Louisville as NBA factory
« Reply #5341 on: April 17, 2019, 02:27:06 PM »

The University of Louisville has had 75 players taken in the NBA Draft, including eight in the last six years.

There are seven guys who are currently getting opportunities in the NBA — Deng Adel (Cleveland Cavaliers), Gorgui Dieng (Minnesota Timberwolves), Montrezl Harrell (Los Angeles Clippers), Damion Lee (Golden State Warriors), Donovan Mitchell (Utah Jazz), Terry Rozier (Boston Celtics) and Ray Spalding (Phoenix Suns). Of those seven, four are playing with their respective teams in the NBA playoffs and are key pieces on their rosters.

Robinson joins Mark Eaton as the only NBA rookies to average more than two blocks per game in 20 minutes per game or fewer.

Would love to continue the argument, but I have the NUGGETS in the Finals

heh - Go, Jamaaaaal.

There's no argument. Nobody in the world thinks the Nuggets kept the wrong guy, and there's no way to prove that they did. So when you make this declaration, understand it is not one anyone can engage.

What we know: Murray is inconsistent but at times brilliant, while Mudiay is just the former. There is no professional on record as thinking the two are in the same class. Their salaries are going to be a strong indication of how much more Murray is valued than Mudiay (likely Jamal receives at least three or four times the total guaranteed salary). The Denver press has been ecstatic since they chose Murray over Mudiay.

I think you are correct on the salaries as Denver will re-up Murray while they did not with Emmanuel.

And I never said to get rid of Murray, by the way.

Interesting reading. Yeah, he's not sold on any of our point guards. Well, why should he be? As for Knox, nothing we couldn't see....

Knox has a lot to work on, but also a good deal to build on.
He's real young.  Good body.  Needs more strength and to fill out more.  His defensive awareness was not good.  But he has other things ahead of that (though that should be a focus too).

Franc is Rory Sparrow.
Looking like a backup combo guard.
But he's young.  And only got half a season in.
I'd put him in Summer League and tell him to be super-aggressive, look to score to make an assists every time down. 
Try to alter his mentality some.

I think his defense is reasonably solid, but overrated.  Foul prone. Sometimes not good angles or stance.  Might navigate a pick well or poorly.  Good effort.  Long arms.


Never understood why players, especially Points don't seek out Clyde's help.  Some might be intimidated a bit, others might think Clyde's got his job and role. Maybe some of the young guys and especially the foreigners don't really know who he was to some extent.

Always thought the team could help by giving Clyde some sort of semi-official role.  Pay Clyde $250K a year as a Defensive Consultant or Special Guard Guru.  I'm sure Clyde wouldn't mind the extra money and he's around the team most of the year and has down time in the hotel.  So he could give some advice and do some small side-work with some of the players on a weekly basis or whatever.  He knows his ish, knows how to communicate lessons pithily and effectively, and is basically scouting the team all season anyway.

So not just on the players, the Knicks could make it something semi-official.  I don't think a little Clyde on the Side would step on the toes of the coaching staff.

Mud, Franc, Jr. Smith could all use some overall guidance, especially on D.  Zo & Dot should be young sponges as well.

Agree that Clyde’s input would help. It’s not like he’s been away from the game.

Franc is Rory Sparrow.

I remember first time I saw Mark Jackson in a Knick uni. First time on the court. As a rookie. It was like "holy f.." What talent. What game feel. The Rory Sparrow era is really, really over...finally, a real PG for the Knicks. So wonderful it was.

I remember the first time I saw Marbury in a Knick uni. First game after the trade. Similar feeling. All the Howard Eisleys washed away, though the glow quickly faded.

Looking forward to feeling that feeling again.

The problem is what are the problems? Motor. Awareness. Court IQ.....head & heart issues like these often not fixable, different from say shooting mechanics. Rarely see those rectified satisfactorily. That's why I didn't and still don't like the pick. Not saying never, but to me, it is not promising.

I had the same feeling about Mark Jackson (and had it for him when he was in college).  And then I had the same feeling about Rod Strickland......
