Topic #1: Trey Burke. I L-O-V-E, love Trey Burke. LOVE him. I think he's going to be a great NBA starting point-guard. He might never get to Chris Paul's level, but I think he's going to be an all-star, or at least a borderline all-star / top 50 player. For some reason, he's currently only projected as the #25 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft by nbadraft.net; and he wasn't even projected to be a first round pick in the 2012 NBA draft. I don't get it!? I'm a die-hard Michigan fan, so I'm a little worried that my personal bias is causing me to see something that's not there - and I'd like to hear some feedback from other posters on him. People think that he's too small? He's 6-0, 185 (w/ a 6-5 wing-span). Which, of course, means that he's almost the exact same size as CP3 (but heavier - stronger - and with a longer wing-span). I think he's as quick and fast as any point guard currently in the NBA, outside of Nate Robinson - who's just a complete freak. He handles the ball as well at full-speed as anyone I've ever seen, outside of Derrick Rose - who, again, is just a complete freak in that regard. He's one of the best ball-handlers I've ever seen. He seems to have the ability to go wherever he wants to on the court without the threat of being ripped - I've actually never seen anyone with equal ability in that regard. He's incredible absorbing contact, making awkward shots, and getting tough points around the rim when his team needs him to. He's one of the best outside shooters in the nation. He's so quick, and such a threat to drive, that he can create space for mid-range jumpers as well as anyone in the nation. Even though he's small, he's so quick and strong - and dedicated - that he's a great defender as well. Though he's never had to go up against a truly elite point guard, I've never seen anyone get the best of him on offense. The intangibles are off the charts as well. He's an incredibly hard worker - his improvement over the last two years, from a lowly regarded 3-star prospect to what we see today, is just flat out insane. He's put on so much muscle mass too. He's a great kid, comes from a great family, never gets into real trouble (Beilein suspended him for a pre-season game this season, due to something harmless I'm sure). He's an incredible leader and teammate - he was the man from day one as a true freshman last season; all his teammates liked and respected him..followed him. And he's at his best when it matters most. A truly clutch player. End of games or whenever the rest of the team goes cold, he steps it up, carries his team, and gets done what needs to get done. Such a smart player and manager of the offense as well. Always makes the right pass. A true, true-point-guard. Brandon Knight is not a true-point guard. There's a lot of potential to like about Knight - and he's a great kid too. He could end up being a borderline all-star / top 50 player. But, I like Burke a lot more. He's a better manager of the offense. He's a better ball-handler. He's a better passer. He's better attacking the rim. He's better shooting outside. He's better shooting mid-range. He's a better defender. He'd be an incredible pick-and-roll partner with Drummond and Monroe. He's a better athlete than Knight; and much better in transition. In fact, the only area where I think Knight is better is dunking..which, who cares. Now, if Burke somehow miraculously is available in the 20's, we've GOT to trade up from the second to get him. It's an inexpensive move, shouldn't require us to give up anything we wouldn't mind parting with. If he's a lottery pick, as I expect him to be, we might need to give up something more significant. Drummond, Monroe, and a top-10 unprotected future pick are the only things I'm not willing to part with. I wonder if a deal structured around Knight would be enough to get him?
