As the draft gets closer and closer, we will most likely have the seventh pick in this years draft wich is one of the weakest in years. The only players that standout are Harden, Griffin, and Rubio. But the most talken about on this site is Brandon Jennings.
Jennings- He is extremely athletic and works well in running offenses. We saw in the all american game how well of a passer he is and his crazy dunks so there is no doubt this kid has alot of talent nut when you look how he has done in europe, it does not look good. He is playing against stronger guys the likes of which he will play in the NBA and cant seem to shake them none the less get a body on someone. Turnover prone and is a bad three point shooter. But the game is alot slower over in europe so maybe playing in the U.S. is just what he needs. He has not had a good turnover to assist ratio and is a really bad rebounder. I think at best he can be like Crwaford and at worst a Telfair.
The man who led his team to a national title and boosted his stock in the process but how much?
Lawson- The fastest man in college basketball is a true pint guard who ius also somewhat of a sharpshooter. Great playmaking ability and is very consistent. Decent defender and shows good effort on the boards, but his small size limits him on how effective he is down low. He is a system point guard as far as we know and he had the luxury of having Tyler Hansbrough for three years. Top five passer in college hands down and was a stealing machine. He does have short arms and needs to learn to play at differnt speeds at the next level.Recent point guards who have came out of UNC (Felton) have not been as good as people thought he was going to be so this could affect his stock somewhat. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/player/profile?playerId=31608
Note: The Warriors were one of a coople teams including Miami and Toronto who visited him over in europe to scout him. http://www.boston.com/sports/basketball/articles/2009/04/26/point_guard_is_a_big_leaper/?page=full
