47 points vs. UNC.

Really smooth stroke. Reminds me of a Bradley Beal/Khris Middleton hybrid. Is projected to go in the 5-10 range in the draft. Wouldnt be upset one bit if the Celts pick fell a bit and we got this kid. The NBA is really lacking good shooting guards in todays game, Monk could be one of the best in the league in a couple years i think.
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

That would be dissapointing to say the least considering Monk is a projected top 10 pick in what looks like a stellar draft.

that is one heck of a performance. i wonder about his defense though.

i still think Fox  is a better prospect, better athlete and better all around game.  Monk certainly can shoot the ball though, that was impressive.

Great college game.

He can sure shoot it but I worry about his ability to get to the rim

I watched part of the game too. Comparing him to jerry west was a bit much though I thought.

Some of the hype on these guys needs to cool it a bit.  Not every one of these guys who has a great scoring game is the second coming of jesus.

He can get to the rim whenever he wants, especially in the NCAA. Bigger rim protectors in the NBA might contest his shot but theres no denying he can make the move to get there first.

My biggest problem with him is his size. For the Celtics I stay clear away from another undersized guard and if I am any other GM I am doing the same. I can't get behind your starting 2 guard being only 6 foot 3.

Ben Gordon / CJ McCollum as a player comparison. Does that sound right?

Similar types of players but I think Monk will be significantly better than those guys. He's better than Murray and Booker imo.
DKC:  Rockets
CB Draft: Memphis Grizz
Players: Klay Thompson, Jabari Parker, Aaron Gordon
Next 3 picks: 4.14, 4.15, 4.19

Monk has been playing well all season.  7 of 11 games scoring 20+ points including the games against Michigan State, UCLA and North Carolina.  He's what we wished James Young would be.

McCollum is who he reminds me of.  Might be a little bigger, longer.

 Monk is a great prospect. Worth noting though, he has a 40" vertical, however he's just  over 6'2" shoes off and has short arms, 6'3.5"

 Bradley 6'7" Wingspan
 Rozier 6'8"
 Smart 6'9"
