    Hassan Whiteside!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Call me a hater but I don’t think Bradley is ready yet… Now watch him prove me wrong..

    Definitely looking forward to seeing all these guys in the L. Whiteside, especially.

    Although Whiteside has been said to still be raw, but most big men being drafted are..I just hope some team can give him the experience he needs right away.

    Hassan Whiteside is basically Sean Williams

    saw avery bradley play a lot. he’s got some skills on him, better defense than i expected. but he certainly wasn’t spectacular. and he’s undersized. that being said, if someone wants to pay him to work on his game, then he should definitely take the money.

    Are teams looking for Bradley to play the 1 or the 2 in the L? I could see him being a sane version of Gilbert Arenas.

    Not a Willie Warren fan AT ALL.

    Avery Bradley has no J … he’s not anything like Gilbert. Reminds me a lot more of Russell Westbrook and to a lesser extent Jennings. He’ll be an above average defensive player right away but his offensive game is very limited. Avery is not ready to help a bad NBA team right now. I think all this has a lot more to do with players worrying about a potential lockout in 2012.

    Not sure what happened with Willie Warren this year, but I can see him being a Stuckey type scoring PG in the league.

    Avery and Willie better HOPE HARD that they work out well if they hire agents…Willie should’ve gone last year and Avery needs another year, probably.

    avery’s not hiring an agent. he also shot 37% from deep, which isn’t great but isn’t exactly indicative of having no j.

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    His jumper isn’t perfect, but it is existent. Avery just didn’t have the opportunity to really shoot that much this season.

    Is it me or does it seem like the draft will be full of future role players? Other than John Wall (who I seriously cannot see being better than D. Rose) nearly no one else possesses game changing ability.
