A good jumper. He uses good positioning to grab a nice share of rebounds ... A hard worker, Paul hustles down the floor and never takes a play off ... Very coachable, a player who knows his role on the team. With time should turn into a very nice post player. Has shown improvement in each of his 4 years of college ball ...

Josh Boone 6-10, 237 Jr.
Strengths: Long, explosive bigman ... Blue collar guy, does the dirty work to help his team win ... Has a great attitude, plays hard, wants to improve ... Strong defensively ... Explosive leaper, with good timing and instincts on blocked shots ... Giant wingspan gives him added size ... Fights hard for rebounds, hustles for loose balls ...

Needs to develop better offensive post moves ... Must develop a consistent mid range jump shot ... A little rigid in his upper body, not fluid with his ball skills.

Kevin Pittsnogle 6-10, 255 Sr.
Strengths: Pittsnogle is a tremendous shooting bigman. He has proven time and again that he can not only knock down shots from outside with consistency, but also big shots in big game stuations ... Adept at hitting shots with a player in his face ... On the next level, he will spread the floor forcing a big man to guard him on the perimeter ... Hard worker, worked hard on improving his athleticism and quickness in the past year and it is showing with his adding mobility, which is allowing him to score and rebound better ...

Excellent IQ, great mentality, seems to understand the game very well.

Needs to improve his balls handling skills which can give him versatility to play some at SF position ... Has a very good shot from outside but needs to develop it more ... Needs time playing at a higher level of competition and experience.

Small Forwards

Shawne Williams 6-9, 225 Fr.
Strengths: Has tremendous versatility, at 6-9 Shawne can play from the 1-thru-4 positions ... Advanced offensive game, really understands how to play ... Great one on one skills offensively ... Great vision, passing skills ... Good ball handler, almost second nature ... Can create for himself or others off the dribble drive ... Consistent jump shot, with range out to three point ... A highlight reel waiting to happen ... Extremely long wingspan makes him a terrific rebounder and shot blocker ... Good competitor, doesn't back down from a challenge, as he showed squaring off with Adam Morrison after being pushed ... His body is not far from being NBA ready.

Weaknesses: Low-release point on his jumper could cause problems at the next level ... Will need to develop better defensive technique, more intensity ... Quickness is very good, but won't stand out on the next level ... Still must add strength and conditioning.

Marcus Vinicius 6-9, 220 1984
Strengths: A natural born offensive player, Marcus can do anything with the ball. Has a perfect shot, shooting from the 3-pt line or the perimeter. With his size, can shoot over anyone and his long arms provide a high release point. Has all the fundaments of the game, can pass, dribble, play post-up, penetrate the boards and his ball-handling is very strong for a men of his size. Runs the floor like a 6-3 guy, with spectacular agility and he excels in the fast break situation. Already has a good leaping ability and his body hasn't fully developed so it can improve.

Weaknesses: Defense; he has a lot to learn defensively. Doesn't seem to enjoy playing defense and will have to improve his intensity and effort here. Also must gain some strength and bulk to contend with NBA players. Sometimes looks lost and has bouts of inconsistency, but his knowledge and feel for the game will improve as he gains experience. He's still learning the game but with international experience (Italian league), in three years Marcus could be a top 3 International prospect.

Louis Amundson 6-8, 225 Sr.
Strengths: Tremendous rebounder at the small forward position ... A late bloomer who has long been an extremely athletic player and has worked very hard to add offensive abilities to his game ... An energy player who gives great effort every game ... Plays within himself ... Extremely quick and explosive, plays the game with passion ... Long arms and great leaping ability ... Crashes the boards especially hard, a tenacious rebounder on both ends of the floor ... Tough to guard close to the basket ... Very good defensively with quick feet and the desire to work hard on the defensive end ... Wiry strong athlete who absorbs contact well.

Weaknesses: Limited offensively, he has little range on his shot past 12 feet (although it has greatly improved in the past year) ... His ball handling skills are weak ... He gets most of his points in close to the basket with garbage (rebound and putback) buckets ... Lacks the strength to play power forward and is not highly skilled on the perimeter, however his foot speed makes him solid defensively ... Poor free throw shooter, but has showed some improvement ... Lacks great vision and passing ability.

Shooting Guards

Maurice Ager 6-4, 202 Sr.
Strengths: One of the most explosive athletes in the college game ... Consistently raises his level of play in big games, great competitor ... Excellent all around scorer ... Good outside shooter with range out to three point ... Creates well off the dribble with terrific ball handling ability ... Strong one on one skills, has a nose for scoring ... Good at slashing to the basket and finishing ... Great speed and quickness in the open floor ... Aggressive player who gets to the line often and converts his FTs at a good clip. Averaged over 90% as a senior in high school ... Excellent body control, can get some spectacular ally oops and put backs when crashing the glass ... Excellent rebounder at the guard position, not afraid of contact ... Long wingspan and good hands ... Plays sound defense and his foot speed can create problems for opponents ... Hard worker who has shown steady improvement over his 4 years at Michigan St.

Weaknesses: Undersized at 6-4 for the 2guard position but has long arms and great athleticism to make up for it ... Vision and passing ability is average ... Should focus on becoming a better defender. Seems to give more effort towards scoring ... Doesn't pick up many steals defensively ... Can be too aggressive shooting outside but will keep shooting through a slump ... Body strength has gotten better but could be improved upon to absorb contact inside.

Shannon Brown 6-3, 200 Jr.
Strengths: Shannon is a phenomenal athlete comparable to few prior. A true highlight-film waiting to happen on the fastbreaks, he is just as likely to rise up and dunk on the defense in a half-court setting. An on-target shooter with a high-rising jumper and pretty form. A capable handle despite not having to play the point guard spot with his high school team. He also is a solid defender when he sets his mind to shutting down his opponent. Exciting player with supreme athletic gifts, draws comparisons to Ronnie Fileds. Has the ability to play the point guard position on the next two levels. With his athleticism coupled with very large hands, bigger than his 6'9" teammates, and long arms, he has the tools to dominate.

Weaknesses: Classified as "great" in about every category, his passing ability, while above par, is not yet at the elite level. At times becomes lax on the defensive end when he is not totally entrapped in the game. Like many great shooters, he will most always try to shoot himself out of a slump, and at times this can serve as a deficiency to his game. A natural shooting guard, his size at 6'1" is a setback, but with capabilities at the lead guard spot, he will be alright.

Thabo Sefolosha 6-6, 213 1984
Strengths: Has improved considerably in the past year ... A catch and shoot guy ... His offensive game has made great strides, last year he could barely shoot, and now he appears much more confident ... The Italian team he plays for runs a wide open offense which has really helped his game ... Extremely long limbs ... Since adding 10-15 pounds in the past year, he is less afraid of playing physical ... His ball handling and passing ability are his strengths ... Really excels handling the ball ... His defense has improved, always looking for steals, and quickly turns them into fast break opportunities ... Attacks the rim well with excellent leaping ability and body control.

Weaknesses: Last year he lacked intensity, but he has improved upon it ... Lacks a tremendous offensive feel ... Tends to use his athleticism to his advantage, maybe too much, which he wont be able to do against American players ... Still must improve his offensive game a lot ... Some have doubts about his leadership ability ... His ability to shoot off the dribble is in question ... His midrange game needs a lot of work ... Lacks range on his shot.

Quincy Douby 6-3, 175 Sr.
Strengths: Lights out 3 point shooter with excellent range ... One of the top scorers on the college level (top scorer in the Big East conference as a junior at 24 ppg) ... Has a great feel for the offensive game ... Effortless release on his shot ... Excellent free throw shooter ... His game has shown steady improvement ... Has gotten stronger body wise but still lacks bulk and body strength ... Has become adept at anticipating passes and making steals ... Very streaky shooter, when he gets hot he is deadly ... Proved in his sophomore year that he has the ability to protect the ball and be a distributor (as his 2/1 A/TO ratio shows) ... Has a good ability to create shots for himself with deft ball handling ability.

Weaknesses: Lacks an NBA body, his frame wont allow him to put on much weight ... Not a true point guard, so he is a small 2 guard ... Will be limited to being a scoring role player in the NBA ... He'll be a defensive liability on the next level due to his size and strength ... Not a great passer, but decent ... Not an explosive athlete but has good quickness ... A bit one dimensional has a hard time contributing when he's not scoring.

Point Guards

Mardy Collins 6-6, 205 Sr.
Strengths: At 6-6 he's got the ability to run the show from the point guard position ... Very smooth offensive abilities ... Plays a controlled game, doesn't try to be too flashy or make spectacular plays, keeps it simple and effective ... Excellent vision and passing ... Shooting mechanics and fundamentals are very good ... Good ball handler ... Long arms help out with closing passing lanes and getting to the rim ... Good defender coming out of the Temple system which emphasizes defense ... Excellent at anticipating passes, ball hawking style ... Great team player, excellent versatility ... Extremely durable player, plays almost 40 minutes every game, and rarely if ever misses a start.

Weaknesses: Never a bigtime scorer, although the Temple system limits him somewhat in that regard ... Shooting %s have never been great from outside, although these numbers get hurt by collapsing defenses and forced shots taken with the shot clock running low ... Lacks a very athletic body, especially on appearance ... Not a very physical player, should use his size advantage better offensively ... Not a huge leaper, lacks great explosiveness or a devastating first step ... Upside is decent, but not off the charts ... One of those guys who is solid in a number of areas, but fails to stand out in any one area ... Must become better at moving without the ball, can be a little too ball dependant ... Free throw shooting is below average.

Sergio Rodriguez 6-3, 180 1986
Strengths:For Sergio Rodriquez, the nickname "Spanish Magician" wasn't given, it was earned ... His imaginitive, charismatic, off the wall playing style combined with innate leadership abilities, has earned him not only respect, but the interest of many NBA scouts ... Owns a variety of offense weapons, but is at his best when breaking down defenders with his lethal crossover, or feeding a teammate for an easy basket ... Incredible quickness and ball handling ability make taking any defender 1-1 appear effortless ... Most impressive is his ability to find the open teammate in traffic ... He has the uncanny ability to see passing lanes before they open up, thus enabling him to nearly always make the right decision with the ball. While not incredibly gifted athletically, Sergio always finds a way to get the shot up, or draw the foul when around the basket ... Hits open shots, especially in the clutch, and shoots the three ball well enough to keep any defender honest ... Absolutely loves to run the fast break, using his extreme quickness and good finishing ability to convert most of the time ... Quickness and anticipation make him a capable ball hawk, as well as a solid off the ball defender ... His nickname (The Spanish Magician) fits him well, sometimes it appears the moves he makes, and the passes he fires, aren't real ... This kid has a world of talent, and just must continue to develop.

Weaknesses: Not really a physical marvel (6'3, 170 lbs.) as his explosiveness is just average ... Not very strong and can still be pushed around by the bigger guards ... Still prone to being careless with the ball, and can get carried away trying to entertain, making impossible passes, or trying to force a three when a smart play is needed ... Often goes for the flashy play instead of the simple, smart, play Also could use some work on defense, mostly staying fundamental and exerting the same intensity and effort ... Outside jump shot also needs some fine tuning, it is very formidable now, but shot selection and shooting percentage both need improvement.

Jordon Farmer 6-2, 171 So.
Strengths: True point guard with excellent vision and passing ability ... Has a great feel for the game, with the ability to elevate the level of play of his teammates ... Amazing creativity and anticipation ... Sees plays before they develop, finds teammates the instant they become open, the mark of a great passer ... Ball handling ability is superb ... Very good shooter with range ... Uses change of speeds well ... Good quickness, gets into the lane and by defenders well ... Has a bag of tricks offensively with a nasty crossover and good ability to pull up for shots when open ... Plays solid team defense, reads passing lanes for steals.

Weaknesses: Athleticism and strength could be an issue for him in the NBA ... Lacks great body strength, not a physical specimen type but has some leaping ability and quickness ... A big or real physical guard can push him around ... Turnover prone, can get caught up trying to be too fancy ... Makes a lot of spectacular passes, but in trying to do so makes a lot of turnovers ... Small hands seem to make him more prone to turnovers ... Lacks explosiveness and finishing ability around the basket ... Not especially long or tall, cant see over defenses and must make ball fakes to get passes over or around bigger defenders.

Kyle Lowry 6-0, 185 So.
Strengths: Can get anywhere on the floor whenever he wants ... His heart and passion for the game put him on an elite level rarely seen in today's spoiled basketball players ... Rebounding ability is an unusual attribute for a 6-0 guard ... His ability to lock in and defend makes in special as well ... Extremely quick hands and feet, he is incredibly disruptive on the defensive end ...He plays so hard it is difficult to know where he is on the court at all times, just ask Raymond Felton who got all he wanted in the Sweet 16 last year ... His reputation as a winner is unparalleled and his will to win is as strong as they come ... Natural floor general with the ability to get players shots with his quick decision making ... Very physical, he's able to use his great body strength to overpower guards on both ends of the floor.

Weaknesses: His jumper off the dribble has been one of the few knocks to his game ... Must develop more cosnisistency on his outside shot ... At 6' foot he is a bit undersized, but plays much bigger ... Having come off a slight ACL tear last year his knee recovered faster than I have ever seen or heard a player come back from an injury like that and play productively that same year. So the strength of that knee will be something to watch throughout his career ... His temper and his ability to keep his emotions in check could prevent him from being a heady floor leader if he allows his emotions to get the best of him.

Rajon Rondo 6-2, 171 So.
Strengths: A lightning quick point guard with the ability to penetrate seemingliy at will. Has incredible body control and takes the ball to the basket and finishes exceptionally well for a PG. He has a scorers mentality, but also passes the ball well especially on the dribble drive. Owns great ball handling skills which become lethal combined with his quickness. Many people thought he was the best player on his high school team that included Josh Smith (drafted 17th by Atlanta Hawks in 2004). He has progressed into a solid shooter, that combined with his quickness has made him a very difficult player to defend.

Weaknesses: Still must develop a better basketball understanding. Could stand to put on some weight and add some muscle mass. His outside shot has become better but with improvement in this area, defenders will have to respect that facet of his game which will make it impossible to keep him from getting into the lane. Still must become more under control as he can become erratic at times. His defense still must improve. Must learn to be a complete point guard with the ability to dictate the tempo and get everyone involved.

I want a lightning quick point guard with the ability to penetrate seemingly at will, with incredible body control and ability to take the ball to the basket and finish exceptionally well.


06-26-2006, 08:55 AM
I want a lightning quick point guard with the ability to penetrate seemingly at will, with incredible body control and ability to take the ball to the basket and finish exceptionally well.


I want all that too, but I also want this player to have enough of an outside shot that defenses will not play off of him and dare him to take a shot. I like Rondo too, but he really needs to work on the shot. Also, I have not heard anything about his work ethic. His game needs some work, and I would hate to take another project that has a poor work ethic.

Frank Slade
06-26-2006, 09:14 AM
I went with the Consensus , Rondo, although I doubt here is there at 17
in Which Case I would Go either Famar, or Shawne Williams

06-26-2006, 09:53 AM
Pretty sure not all of those players will be available once we pick at 17, but I think Rondo is the biggest talent on your board so that's who I went with.

Other realistic possibilities include Douby, Collins, Sefolosha, Ager, Williams, and Armstrong.

06-26-2006, 11:04 AM
I went with Farmar. And I'd just like everyone to know that this mock draft is rigged!!!

06-26-2006, 11:07 AM
Thabo will be there...i dont think Rondo will be.

06-26-2006, 11:24 AM
Thabo will be there...i dont think Rondo will be.

Mr. Basketball, what is the meaning of your signature?


06-26-2006, 11:32 AM
I went with Rando.

Trader Joe
06-26-2006, 12:00 PM
Rondo is a STEAL here. Farmar is more likely to be available.

06-26-2006, 12:13 PM
Farmer--with a name like that he just has to play for Indiana.

Steve McQueen
06-26-2006, 12:27 PM
It's pronounced FAR-MAR, atleast he claims it is. He's probably just ashamed to be called farmer :\

06-26-2006, 01:09 PM
Rondo seems like the most obvious fit for us of those listed, but I didn't see a great number of these players much this year anyway.

I'm a bit wary of a Runi/Rondo combo at the point, though. Defensively, that could hurt.

06-26-2006, 01:25 PM
I went with Farmar. And I'd just like everyone to know that this mock draft is rigged!!!
You're just upset cuz Sene and Armstrong were picked already....:rolleyes:

06-26-2006, 01:25 PM

It's Dingodat8urbaby.

Dingo that ate your baby.

I know a very similiar line from Seinfeld, but it's also from another show/movie.

Elaine says "A dingo ate your baby?"

06-26-2006, 01:46 PM
The "maybe a dingo ate your baby" line stems from an real life story in which a woman was sent to jail for killing her child. Her defense was that a dingo had taken the child during the night. A couple years later some of the childs clothing was found in a dingo den (I think they live in dens) and the woman was released. Meryl Streep was in a movie about it called A Cry in the Dark.

I'm pretty sure Rondo is known for his quality defense.

You haven't read much about Rondo then. That rotation has some potential to it. Rondo is one of the best defensive players in this draft hands down.

06-26-2006, 08:06 PM
I'd be okay with Collins. Not much to get excited about, though.

06-26-2006, 08:41 PM
Does anyone have an informed opinion of Kyle Lowry? From everything I've read he sounds like a very intriguing player.

06-26-2006, 08:56 PM
sergio rodriguez?

They've already told you, but yeah, its Dingo Dat 8 UR Baby

Its my screen name for Halo2

06-27-2006, 07:47 AM
I prefer in this order:



Collins? (Maybe but 17 seems too high.)

Not that interested in:

Farmar (Sorry! No good basketball oriented reason. Something about the guy just bugs the hell out of me.)

06-27-2006, 08:48 AM
I picked Rondo.

Here's the current poll from pacers.com:

McClintic Sphere
06-27-2006, 08:58 AM
I'm going to say Rodriquez because of Bird's Continental fetish.

06-27-2006, 09:16 AM
This should perhaps be a separate thread, but I'll pose it here.

Are there any draft possibilities that have a better chance of fitting into Carlisle's system or that have a better chance of getting enough playing time to help the team this year?

Rondo is a wild man -- an athlete first. Will Carlisle put him on the floor? Wouldn't Collins hve a better chance of playing under Mr. Control?

Jack starts for us and plays all the time, so I don't see that being a problem.

06-27-2006, 11:19 AM
Jack isn't a rookie.

06-27-2006, 11:33 AM
Jack isn't a rookie.

That's debatable.

Rondo was just made available...come on now...
