Default Chris-Doulgas Roberts

I just found out he shoots 53% from the field.. and 41% form the 3pt-line. Thats pretty insane considerin the fact he scores 18 ppg.

i would be shocked if no one took him at the 15-20 range.

CDR is one of the best shooters in the draft. The thing that worries people is that a lot of his shots were wild, contested shots, that most people wouldn't be able to make. I think that is a skill because he actually used them as a weapon, but most people considered them to be bad shots. The other big thing is that he is skinny, weak, and an average athlete. A lot of people think that he will have a hard time getting to the hoop and getting good shots against bigger NBA defenders. That would turn him into just a jump shooter. Looking at him, though, I think he could add 15 to 20 pounds over the course of the next three seasons or so.

Average athelete? Wow did you even watch him play over the last three seasons at memphis. He is a scorer flat out. He has an unorthodox style. But thats his game. He finds ways to beat opponents. He can finish with both hands and he finishes plays after fouls. He was a first team all american. He will probably at best be a good role player in the nba. But he is a steal if drafted in the twenties and further along in the draft.

I wouldn't look into his stats that far. He was consistent from 3 bot not really a guy who was draining them a bunch every game. His fg% is boosted by the Memphis offense as it gets a lot of fast break points (layups). A lot of his halfcourt offensive shots come from little flip shots in the paint. Not a guy who's going to spot up somewhere for a shot or a catch and shoot guy. More of a creator with the ball. His shots are really tricky and surprise you when they go in...but that's his game.

CDR would be good for them. They need someone who can create his own shot besides lebron.

I really like comparing him to rip hamilton. Not because they both have good jumpers. Because rip has a way better shot. BUt because both are skinny two guards. Both guys run all game and play hard defense. CDR is a little longer abd rip runs off screen better. But in terms of physical tools they both possess aot of the same qualities. Cdr wont be an allstar but he will be effective at the next level.

Jailer, please don't take my comments as a bad thing, as I have been complimenting him a lot over the last month, especially on his ability to handle the ball so that he can play SG in the NBA. Just pointing out the flipside of CDR's numbers. And for an NBA SG he is an average athlete. He is weak and really has a way to go before he can handle driving the lane in the NBA (but as I also said, he will be able to gain some weight). That is a major drawback. He can run and jump, but that doesn't make you a great athlete overall. He will also get pushed around on defense some at first when he goes up against bigger SG. But overall, he is my #2 pick for Houston behind Batum because I think he will be able to come off the bench right away and score when the team is struggling when T-Mac goes down. I really, really like him. If I was their GM, I would be giving him a long look at 14 for the Warriors because of their FA situation and because Jackson is one gunfight away from being out of the league.

Posterize, you explain his game so much better than I can. I just say he takes shots that look wild, but are part of his game. They remind me a lot of Hansbrough's little flip shots he takes. It is a great asset to have when he is matched up against a good defender.

In the end, CDR has some drawbacks, but nothing that can't be fixed in a couple years. The things he does do well are essential for NBA SG, which is a huge help for a team that wants to draft him. He is like buying a really comfy couch, but can get even better after a little work until it is broken in. The wall is built, there are just a few holes to patch up.

I'm surprised his stock is so low, considering he played next to Rose during the NCAA tourney. If anything, I would have expected his stock along with Rose(who did rise) to drastically increase. If he adds more control to his game, I see him being a steal, and a big time player.
