shooter( some bad shot selection), his FG% will be low this season
Harden is definetly a nba ready player and will fight for ROY
Thabeet .. Where is his supreme shotblocking? However he did alter many shots
McGee appears ready to contribute more minutes for the Wiz.
Mullens and Ibaka looks ready to play some garbage time
Special thanks to Rubio for playing hard in the at the wolves Point.
No love for Beaubois??????
thabeet doesn't look to fit into memphis' system yet.
But do you think the Wiz will start Young over Foye or Mike Miller?
I ( think ) it'l look like this for the wiz, I could be wrong.
miller(SF), stevensen(SG), young, Blatch, mcgee(however it's spelled). <--main bench
NO SPEIGHTS LOVE? or you only watch one summer lg... NO tyler H love? NO hibbert love?
Speights had one rellay good game, but looks a solid backup behind Brand. (smooth)
Hasborough plays hard, shoots well for a big and will help the Pacers bench alot (Red bull guy)
Roy Hibbert has developed good offensive moves, however he must work on his rebounding.
Maynor dindt shine because of lack of talent surrounding him, but he can have some minutes behind DW with a more talented and real NBA players.
Bebuois looks like a nice PG, ( fast, Atheltic and long) he needs experience but he can thrive with more talented teamates
Flynn looks better than lawson running the point, he just needs experience to turn down turnovers
Nick Young is going to be better than Foye. They should let him start, because Arenas and Foye would be an undersized backcourt. And Arenas, even though he isnt a true PG, is better than Randy Foye at that spot.
despite the fact that Nick young hasnt met a shot he doesnt like, he does not have the ability to create his own shot.. FOYE DOES... i do agree foye / arenas are worse back court than arenas / Young, but i think Foye has higher ceiling than Young. Foye has also been in crappy situation since entering lg..
Both Arenas and Foye are 6-4... The problem with that tandem is that their both combo guards, and neither are true PG's. However the starting backcourt shakes out for the Wiz though, as long as Arenas is healthy, it should be very good.
You think Randy Foye has a higher ceiling than Nick Young?
maybe miller at SG? he's done it plenty of times in his career. having arena's at PG and miller at SG would work...
arena's The backcourt will score like crazy.
Foye definitely has the higher ceiling, he's been paired up with terrible backcourt players in Minnesota, Telfair, McCants, come on, how is somebody supposed to excel in that sort of situation. I bet we'd be saying completely different things about Brandon Roy if the TWolves would have taken him over Foye.
also gives size in the backcourt. miller at 6'8 could either be a burden or a big help depending on the team.
Yea Mike Miller actually would be a better starter than Young or Foye.
Who said DeRozan wasn't ready to step in and contribute right away??
He may have a role, but it shouldnt be more than 10-15 minutes a game. He needs more tools offensively and to play more aware on D.
With some time could be Denver's future starting PG
Nick Young cant create his own shot? And Foye has a higher ceiling? That's crazy talk.....
Those are the opposite of the truth. But Ty Lawson pretty much reminds me of Anthony Carter, I wouldnt want him as my starter.
