    Joel Embid is changing every shot out there today. His defense has improved so much. He is so much better from early in the season.



    Wichita State is going to go undefeated. I kept saying they have a much better team this year. I didnt think they would make it through non conference unbeaten now that they did I have a hard time seeing any team in the Valley beating them.


    Also Selden's and Wiggin's defense on Smart today has been fantastic.

    Also have the Utah vs UCLA game on the other game Delon Wright really reminds me of Andre Miller just solid. He isnt a good NBA athlete and his lateral quickness will hurt him defensively but a lot of offensive talent and does a lot of dirty work. He actually moves a lot like his brother.

    Kyle Anderson is really really good.

    Utah cross matched so they never really guarded each other.

    He was a monster today. Smart was great in the second half for OSU

    Semja is a beast! He is my favorite player to watch kid is a warrior. The quiet killer. Averaging 24 in his last 5 games. 22 pts on 61% shooting with elite defense in big east play. I love his game. He could be a star at the NBA level if he learns to shoot.

    Embiid:

    "I was curious because I want to be great, I want to be the best at my position one day," he said. "I'm trying to learn everything and what other people did. All of the great big men went to college at least two or three years. I think it's a big factor. I don't know if it will always work, but I think it's the best choice."
    http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...-best-freshman

    I've been an Embiid fan since the Champions Classic thing, but I feel like another year could suit him very well. I don't want to see him rushed to the NBA, and reading the article it sounds like he is a guy who would benefit from having another year of college.

    His body language is awful and he isn't very smart in terms of bball IQ IMO. He has played better the last few game, but I am not on board yet. His defense is what is most disappointing IMO.

    Nik Stauskas has some Lance Stephenson swag to him this year. Kid is playing with so much energy and you can tell he is having fun trying to win.

    I would expect most to have Vonleh over Doug. I have Vonleh much higher than Doug. Although I am beginning to believe Doug can be a really useful NBA player(Have been on the fence for a while on how he translates still don't like him as a starter, but he should have a place).


    Vonleh is special he is on another level prospect wise IMO. We aren't talking about college skill. We are talking about how each translates to the NBA. Vonleh has a game that will translate perfect in the NBA.

    Delon Wright is playing well tonight this Arizona vs Utah game is fun. Good defensive battle. I like how both teams play. I love Zona, but damn Utah impresses me 4 really good offensive players. Loveridge Tucker and Wright are really fun to watch.

    Nick Johnson is unbelievable such a good defender and with moves like that he is terrific on the offensive end.


    Ashley, Jefferson. Gordon, Tark, McConell, Johnson, might be the best collection of defenders I have seen at the college level

    If Vonleh stays another year though, he good get a Blake Griffin climb to number 1 in 2015. He needs strength in the post and he can't screen or seal that well.

    People act like there isn't player development in the NBA. Every player has some flaws and arent ready to be great from day one, he should go top 10 in the draft. Plus there is very little chance he goes #1 next year I like Okafor and Turner more. I think Okafor and him have similar games though.


    Doing 3hrs of individual work with NBA coaches every day will improve your skills just as much as staying in college(if not more so). If he is mentally ready he should come out.

    EDIT: Honestly if I was Vonleh I would want to get out of IU, they aren't using him very well IMO. He doesn't get the ball in places he should IMO, and a lot of that comes down to Crean's offense. (not much reason to seal when the coaches wants to dribble drive all day, and not get the ball in the post. He isnt really being ask to seal. I guarantee you if he was in the Pacers offense his sealing and post play with look a lot better.)

    Dakich is killing the Harrison's and for good reason. They are in full whine mode tonight. I can't stand their energy and lack of enthusiasm add in the complaining it is just hard to watch them play.



    I really love all 3 of LSU bigs they are one of the most talented front courts in the nation.

    Wiggins has really learned to compete he has played so hard tonight.

    Chris Walker at FLA has been cleared to play be waiting for that all season. Kind of hard to fit him in mid conference season, but im sure Billy will make it work.


    I am leaning toward Wiggins being the #1 on my board, he impacts the game in so many way elite elite defender and an elite rebounder. Still a lot of ball left to be played but he is very impactful.

    Embid just got a offensive rebound being held and exploded for a dunk what a quick leap.


    also notice Ryan Carr is at the game dude has the life being a scouting director.


    J. Riddell ‏@Joshua_Riddell 3m
    Andrew Wiggins is going to become Exhibit A as to why you should wait to evaluate freshmen for at least 15 games

    I have been saying this all season it was just lol how people try to predict things so early. Let the kids play and then evaluate after we have a reasonable sample size.

    It's been said that this upcoming draft is very deep. I think that some of the Players that the Pacers scout and think has the potential to be a very solid NBA Player will fall to the 2nd round and that Bird will trade up to get him.

    I'm calling it now….perhaps due to lack of hope cuz I see the possibility of losing Lance….but I think that Bird and his scouts will find another "diamond in the rough" in this upcoming years draft. It's not uncommon for some Players that are ranked high for some reason to fall to the 2nd round for whatever reasons.

    Well….at least…this is what I am tying to convince myself of.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    PJ Hairston is making me think what could of been at UNC this year. I have been watching him play in the Dleague. He is the best player in the Dleague right now. I was a big fan of his when he played at UNC good 2 way player.

    Had class tonight , getting caught up on this Iowa st Okst game wow what a game entering double OT now. This is just fun basketball. Niang fouling out I don't know how Iowa st is staying in this. They have talent all over, but he had been terrific this game. Iowa st is really deep and really unselfish fun to watch.

    Kane vs Smart has been so fun to watch. I bet the Pacers end up with someone like Melvin Ejim if we pick late 2nd. Undersized, but productive college player maybe a guy like Talib Zanna slim pickens so late in the draft.

    Also so happy LeBryan Nash has morphed into the type of player I wanted him to be. They played through him all OT guy has become a real threat in the post. Glad he went away from thinking and playing like he is a 3.
