Default 2006 Official NBA Draft Athleticism Tests

The results are in...

http://nbadraft.net/2006campmeasurements002.asp#

My thoughts:

Who the heck is David Noel?
Ronnie Brewer impressed.
Aldridge was disappointing.
Who said Roy is only an average athlete? Mad hops.

How much stock can we put in these tests? After all, they say nothing about basketball IQ, skill, or feel for the game.

Yeah mordacai, I be ladhamercy. I just wanted to post it on both forums for those who only frequent one of them.

After watching that video...I think the Raps should grab James White in the second round. Yep. That was easily the best foul-line dunk ever. Check that, the best two foul-line dunks ever.

Also, Elgrace Wilborn threw down one of the best dunks of all time. That two-handed windmill was nasty!

So does David Noel have a shot in the NBA or is he just an athlete?

on his espn profile

Quote:
Defensive specialist ... Sees minutes as a role player ... Can defend off guards, small forwards, power forwards and even some centers ... Understands his role and plays within his limitations ... Will only take high percentage shots, garbage baskets and such ... Excellent rebounder ... Limits turnovers ... Durham native averaged 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three steals as a high school senior ... Considered football scholarship offers to play wide receiver, (including by UNC), but decided to walk on the UNC basketball team ... Scored 19 touchdowns as a senior.


however he was playing 33 minutes per game for the tar heels, seems quite a lot for a "role player" he seems to shoot the ball well aswell



also in the video, did you see maurice agers 1st dunk was pretty cool, but rodney carneys dunks are the best especially considering hes 6-5
