    Well, Archie is a freshman in college with only 5 games on his resume and we're comparing him to an NBA guy ... but here's what I would say..

    Archie is more explosive (first step) and has a quicker release. I have stressed this point, but dude is lightning fast. The vid shows Sprewell knocking down a bunch of perimeter shots .. Archie drilling them so far but his history in HS suggests his %'s will come down. Archie is only 5 of 7 from 3 so far this year, so obviously too small of a sample size to have any opinion. However, he's hitting VERY tough shots, shots that I think have no prayer, but he's hitting them time after time.

    Wanting to see another 5 games, but I suspect he's going to keep it up and keep getting better. Calipari is pushing him harder and spending more time with him than anyone else on the team.

    Can Noels and Poythress please be nicknamed Kid N Play? Badass. Also, I don't see the elite athleticism in Goodwin of which you speak and that Westbrook and Wade have. Just don't see it. Just my dumb opinion though.

    Opinions can obviously vary. He's almost identical to Wall as a freshman. His size, speed, athleticism, and craftiness going to the rim. He's just more slanted to scoring and Wall was more slanted to passing.. Otherwise their games are eerily similar.

    I saw very, very few plays with Goodwin attacking the rim or dunking. Wall did that all the time.

    I guess you'd have to watch the games. The highlights spread it around too much. Archie had back-to-back 25+pt games where that's nearly all he did, at will.
    I'm not defending him, btw, but what I am saying is accurate.

    I have been saying Archie needs better decision-making, Poythress needs to play hard consistently, Noel needs strength, etc. Point is, I'm not just being a homer .. Archie just has the speed, craftiness, and nasty factor that is very rare in a freshman..

    I hope we draft Archie and then let him sit on the shelf for a couple of years behind Veterans X, Y and Z.

    How are his handles? I thought Burks was suppose to be a good ball handler, but his handles seem really loose to me, kind of like Hayward's.
    Pray for White Chocolate, he was born without a brain.

    Very good, imo. Very similar to Wall. He's not flashy with the ball but dribbles into traffic, takes contact, and finishes. He's turning it over very little considering he's new to running PG.
