    Name: Jamal Mashburn
    College: Kentucky
    Height: 6'8"
    Position: Small Forward
    Other Positions: Power Forward
    Stengths: Versatility, Strength, Shooting, Ball-handling
    Weaknesses: Perhaps leaping ability, mental attitude, average defender
    Poop:


    http://www.ibiblio.org/craig/draft/1993_draft/scout/sf.html

    Jamal Mashburn finished his UK career as one of the all time greatest
    Wildcat players. He finished his career leading the Wildcats to their
    1st final four since 1984, and ended up the #4 leading scorer in
    UK history. Mashburn is a jack of all trades. At 6'8", 235, he can
    play either inside or outside. Inside, he has a variety of moves, a la
    Kevin McHale, with all sorts of head fakes and turnaround moves. He
    can be virtually unstoppable in the low post, especially against
    smaller and weaker players. If that isn't enough, he can take his
    game outside, where he can easily stroke the college 3-pter, and I
    wouldn't be surprised if his range could extend to the NBA 3-pt line.
    He can score from a set shot, he can score posting up, and he can score
    off the dribble. He is an excellent ball-handler. Rick Pitino himself
    calls him the prototype small forward in the NBA. Mashburn is a tough
    one-on-one task for any defender. Not too many weaknesses on this
    1st-team all-american, however, he always has been noted for a
    lackadasical attitude, and is prone to "falling asleep" during games.
    Doesn't really have that take-over attitude. Mashburn also has been
    accused of not really being able to jump, and he doesn't block many
    shots. He is an average defender at best, according to Pitino. However
    his versatility is very well suited to today's NBA game, and expect him
    to be one of the 1st 3, if not the 1st player picked in the 1993 draft.



    How does he compare to this guy?

    Thats a bit of a stretch because in the NFL Combine - which I have attended multiple times in the past - They bench 225 not 185 .... and many have put up 40 reps over the years.

    I think it was the time of the day that i started this thread. If you noticed, most of the later threads have been more calm and thought provoking.
    I knew when i made the thread that it would be controversial, so i expected it.
    Thanks.

    Add 30lbs of muscle, elite passing, and passion, and it sounds like Royce. Royce can jump though.

    Yeah, i think he meant NBA combine, which has a record of 28(i think) presses at 185.

    Hakeem owes nothing to the Rockets at this point. Any help a student of the game recieves from him is soley something the student seeks out on his own. Further more.. Yao is not here half the time to help the Rockets org where he is not on salary. He has business interests to be tending to. Also, Hakeem loves Lebron and would give him way more att. than some unproven rookie.

    Royce has size, strength, vision, ability but lacks explosiveness. He's got average speed/first step at best. Lebron blows by people. Royce can't do that. I see him getting in foul trouble against quick cutting SFs

    What people are failing to notice is the attack mode dude is in 110% of the time.

    AND he will never settle for a lay up!

    If he can dunk it, he dunks it.

    He will make posters in the reg!

    Whoops, you're right. For some reason I thought it was 185. Nonetheless, 29 of 185 pounds is very impressive. Hoiberg said that's pretty much more than he's ever seen anybody do at the NBA combine.

    Both can be helped by weighing 245-250 instead of 260-270.

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/h_yfqippMpA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Royce White got some skills, but he isn't a super athlete.

    His skillset are some what close but noone or atleast not me ever compared him to a young Sir Charles. For me he is a Anthony mason/Larry Johnson Type.
