Nolan Smith

Is it just me or does he look faster, stronger and more explosive than ever before? He has an extra gear attacking the basket and in transition, he plays smart... hes been putting up HUGE numbers...24.6, 5.5, and 5.9 with 2.1 steals over his last 8.

He plays at his own pace...He might be 1 of smartest players in the country...Most scouts say he's an overachiever..But Smith can get anywhere he wants to on the floor and he can score in a variety of ways...What will hurt his draft status is the fact some people say he doesnt have much upside...Another thing that hurts him is ,he isnt a true point guard..And he's too short to guard shooting guards...But he's smart and works hard and coaches love those type of guys...I see him going in the middle of the 2nd round...Becuz at the point guard spots he has Selby,Walker,McCamey,Knight and Joseph rated ahead of him..And at the shooting guard there are guys like Burks,Honeycut,Hamilton and Dunn ahead of him...

All true, but hes a

All true, but hes a serviceable passer, and he can fill it up in a hurry. Hes a 6th man type in the Bobby Jackson/Leandro Barbosa role. I would love to have him on my team. He like Toney Douglas, swapping offense for defense... He may play at his own pace, but hes definitely got athleticism. Not elite, but very good.

he been hoopin

Ever since kyrie went down with the injury nolan ahs really stepped it up and taken over the team. He really is a complete offensive player now. At times he tries to do too much but i thinks its all good for the better of the team. Kyle single was the player everyone was supposed to keep an eye on but nolan really looks like the player of the year so far to me.

Mid-Late first IMO. Too big

Mid-Late first IMO. Too big of numbers to discount. He's going to be a good combo guard who will be a able to decent job defending both backcourt positions similar to Delonte West.
