im not bitter. i thought he was listed a 6'3 so he is really 5'11...great. you know the shoes give you 2in. and they always give a guy an extra inch. i hope to god they put him in at PG when they play the bulls so Rose can rape him all kinds of nasty ways. Believe me I hope Jimmer can come in and dominate for us white guys but I really dont think he will be able to at this level. Do you think this was to sell tickets or because he is that good? I forgot about those two but are you comparing him to Price or Stockton? Price was a way better shooter and Stockton was a way way better player.
He measured 6'.75" without shoes and 6,2'.5 with shoes. Physically he measured right with the other top point guards in the draft. Better in some areas, worse in others but overall right in the middle. In one sentence you claim to hope "Rose can rape him all kinds of nasty" then in the next sentence hope he dominates. I'd say that's just a little contradictory. Simply put, you're making a huge leap of logic in the assumption that he was drafted simply because he is white. You have nothing but circumstance to support the accusation.
While its true that Mark Price had better percentages (except for FT%) while at GA Tech, he also had much better help. John Salley was a good NBA player, not to mention Craig Neal and Yvon Joseph who were both good college players who later got drafted into the NBA. Point is that Jimmer had no where near the help that Price did and still put up very good percentages. I don't know how good Jimmer will be in the NBA, but he earned his draft status with his play not his skin color.
I dont want him to do bad but him gaurding Rose would be kinda funny to see. I dont know why you guys cant accept the fact that he was drafted to help sell tickets not because there wasnt anybody better.
