I can see him being a top 3 pick depending on which team is picking early. I can see the Kings or Cavaliers going with Irving if they land the first pick.

A buddy of mine whose opinion I really respect describes Irving as Andre Miller with a jump shot, which I think is a good description.

He actually thinks Terrence Jones is the best player in the draft.

Comes across as Chris Bosh 2.0.

Reminds me more of Lamar Odom

He actually has some pretty badass handles for a guy his size that would allow him to play on the wing. He's definitely interesting.

Same here.
Here's a highlight reel of Jonas Valanciunas. Mind you, everyone looks good in a highlight reel, but I like his motor and how he knows when he's bigger than someone and uses that to his advantage. He's what Andris Biedrins should be, except I think he'll be a little bigger in terms of weight.

That game was a good example of why I think Sullinger is going to have some difficulty in the NBA. He had a very hard time getting a decent shot off against a guy that was close to his size, and there are a lot of those in the NBA.

I don't agree with the May comparison though. He has a much better nose for the ball on the boards.

He is very wide and has good soft hands but his style of play is suspect around athletic NBA big men IMO

I dunno how accurate that is.

But just looking at the graphs, I would rather have Knight. That graph makes him appear to be a more complete basketball player and much better suited to the championship styles of basketball you see from the big teams rather than transitional basketball played by say the Suns.
Sullinger is staying at OSU

Duke's Kyrie Irving will enter the 2011 NBA Draft. He's the odds on favorite for the No. 1 pick in the draft. http://t.co/jHMBDG4
i'm still on the harrison barnes hype

John Hensen and Tyler Zeller announce they are returning to school next year!!!!!!!! Harrison Barnes still has not decided but from all reports he is leaning toward staying at UNC as well. I have my doubts about him returning since he should def be a top 5 pick if he comes out but who knows the lure of being a UNC legend, winning a national title, the other 2 coming back + 2 big time freshmen coming in and the fact that Barnes will be the best player in the nation next season along w/Sullinger may just be enough to lure the kid back.

GO HEELS!
