The Professor is 5'11?Looks shorter than that...

Anyway I saw some video, was him having fun against somebody in a studio, his shots were pretty bad.I'm not gonna judge by just that though.

Actually During the Pistons Media Day Online chat, Will Bynum said hes only 5'6 but all websites list him at 5'11 :speechless:

Comparing Bynum to the other players and the guy at the end of the video, I would guess hes about 5'8.

it will be alot easier for streetballers to get into the nba now that the nba has allowed the two-step its something alston got in troublefor alot early in his career and now its legal soo if anybodys looking for a creative point guard then they should scout some of the streetballers now

Yes but when you're 5'11 and 150 pounds and you don't play defense... that's a problem.

Which is the case of the Proffesor.

touche my friend, the smaller you are the better you have to be on defense(thats my motto)

while we're kinda on the topic of height...

how tall is chris paul REALLY?

judging by his build and stature on the court, i'd say 5'10 max.

Is he really a 6 footer?

The Professor is shorter,lighter and a worse defender than Quinn is

Some streetball legends...

Hot Sauce
AO
Escalade (Big guy, but maybe a little to big...Mark Jackson's little brother)
Main Event (Best Shot to make it)

Those would have the best shot

streetbalers are not good for nba.

too much self centered too much me first too much showboating too few team play concepts too much athleticism but too low Iq too many handling but too few court vision.

No way, there's a reason why they're not playing in the nba. Not saying that streetball guys aren't skilled, but really... working on crazy crossovers is cool, but you can't do it in the nba and it almost will never work on a nba caliber player in an nba game. You can't just get some player off the steet and average 20 and 10. I agree that it would be easier for them to make it now, since the game has changed so much... but even so its slim to none.

AO was in the D-League a couple years ago, I know Special FX and Helicopter played D-1 basketball, I always liked Main Events game but not sure what that equates to. I also think Springs has nba speed but not sure if he would have to play point or can defend at that level. I remember someone saying Go Get It he had the best chance at making the league and Shaq told Baby Shaq he should be in the league but its Shaq sooo.

Raymond Lewis could have been the best shooter to ever play in the NBA, had he not been blackballed by a bunch of racist owners who wanted to pay a lesser-talented, white Doug Collins more money. Despite that, Lewis should have just bit his tongue, played through his contract and then got a bigger on once the league realized how good he was.

I'm surprised Rafer is still in the league...therefore, I don't think any of them are good enough. He's the one streetballer who game was actually NBA level good. He had all the intangibles. But he still sucks.
