    Default Chicago combine 2013

    This has been going on for a few days now.
    Couldn't find a place to post about it.

    Here's a link to the released measurements so far:

    Pretty interesting stuff.

    Also NBA.com has some interviews up:

    Thoughts? Comments?
    Other than Gobert measuring well (and apparently blocking everything) I haven't heard much.
    Olynyk, and Burke measured well too.

    Meanwhile, Shabazz is taking some hits.

    Noooo. Olynyk didn't measure well at all. He's 7'0" but his wingspan is only 6'9". It's already causing some concern.

    Here's a link to winners/losers of Measurement Day:

    Cool thread idea though.

    Olynyk had one of the worst verticals also.

    24.5" standing vert.
    29.5" max vert.
    3.59 sec sprint.
    11.42 lane agility

    Kabongo had the worst result in 3 point shooting, just 5 of 25. Tim Hardaway Jr. made 19 of 25.

    Anthony Bennett is not in Chicago recovering from shoulder surgery.

    More on Kabongo from bleacher report:

    Ed Zurga/Getty Images


    Myck Kabongo didn't do himself any favors during the drilling portion of the combine.

    He shot just 5-of-25 during three-point drills with many decision makers watching. It wasn't a good look considering he shot just 31.6 percent from three as a freshman and 29.6 percent as a sophomore.

    And for what it's worth, he got crossed over and burned by Nate Wolters during a one-on-one drill.

    Kabongo also only registered a 33.5" max vertical as a 6'2.75'' guard. To put that into perspective, Isaiah Canaan, a 6'0'' guard, reached 40 inches, as did six other guards Kabongo will be competing with.

    Nobody's going to downgrade Kabongo because of his athletic testing. But not standing out while others do could ultimately have the same effect.

    If Myck slips to the second round perhaps a deal could be swung to make him a Raptor.

    We better get Ujiri fast. He needs to spin a deal to nab us Kabongo
