Default JJ Redick for 8th pick

Redick

well i know you guys would say why waste an 8th pick if you just pick redick but JJ is the best and most available player that can contribute in a NBA level. The kid is just awesome he plays (ACC) the toughness division in NCCA, most awarded player too (wooden & augustas), one of the Two players got invited to try out for the US nationals team.. well they are a lot of doubters about his game have you see how his offensive game was, the kid is just not a pure shooter but a Scorer as well here a mix of him

http://rapidshare.de/files/15944058/redick_mix.wmv.html

http://files.filefront.com/tghatedwm.../fileinfo.html

and you could see that in the mix most of the guys chasing him is 6'6 or 6'7 mosty of them are athletic and still JJ burn them. and he use wide array of fakes and nasty fall away. plus they say his defense is liability i dont think JVG would assigned him to guard top opposing scorers he's not the dumb. and wen some defender come he take a few driblle and pass to his open teamates easily like (shelden, josh, dock), so you could say he is an average good passer (Like alston). so can we say he is a good pick up for us, for sure teams will be hesistant to double Tmac and Yao coz they know JJ is waiting in the wings and ready to flys bombs. and even some of his draft Class (foye) admires how good he was in the last following Pre draft workouts http://draftexpress.com/viewarticle.php?a=1336 (Read Foye interview) he mention JJ redick was one of the most impressive out there..

so if JJ is availble at 8th the rockets should take him. coz someday i dont want us too regret passing him by like the (Rashard lewis) thing we we drafted Eddie Griffin instead of him look at Rashard carreer (NOW)..

I think JJ Redick would be perfect to Houston's offence. Playing at guard, he could complement TMac and Yao as the third slot scorer, unlike alston, JJ can shoot the ball very well.

JJ doesn't have point guard skills YET.. he might develop them but as of right now he doesn't.

If the Rockets draft JJ IMO they need a big point who can gaurd both gaurd spots.

The way the 76ers use to run Eric Snow and AI.

Defense will always be the primary concern if we draft JJ. Actual productivity aside, JVG just will not use the guy if he defend guys playing his position. And playing the way he has for so long makes me question whether he can develop a PG mentality, even if he has/can develop the skills needed.

I'd go with Carney.

jj's recent dui could hurt his chances of being drafted by the rockets.

Yeah, was just wondering what he can become.

Hopefully a Kirk Hinrick type player?

Never ever ever should we consider taking Redick with the #8 pick. Not even for a second.

He did measure out slightly taller than expected (6' 4.75" in shoes) but he's still well below average athletically for an NBA SG. He'd struggle to guard PG's as well, due to differences in quickness. There's really no way to mask his defensive shortcomings in the NBA, which is why I don't think he'll ever be anything more than a shooting specialist, at least against most teams' backcourts.

i agree. i think he'll be at best a more athletic (just slightly) version of kyle korver. but who knows i could be wrong. i wouldnt take him with the 8th pick.
