i think that, cause his mid range jumpshot is the best in europe right now, and he's young and he can develop his 3pt range shot in another 1-2 years (while he remains in europe) so if a team draft him earlier then the others ( i think the nets could draft him with the 27th pick) will bw very pleased by his qualities...

No

I don't think he's the next Dirk Nowitzki. However, I do think that he's a great value pick (especially if he falls to the late-first round). His shooting ability is off the charts for a player his size. Watch a smart team like the Celtics or Spurs draft him and bring him over in a year or two. He'll be a freakishly productive player off the bench and have all the bad teams questioning why he wasn't considered in the lottery.

I like your avatar by the way.

I agree with NoMoney to an

I agree with NoMoney to an extent. I think theres no way he slips past New Jersey, although you dont have to be an elite franchise to select this kid. He is an exceptional talent who prides himself on his abillity to score so their will always be room for him in this league. Put him on a team with talent and he will produce.

Btw Im not mad at you for comparing him to Dirk, even though that is a far stretch. Alot of people in Europe think he is better then Vesely.

he's much much much better then vesely... but vesely is more and nba-type player then mirotic

mirotic is a scorer,reounder and high IQ big man (serbia docet) vesely an athlete and a terrific dunker and shot blocker

they're too much different to compare but I think they can play beatifully together

I never said a great team has to select him for him to be successful. I can just see a lot of teams passing on him and one of the teams that actually did their scouting homework reaping the benefits.

Vesely does have more of an NBA game than Mirotic, but I think they'll both be great role players.

Delcious baffles with extra syrup!

Yeah, but no-- I mean, I agree. That number is a bit concerning...

I hate myself.

Nobody made me one either...

I think McMachop is in charge of the party-planning. We should take away his points until he pays us our due...

If McJigglypuff finds out we are negging him he will have a fit, might throw a temper tantrum and completely topple the whole forum. You have to think of the innocent pedestrians in that case.

An

An avatar? Sure.

  • Click on your screenname.
  • Click on the "Edit" tab.
  • Scroll down to Upload picture.
  • Choose a picture.

You might have to wait a day or so for it to show up. It's really annoying, but that's the way the system works.

That's true. After putting up with months of abuse from DanEboy, McMankey could be on the verge of a psychological breakdown... We'd better just let him be.

The Real Question Here is...

Is ItalyScout the next sad little mind call some big deep-shooting European stiff the next Dirk Nowitzki?

Yes, yes he is.

He also might want to expand his list of nations scouted to Germany so at least he knows how to spell N-o-w-i-t-z-k-i.
