I was reading a few articles on Kemba, and one guy said he would compare him to Isiah Thomas. Do you guys think that's an accurate comparison?

How about putting Nolan Smith in the mix? He's had an amazing year and is playing incredibly well in the tournament.

He has a nice handle, can play some D, distribute, and has good touch around the hoop. At a legit 6'3'' he's got good size for a pg.

He's also been improving all year. I've watched quite a bit of Duke this year and he's gotten better in almost every game.

From what I've seen (and this is only about 5ish games), I can see a little bit of Thomas in his game, but he really reminds me of a cross between Dwayne Wade, and Allen Iverson (minus the crazy and less ball dominant).

There is questions about him dominating the ball, but UCONN is filled with rookies. As we saw in the game against Cincinnati, that if he didn't take over the game, they would have lost.

Kemba's tournament will get him to only show up for the measurements at the combine, and that will be a huge determining factor in his draft position.

As for Kyrie, I missed the game today, but I wonder if him coming back to the tourney will help, hurt, or have no affect on his draft stock.

another PG I would keep an eye on is Alec Burks. I like his size at PG spot, he can score and shoot and defend.
But he won't be picked top10.

Kemba reminds me of Tim Hardaway - minus the homophobia.

If you didn't get that joke, you're not homophobic.

I think Kyrie is overrated...... He's like Jay Williams.

Kemba is more NBA ready.

However, Kyrie is a better prospect because he is a "true" PG who can run a ball club (like CP3, Rondo, D Will).

Kemba is more of a scorer who can make immediate impact in the NBA.

We do not need a scorer, we need a player who can do it all at the PG.
