    Was hoping that S would have greater post skills to make up for shooting, so I'm going to go with T.

    T seems like the better choice. Defense can be taught by Casey if it needs that much improving

    Default Round 2 - Match 3

    The LOSER of Round 2 Match 2 is:

    Terrence Jones

    Terrence won the battle of the Jonas brothers in round 1 but couldn't develop enough post skills to get into the final four. Lost 9 to 1. Lesson: If your name is Terrence you will get destroyed in round 2!

    Round 2 - Match 3


    Would you rather have...


    ...........................Player U....................Player V
    Athleticism................9.5.................... .......7.5
    Build/Strength............9.5........................... 7.5
    Size..........................9................... ..........9
    Shooting....................7..................... .......6
    Ball Handling...............6.......................... ..6
    Quickness.................10...................... ......9
    Passing.....................6..................... ........6
    Rebounding...............8.5...................... .....8.5
    Post Skills..................7......................... ....7
    Defense....................8.5.................... .......9
    Intangibles.................7..................... ........7
    Leadership.................7...................... .......7
    NBA Readiness...........7.5........................... .8
    Potential...................10.................... ........8.5
    Basketball IQ..............7.............................8



    I averaged the numbers from a couple of draft sights to put together the report that you see. I threw around the idea of posting the player's position, but since I revealed who is in the Elite 8 I decided to try and make this as blind as possible and keep the position a "mystery". You might be able to guess based on their attributes. In this round I will only reveal who lost the match, and will only reveal the final 4 once round 2 is complete.

    I feel like I know who both of them are, but even by the stats U destroys him.

    Default Final Match of Round 2

    The LOSER of Round 2 Match 3 is:

    John Henson

    Henson beat out Sully in round 1, but didn't have enough basketball IQ to stay away from this match. Lost 11 to 1. Lesson: The republic likes potential.

    Round 2 - Match 3

    If this is a PG comparison, then Player W for me. W has higher ratings in Passing, Defense, Intangibles, Leadership and BBIQ, with lower-but-still-good ratings in Ball Handling, NBA Readiness and Potential.

    If this is a SG comparison, then Player X for me. X has sick ratings in Athleticism, Quickness, Ball Handling and Shooting, with good ratings for Intangibles, NBA Readiness, Potential and BBIQ.

    My assumption is PG, so I go Player W.

    X

    As Bayless has proven, passing can be learned. Athleticism, quickness and potential cannot.

    My reasons are a lot like CalgaryRapsFan. I like W as a PG, I like X as a SG. It's a real toss-up, definitely the toughest for me this round. Okay, I think it's X, and hope that Casey can teach him to play D.
