I can agree with that assessment. So you gotta teach him all those skills before he can contribute, but if he does he'll be great. The finished product would be something like what, Rose/Wall/Westbrook? Those players all dominated college comp athletically, and Rose and Wall got to the rim at will. Exum is much farther off than all those guys, but could potentially get there, I guess

i was kidding, there's nothing but upside, no one knows anything about him

he played in one of those international all star games against both Wiggins and Parker I think and he was the best player on the court (in that game). No one being drafted (except Hairston) has played against NBA level talent so there all basically a crapshoot/potential all stars, take your pick.


I'm just waiting for the Knicks to pick Glen Robinson now that Hairston is gone and then I'll go to bed

they took early, great pick, will probably trade him

no idea he was still available. Maybe they are getting ready to tell Melo to not let the door hit him on the way out. I don't mind a starting five of Calderon. shumpert/smith, Early, Stats and Barganani.

Riley was leaning towards kaman over wade too 😂😂😂
Thank god they took the right person

Wtf spurs got Kyle Anderson??
post #16808 of 27250
Who is Kyle Anderson? Never paid attention to him but already his name all over news as a great pick at 30

Basically a really tall point guard. His shot is meh but engelland can fix that like he fixed kawhi and bonner and parker and bellinelli

I love how there exists a man like the mysterious Mr. Engelland. The shitty shooter whisperer
post #16812 of 27250
Bellinelli shot needed fixing? :P
post #16813 of 27250
Yeah he was a average shooter before he joined the spurs (.357 just the year before). Then he meets engelland and becomes winner of the 3 point contest and finished season with .430. Jump in almost ten percentage points.

Can also be accounted for with better quality looks.

i think the truth is probably that it's a bit of both.
