    6'10 is a PERFECT size for a PF in the NBA. Randle is 6'9. Does 1 inch really make a difference? specially for a player as talented as Randle? i would say no.

    I'll tell you something, Aaron Gordon is an absolute thing of beauty and he's getting no attention. He's lighting up SDSU so far tonight. Three's, and-1's... he'll give you everything.

    I like Dario Saric looks like he might fall out the lottery.
    He might, but if he does it'll be because he's very unique. Not a lot of teams can easily accomodate a power forward who plays like a point guard (a very, very good point guard).

    Others share your opinion:

    That, however, didn’t make his effort less dazzling. Gordon put on a performance that rivaled those orchestrated by the other future millionaires who were featured on Tuesday night at the United Center.

    He’s not a power forward and he’s not a point guard. But he is a combo forward who can be trusted to handle the ball and roam on the perimeter in Arizona’s offense. He’s an excellent passer. He’s also a versatile defender.

    Gordon’s athleticism helps him guard multiple positions and smaller players. His movements are fluid.

    With less than six minutes to go, SDSU forward JJ O’Brien drove to the rim as Gordon harassed him. Gordon had played cautiously after picking up his third foul, but he tracked O’Brien, and then, he swatted a shot that would have extended a brief SDSU rally.

    He finished with 16 points, 8 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks, 2 assists and zero questions about his potential.
    Gordon will play multiple games this season that will commence after a chunk of the country has already fallen asleep. And perhaps that will affect his street cred when folks assess the 2013 class.

    It’s clear, however, that Gordon belongs in the same conversation as the other three freshman stars who excelled earlier this week in Chicago.

    If he doesn't have a long wingspan, it makes a world of difference. But again, I have no idea what his wingspan is.

    I didn't say he's going to be a bad player or anything. Just that IF he IS undersized, (6'9 with average wingspan) that he won't dominate in the NBA like people are expecting. But obviously he still has time to grow, and he could have a long wingspan for all i know

    He has a 6'11 wingspan.

    He also looks like he is 30.

    lol well in that case he's basically average size for a PF anyway, shouldn't have any problems.

    Yeah, I thought he was too old to be in college

    Parker vs Wiggins. Wiggins with nice D on this possession. Bumps Parker off his spot (Parker loses about 2 feet from his original post-up), then gets a tip on the ball for a block. 6'8" blocking a 6'8" fade-away. We haven't given Wiggins enough credit for his D.

    A nice Marcus Smart pic of his 9 steals in the last game. All from different spots/situations.

    Only problem is that until the Chicago combines, you can't tell for sure how tall anyone is. 6' 9" becomes 6" 7.5" without shoes and so on.

    That [Parker] kid is amazing," Durant said. "I think he is the best player in the country. Him and Wiggins are like '1A' and '1B.' Those guys are going to do the one-and-done thing, do it early. They are going to do really well in college and lead their teams to, I think, the Final Four. That's kind of like, 'Close your eyes and pick one.' You're good with either one of those guys.

    "I love Jabari's game. He's so skilled. He has it all right now. Wiggins is on another level with God-given ability. You look at him, you can tell he's going to be really big and fill out a lot. He's really athletic."

    Now imagine having one of those two players, JV, another top pick in 2015, enough cap space to go after another top free agent in '15, and Drake egging him to Toronto in '16 during all-star weekend after his relationship with Westbrook finally blows up and he tires of owners refusing to spend in to the luxury tax.

    I freakin love this kid's D. I keep wondering if he's the best defensive guard prospect since Payton. He's big, relentless, can guard both guard spots, seems to have a knack for getting his hands on the ball...Want him pretty badly.

    Biyombo has zero offensive game and even his defense is average, he just has long arms so he can block shots. I remember someone here saying that Biyombo is the next Ben Wallace and that he will be better than JV hahaha
