    A write up I did on all of the Rockets top non-rookie prospects. I finished the article yesterday so Sean Williams is still on there.

    Your thoughts on my analysis? Also on how everyone will fit in?

    I believe in the early 2000's the NBA was littered with successful skinny PF's. The mold of the PF back then was long, lean, and athletic:

    Garnett (whom you mentioned);
    Joe Smith (serviceable);
    McDyess;
    Rasheed Wallace.

    Can't think of anymore off the top of my head. These guys might not be AS skinny as Jajuan Johnson, whom I've never seen. But there was a time when the prototypical PF was not in Barkley's mold, etc.

    I'm actually kind of excited to see what Jajuan Johnson can do. I've heard he's got some post moves and an outside shot.

    I'd like to see if JaJuan can play the 3 off the bench. He's very lengthy and thin. Makes me think of Tayshaun.

    You called him, and I quote, "drop dead gorgeous". That was a bit over the top, doncha think? :)

    Otherwise, it was a good read. Thanks for the input. Though I'm not sold on all of the Prospect Scores, you provide some good insight.

    I liked it. Asik should be higher though. Much higher. Great read.

    Marcus Morris is actually the younger twin, having been born a few minutes later. He is also the less handsome one.

    What is a 10/10? Arron Afflalo? LOL. :rolleyes:

    To me a 10/10 on a prospect scale would be Anthony Davis, someone that is about maxed out in terms of potential and reliability to achieve that potential.

    By that scale, our rookies coming in would range from a 4-7 (Lamb and D-Nuts being the 7-7.5's). None of our veteran players in my book would scratch a 5. Maybe Lin could be a 7 just because he's such an unknown. But the ceilings of Parsons, Patterson, Morris, Asik? Let's be a bit more realistic here. None of them are making all-star games, although they might become very good and useful pieces on a contender.

    If you want to be gay that's your thing which I'm not concerned with but it kind of makes us straight men sick seeing you write with such gayness.

    Unless your a girl and if so I apologize.
