Default joey dorsey

i do not understand how joey dorsey is considered with or behind guys like dj white and hardin- those guys both look cool but are not nba players-imo- dorsey will get minutes and make an impact on any team that picks him-(how many bigs can you say about that?)

dorsey will instantly be able to fill a "role" or a couple roles on the team he joins-here are the roles ive always thought a bball team needs-
-point gaurd
-post scorer
-post defender
-rebounder
-scorer
-shooter
-defender
-ball handler off the bench
-energy player
-d*ckhead
-hustler
dorsey could fill parts of 2 or 3 of these roles- this guy will bring defense and rebounding and fill the ever important d-head role

im just convinced this guy is a notch above physically than where alot of people see him- just an absoulute beast, and imo will be from day 1

i guess im just trying to say i was hoping stats or whatever else bad you see from dorsey would be explained because all i see is a for sure impact player- dont get me wrong i dont think this guy is a future all star but to me it seems weird that it isnt obvious to all you guys that you see him and you say there is a pro.

dorsey will be able to defend both pf & even the c spot- he can finish and does it with powerful 2 hand dunks- runs the court very well and finishes lob passes-

i believe that dorsey instead of being grouped with hardin& white should be grouped with jordon, mcgee, r lopez& hibbert- and i see it as a no brainer that dorsey makes the biggest imapct of that group over the next 2-3 years- i understand the "potential" thing but some of these teams should get real

i think dorsey is perfect for golden st to complement beidrins and the hope wright, as well as harrington?- even portland should consider, great bodygaurd on that team- dont make oden be the d-head- imo any team in the league could use him-

i believe dorsey should go 13-20 - realisticly it seems as if he might be late 20's or 2nd rd?? i just dont get it

Dorsey will be a Carl Landry player in the NBA, good defensive specialist who can provide energy and spark a team.

I really like him. But when you have a 6'9 big man who dominates in college because of his strength and attitude, there are always question marks how well they can do the same job in the NBA. Someone like Hardin has much more upside as a potential all-around NBA bick man. Dorsey almost definitely won't be more than a role player even if it will be a tremendous role player. I also think most years there are only between 10 and 15 players who will definitely be good NBA players. After that it's guessing, and for the top teams who pick in the end of teh first round there are rarely players available who can really help them. Yes, you can pick a solid role player like Dorsey, but often you could just as well sign a seasoned veteran (like Mikki Moore or PJ Brown, for example) to do the same job. But when you gamble by picking someone like Hardin or DJ White (who has really good offensive game, by the way) you probably end up with nothing, but there's always the small chance you get something really, really good.

Dorsey could be a really nice bench player. Stay inside and dunk, rebound, and defend. He can push some guys around and just be physical inside. I don't see him being anything more than a 8th or 10th man type.

he can be a good role player for a team but he doesnt have any kind of scoring game besides finishing on lobs. theres really no chance he develops this also seeing as how he was 24 years old in his senior season. i see him as a stronger,more athletic version of reggie evans. 7ppg just doesnt get him in the first round though.dont underestimate dj white either. i would take him over dorsey in a hurry. 17ppg 10 rpg and 1.6 bpg is no scrub. he's also a good 2 years younger

Does Dorsey have "character issues" - I really don't know much about him, besides he's a big rebounder, shot blocking type of power forward.

He has in the past, and I think the Memphis team has that "thug" image overall, but he reminds me a lot of Ben Wallace. He can get heated, he just needs to make sure he doesn't off the court and save if for on the court in a positive way. I think he did that this last year, and he should incredible determination on the boards in the tournament. It was a lot like Pierce just saying he was going to play the best defense of his career in the playoffs this season. Dorsey can be a beast inside. I think he would be perfect for the Lakers since they have kind of a soft inside game.

His age is literally the only thing separating him from being a first-rounder. In a league where the draft is all about who can be good later, no one wants a guy who'll be turning 25 in his rookie year.

If Dorsey were five years younger, we're sitting here talking about the next Dwight Howard, ala DeAndre Jordan.
