    And you acted like those guys were scrubs...They all had or have had solid careers.

    Please go read your own post, you clearly stated undrafted guys never pan out, so by the sound of it, in your mind "pan out" means much more than being an All-star(Brad Miller), DPOY(Ben Wallace).

    Pass first PG's are my favorite to watch, and as our current team is built at the time of posting...there couldnt be a BETTER place to surprise people. We dont have a PG on this roster worth mentioning, so bring him on...I just dont wanna get my hopes up only for them to be crushed like Kelvin Cato did.

    SO, you're saying after 2 good weeks, making Novak and Jeffries better, making a game winning shot.. after all that let's just forget about his potential and give up on him? Yeah. You'll be a good parent.

    He made Novak better? Please, do tell! I mean I am sure its not Novaks extraordinary shooting ability paired with a SCHEME to get him shots.

    Made JEFFRIES better? Not even going to address that.

    Game winning shot? Wanna know who else hit tons of game winners? Tyron Lue.

    2 good weeks doesnt mean he will have 1 good season. Hell, he was playing really poorly right before he blew out his knee.

    I bet you also think Tebow is a good quarterback.

    I've only watched highlights. He doesn't look athletic enough to be a starter but he should be a decent backup/game manager type. What's probably the most impressive thing that I saw is he gets very few assists on PnR's. Most of his assists are the keeping his eyes open variety and not on set plays.

    He should be interesting to watch.

    He played against garbage competition in a terrible league.

    J'Covan Brown, baby fat and all, would school this scrub.

    If Machado is as good as Andre Miller then he will be the steal of the draft.

    Parson's was one of our best two way players! Shooting woes went away at the middle/end of the season and he was a great finisher at the rim. And he was clutch too with not too many turnovers for a rookie.

    I came into this thread to read about Scott Machado. It ended up being a Jeremy Lin thread. :confused:

    Don't make broad statements...

    Cause you leave yourself open to being wrong most of the time.

    And yes, I read your response that these players have major deficiencies in their game, so do most players in the draft.

    I personally think that it is way to early to start talking about this guys deficiencies. Wait until we see him play in the summer league before talking about his inadequacies please.

    Yeah, pretty sure the two biggest reasons why Lin didn't do well at the end of the season was because Melo was the main option again and he became the ball stopper... again. Not to mention Lin went against stiffer defenses. End the end Yaosdirtystache you put your foot in your mouth when you said undrafted rookies hardly ever pan out?

    Why because all players in the draft have NO deficiencies right? They all come out of the draft with complete games is that your argument there?
