Wow!

Girlie men is right. I'm a pretty average sized white guy with not a heck of a lot of natural physical ability and I could fucking bench press 185 twice when I was a junior in high school.

These guys want to play in the NBA? Seriously?

6'8" and 1/4. nobody plays basketball barefoot so your height without shoes is as useless a stat as they come.

Well he could rock a big 70 Kool and the Gang 'fro and be 6'11" I'm a bit more interested in wingspan which in his case is good. I'd still take him #1.

He showed some very good ball skills during the few games I saw of him (NCAA tournament). Doing well in the workouts is obviously a plus.

Prince Luc Richard Mbah a Moute no doubt made himself a million bucks or so with his strong showing in the workouts as well; some team is going to convince themselves that the fact that he can't shoot beyond 2 feet isn't a problem.

Kevin Love is about 10 times more likely to have a good NBA career than Brook Lopez, imo.

kevin love will be a very good player and potential all star if he goes to the right team.

You think? I haven't seen a ton of Love but he seems like the kind of guy who plays a smart game but will have trouble with the athletes he'll have to face in the NBA. I hope I'm wrong as I like his game on the college level.

The Knicks could probably trade down and still take Alexander. Maybe if somebody a few picks back is really in love with Gordon or Augustin or Love (if he's still there). I wouldn't trade down too far though, getting outside the top 10 it will start getting dicey.

Someone at work was talking about Love, saying that he'd been working out like an absolute madman since his season ended. He's, to me, the most intriguing player in the draft.

honestly if this was, say, pre 1994... when skill was more important than athleticism, there's no way love wouldn't be a top 5 pick. dude's built and plays like wes unseld. but the nba game has changed... american basketball has changed... we lose to teams we used to blow out 10 years ago, but hey, we look cool doing it.

if you put love on the right team in the right program with the right coach he could thrive. put him in the wrong place and he could get lost in the shuffle.

his outlet passes are a true thing of beauty. walton/unseled-esque. a true lost art.


meanwhile...

Quote:
Lenn Robbins of the NY Post recaps the Knicks workout of potential draft prospects. UCLA’s Russell Westbrook and West Virginia’s Joe Alexander seemed to be the most intriguing. Westbrook is known as a “tough defender” and was impressive in the NCAA tournament scoring 22 points against Memphis and Derrick Rose. Alexander is described as extremely athletic and is quoted by Robbins as believing he is a perfect fit for Mike D’Antoni’s system since he can ” run the court and hit the corner three”.
i'd also like to add that it's been so long since the end of the conference finals that i find myself caring less and less about the finals, and actually forgot that they started tonight.

I think they should have started on Tuesday...with the added bonus being that since Stern and the network insist on no Friday or Saturday games you could have had the extra off-day falling when the teams had to travel.

the date of the finals used to be flexible depending on the completion of the previous round... now there's so much time off it's ridiculous.

eh... i'll watch regardless but still. pretty silly
