Parkers Duke lost to an unseeded Wake Forest tonight.
Parker had a decent game shooting 7-11, 19 pts, 10 rebounds but another so so defensive game. Also i'am not sure about his capabilities in the clutch. Tonight was a perfect game for him to take over and lead a comeback. For a prospect like him, i have seen very few clutch performances so far
TJ Warren has been much more clutch this season
7-11 is a "decent" shooting game? I guess 11-11 would've been more impressive....
TJ Warren is having a nice Linsanity-like run but if a team does draft him before the 20's, they're reaching.
Careful there triboy, your bias is showing.
Naw I think your the bias one. And like many over hyping this kid. A super prospect should be able to carry his team over an unseeded team. At least a few times
List some games this season where he literally carried his team onto a win.
This is why Danny is not excited. At least wiggins has had a few clutch games vs duke as one of them and embiids excuse is that he is a center and is still new to the game. Whats parkers excuse?
College basketball is pretty tough for players that get their team going by breaking defenders down off the dribble because of the zone.
Parker is a far superior 1v1 player and his game translates to 'superstar' much more than TJ Warren.
He's a better shooter, has better footwork, and is two years younger.
He's carried that Duke team multiple times this season as a freshman. Wiggins is on a team of 'college stars' so he should be destroying his opponents more often than not.
TJ Warren is great, if I had a knock on him it's his shooting form and his slow release might hurt him being defended by NBA length. Could be like Harrison Barnes, with slightly less athleticism but better shooting touch and BBall IQ.
Just to add re. Parker...I don't know where you got the 'Danny's not interested' in Parker thing from but he's been interested in Parker since he was 14 years old, sitting next to his mom in multiple games.
Hard to see him taking anyone over Parker other than Embid.
We can use our Clippers pick on someone like Warren if they're the best player available at the late teens pick from the Nets.
Personally Id like Danny to trade the Brooklyn pick with a team around the 20-24 spot who'll give us a 2nd rounder so we can roll the dice on Chris Walker.
