I usually don't watch college but since you brought it to our attention I'm glad I can see who he is.

Not impressed yet again with Thabeet. He is "comfortable" with his height though but if this draft was deeper he would go in the same range Hibbert went last year maybe higher. I'd rather see us take Aldrich with our 2nd pick then Thabeet with our first.

..........as soon as I turned there I got a call so I didn't get a chance to see him. Saw plenty of Hansborough though.

I didn't get to see it till I made the post but he made stupid mistakes and wasn't at all changing the game. Potential is there it is just one huge gap between where he is now.

In the highlights they showed 2 blocks he had and said he was a beast in the middle yeah he didn't have great numbers with only 10 pts 3 rebounds and 3 assists. I think he got in foul trouble.

Where is Hansbrough projected to be drafted?

Its funny, I hear about him all the time related to college,but when it comes to the draft, I havent heard squat about him.

Not trying to be ignorant, I just dont pay ALOT of attention to College B Ball.

Mid to late first round, closer to late I'm guessing.

Really?

Dang, I thought he was going to be great. I guess he is a little undersized.

Hansborough is garbage he shoots so many shots where her barely jumps he is gonna get blocked like crazy. The only way I see him doing well on the next level is if he can become a better shooter. Plus he is a ballhog and almost refuses to pass when he gets the ball.

Hansborough doesn't translate into the pros very well. He is way undersized, and not a good athlete. Thabeet does not impress me. If we pick him early, it will be yet another mistake. He is, at best, a high lottery pick in my mind. But then again, so are almost everyone else outside Rubio, Holladay, and Griffin. No depth in this draft.

I wouldnt mind drafting thabeet at all, hes huge and could plug that middle pretty well, KFAN was talking about drafting him and just training him to be a defensive specialist, im all for it.
Why is everyone talking about taking Cole in this draft, i can come close to guarenteeing he wont come out early.

Why? I want a reason.

Hanbrough is a talened Mark Madsen... the guy will be an energy boost off the bench nothing more

Thabeet is going to be raw offensively for some years but he can be Dikembe Mutombo like during his career.

I still would rather get Holiday for our PG of the future than a defensive center

I agree and thought about that same exact comparison with Madsen. If we don't get Holiday if he doesn't come out I would like to see us take a chance Flynn.

haha, talented Mark Madsen. Perfect comparison, but Tyler is even shorter.
