Why doesn't he get more rebounds?

At 6-11, 250, you'd think he'd get more than 5.4 boards a game.

I think in the NBA he will

I think in the NBA he will be more like a Troy Murphy, definately not a KG or Rashard Lewis. He is too slow.

troy murphy?

hello? how do you figure he will be like troy murphy? the word is spelled DEFINITELY. and he will definitely not be troy murphy. check out monroe's youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkobJjBaLig. i think it will show you why myself and 100 other scouts felt he was one of the best seniors in the country last year. the kid can do it all, just because nbadraft.net dropped him so much before the SEASON EVEN STARTED. does not mean that his career will mirror troy murphy.

Better Than Most Anticipated

Greg Monroe has shown that he is more mature, polished, and aggressive than most people thought of him in high school. This kid was once considered the # 1 prospect by Rivals.com, for the 2008 High School Recruiting Class. I definitely think he's a one and done and with more coaching and learning, I believe he can become the next Chris Webber. Monroe is 6'10, just like C-Webb, got a big muscular frame already at 250, just like C-Webb before he got to the NBA, he's a great passer for a big man just like C-Webb, he's fast and nibble on his feet like C-Webb, with some very nice footwork in the lowpost, got handle like a guard and his range extends to the three point line, just like C-Webb, he can dominate if he wants to, but choices to defer a lot to his teammates just like C-Webb, and he carries a label of being soft just like C-Webb, let's just hope he doesn't have knee problems in the future, just like C-Webb. lol With all said, I defenitely see Greg Monroe being a top 5 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft.

Monroe

I see Greg Monroe as more of a lamarcus aldridge type player. A guy that can play facing up, attack the basket off the dribble and pass the ball. I think Monroe will most likely be a high lotto pick, not a top 5 pick.

I agree

I think the LaMarcus Aldridge comparison is pretty accurate. Obviously his face up game ability are evident. But what he really proved against a very good Connecticut team are the inaccuracies of his weaknesses listed on his player profile. He hit some outside jumpers, including 2 3-pointers. He also displayed a few nice post moves on the 7-3, athletic, strong Hasheem Thabeet showing that he can bang down low while executing nice post moves. In this big conference game on the road, he showed tremendous poise and concentration. I think it's the system more so why he does not have big rebounding numbers. He still does lead the team in this category, nonetheless. His passing game is similar to that of Brad Miller, not flashy ala a Chris Weber. He seriously should be considered a lottery pick in this year's draft. He should be no worse than a Jason Thompson, who was a lottery pick and last time I checked, is a pretty good NBA player in his own right.

Greg MANroe

I like the CWebb comparison. He's probably better than Jason Thompson.

idk

It's hard to say. His jumper is no where near LaMarcus Aldridge, but he has that high post skillset like LaMarcus tho. I don't think Monroe is so "scared to bang" like Lamarcus is. Chris Webber had that great PF skillset, plus he would bang on people. Monroe actually has a handle tho, so I would probably say Chris Bosh more than anyone (without the mid-range jumper)

Greg Monroe

He reminds me most of a Chris Bosh. Right now he is skinny like bosh but still has the mobility that Bosh shows and both the good inside and outside game. I gotta say though he has a big frame and give this kid 20 pounds of muscle and he could be dominate like a dwight howard type. No ones like Dwight hes a straight beast, but he could be something like that if he adds muscle kids only 19-20.

Much stronger than Aldridge,

Much stronger than Aldridge, but not as polished with his post moves and jump shot. But I like that comparison.

NBA

Teammates Malik Hairston and Maarty Luenen unexpectedly heard their names called but Taylor didn’t.
Chat Sohbet Muhabbet Egitim Egitim eJJe Egitim ATATURK Ruya Tabirleri
Siirler Hikayeler Fikralar Programlar Guzel Sozler Resimler freetemplates Taylor was arguably Oregon’s best player last season, but his 6-foot-4 frame makes him a undersized at the next level. Nonetheless, his scoring ability, length and athleticism give him a chance to make in in the league.
