let's keep it on topic and get off the discussion of race and calling shit racist when it's actually just racialist at worst. I don't want to trash any more garbage posts. Back to Jimmer - ok?

Why you deleted my post LX? I just wanted to explain it's not racist. And it's kinda on topic, we talking about non athletic guard prospect...

I deleted your post and the one calling your previous post racist, because I don't think race needs to be at the forefront of this discussion to the point where it veers off into the racial makeup of various players. Nor did I think you needed to be confronted with accusations that were not really any more pertinent or correct.

I'd just like this to get back on track, before I need to be faced with closing the thread altogether - and that's not meant to single you out.

Ok, LX, lets be friendly. I understood you, but I a little disagree. And I will try explain it. It's very hard to me using my broken/terrible english.
Race over here is on topic, because we talking about basketball player. He is athlete and earns his money using his body. Fact is, black people has stronger psoas major and psoas minor muscles. Thats why they usually are better athletes. Thats the thing, no racism...

alright - I get your point, but it's a generalization, and a potentially dangerous one. Let's talk about athletes and lesser athletes with various skills. Race doesn't have to come into it, and nor does accusations of racism. Let's not get into that vicious cycle. Now let's move on.

Anyway, isn't he just Jason Kapono light?

Exactly. I don't know how his game will translate to the NBA(I mean we can all sit here and predict and one of us will be right) but he is not just a 3pt shooter. He is a very good 3 pt shooter but he can take the ball to the hoop also. Defense have done all they can to stop him this year but still can't do it.

His coach said it best something like this "I've seen every defense thrown at him. Now all I am waiting for is someone to pull the Curry and have 2 people guard Jimmer". In College one year Stephen Curry was guarded by 2players. Wherever he went they went. A team really tried that to beat Davidson. Basically taking Curry out of the game and playing 4on3.

Like I said before its hard to predict if his game will translate to the NBA. Some do(Stephen Curry) others don't(Adam Morrison). All 3 of these had things in common and that is they were the best scorers in CBB in their last year there.

I know one thing is I can't wait to watch him in the NCAA tourney.

Simply based off the recent track record the Raptors have in the lottery, no drafting of white players. Please.

I say JJ Redick. He is definitely worth a late first round pick, but our Miami pick wont be able to get him. Maybe trade up?

He is a score first point guard. People at ESPN were comparing him to Curry and some say he has potential to be Nash type player. Only there is no one worth passing to on that BYU team. He carries the ball 90% of the time for his team. His D sucks.

This guy is going to make or break someone's draft.... esp. if BYU goes far in the tourney.

Well watching him tool the same NCAA guys OTHER Ncaa PG's are really just playing a little better than tells me one thing, he's better than them.

So.

he may not be Steve Nash just yet, but I bet he's gonna be a pretty fucking good player. Kid knows how to play. I'd take him over some flash player who dunks well.

i hear what you're saying, but guys like reddick and bobby hurley definitely tooled the best of college basketball in their time too. they're just not big and athletic enough to get it done at the highest level.
