I’d be happy with either one too. Just have to say that I love watching Wallace play defense. He’s really something else and is one of those guys that can just straight up disrespectfully rip the ball away from guys for steals, which is one of the coolest plays in basketball to me.I really like both, and think they both might have a chance to be really good. They are both great defenders, I think Cason is better than Black, but Black is probably capable of defending more positions.
Cason projects to be at least an average offensive player, who you have to at least guard. I personally think he could be even better than that. Black potentially is a guy who you can't play because his offense is so bad, although I think he'll figure it out.
Your continued bewilderment on people liking Cason is particularly amusing as you have admitted to only watching one game of his. I invite you to compare his NCAA performances vs anyone else in the draft not named Jordan Hawkins.
Black would be in my top 10 list for the Jazz, but I think someone higher on my list will be available to us. I wouldn't say being in anyone's top 10 is hating on him.I mean three guys were just asked who they would want at 9 and not a single one mentioned Black.
Not sure how people can be so high on Cason as the 9th pick but not Black. Makes no sense. Though not my first choice, I’d still rather have black over Cason at 9.
I watched some highlights of Rupert. There were a bunch where he drove to the basket. The defense collapsed and he kept finding the open man. He also split and passed through nicely double teams. There is something unique and good there. Man..he would have been a great pairing with Donovan.New mind-blowing take:
Ryan Rupert is the rich man's Anthony Black. He has NBA starter ball handling and passing. His shooting is improving but if you are handling the ball you have gravity.. I would target him as a PG for the Jazz within the realm of realistic draft possibilities
Better defense than black. Better ball handling. Better passing. Way better shooter.
Ryan said he was shoe horned to play 3 and D but his natural tendency is point guard.
If this is true I think I like him better than Cason and Black. He might be a sleeper.
