Default Brandon Knight-2011 NBA Draft Pick

How does he project to the NBA?

Hes following in line after Rose, Evans, & Wall.

Everything I've read up about him suggests hes more of an undersized SG than he is a NBA PG.

Underrated because he isn't flashy and isn't a freak athlete for a pg. He is a jumpshot like Ray Allen. He is projected right now as the 5th pick. Since he will be at UK, he will be overrated, and I can see him potentially being #1 pick if he has a good year and leads UK far into the tournament. Though Harrison Barnes and Perry Jones seem to have a higher NBA ceiling

I think Selby is a better overall player than Knight, I'd probably put Kyrie Irving over Knight as well.

I saw some of Knight's games and as highly as hes touted you would think it would be a "wow" factor with him. You are probably right that he will be underrated for not being flashy or a great athlete. He seems like a good player to me, good not great.

Do you think he is 1 & Done quality? He had a 4.3 GPA and said he wanted to spend 2 years at Kentucky.

Out of 2011 freshmen, I only think Barnes, Selby, Perry Jones, and possibly Jared Sullinger should be 1 & dones. But there will be more.

Don't forget Enes Kanter and Kyrie Irving.


I think Patric Young and Terrence Jones might be too.

Never watched any of them or don't remember them cept Irving. And Duke players don't do one and done. It just doesn't happen.

Watched him play up close and personal on a handful of occasions.

The kid is a PROBLEM. Will be a top 3 pick in the 2011 drat.

Late lottery pick. Probably will be the third PG drafted.

He's a point guard who Callipari wanted, he'll be a star.

I don't think knight is on the level or rose/tyreke/wall at all- and sullinger is not someone that should be thought of as a high nba draft pick yet- you can't be bigger or stronger than guys in the nba at his size and he isn't a great athlete- might be a very good college player though

The only reason, and it is a big 'un when talking about the NBA, Knight isn't on Rose or Wall's level is because he isn't a freak athlete.
