Michigan looks VERY impressive every time I watch them. Burke is the best PG I've seen in the nation, Hardaway can score at 3 levels now and is more than a shooter, Robinson Jr is versatile and reminds of Terrence Jones but with more of a smarter mind and McGary is a nice physical athlete who competes. I watched them 3 times this year and they have a Final 4 team who can play ANY style. And their guard play is good....you need good guards to be a title contender
am i the only one who thinks cj leslie plays to fast
He's just not a smart player, never has been. He can force the issue at this level because he's more athletic than just about anyone, but he won't be able to get away with half the stuff he does at the next level. He doesn't even have a position in the NBA.
Who's the best prospect playing in this game to you J?
Glenn Robinson Big Dog Jr is the best pro prospect on this team.....maybe in the big ten.......he has a pro game already. Pump fake one dribble shot up, bottoms. Of the curl one dribble step back. He has pro moves that he does effortlessly. He has nice size, good athletism, frame is going to fill out and has long arms like his dad........watch out for him as the season goes on!
I think the best prospect is Trey Burke, he's a very solid all around player and prospect. Lorenzo Brown has crazy potential, but his IQ isn't that good to me.
Interesting, a lot of guys don't think he'll transition well (although I'm not one of them). I'm definitely on the Rodney Purvis and Glen Robinson III bandwagons.
Leslie plays his game based solely on being quicker than his matchup
Purvis is an aggressive scorer, with nice quickness but he'll need time though.
Robinson is gonna need to round out his skills and learn the game but he can be a major mismatch
trey burke is a top 5 college player (or will be at the end of the yr)... but i think hes a late first round pick.... leslie has to get bigger to play the 4 full time in the nba... game is still raw... but damn he is explosive
"but i think hes a late first round pick"
get that pic out of your avatar... you're not a burke fan
ahah... i love his game but personally im not taking him in the lotto or nothing like that...
i understand not lotto but late first rounder?...
i'll just use a quote from Burke... "All haters will be silenced...Trust Me"
I don't see Leslie translating well on the next level, I used to think the same of Burk but he's changing my mind with every game I watch of him. Robinson Jr. could end up the best prospect on the floor tonight but too early to tell.
@official... im not into 6'0'' PG's in the nba... burke can ball his ass out. no doubt.. but he doesnt have a great skill... hes a good shooter, good passer, solid athlete, all around game is good... if he had cat like quickness i would be more high on him...
not great skill?.... ummmm what?
one of the bst passers in cbb. one of the best ball handlers. wet shot, even off the dribble. finishes at the rim with amazing soft touch.
Burke looks like a mid first rounder too me. His stock should rise if he continues good play. I remember someone on this board compared him to CP3; I do see some parts of Cp3's game in Burke; but his size is what's going to limit him at the next level
that was me bud
in a weak draft he can def. go around the 17-22 area... just in general i would take him in the 24 range and later... hes just a small guy that doesnt have one great skill to compensate for that size... its just the truth.. and i love trey burke....
am i the only one who thinks stauskas will be the best player from this michigan team. obviously not this year, and maybe not even next year. but down the road when all these guys are in the NBA, stauskas will be that guy. love his game.
Maybe for a short stretch. They're bringing in a talented class next year as well, including the very underrated Zak Irvin.
I've told my friend about Burke and i tell him his 6'0 size is a major issues; then he brings up the CP3 comparison due to his size. CP3 is a rare breed with out of this world skill sets; His skill sets can make you look over his height. I've always compared CP3 and Drew Brees both are undersized for their positions but are rare when it comes to ability. Not every 6'0 pg is gonna be chris paul and not every 6'0 QB is going to be Drew Brees
Stauskas can SHOOT well
Read an article about stauskas during the offseason. One of the coachs from michigan was raving about what an underrated prospect he was, and how he could get to and finish at the rim alot better then people thought. He also went on to speak of his shooting as he hit something like 78 out of 100 threes in a drill they were running. I think this kid is gonna be a lights out shooter, his form and size are at the pro level (6'6" 205) hes shooting 58 percent from three so far this season.
Stauskas is a beast man! Dude can play all over the place and every time that ball leaves his hands you think its going in. He will be a very very good player for Michigan as time goes on. I mean he already is very good right now but still. As for Burke his game reminds me alot of Jameer Nelsons when he was in college. He beats everyone off the dribble, finds teammates and can score when needed. I just dont know how his game will translate to the pro though I hope he's a stud but you can never tell with size like that.
Trey Burke - Mike Conley
Lorenzo Brown - Jeremy Lin
Tim Hardaway Jr - Courtney Lee
Rodney Purvis - Jerryd Bayless
Glenn Robinson - rich man Brandon Rush
CJ Leslie - i'm sad for him for wasting that world class talent in his own hands, what a shame... has no dedication to the game, no constant effort, no work ethic, no willingness to be great, too bad!
the best pro prospect on the court was Trey Burke, he's got all NBA potential, he's a small guard but he's a bulldog on defense and has all-world quickness
Michigan & Indiana have been the 2 most impressive teams ive seen so far...At the start of the season,i felt Michigan would be a top 15 team,but they now look like a team that Can win it all...
When Mitch McGary gets more seasoning,he's going to be SCARY!!!!
Is really a dynamic player/scorer i love watching this guy. He really exudes confidence. They have a great team, with alot of skilled players on the perimeter. Hardaway looks good going to the cup this year. Love Lil Big Dawg. In the past I havent been high on Mich because I never really liked the coaches system , but this year with all this talent hes mde a lot of adjustments or maybe its the enefit of having a pg as good as Burke.
CJ Leslie has improved his face up game dramatically since his freshman season. From what I have seen he has never shown any interest in oprating as a back to the basket so why try now. He has improved his slashing game a quite a bit bit especially in crowded ares. I think hell do better in the nba where there is more space. Hell always be an athletic player opposed to skill but he can definately be effective in the league with the right point guard.
