Discussion in 'Pistons and NBA' started by Mark V, Nov 14, 2012.
Is he an ancient scientist or a future professional basketball player?
A little of both. He's like 12.
Right now we desperately need a selfish scorer on the wing, assuming he can truly light it up.
How about Corey Maggette?
Start Bynum Stuckey Maggette Monroe Drummond and watch the world implode.
Need to add another name to this thread title: Otto Porter
HoopsHype - NBA Draft - Otto Porter
Check out his boxscore against Shabazz Muhammed and UCLA: UCLA Bruins vs. Georgetown Hoyas - Box Score - November 19, 2012 - ESPN
Let's keep an eye on this kid too. Seems to be very Tayshaun Prince'esque, but with that extra little something that we all kept waiting on from Tayshaun. Looking forward to watching this kid play against Cody Zeller and Indiana tonight.
Anyone can put up impressive individual stats, but can he palm the ball in the corner for 15-20 seconds and then kick it to a guarded teammate with 1 second left on the shot clock?
It's the shots Tay doesn't take that makes him a true artist.
This guy just scored 138 points in a college game. Perhaps he could help the Pistons offense.
Jack Taylor of Grinnell drops 138 points for collegiate scoring record - ESPN
People in that gym actually had to witness this guy missing 44 three pointers in a game? Appropriately named Jack.
When your making 3's at a .483 clip, you have to take that shot.
Otto Porter struggled against Indiana. IU played a ton of zone and G'town basically passed the ball around the perimeter until someone was open long enough to chuck up a three ball. Even though he didn't have a great game, he still put together a pretty decent Boxscore: Indiana Hoosiers vs. Georgetown Hoyas - Box Score - November 20, 2012 - ESPN
Didn't see Shabazz Muhammed play against Georgia, but he did score 21 points in pretty close game, check out the number of ft attempts, pretty impressive for a freshman in just his second game, he may be like Harden and Kevin Martin in terms of having a knack for getting to the line: UCLA Bruins vs. Georgia Bulldogs - Box Score - November 20, 2012 - ESPN
I think the opposing coach made adjustments, too. After Jack nailed his 20th 3-pointer of the game, coach figured his team better start contesting that shot.
Of all people, Melo had to be the one to call out the kid for being a chucker.
...Like Melo's never thought about taking 100+ shots before.
College basketball has become a guard's game - ESPN
5 guards, full court pressure, shots every 12 seconds, 3pt shooting, frequent platooning subs.
Joe had that vision only it was 5 SF's, no pressure, shots every 24.5 seconds
A kid on the other team scored 70 points in a losing effort.
"We definitely made it a focus to stop him," said the kid that scored 138.
Good thing they focused on stopping that guy or he might have put up 100 in a losing effort.
Otto Porter against Mount St.Mary's: 17 points on 7/8 shooting and 1/1 from beyond the arc. 13 Rebounds, 2 asts, a steal and 2 blocks. TO's.
This kid is a player, I think he may end up being a better version of Danny Granger. He doesn't appear to be an offensive force, but Georgetown doesn't exactly run a system that allows a players total game to come shining through.
Anyone that can put up 17 points against Mount St. Mary's can ball, in my book. By the way, I think you spelled his first name backwards.
I posted this on another thread-
I wouldn't mind seeing Shabazz attacking the basket while Knight and Singler stretch the floor. That kid can flat out get to the rim. I think that he'll be among NBA leaders in FTA per game. I like McAdoo, but he feels like a tweener- can't shoot well enough to play 3, can't rebound well enough for the 4. He feels like a poor man's Antawn Jamison. I'm intrigued by Otto Porter. He can just play ball. He's a natural passer. He's shown a huge improvement in his perimeter shooting. He could be a bonafide stopper in the NBA.
Alex Len and Archie Goodwin are players to watch. Len was a beast against Kentucky.
