    Since you could find it faster than I could, maybe you could at least direct me to it?

    Once conference play starts I will start paying more attention to College Ball and will have a better idea about these dudes.

    Lillard's success is quite the anomaly (seniors rarely storm to the top of ROTY discussions, the same goes for coming from a small school). Being driven to grab the "next Lillard" 30 games into his career, and being such an anomaly, seems pretty knee-jerk to me.

    That's all.

    With the success of not only Lillard, but guys like Curry and Lin etc. I think NBA teams are more willing to give small school players the benefit of the doubt. At any rate, I think his success against big schools helps dispel the small school argument.

    When it comes to McCollum, I think it's more worth discussing his ability to play PG in the NBA than his level of competition.

    Ability is totally reliant on the level of difficulty. His ability to play PG has yet to be vetted to most people's liking.

    The "etc" for me is George Hill. If McCollum can play some decent defense and open the floor up with his shot he would be the best choice for PG in the draft.

    George Hill would be helping the Jazz immensely right now if he was playing for them.

    There are some okay PG prospects. I'm sticking to my guns from 2010 .. no one real good until '14. (obviously didn't see Lillard coming on back then .. so missed him, for sure)

    In my original post on 'Bazz I stated I wanted to see if he could become a team player, more than just simply a scorer. I had no doubt he could score. I compared him to Jodie Meeks (in college) who led the nation in PPG but got no rebounds, assists, etc.. (didn't really help the team win games other than putting up points)
    Bazz will be very good, no matter, but his level of greatness will depend on how much he embraces 'team' and I think the jury is still out on that one.

    Yep, he sucks.
    I was kidding. I just looked up his stats. They're very impressive actually. Based on stats, he's the kind of guy you win with. Sort of why I loved Parsons when he came out. Could do everything and do it well.

    My concern in looking at Porter's numbers is his natural ability to score. His scoring is low (that's always sort of a give-in on a JT3 team I know) so my major concern without seeing him is his ability to dribble and/or penetrate and/or get to the rim. Anyone know how he is in that regard?

    Also, do JT3 players come out early often? I feel like they don't.

    I'm not looking for a superstar, just someone who can run the offense, has a shot that needs to be respected and can at least slow people down on defense.

    Is that asking too much?

    I agree but 10.3 assists, 3+ steals, 4+ rebounds, and elite defense is hard to pass up. Especially since he could guard 1's (Westbrook, Rose, etc.) and 2's (Kobe, etc.) potentially.

    I question his athleticism and that is what he will need for defending all those guys you just mentioned.

    It may be. It also may not be asking for enough. Ponder that one.
