Yup, said all along Harris's shot is as good as Respert's. Hopefully, he stays for at least two years, but can you imagine this guy at State as a senior? He'd break every scoring record in the books and make them untouchable.
Where's Bilas in the vid? WTF?
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Jay's was on tv, so it was live this morning. Harris made his top 5 list as the fifth freshman.
The will to succeed is important, but what's more important is the will to prepare.
Nix isn't 6'11"
It doesn't matter. In the 2012 NBA Draft, 3 out of 5 of the top lottery picks are undersized (Beal,Waiters, and Robinson). There are plenty more in the first round. Click on the players' names and read some of the weaknesses (needs to develop a jumpshot, inconsistent jumpshot, glitch in jumpshot, needs to tighten up handle...etc). They all have weaknesses to work on.
No different from MSU's players. They draft whomever they like basically. One of the lottery picks couldn't 't perform we'll among D1-level talent, yet he was drafted.
Good news! With this thread, tRCMB has now officially named every member of our starting five as draft picks this year. No word on Trice's status yet.
To be fair though, Beal, Waiters, and Robinson are super athletic and Robinson has a jump shot. I don't think Nix will be drafted but I could see him in the NBA in 2-3 years.
Harris is the youngest player on the team. It's pretty obvious he can go from excellent to spectacular in his second year as a Spartan. The difference in money from #30 (his current projection) to say, #15 is massive. The smart business deciscion would be to compare his potential draft position this year vs. next year. He is not the kind of player who is going to have flaws revealed and lose draft position by staying. He can have his cake and eat it too - staying can be a smart business decision and he can have his number in the rafters after only 2 years like Magic.
Harris does something that I like.
From an opponent's point of view, he scares me.
I think every opponent, when they see Harris squaring up and releasing a 3-pointer is going, "Ohhh S**t!"
I did not think Harris would be as deadly accurate from the 3 point line as he has become. Watching him in the McD's AA game, he looked very uncertain of his shot. Maybe it was just the jitters. I expected to see a little more athleticism from him, however, mostly based upon his amazing HS highlight videos. I think as he mature physically we will see more. I knew he was the real deal, however, when I watched him lock down 2013 #1 prospect Andrew Wiggins during second half of Nike Summit game. Yeah, I know Wiggins scored alot of points in that game, but not during the second half while I was watching, as Harris was forcing him into TO's and an airball among some misses.
Harris is MSU's best player.
Harris reminds me of Ray Allen a lot. Smooth jumpers, similar athleticism and even their demeanor on the court.
I am gravely disappointed. Again you have made me unleash my dogs of war.
Here it is, it was recently posted to ESPN's website:
I went to a game of his last year and saw a couple others on TV last year. The game I saw in person, he scored 30some was 13-14 from the field and everything was from inside the paint (fast breaks, put backs, drives to basket), he took one outside shot, which was his only miss. Even during warm ups, he didn't have that great a shot before the game I saw. He really surprised me with his outside shot this year.
