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


I try to watch every UCLA game I can to convince myself otherwise, but he doesn't look very big, doesn't make many explosive plays, is a decent rebounder, and just kinda hangs out on the offensive end. If your not moving on offense your doing something wrong. I saw Bill Walton play in the final four live, and watched him go 22 of 23 from the field. Guy never stopped moving. I believe people today look too far into potential and not enough of what is happening right now. If I was Monty and Demps, I would take trey burke as of now with our first rounder. Am i crazy?

Won't be an issue. This team will not strike Gold twice. Also, with Gordon we will lose ping pin balls once we get to feb Nd March when schedule softens. Late lotto players is what we are looking at if we keep the pick which isn't a sure thing either.

Bill Walton was pretty fricking good, most players don't compare to him.

All it took was to read a couple of negative articles and see the "shabus" for me to decide he sucks.

I hate using that term. But I'm not impressed with Muhammad right now. He might yet dazzle me.

He might be overrated and still be the best player in this draft class.

Why not Ben mclemore being talked about as much on here, I think he could grow into a stud as a 3

Because he's smaller than Muhammad and less of his games have been on TV.

Smaller by an inch and 20 pounds but he should gain weight once in the NBA

He's an undersized SG. He'd get abused at SF, unless he has some crazy growth spurt in the next few months. He's closer to being a Westbrook-type PG than an NBA small forward

not at all. he's being compared to Harrison Barnes...while better than the guys on the roster now that's not exactly blowing my skirt up.

they can find a guy like budinger, parsons, leonard- not a lot of hype but good nba players

He's not really that great, but he's the best player available at a position of need in an otherwise horrible draft class

I'd take him as a SG but you said small forward

Ben McLemore is Irish for Xavier Henry

Yea but why couldn't he play SF he's one inch shorter the Andre iguadola, as long as he got the athleticism which he does. I'd rather shabazz at the number one pick but I think mclemore could end up as a 3 on some teams
