Marshall Henderson.

Is Glenn Robinson III still considered a high potential player? He disappeared in so many games, and he really needs to tighten his handle, and learn to make 3s. Yet he remains a long athletic wing.

Sure. The liklihood of him actually reaching that potential just doesn't seem as high as it did this time last year. People figured he'd improve this season and then he didn't.

I doubt they are just leaving it all up random internet strangers. See if anyone out there gives them anything slightly interesting for free and get some publicity out of it. Worst case, you disregard everything and just use your own data. Best case, you find some diamond in the rough to add to your front office.

Most likely case, Declan and dokmo get jobs in Sacramento

This is actually what I have been doing instead of writing draft profiles for you guys, I've been dropping hot draft tips in the Kings' suggestion box along with sternly worded reprimands about firing Rick Adelman

I really don't have much to contribute to the draft threads so I don't post in them much but I feel the need to let you know that I appreciate the effort that you put in making them Declan.

Cool people is what I'm all about (he got worse after last year and his shot selection isn't the greatest, he's a longshot to make the league at all much less be drafted)

He also makes noted cool forums poster Ehud real mad

As far as I know he's hit some clutch shots and gets in trouble for ketamine/coke/everything else but aside from that he's not good enough for the NBA.

I've watched that .gif hundreds of times over the years, lots of dudes yellin' gently caress YOU gently caress YOU gently caress YOU at him, somebody throws an umbrella, several girls can't believe what's happened, but mostly the happy white-shirt man on the right and beard guy on the left seem like cool dudes. Henderson also looks glassy-eyed during the game but that can happen from adrenaline. But then I knew some college basketball types who would get coked up for their games, white folks have their odd ways about them.

He's pretty good. His stats look weird because he has to do all the shooting for his team and shoots almost nothing but threes. He is also hilarious and an all time great college basketball character. He's not going to make the NBA though, tragically.

I feel like there should be some sort of system where if you have an amusing enough on court personality that some NBA team has to give you a 2-3 year deal.

I guess he can still be pissing off opposition fans in Europe/Australia or something.

Here are some profiles with player comps which I loving hate but which you dudes seem to want so here they are

A DOPE rear end BUNCH OF POINT GUARDS

Dante Exum (Intl. '95, Australia)

PG/SG, 6'6, 188 lbs.

Pros: Very athletic, outstanding physical profile, Australian combo guard which is very in right now, adorable, great handle, adept at finishing in traffic, skilled at creating space, gifted passer, can play on or off the ball

Cons: Very little footage exists of him so it's one of those "foreign bigfoot" deals. Not the greatest shooter right now. The closest comp for him is probably a taller Russell Westbrook so some dumb idiots are going to be bitching about him every time he plays. Tends to create offense for himself first and foremost. Mediocre free throw shooter. I like him a lot so it's bound to blow up in my face.

Player comp that is a reflection of playstyle and not of overall potential: Russell Westbrook/Dwyane Wade


Marcus Smart (So., OkSt)

PG, 6'4, 225 lbs.

Pros: Built like a Mack truck, wisely decided to ignore an open LeBryan Nash for one and a half years, gifted rebounder, excellent at disrupting passing lanes, projects as a great defender, improved turnovers between freshman and sophomore year

Cons: Shoots the ball like he's having a muscle spasm. Punched a white guy one time. Poor shot selection. Projects best in a halfcourt offense and how boring is that?

Player comp that is a reflection of playstyle and not of overall potential: I guess Gary Payton? Or maybe Tim Hardaway post-knee surgery.



Tyler Ennis (Fr., Cuse)

PG, 6'2, 180 lbs.

Pros: Babyfaced PGs from Syracuse are also very in, Pure Point Guard TM, racks up steals, gifted passer, skilled in the pick and roll, excellent at using screens and directing an offense, excellent court vision

Cons: Pushes off, like, constantly. A weak man-to-man defender, even for a Syracuse guy. Spotty shooter. Terrible finisher.

Player comp that is a reflection of playstyle and not of overall potential: Greivis Vasquez



Elfrid Payton (So., ULL)

PG, 6'4, 165 lbs.

Pros: Probably the best lateral quickness of anyone in this draft class, fun hair, skilled at creating his own shot in isolation and in pick and roll situations, fantastic at getting to the rim, excellent defender, great court vision, a very young sophomore, ~*~*~*~explosive~*~*~*~

Cons: Can be careless with the ball. Not a good finisher or shooter. Skinny. Unselfish to a fault at times. Poor free throw shooter. Didn't play much in the way of competition. Maybe too chill.

Player comp that is a reflection of playstyle and not of overall potential: Ty Lawson

Tyler Ennis isn't a spotty shooter. He is a pretty spotty finisher around the basket which is concerning, but he's a good shooter.

The point of his study was to see how people react when others say things or act a certain way against another group of people ... TBC

He chose gays because of how he relates to it and has to live it EVERYDAY of his life ... He asked me because he knew I would get incredible

As far as what I said, Totally was 100% for the project ... as far as my ACTUAL views - its irrelevant because its gonna happen regardless!
