Default NBA Draft Combine

Today and tomorrow, the 2012 Draft Combine happens in Chicago. I figured we could use this thread to discuss the results.

ESPNU to Televise 2012 NBA Draft Combine June 7-8 ESPN MediaZone

Quote:
Over June 7 and 8 ESPNU will present eight hours from the 2012 NBA Draft Combine at the Flames Athletic Center in Chicago. Coverage will begin each day at 10 a.m. ET and will be highlighted by interviews with top draft picks, NBA and college coaches and general managers. The Draft Combine will also be available on ESPN3.

In addition to live reporting and analysis, viewers will get an inside look at how the expected top draft picks fair in the following skills challenges:

Standing Vertical Leap
Maximum Vertical Leap
Lane Agility Drill
Modified Lane Agility Drill
3/4 Court Sprint

Ryen Russillo will host the two-day event with analysis from the network’s college and NBA experts. Analysts Fran Frascilla and Jay Williams will contribute their in-depth knowledge of each draftees college skill set, while Andy Katz reports from the court.
I don't know if this link works in Canada, but you can check the "Raptors' Links" thread on the main page too, and there may be some links for this too.

Also - predictions, or outcomes ...

Who gains the most, or drops the most based on their results?

true... he was one skinny mofo back then.
when i was that age i wasnt able to do it anyway, but some of these guys are monsters and they still struggle. you'd think that they would be hitting the gym hard knowing that this would be a part of the combine.

Anybody watch this? Have a chance to recap anything?

I've heard that some of the news from this is that Waiters has cancelled all of his workouts because he has a draft promise.

Anything else? Anybody?

Watching MKG's interview on the Combine, painful to watch. The guy isn't very quick on his feet.

He was always a better prospect. He's projected in some mock drafts to go 6th

Somebody reported that Jae Crowder only mesaured in at 6'3'' in shoes, or something like that, I think 6'6.5'' with a wingspan of 6'9.25'' is decent enough (although a little undersized) to guard 2s and 3s.

I'd still LOVE him with our first second rounder. We could use a few more high-motor, high-passion guys.

I'd take undersized Quincy Acy too, for the same reasons, almost 6'8'' in shoes isn't as short as I thought he'd be.

I'd also give consideration to Scott Machado at 6'2'' with our 2nd rounder.

T Ross at 6'6'' in barefoot looks pretty good too. I actually like him better than Lamb (who measured a bit shorter than expected) @ 6'4'' barefoot.

I like Sullinger at 6'9'' too.

DX's version of the measurements - better (in my opinion), and sortable. Athletic portion to be added later.
