    Shane Larkin from Miami decided to enter the draft at the end of April. He is small at 5 foot 11 162lb looks to pass 1st but still averaged 14.5 a game. He is currently projected mid to late first round. I think if he is still available at 21 he would make a great pick.

    And FYI, Larkin most certainly does not look to pass first. Now merge this thread with the draft thread mods.

    Who cares if a seperate thread was made for this. I don't want to sift through hundreds of pages to find out what was said about one player.


    I think Larkin is an interesting prospect. He has the pedigree. He is Bary Larkin's son. I would like to see us draft him. But I think he goes before our second pick, so we would probably have to reach with the first.

    Neither major draft site seems to have anything on him. That means that people in the know think he's at best second round.

    However, considering who he's up against (Tinsley and Watson) sure, let him try out for the team.

    So, he went to Miami.....

    Anyone else concerned that he might be attracted to the 'bright lights'? (not that the thirteenth guy on the bench can worry about that sort of thing)

    Just wondering. Is there that big of a difference between Larkin and Burke. I've only seen highlights of Larkin so I could be way off.

    Larkin is only an inch shorter, seems to be a better athlete and finisher, and think of him as quicker. So I'm trying to figure out if Larkin is a bottom of the draft guy like I believe him to be why is Burke considered a top 5 prospect?

    Maybe it's passing and leadership qualities, but those are hard to scout in highlight vids.

    I guess I'm looking for clarification on this.

    It'd be hard to hate this selection at 21.

    LOL


    For starters, Burke's wingspan is 6 inches longer. Let alone his percentages, and performances throughout the season AND in MM

    I HATE that thread. It's too freaking long. I don't want to sift through 100 pages to see a highlight reel like the one above.

    During the season, I say use the Draft Thread. Now that the draft is getting closer, I am 100% behind a NEW thread for every freaking player in the draft.

    If you don't like the thread, don't click on it and don't respond and it will die.

    Can he guard anyone that's good (shouldn't be hard to overpower or be shot right over)? Can he be hidden on D (if he can't guard the smallest guy on the floor that can shoot right over the top or overpower him, it's hard to imagine having him guard bigger and stronger players even if less skilled)?

    I guess I shouldn't be expecting much, but I try to have certain standards. He had better have blazing lateral quickness and know how to use what he has or I'd be rather concerned that it would be hard for him to be much more than a career backup (which the Jazz need, but still...).

    I think I'd take Goodwin over Larkin but i don't know a lot about either. I just see that Goodwin played at UK and is 6'4 and an athlete.
