Default Bill Walker?

I remember seeing him projected to be even a lottery pick last year before the injury. Now, I don't see hi name anywhere....

What's up with Bill Walker?

He is still a freak athlete, but he has a tendency to disappear in games. This could be the result of the horrid offense being run at KState. His jumper is coming along. Has a great deal of defensive potential. He loses control on drives too much for my liking.

Bill Walker suffered a injury that he is using this season to recover from. He is too inconsistent. Athletic player who relies on his athletic ability more than his actual skill.

He's projected as a late first-round pick in '09. I can't imagine that he'll declare for the '08 draft.

I havent seen him projected in this upcoming draft. I dont know why he would unless he gets word his athletic ability/size will get him a first round spot. Definately not lottery bound. I can see late first (25 and below). But the potential for him falling to the 2nd round is there imo. So he should stay.

Really needs to work on his game more. And stop dissappearing. Guy is so hit and miss its ridiculous and annoying. He should have gone to a school with a PG who could get him the ball and make him look better than advertised.

Right now he's just an athletic power forward at 6-6. He has good hands, athleticism, and instincts, but nothing that translates terribly well to overcome his lack of size for his position. He's not that good of a rebounder, he lacks intensity, and his defense is a total mental collapse. He has a lot of talent to be a good small forward if he works on his handles and gets a jumpshot, but till then he's just your Marcus Fizer type.

EDIT: Thinking about it more, he's pretty much is a less polished version of Ryan Gomes.

Because he went to Kansas State before Mayo committed to USC.

I dunno about where he's gonna be drafted, but he, along with Beasley, are some funny dudes.

Taking a piss in the middle of the game.

They said the same things about Beasley being inconsistent and a head case back when he was in high school, but he seems like a kid that just trying to have fun. Not sure if thats the same with Walker.

Two things.

1. Beasley was a head case in high school. That's a big part of why he went to so many. I don't think he's necessarily a bad kid, I just don't know if he'll ever really grow up. I'm not sure that staying out of trouble long enough to solidify his NBA stock for one college season proves anything, considering how large of a support staff he likely had in college to keep him from hurting himself.

2. Bill Walker is no Michael Beasley.

Why would Bill Walker pee in the middle of the game in front of everyone? Why can't he just quickly go to the locker room and handle his business?

The same reason I piss while showering when the toilet is three feet to my left? Or when I'm outside smoking a cigarette (which I only do while drinking) when I could easily walk inside?

When you gotta go, you gotta go.

Everyone knows Beasley is immature, Walker seems to take it to another level. I agree with everything else in the thread.

The question I have is: is Mayo like this too? I know Mayo has an ego and whatever else, but is he this immature as well? They seem like they would have fun together, but them and their posse, with millions of dollars? I think they may have too much fun. I think this would kind of raise a red flag for some teams. I don't know of any reports of drug use like you have with Qyntel Woods a few years ago, but I would imagine these guys like to party a big together.
