    Which explains why they have the Jazz taking Sullinger # 10. How many guys can play in the front court at one time again? Al Jeff, Kanter, Favors, Milsap, and Sulllinger? Please.

    March Madness...one of the best times of the year...though it always reminds me of what we should be watching in these college games...

    Kyrie Irving, Derek Williams, Enes Kanter, Tristan Thompson, Brandon Knight, Kemba Walker, Iman Shumpert, Jon Wall, Derek Favors, Demarcus Cousins, Greg Monroe, Aminu, Paul George, Tyreke Evans, Demar Derozan, Brandon Jennings, Jrue Holiday, many others,

    Those are all names that we would be watching in the tournament now, if staying in school was still the norm.

    You can also add all the big names that are in college now, that we are watching, such as Sullinger, Barnes, Drummond, Davis, Rivers, etc...and we would be watching a plethora of stars, and some ridiculous competition. There is a reason why not many people watch NCAA basketball anymore, and that is because the talent level has significantly dropped since 1 and dones have become the norm for talented players.

    If the Jazz make the Playoffs and we get their Pick, what about Terence Ross? Any thoughts about him? I watched him only once, not enough to say something about him.

    I have to be honest, I have watched a total of 5 minutes of college ball this year outside Iowa (who has no prospects).

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Is it true that Austin Rivers is going pro...wonder where he would go in draft. Is he a point or a 2 guard.

    he is a SG. Most sites have him around when we would pick if Utah gets in the playoffs.

    Royce White has declared his intentions to enter the draft. Some of you may remember him a the prized recruit from Minnesota the Gophers got a couple seasons back, then released him from scholarship, due to robbing the mall of america, and stealing labtops. He then went to Iowa State, and beasted.

    I decided to check out a mock draft and looked in the 15-20 range and sure enough Ross was there. So I thought I'd check ou his player profile and guess who they compare him to - Wes Johnson. The description was very much the same as well about a guy with a smooth jumper that doesn't dribble much but has perfect size for the position.

    Honestly, I don't know much about the draft prospects this year and really am not thrilled about anyone yet beyond the top where you have Drummond, Barnes, ect.

    Our best hopes this year are probably free agency and, more likely, the development of Wes and Williams.

    as of this moment utah is in the playoffs and minny has the #16 pick - hoopsworld has us taking sg dion waiters from syracuse! they have terrence ross going #21 (the wes johnson comparison has killed his draft stock! right now if wes were in the draft he would be a low 1st round pick)

    If you had to choose between these six sg who would you choose?

    Austin Rivers - Jeremy Lamb - Dion Waiters - Terrence Ross- John Jenkins - Doron Lamb


    Austin Rivers - 6'4" - Fr - Duke
    Rivers was considered a potential top overall pick a year ago. But he's not a true point guard and is undersized at the 2. He has a tendency to become too focused on isolating (tunnel vision) and scoring as opposed to taking what the defense gives him and facilitating for others. Regardless, he will excel in pick and roll situations and is tremendous at splitting double teams with his yo-yo handle.

    Jeremy Lamb - 6'5 - So - UConn
    Lamb has really refined his pull-up game off the dribble, a weapon that often propels players to the next level. He needs get tougher both mentally and physically as he avoids contact and can be thrown off his game by bigger stronger opponents that get physical with him. It's possible a team will fall in love with his length and potential and scoop him up in the top 5, but his lack of assertiveness and personality makes him a better #2 option.

    Terrence Ross - 6'6" - So - Washington
    Ross is dangerous from outside, where he sports a clean release and sweet rhythm in catch and shoot opportunities. A smooth wing with NBA athleticism, Ross does an excellent job at stretching the floor by recognizing and occupying open space. He moves well without the ball and shows deceptive quickness with it, allowing him to get to the rim despite a shaky handle. Though Ross has been overshadowed by teammates at times, he's the most NBA ready player on a talented Husky team.

    Dion Waiters - 6'4" - So - Syracuse
    The Philly native is one of the draft's enigmas. Some love his strength, aggressiveness and ability to create offense off the dribble, while others see a player lacking a true position. Waiters is a little undersized at 6'4 and lacks point guard skills, but is able to overpower opponents with his sheer strength. He's very good in the open floor with tremendous finishing ability and is an intriguing go-to scorer.

    Doron Lamb - 6'4" - So - Kentucky
    Doron Lamb's overall skill set is not fully utilized playing on such a loaded team. Lamb has been arguably UK's most consistent performer this season. Every time the team needs a big basket, it seems that Lamb answers the call. He's a clutch performer, has underrated PG ability (he played the position in high school) and is an excellent teammate. Finding a niche at the next level should be his primary focus, with "lights out shooting combo-guard" a realistic role to think about.

    John Jenkins - 6'4" - Jr - Vanderbilt
    Jenkins is the top shooter on the college level. He has expanded his all around game with improved ball handling. He's an undersized 2, but his versatility and elite outside shooting should give him a role in the NBA. Lacking ideal athleticism, Jenkins isn't getting a ton of buzz from NBA scouts and could ultimately be forced to return for his senior year, but what team couldn't use a deadly shooting specialist?

    Dion Waiters doent impress me to much. And being as he is from Syracuse, I am impressed even less. Players that do interest me, that may be available with out pick include...

    Moe Harless, SF from St Johns. Do it all player (including D) from a position that is intended to do it all.

    Terrence Jones, SF from Kentucky. See above statement.

    John Jenkins, SG from Vanderbilt. Undersized, but lights out shooter.

    Tony Wroten, SG from Washington. Does everything well, but shoot.

    Royce White, PF from Iowa State. I know, I know, do we really need another PF? absolutely. The goal is to have Derrick Williams play the 3, and we are set to lose AR and AT, which would leave us without a primary backup to KLove. Royce White will do everything for your team. He lead Iowa State in points, rebounds, blocked shots, assists, and FG percentage.

    Fab Melo still interests me. Ideal size, and plays very good defense. the Syracuse rule does not apply to him, as he plays a big man position.

    William Buford interests me as well. May fall to the 2nd round, just because he is a senior.

    really though guys...Royce White. He may fall because of his off court issues, and because he is too scared to fly in planes, but man, what a talent.

    I'd like to see us take Jeremy Lamb from Uconn if he's available.. He's got great length and I think we a PG like Rubio coming back for next year I think that would only make Lamb so much better.. And we need a SG obviously so I think he could become a great player for us
