Not feeling a kid that's 5'7'' that loves to drive to the hoop. That won't fly against the big bodies in the Big East... oh wait.
Honestly though, wish he had more shooting highlights because as much as I love his ball handling, gonna be real tough for him to score on college centers on layups all the time...
His crossover and change of speed was rediculuos and will certainly transfer. I would have liked to see a better display of his passing but even going to the hop he seems to have a great feel as to when to release to get his shot off.
First impression was a shorter less athletic Jonny. No real feel for his floor game involving other players or his jumper.
Height in baseball means nothing, there. Basketball on the other hand is a big issue unless you're mugsy bogues. I'd rather go after Kuran Iverson in 2013.he might have a better crossover than iverson, knows how to break down a player and create space with seemingly ease.plays full speed and turbo. 5 ' 7'' who cares even if he stays that way he has unique skills , ask dustin pedroia about 5 ' 7''
The guy is a winner. Down the stretch he wins games. His highlights already show he is more of a gunner then Flynn was in Highschool. I just worry about the zone getting torched if he isn't extending and he doesn't have the forward and center to back him up on his side.
Quoting what Scout has said of him "He can Really shoot it from deep" "He is actually a really talented passer though he prefers to score"
LOL. That's not true at all. Kid is a big time self-promoter. The Italian League club was contacted and asked to confirm the rumor and they said "We wouldnt sign him even IF HE PAID US." Ouch. Dont believe everything you read on the internet.this was the kid who had a rumored deal overseas already..nothing has come from it lately so it was pretty much confirmed to be a hoax.
In regards to the zone, he could be ok. If he uses his quickness on defense like he does on offense he could be good. What he would give up on people shooting over him, he could make up with on the ball harrassment. If he's good at keeping guys in front of him, he could be good at preventing them from splitting the top of the zone with dribble penetration. If he anticipates well, he could jump in passing lanes and get some steals. Now, I don't know if he is actually good at any of this, but I don't want to write him off just because he's short.
i hear ya... but the kids got real talent to bad hes vertically challengedOf the prospects we have interest in for 2013, I'd prefer
over Carr. Just because we have a lot of very good guards right now. I just don't like that size on the top of the zone.
