I have only seen the highlights, but he looks like a tweener to me. That is going to really hold him back. Not quick enough to play SF and not big enough for PF.
isn't that what they said about bird? nowitzki?
Or Sabonis was too slow or injured to be a good center?
McDermott doesn't have Nowitzki or Bird's size or skill level. They also said Adam was too slow and unathletic to make and they were right.
how do you know this?? Nobody knew Bird was going to be good even after college until he showed everyone in the nba , the same domination. I understand skepticism that these type of "white" players are once in a lifetime kind of players.
I never once thought this about luke babbitt nor adam morrison. Morrison runs like he has a gimp leg. And the only thing he can basically do well is shoot, and in the nba if he is wide open. Mcdermott i agree has no business what he is doing in college, but the bottom line is he does it. Results after results and all of a sudden in the nba he is going to tank??
I personally hope he stops playing now or misses the rest of the year with a minor injury bc the more he keeps producing the more he is going to climb past where we could pick him up.
Watch this clip. How are you going to stop a guy who in matter of milliseconds just shoots jumpers over you even though your pressed up in his face?? And if you press up too hard will drive with either hand and finish around the basket with accuracy. Plus if he can develop a dribble and pull up jumper on top of his deadly 3 point shooting, it will be a nightmare for whoever defends him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIhMoOHpvRg
I know defense is going to be his weakest link. He might have to cheat the drive in the nba against sf's, or figure something else out. I wouldn't worry bc he will work his butt off anyways.
