does anybody have a scouting report on CJ MCollum since this site doesn't have one? Whats his Pro Potential and Upside? What are differences and similarities in McCollum and Lillards game?
Also what are your thoughts on McCollum possibly missing the season with his broken foot?
His pro potential to me is a Lou Williams type of player. He will be an electric sixthan that every team would love to have on their bench.
A more athletic Steph Curry. He looks 6'3 with a good wingspan, I'm guessing anywhere around 6'6 to 6'9. Like Steph he isn't a pure PG, but equipped and smart of enough to run it. In Golden State a lot of the time they will take Steph off the ball and let Jarret Jack run the show. I've noticed them doing that late in games during critical moments.
shaka smart said on saturday that McCollum is bettery that curry
Wait a minute you guys CJ is very good but you guys are saying that he's better than one of if not the best shooter in the league, who is also averaging 20 points a game???
Talent wise CJ McCollum is more talented that both Lillard and Curry and a much better and committed defender.
For me personally, yes. I'm not arguing that he is one the best shooters in the league. I just believe he has more overall talent and will ultimately be the better player.
He reminds me of Randy Foye (before the knee injury) when he was coming out of Villanova. It's too bad Foye lost quite a few of his explosiveness with knee injuries, but that's who McCollum reminds me of.
I would pick him in the top ten. Watching him play against Duke, I thought this kid is the real deal. He is smooth in control and can shoot in a spot up or off the dribble. He knows how to get to the rim.
Yea, prototypical small scoring SG. He can shoot, play some defense and get to the rim. I dont think he is a full time point guard right now. He is kind of like chauncy billups in that he will be able to score right away, but he wont be able to run offence and make plays for other players right away, but if he develops he could be an average starting point guard for an NBA team if not he should be a quality sixth or 7th man
i dont see why he cant be a strarting shooting guard when guys like lou williams, randy foye, jason terry, avery bradley, monta ellis, willie green, and bradley beal all stand at 6'3 or under
How do you guys think his latest injury will affect his draft stock? I'd love as a Suns fan for Phoenix to draft him especially if Goodwin, McLemore, Muhammad are gone
I've done a few. I think his stock will be hurt for the moment, but he could be a guy who drops right back into the top 10-12 with a full recovery and a few good games to end the year.
He's a very well rounded scorer, who can not only hit deep shots, but get to the rim. There was a post last week about how good of a 3 point shooter he is, but he's much more than an Eddie House or Ben Gordon at the next level. 3 point attemtps only make up about 30% of his shots and he gets to the line 6.5 times a game, and was over 7 his soph and junior years. He does it all, I think he'd be best suited for a 6th man role, but he's a guy who could be a starter too. I think he has a bright future with a ceiling of a 15-17 ppg 4 rpg 4 apg player.
