no one said Julius, Harrison, or other players has no issue.
I am talking about exactly what you SAID that's the problem. "can stretch out to the 3." No he can't. He made like 3 buckets out of 50 shots in the past 3 all-star game, when defense was weak.
He was highly inefficient in the 3 all-star game. He was not the MVP at jordan, even so he was awarded one. Both Randle and Niguel were better. Parker just happened to be bigger star.
Summit he wasn't trying to carry the team. He made sure we lost. He made nice run at the end. But EVERY possession counts. He shot 9 3 point shoots. Only making 1. That's how you LOSE. He didn't stretch jack.
"Jabari Parker and Julius Randle Named Co-MVPs of 2013 JBC" directly from the JBC website.. The reason the USA lost is the World had a whole week of practice and looked more like a team.. Just saying you cant really judge a guy off 3 all star games.. Ive seen the kid, he is going to be fun to watch at Dook (AND I HATE DOOK) and at the next level..
Parker's a hell of a player but like others have said the hype was premature. He's the 3rd best prospect in this class at best and personally I think Andrew Harrison is also clearly better.
Andrew Harrison is being overlooked. Best point guard prospect since Wall.
Agreed but it is strange Aaron, didn't seem to impress much IMO.
He seems a step below his twin brother.
He even commented before the game and said he was having one of those days. Aaron is one hell of a player, and you'll see that.
I said awarded. Meaning, i know he was crowned Jabari Parker. However, again...only thing they look at is points scored. If you don't think NWG played the best on that team, you are insane.
I always also question, you can't judge off all-star games. Which is partially true, but how much better can you base it off against High school competition? At least these all-star competition is more of NBA size and athleticism. Not HS competition, where you can be 6'9" and still be faster than 5'8" players on the court.
Hell, if you look at last year the way Nerlens played, Goodwin played, and poythress played. They literally told us a lot about their style player into their freshman year.
However, going back to my original point. When J. Parker learns to play a 4, then he will be a top 3 in a LOADED class. him and randle will be 2/3. Wiggins is a clear #1.
Fair points.. Like i said i think Wiggins obvi goes 1.. 2 Parker unless team needs a PG which should be Twin.. 3 Twin.. 4 Randle (didnt have a good "standing height" according to Chad Ford's tweets) for a NBA PF which should be his position.. They said Gordon had great measurables.. Not agreeing that I would take Gordon b4 Randle but i could see it happening after a year of college..
What games were you watching to assume Parker will go before Randle? Parker is not a deep threat type shooter and has shown his inability to shoot in the three games. Parker should not have won the MVP of the McD's game with Gordon because he didn't play very well in that game. He is a 4 and to compare him to Mello is crazy. Mello is a far and away better shooter than Parker the only thing they have in common are their heigths. Randle is another Zack Randolf and will go somewhere top five but I still see him going before Parker period. He will put up bigger numbers and he has fewer weaknesses. Parker is a good player but he's not the second best he's not even in my opinion the 3rd best he's somewhere between 4 and 6. Plus to say Gordon may be a better prospect than Randle is also not accurate! Gordon is what they call a tweener and yes he can run and jump but he can't shoot worth a crap Randle is bigger and can shoot, rebound and take it to the rim he will go before Gordon or Parker. Parker has a lot more weaknesses for his position but he didn't play very well and was unimpressive on both ends of the floor. Hell in the JBC all he did was play the Aaron Gordon role of look at me Ig got a run out because I'm not playing any defense. Plus Randle dominates the second half and yes he struggled in the summit game and still had 17 points. But that game Andrew Harrison was the best player for team USA and had players been able to finish he would have had a ton more assist.
Draft express must not think Parker is coming out next season because they don't have him listed at all in their 2014 mock draft. Wiggins is #1 with Randle #2.
Draft.net has Parker #2 and Randle #3.
Not sure what Chad Ford has. Those are the only 3 that anyone ever references. But many have said Draft.net isnt as reputable as the other two.
Anybody that thinks Parker is better than Randle is off their rocker. Parker is nice, don't get me wrong, but he doesn't possess that nastiness that Randle does.
Randle clearly isn't that great of a ball handler yet, but he's adequate and when he does improve he could easily play SF. However, that isn't the position he will play at UK.
All of this crap is crap. The twins will be great at Uk. The key for all of these kids will be how fast do they learn to play D on the next level. All have the Oside its the D side that makes you. The kid going AZ looks great close to the rim, its his outside game that looks iffffffy to me. Wiggs looks like a player above all others this yr. He lets the game come to him. Love to add Wiggs.
