The way I see it, we have possibly the best SG in the draft in Jeremy Lamb, and a SF/PF Hybrid in the mold of Lebron James in Royce White.
These are not picks to be sneezed at. Royce White especially intrigues me, his handles are ridiculous. Everyone is talking about how we will have the same record or we have no stars? Who is to say these players won't be our new stars? Give them playing time and watch the magic happen.
A high draft position does not equate to a star. Kobe was drafted 13. Look at Manu in the 2nd round.
I'd say that chances of us getting one legit star out of this...a top 20 player...is probably about 3%.
"If I had to pick a center...I would take Olajuwon. That leaves out Shaq, Ewing…Wilt. It leaves out a lot of people...It's not just his scoring, not just his rebounding or not just his blocked shots. People don't realize he was in the top seven in steals...For all facets of the game, I have to give it to him." —Michael Jordan
I think White's ceiling is somewhere between Anthony Mason and a lesser Barkley (the younger, extremely mobile version). The former was a borderline All Star at times (16/11/6 one year), and Chuck was Chuck. I hope White makes it to his ceiling
CP3...my current favorite player. And he's only the 2nd one I've ever used that distinction on. ClutchFans 2009 NFL TD Survivor Champion ClutchFans 2009-2010 NBA Survivor Champion
I love the picks. All three have significant ability to put the ball on the floor and get to the iron. Royce White is just a total baller. Lamb is a great shooter. Terrence Jones is a great all-around player. Weren't there some reports a few weeks ago about TJones tearing up the guys he was working out with... like PJ3?
