Which current Qhatz Baller has best shot at NBA?
« on: February 22, 2012, 06:21:01 PM »
If anyone on this team has a shot at the league  I think it is Shane.  Pretty crazy what Frank is doing with the talent that he has.

Maybe JO? Sometimes 7 footers make teams just because they are 7 foot.

Nothing's holding Rodney back, his size and skill set are sufficient enough to be an NBA 2, frankly he just needs to get better.  I wouldn't be shocked to see Rod as a late pick next year if he continues to improve.

The talking point that the NBA takes 7 rioters as projects is a fallacy.  First of all JO is not a true seven footer.  When the GMs do take a seven footer they generally look for two things either someone that's a banger with the body to withstand an 82 game season + playoffs.  Or if they are a slender guy like JO they need to be able to face up and hit jump shots.

JO can hit the FT extended J? It seems like he rarely misses in that range when he takes them. It's not like Dirk quality fade away awesomeness, but if left open, he hits it. If he has a solid SR campaign he might make it. Though I think his size and skill set is better suited for the way the NBA was, not how it is.

Diaz has a chance, 6'10" and a good skill set needs to develop.

Rodney is pretty small and weak for an NBA 2 IMO. At least with his skillset. I would be shocked if he is a late round pick.

#teamAngel's on-court awareness and other natural instincts are absolutely incredible. He just needs to harness that crap. I wouldn't be surprised.

Not nearly deep enough, to be a good high major big in college you should be expected to hit a 15 footer.  No NBA defense has to try hard at all to defend a skinny 6'10" kid who has a range of 15 feet.

Agree to disagree, we both could name two dozen NBA 2s Rodney's size or smaller.  He's big enough not to be isolated on the post or elbow by most bigger 2s, problem is he isn't athletic enough to get around anyone else in the league.  His shot would be a driveway shooter, and he ain't that either.  Like I said he'd have to improve, I should have included the word everything at the end.

Not saying they have the best shot, but I think both are decent comparos.  Gipson needs to build some muscle and gain some athleticism but he has a wide body and is pretty skilled.  Rodney is a bit shorter and a lot stronger than Hamilton but both have similar games.  Both have solid NBA midrange games, and with Frank's comments about Rodney being a repetition guy the long NBA schedule would be good for him.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Gottlieb said early in the year JO has a good chance.  82 games is a lot, but not when you play 8 minutes a game like he would.

Frank coaching up lesser talent or Shane in the league?
