re: Am I trollin for thinking of shabazz as way overrated right now?

He'll never be an NBA 3. He's 6'4.5" WITH shoes.

Austin Rivers is bigger than him with a longer reach.

Saw shabazz play in myrtle beach at beach ball classic. a tourney for the best highschool b- ballers in the country. Kobe, vince carter, kevin garnett all played in this. Was not impressed wth shabazz at all nor was i impressed wth the kid from st. Aug of n.o. forget his name. Saw a white kid from utah hitting 3 pointers from almost half court like a 15 footer jr. Already commited to BYU.

Shabazz was kinda standing around calling for the ball, to take someone to the hole one on one like jordan but was not that much better than kid gaurding him.

Mcclemore should at least be able to live on his athleticism and a jump shot that looks good. Henry has neither.

I remember being disapointed that the Hornets passed on Henry a few years ago because I thought he would've been a great fit with CP. Henry was supposed to be a good, not great, athlete and a knock down shooter. Turns out he's neither and really does nothing well on the basketball court.

I followed Henry in HS because ESPN had him as the top prospect in his class for most of his senior year.

Hell lance thomas has looked better than henry most of the time.

If I had to rank our SFs

Aminu(IF he gets his head back on straight)
Thomas(Has been decent at times)
Henry( )
Miller(needs another shot imo)

From a physical standpoint, Henry has a very well-built frame, especially mature considering he’s still only 18 years old. Athletically, he is a good but not great athlete, not having outstanding quickness or vertical explosiveness around the basket, but still enough to probably be considered average for a wing at the NBA level, while also possessing great coordination and body control.


I was just reading this article and you said the same thing. That's why I said that

Ah ok.

Maybe its the left handed stroke but I thought he'd at least be able to stand in the corner and hit a 3.

First sentence might be right. But wrong on the second two things. Austin Rivers has a wingspan near his own height, and just barely. Muhammad has a near 7' wingspan. He's also over 6'5" with shoes on.

Muhammad reminds me of derozan with a better shot

Dude beasted tonight and, while I know it doesn't mean THAT much, NBAdraft.net has him projected as the top pick now. Given how terrible Rivers has been, I wouldn't mind drafting him if he's there when we pick.
