Default Taurean Green

Who you think will take Taurean Green the point guard from Florida. He hasn't been getting that much hype like Jokim Noah, Al Hoford, and Corey Brewer. I think he's going to be a sleeper.

He went to the Blazers. I thought Philly was going to take him.

Kaponen?! Give me a break. The guy plays in some crappy league in Finland or that area. How could any team pick this guy in the first round? He has not proven he can play at a high competitive level and supposedly he has a difficult time getting into the lane. Try doing that in the NBA or in a top Euro league.

I don't consider him to be an excellent point guard in the future. After all, it ought to be easy to achieve over 6 assists per game if there' re 3 outstanding inside scorers in your team, which he failed.

I think you don't understand the dynamic of that Gator basketball team. While Taurean brought the ball up the court most of the time, it was ball movement that got the Gators many of their points. They didn't just disperse the scoring load, but the facilitating load.

Avg. Assists

Green 3.7
Brewer 3.0
Horford 2.2
Noah 2.2
Humphrey 1.2


The big guys were also excellent ball handlers so they put the ball on the floor a lot therefore reducing his assist numbers. He's obviously more of a scoring point guard and he's got a lot to prove if he's going to play in the NBA, but I don't think you can justifiably criticize him for not averaging more assists.

the kid is 19 and already doing well in Euro leagues. Young players over there are hardly ever given a role in europe because they are very high on seniority over there. he is smart and hardly ever turns the ball over (something young players hardly ever do either) plus he shot 47% from the field and 40% from 3. In my opinion he is and will be much better then Green ever will.

Smh..Did you see what he did with getting the ball to the Florida big men?

Now change out Horford and Noah for Oden and Aldridge

Umm...yeah...he's going to be good and a great fit for Portland

yet another steal of the draft for Portland
