Kendall Marshall just broke the All-Time Assist record for a single season, in the ACC.
Very big Deal.
Kendall Marshall now stands alone.
The 6-foot-4 sophomore point guard set the Atlantic Coast Conference’s the single-season assist record with his pass to forward Harrison Barnes with 15:31 remaining in the first half. Marshall passes former Georgia Tech guard Craig Neal, who had held the record since the 1987-88 season.
Marshall has compiled 534 assists in less than two seasons as the starter for North Carolina and is certainly in range of the national career record set by former Duke guard Bobby Hurley. Hurley dished out 1,076 assists in four seasons with the Blue Devils.
If Marshall decides to stay all four years, that record could be in danger as well.
Here's hoping he doesn't stay all 4 years at UNC!

if we get #1 do you think casey will try to put andrea back at at the 3? with rebounding blocking machines behind him could it work?
I think in this case, either Amir or Ed need to be shipped. If Davis is really proves to be that good, maybe trade Bargnani if that will give us the best return. If it gives us a solid piece on the wing, I think it might be worth it. I think Bargs is awesome, it's just maximizing your cap and roster.

Of the 3 bigs I'd say Davis has the best chance of being effective at the 3.
That said, Davis is gonna be really raw offensively, it'd be better to just have him off the bench. That'd be a pretty wild frontcourt.

PJ3 had another impressive game tonight. Once again able to score from every where on the court. Two thing that impressed me the most were. His patience he was getting doubled all game. He was able to stay poised and pass out of them. He didn't have one turnover, even with all the double teams. Second was his defense toniht. He gave T-Rob(national player of the year nominee) a hard time, by moving his feet and using his lenght. Seem like a real good man to man defender when he puts his mind to it. What I also notice is how bad of a help side defender he is. So many play where he could use that length and athleticism block or alter the opppnents shot but just didnt. Remind you of anyone.

Bradley just plays such a smart game. Always makes the right play. Takes good shot and always passes up a good shot for a great one. His shot was not falling this game, but he didn't just settle for it. Kept mixing up his game from drive and shot. They also mentioned a interesting state. He has had 6 games with 10+ rebounds this season. That's pretty damn good for 6'4" 1/2
The lottery is really all about determining the top 3 picks. After the top 3 are selected choices are based on the remaining teams season record. I'd be very happy with pick 2 or 3 - it would certainly make the decisions that follow much easier.
If I were to put it in order of want, of course it does not mean I would take the first two if we were picking 3rd (and Davis would only be if we landed #1)
Of course as others have posted, if Utah somehow takes our pick for their 2 to get someone they really want, I would be Lillard and Beal hands down.
Land # 1 first, then worry about where to put him next.

With the Raptors having Valaciunas as the C of the future and Bargnani being a legit allstar PF this year (assuming his games played are a true reflection of a 'new and improved' Bargnani), I would seriously consider trading the #1 overall pick, if the lottery balls bounce our way.
I would look to trade it for another top 5-10 lottery pick (to pick Barnes, MKG or Beal), as well as at least 1 other solid asset (ideally a proven starter or at least a younger rotation player with very high potential). If I had more time I would check out the bottom 5-10 teams and look for players on their rosters who are under contract next season, that I would target if this scenario were to come up. With all the hype surrounding Davis right now, I think there would be a good bidding war for the pick, meaning the Raptors could likely get a really good player in addition to a lottery pick to draft whichever wing they covet most.
Adding a healthy Bargnani, Valanciunas, a wing from the draft and another top-7 (at least) rotation player to this lineup would make for a very solid team next season and beyond (and that's without making any other moves, but obviously the Barbosa, Bayless and Davis/Amir situations would need to be figured out).
Lillard is a guy I like as well, followed by Marshall..
If we win number the #1 pick I'm all for Anthony Davis AND keeping him, he could be a superstar in this league with the right development. Unless there is a problem with Davis coming off the bench for a bit, keep them both, but I really believe that we need Best player available combined with needs. We need a wing player that can contribute right away like the four I stated above, and a point guard.
anthony davis is a pipe dream now.
If we were to get the #1 pick they could start Val and and Davis to have the best young front court in the league with potential to become better and more dominant than Bynum and Gasol. Who could you say is better? Griffin and Jordan maybe? If that scenario played out I wouldn't hesitate to move Bargnani for a scoring wing. With Calderon running the show for a couple more years the team would be set.
