Do any of you even think he can pull of playin SF part time? i mean his 3 ball is decent but its ugly as hell. and i doubt he can even hang on the perimeter on defense with even the lower class athletes that play the 3 in the league.
He's more suited to playing inside. He's a little undersized for an NBA post player, but tell that to Jason Maxiell. He'll get his minutes one way or another but his ball handling is ugly (at least it was when I saw him in Pauley Pavilion this year, but that was the same game where he got a dunk stuffed by Nikola Dragovic, so probably just an off day).
Only Maxiell is athletic and long and Harangody has average athleticism and is stumpy. He could shed a few pounds too. I remember when they played Georgetown, Monroe ate him alive, he was too tall, long and athletic for Harangody to handle...
I Like Luke. He's got a high skill set. No one thinks he can be a Mat Harpring type? He's a match up guy. puit him in the gam when someone like Peja is in.
Hmm, forgot about Harpring-like guys, maybe there is a place for him...still needs to shave a few pounds off though, just like DeJuan Blair
He is just like Hansbrough, thats pretty much it.
He is a poor athlete and he wont be able to survive in the NBA. He is short, isnt a good athlete, and doesnt hav perimeter skills. At least not anywhere near NBA Level
Thats funny how you say that. But yeah Luke is not making any NBA team.
He reminds me of a Lonny Baxter with a jump shot. If he can consistantly make jump shots, someone will find a spot for him on the end of their bench.
Lonny Baxter was a bit slimmer and had some crazy long arms unlike Luke.
