is hudson really that good? i saw him in 1 game and he played well in it. but they said he really got outplayed by ty lawson in orlando.
"The best matchup of the night pitted UNC's Ty Lawson versus Tennessee-Martin's Lester Hudson. Lawson came in with the blue-chip pedigree but with a draft stock thats taken a beating this year. Hudson came in with a small school background and a checkered past, but he had wowed scouts and executives in early drills.
Hudson's stock looked to be on the rise while Lawson's seemed to be free-falling.
Both players came off the bench at the 10-minute mark and guarded each other. The verdict was an overwhelming knockout for Lawson, who dominated Hudson on both ends of the ball. Lawson's tenacious defence forced Hudson into five early turnovers and a couple of bad shots. Meanwhile, Lawson kept pushing the ball and making things happen on the offensive end.
Hudson ended the game with four points on 2-for-6 shooting, with five assists and five turnovers. Lawson's numbers weren't spectacular--he had 10 points,four assists,and shot 4-for-10 from the field--but several GMs walked away impressed with Lawson.
"He came out with great energy and played like he had something to prove," one GM said. "He kicked Hudson's butt, I think he helped himself.
Even with Hudson's poor performance,NBA executives still fell Hudson is going to be in the league. The spurs met with him earlier in the day and several other teams are scheduled to interview him."
