Default Anybody else hate going into draft threads in the NBA forum?

I can't go into them. There's a thread right now in there where everyone is an expert on Tyler Hansbrough. Makes my head hurt.

Opinions posters have in the NBA forum...


-Tyler Hansbrough is a top 15 player

-Dionte Christmas is the steal of the draft, yet the people who think this think his name is "Dante"

-Hasheem Thabeet is a "bust" before he even declares for the draft

-Stephen Curry has been compared to every 6'2" combo guard in the NBA

-Ricky Rubio is either the next Steve Nash, or a "bust" purely because Europeans taken that high can't be good

-Tyreke Evans is apparently what every team needs

-Brandon Jennings is a bust! Look at his Euroleage stats!

-Brandon Jennings is the future! Look at his youtube handles!



add to the list...

-Blake Griffin will turn the Wizards into a contender
-Gerald Henderson will never make in the NBA cause he's from Duke
-20 year old James Harden is a career choker
-Jeff Teague will be as good as Dwyane Wade
-Willie Warren will be an elite scorer

I just read someone in the Hansbrough thread mention that Hansbrough doesn't deserve to be drafted until the late second round.

It's also amusing watching people discuss Blake Griffin.

I also want to call out myself for saying that Adrien could play SG/SF in the NBA. That was a terrible call by me. I do believe that can play SF/PF, he'll struggle against many of the bigger PF's and will also struggle against many of the quicker SF's.

My favorite was a post by Senor Cedric. Someone said Team "X" could use a player like Earl Clark. Ced says he's never heard of him, posts 10 minutes later saying "ok I just introduced myself to Clark. He kind of reminds me Al Thornton and Lamar Odom. He looks like he's going to be a stud".

I'm not going to lie.

I havent watched a Louisville game the entire season until they played Michigan State.

For some reason I hate them & Pitino so much I can't even get myself to watch.

From the Hansbrough thread:

Quote:
the 2nd coming of mark madsen go lakers! pick him up
Quote:
hansbrough will be a big bust
Quote:
Hans will never put up laetner numbers. i dont think he is capable for that.
Quote:
Hansbrough is going to need better perimeter game.I could see him being a decent defender, or becoming a ben wallace type player with a jumpshot. and a good FT%
Quote:
his game really doesn't impress me at all

where will he go? probably early 2nd

where should he go? really late 2nd.

I don't see him having a better career to even players like Shelden Williams.
[/quote]
Quote:
o those praising his scoring ability....

His style of play won't work a bit in the NBA. He uses his size and strength score points in college (and while getting calls like DWade).

There is a reason why this "hard working", "tough" college player is not a projected late lottery or mid first round pick.

Yes, someone actually said he could be Ben Wallace with a jumpshot.

Dude will be lucky if he even has the opportunity to guard Ben Wallace. Hansbrough will be lucky to find himself on a NBA roster. He might have a chance in the NBDL but NBA? Same I think will happen to the Wear brothers in a few years.

Don't be ridiculous. Tyler Hansbrough is already better than a lot of players playing in the NBA right now. On my own team, I'd take him over, Yi, Mo Ager, Sean Williams, and Najera. I may take him over Josh Boone too. The guy will have a Corliss Williamson like career if he never loses his work ethic.

That's going overboard. He'll be a rotation player somewhere.

Default Re: Anybody else hate going into draft threads in the NBA forum?

that is why i don't post in draft threads other than what type of player the team may need to pick up..

i don't watch any college ball other than a ucla game now and again or to catch a player everyone is talking about... i doubt there are more than a few posters here on ISH that watch enough college ball to disect every one of the top college players game and what type of team he'd hope to go to...
