As someone that has seen both Marcus Smart and Ben Mclemore this season in person I'm wonder who everyone thinks is the best scoring gaurd in the country an how their game will translate too the league
In college CJ mcCollum, in the league, it's either bazz or Ben Mac; Marcus Smarts scoring has been streaky
It will all depend on where the go I just don't believe in bazz as much as most but his talent is off the charts
I'm a big fan of Bazz, yes he was out of shape but he still is putting up 17 points in an offense that doesn't let one guy score a ton, plus his jumpshot has gotten WAY much better; Ben Mac is just soo smooth, I think he is a safer pick than bazz as teams will always need shooters and defenders, his game is alot like Ray Allen as he has the silky smooth jumpshot, is a good rebounder for his size like Ray, and is a very good passer. His athleticism is off the charts as well
Hand down , no disrespect to Ben Mac, but i truly believe Shabazz has the it factor and will shine in the NBA..
It's Shabazz, even though he has more of a SF's game. He can score from every level of the floor. Not only that but he can score points in a hurry without even dominating the ball because of his ability to get easy shots via transition buckets, quick post ups, flashes in the paint, cuts, putbacks, etc.
Archie Goodwin has a very good chance. I think he will end up better than Smart.
C.J. McCollum is the best scoring guard in college basketball.
I think his game will translate just fine, he is not a pure point guard, but he has good ball handling ability and a high IQ. I think he may be suited for a bench role, but a dynamic one, like James Harden when he was with OKC or a Jamal Crawford type player. He can score in bunches, has a strong frame and can shoot off screens, the dribble, and can take his man to the hoop. He's a jack of all trades guard, and I think he'll be a 15-17 ppg scorer when he peaks in the NBA.
Probably lower than Shabazz or Ben McLemore's career high in the NBA, but the question was the best scoring guard in college basketball, and I think he is easily the most complete.
CJ reminds me alot of Lou Williams.
definatly shabazz. he has been on fire the last 3 games because he is back in shape finally and he has had time to mesh with his teammates. he is averaging near 20 a game( 18.8 ppg to be exact). he will be the first pick in the draft in my opinion.
