I don't know if Alexander will ever be a star, but he is going to play in the NBA for a long time. It is kind of sad that a guy can work this hard on his game, and still only be an NBA role player, while other guys can be 20 point scorers in the NBA using natural ability and some training.

He and Hansbrough would not even be Division II stars if it wasn't for their hard work. That is what makes me think that no matter what they will find a spot and last their entire careers in the NBA. They may not always be starters or All-Stars, but they will provide whatever their team needs year in and year out.

It figures that Joe is a kid who did a lot of solo practice. He's a weak passer and doesn't protect the ball well on drives.

With his excellent one on one and in-between game if he learns to take better care of the ball he can be a top7 rotation player for his entire career.

Reminds me of Kevin Durant, only difference is Durant is a lot longer and has even more skills.
