I got you.
If anyone could make them I would really appreciate it, first game i missed all year and I heard he looked good. 14pt 6ast and 3-4 from 3, nice.
I got you.
I like basketball
Wow I love the drive and dish. He is gonna make a pg after all
He's making the transition from Hero Baller to pass first PG just fine.
Yeah I definitely like what I saw here. His first step and dribble is impressive. Like others said, it's too early to get excited, but I'm glad to see him improving, especially while displaying a PG skillset.
There's was one play where rivers was in Isolation at the top of the key with Griffin, he was moving the ball so fast and with a head fake I was almost sure Blake would've broken his ankles...
You can see that he still falls down too much on simple layups or drive and kicks. That only tells me that if he can make his body chiseled like say in a D-Rose mold it's going to take his game to the next level.
He can already get into the lane at will. He's just too weak right now to finish.
Yeah he needs to learn how to finish, but I'm definite seeing a lack of explosiveness from him. While I think he could become a descent pro, his ceiling isn't all that high...
rivers quickness kinda reminds me of a mixture of allen iverson and OJ mayo
All i wana know is when my son gona dunk
He's quick off the dribble, but not too explosive going to the rack. I don't see alot of elevation either when he attacks rim. That's one of the reasons he's better suited for the PG role instead of SG.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
He's not explosive off the ground. Pretty sure anyone can see and acknowledge that. But I still remember somebody saying he's not athletic at all.
If you don't throw down on people's heads you aren't athletic. It's the Blake Griffin NBA rule.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.
I think he has a chance to be a Manu, Harden type 6th man for us and a perennial 6th man of the year contender. He can be backup both the 1 and the 2 and I think in 2 years he can average 15-6-4 off the bench which would be huge for us.
If we play this draft and this up coming FA right and plug in the correct starters there is a chance we can have a great starting lineup, one of the most talented in the entire NBA to go along with a bench that features Greives Vasquez, Austin Rivers, Jason Smith and Ryan Andersen!!! Draft Poythress or Poter, sign Jeff Teague, sign Nokola Pekovic.
Jeff Teague/Greives Vasquez
Eric Gordon/Austin Rivers/Roger Mason Jr.
Otto Porter/Al Farouq Aminu/Darius Miller
Antony Davis/Ryan Anderson
Nikola Pekovic/Jason Smith/Robin Lopez
1,2,4,5 postions are just loaded and the 3 position has 3 solid, young developing players. Its crazy to think just how good this team can be based on our position right now in terms of the assets we have to go along with the flexibility we have going into FA.

He was described as a long jumper more than a high jumper. He's quick off and with the ball in his hands. He should get more explosive if he puts some time in the weight room. I remember that he only did 1 repetition at bench press. He's going to get more athletic but he won't be D-Rose.
Curry is a good comparison to me. He may already be better in penetration than Curry.

Just needs to finish better. Develop his left hand because he has a great R->L crossover. Even with the right from the left side, should make more than he does because he's getting good looks there.
