Draft Express been saying that Tyler Honeycutt is solid, but they don't understand why he seems to be playing so "soft" lately.
Eh follow my TWITTER!
Good news, very good news
My only beef with that Singleton guy is that he's already about 3 years OLDER then either of the Jones' and Barnes. He's a Junior at this point, and if he was anything special he would have been drafted already.
I saw a few mock drafts for 2011, one predicted the Raptors taking Honeycutt with the 11th pick , another had us picking Kyrie Irving at 8 and Kyle Singler out of the top 10. The link won't open for me so I can't see what you've included so...
Gotta love that they've got Cory Joseph going possible lottery, and Tristan Thompson Top 25, as well.
They've have been playing some solid ball for Texas and are repping Toronto with the best of em.
Once Myck Kabongo is ready, Colangelo NEEDS to do whatever it takes to acquire his rights.
Dude can save this team single handedly, being a top Prospect (this link has him as No.2 PG in the country, but most have him No.1) AND him being from Toronto.
does it matter? isnt the nba going into lockdown?
Underscores the importance of not trading for a SF; namely Iggy.
what happen to Kyrie Irving?
Well that site I listed above has him (Irving) going in 2012 actually. Which is interesting. He must be looking to play a second season at Duke? I say with Jose and Jarryd the PG position is a little further down the list of MUST FIX NOW problems, right now anyway.
A solid swingman in the draft is hard to find. Especially ones that contribute right away, but I think these three guys can all do some damage right away.
What do you guys think of the Brazilian C that they say is going to be picked by the heat #1 pick (28th overall) (which we own). He looks like he'd a great addition to this team but I don't like that they say he has a superstar attitude. Reminds of Ryan Leafs (NFL) ton of potential but his attitude made him the biggest bust in NFL history.
http://www.nbadraft.net/players/lucas-nogueiraNBA Comparison: Tyson Chandler
Strengths: Brazil's next big basketball hope after Nene and Leandro Barbosa ... One of the most promising International players of the next generation ... At just 18 years of age, shows a great deal of potential ... An athletic specimen ... Shows tremendous length and great balance ... Runs the floor like a deer, makes quick moves. Can change directions quickly. Very springy ... A big time shot blocker using his length and leaping ability to be an eraser around the basket ... Excellent on the break where he uses his tremendous fluidity and speed to convert dunks ... Shows some offensive ability with a solid shooting touch and ability to knock down free throws ... Tremendous rebounder. Shows good hands.
Weaknesses: The big knock against Lucas "Bebe" is that he is lazy ... Sources around the team claim that he is a little bit difficult to deal with and already has a star's attitude ... Nothing can derail a promising career faster than a kid not willing to put the work in, so for Lucas, keeping his head on straight, continuing to work hard and focusing on his development is crucial if he's going to realize his vast potential ... Must continue to develop his upper body and overall strength ... Still extremely skinny. 200 lbs. Must bulk up, but shows wiry strength and should be able to add weight successfully without diminishing his agility ... Needs to keep developing his offensive game, prove himself against a high level of competition ...
Notes: Nickname is "Bebe" which translates to "baby" ... Also known as Lucas Riva ... Full Name is Lucas Riva Amarante Nogueira... Plays for Estudiantes in Spain. Was 2 blocks away from recording a triple double in his first game in San Antonio playing for Brazil against Puerto Rico (20p/12r/8b) ... Has 3 years left on his deal with Estudiantes ...
How do you post videos? I want to get one up of that Perry Jones kid.. 6'11" with handles like a guard. We NEED him.
Am I the only one that thinks we should be grooming Demar as our future SF?
