Yeah, he need to slow down a bit sometimes and improve decision making. I hope he will get it with experience as he gets older. Now, he's just a very athletic player with lots of offensive potential.

I think discussing the strength of a draft prior to any of these guys playing a single NBA game is senseless. I mean, I understand that people like to use their own evaluations to project how players will turn out on the next level, but no one really knows if this is a strong draft, a weak draft or a mediocre draft.

We can check back in a few years from now and then have a real idea about the strength of this draft. I agree with you... There is a lot of potential in this draft, especially at the top.

There seems to be a few really nice international prospects in Valanciunas, Kanter, Vesely, Biyombo and Motiejunas. All of those guys may be gone within the Top 10.

Stalking? Reread the definition.

My issue is that it's easy to dismiss someone and say they have no idea what they're talking about and then come in a few months later and repeat the same exact thing I said and pretend your moronic earlier remarks were never said.

Pretty much what it comes down to is that you're a hypocrite and you were wrong, I was right. As usual.

I cannot believe you people are getting hyped over an under 18 Euro comp!

Who else is sick and tired of all these Euro's being hyped to be the next big thing?

The are only 2 players that have panned out in recent years to become superstars and thats Dirk and Pau Gasol (no Marc is not a superstar, and does not have the talent to become one).

The 2 Italians (Barganni and Gallinari) at best will be borderline allstars, but have yet done jack sh!t with the opportunities given to them....be interested to see how long the Raptors will keep packaging Barganni as its 'franchise' player

The vast majority of Euro's get exposed in the NBA, and most become average at best!

Wait are you actually implying that guys like Bargnani, Galinari, and Valanciunas are among the best European players.......................



Yeah, they are nothing more than an average European players. News flash genius, the NBA likes to draft players based solely on hype and nothing more. Hype they create themselves.

Just like how Rubio is an awful Euroleague player.

9 out of 10 of the best European players are never drafted genius.

Seriously, Bargnani and Galinari? You have got to be kidding me. They would just be average players in the Euroleague.

How old are you? Really?! Can no-one have a differing opinion to you? You have shown to have a great knowledge of a solid young prospect, and that's great, but why is madmax not allowed to give his take on a prospect?

Yeah, I know I've only got a handful of posts, but that doesn't mean I don't lurk hear all the ****ing time. You are a **** to most people on this forum, and something needs to be said about it.

Go **** yourself, you ****ing child.

Well he's pretty well versed in NBA, college, high school, 12 & under, semi pro and any international league outside of America. I remember he talked about a guy in Philly who played at a local rec league and broke down his game. Amazing to say the least. Somewhere a 6yr old is getting yelled at by mum for making a ton of noise on his nerf set. But Grinder has the scouting report on the kid.
