What if the Thunder get the #1 pick, will they select Wall? No, so unless you're Nostradamus, you have no clue what you are talking about.

Wall also refuted speculation that he might test the NBA collective bargaining agreement and enter the 2009 draft as a 19-year-old fifth-year high school student.

"No, not at all," Wall said when asked if he were considering entering this year's draft. "I'm going to school for one or two years and trying to win a national championship. I promised my mom I'd go to college and that if I left early I'd come back and graduate."

In the end it doesn't matter as long as NY gets Jennings or Rubio.

Anybody else think Wall is not ready for the NBA?

I think he has a lot of potential...but so did gerald green (obviously diff type player). I just think Wall looks really raw right now. He definitely has size and athleticism at PG though.

All Gerald Green ever showed was the ability to jump really high and shoot 3s.

I think there's a pretty huge difference between that and what we saw from Wall in that mix. (Of course it's only a mix.) Yeah he dunks incredibly easily at 6'4, but what we mainly see is ballhandling, passing, fluency and instinct. Plus what seems like preternatural help-defensive instincts a la Kirilenko (I realize a guy that athletic playing against boys is going to block a lot of shots but he's practically blocking those shots with his chin.) None of which we ever saw from a Gerald Green or a JR Smith. (Not that either player is bad, in fact I have this secret suspicion both players will continue to improve for at least a few more years and both stay in the league for a good while).

I've only started hearing his name ring like 2 months ago unlike a Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo where I heard about them for a longer period of time and was able to actually watch games and not just highlight reels that alot of talented high school going to big div 1 schools have.

So whats your take on him? How does he compare to say a Derrick Rose in HS and could he duplicate or better Rose as a rookie (if he were to go to school and bounce)? What I've read up on him is he relies far too much on his athletic ability to get him by (so did Rose) but while he makes the crowd pleasing dish what isnt shown or spoken of is the horrible decision making he displays. He tries moves, passes that have little to no chance of being executed.

Other than that? Eh. I've seen some high school games this year but he didnt feature in any. So I guess the only time I'll see him actually play a full game is if a video is online or he goes to college.
