This is great for our pick. If Jackson emerges as a legitimate top pick contender it becomes more valuable. Maybe its now considered a 3 person draft.

Several of us (cfan60's, triboy, me, among a few others) have been touting this kid for over a month.

Jackson is a basketball player. Very high IQ. Even when he is having an off game he still figures out how to help the team. Really hope we draft him. My one worry is that he will rise to become the consensus number 1 pick, and we wont hold the pick.  Almost wishing he would have a bad game and exit tourney early. Lay low in the weeds. Ha ha.

 ;D

exactly... Jackson just looks more explosive than anyone else on the floor, plus bbiq plus skills....

seriously he is not even breaking a sweat so far in this tourney

there were a few games this season where I saw him really stepping up in intensity and those ones either involved scouts attending games and or Graham, Mason Jr. struggling

i mean he doesn't take plays off anyways...but just knowing he has a afterburn button he can hit at any point...

rim-protection and 3 point range are not really part of Jacksons skill set as far as Im concerned.

Skill set means he has the ability to do these skills, just because he can't perform some of them on a high level NOW doesn't mean down the road he won't be elite at either.

Yea its an on again off again flame thread where people talk about how their binkies are better than Fultz. Alot of Fultz supporters have kind of moved on in regards to how good Fultz is. Everybody knows he is good at everything.

Except winning, let the excuses begin and they ignore his knees.   

I would have liked to see him in the Tourney but his team did not make it there.   There are other young teams that made it.   So nix that one, the team not being good is one that I hear most in regards to their poor record.
What notable guys that ended up winning it all (besides the super stacked UK and Duke teams) in college, and became star players in the NBA?

I watched that entire Kansas game. It's pretty hard not to fall in love with Jackson. I think he's better than Ball at this point. I'd still take Fultz, but Wouldn't be upset if we took Jackson. I mean he really wasn't breaking a sweat out there. Funny thing is that Kevin O'Connor believes his shooting is a mirage. I don't understand why he doesn't believe in Jacksons shooting ability. It looks pretty sweet to me.
They didn't "lose" Teague -- they got rid of him because Schroder made him redundant. Other than that, they replaced Horford with Howard. Injuries or no injuries, our roster is not any more superior than it was last season. Probably less.

Some good information here:

"Jackson and Bridges are such incredible athletes that the minor flaws in their physical dimensions — Jackson’s lack of strength, Bridges’s lack of length — aren’t normally a huge issue. However, they were both exposed when they were forced to go up against someone who was just as athletic as they were. Once they get to the NBA, that will happen all the time."

"According to the tracking numbers at Synergy Sports, Jackson is averaging 0.882 points per possession in the post, putting him in the 60th percentile of college players, and that number could go even higher if he’s playing as a small forward in the NBA, where he’ll face shorter defenders."

I posted this question in the Jayson Tatum thread.  Note that I like Jackson over Tatum:

First off, I really like Jayson Tatum and am psyched that he may be our worse case scenario.

It sounds like people are thinking Tatum is an NBA power forward.  Am I right on that?  Because I've also read here that Josh Jackson is a wing and Jaylen is a better fit to play 4 than Josh.

Tatum is 6'8" and 205 lbs, averaging 16.8 points, 7.3 reb, 45% FG% and 34% 3FG%.
http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4065648/jayson-tatum

Jackson is 6'8", 207 lbs, averaging 16.6 points, 7.1 reb, 52% FG% and 38% 3FG%.
http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/player/_/id/4066297/josh-jackson

I always saw Tatum as a small forward, and I didn't even know how close the stats were between them except for Jackson's better passing and Tatum's better FT shooting.  Do people think he's more of a PF, and if so, why is hardly no one saying Jackson can be a PF with the same physical measurements, a high FG%, lower FT%, and nearly identical scoring and rebounding #'s?

Not only that, almost 39% from 3 point range on the season.  And he hit some fantastic turnaround jumpers that I'm dying to see consistently from Jaylen.  I honestly wonder if the mirage is GMs are putting out this info about doubting his shooting, because Tatum is shooting 34% and I'm not hearing anyone questioning his 3PT shooting nearly as loudly.  He's been shooting like 50% for nearly as much of the year as he shot 28%, and against better teams too.

I dont think either are power forwards. They can play it in some matchups but its not something they will play full time.
