Jeff Teague or Harden? I like Teague he averaged 18 points a game last year and shot 44 percent from three. That is lights out from downtown. He is quicker off the dribble and more creative. I do think Harden is the better passer, but we are talking about scoring. This is not based on draft order just scoring. Who is more explosive?
Explosive? Obviously Teague, but overall better scorer is probably Harden.
I think James Harden will. But Teague could go Jason Terry and average 20 per. I'm interested to see other responses.
Thats who he reminded me off, with more shake n bake JASON TERRY JEFF TEAGUE GREAT COMPARO
I believe Harden is the more polished player and due to his height and great wingspan he will be able to score more easily. Harden is underrated and he will definitely provide points every night to any team who will draft him. Possibly could be as good as B Roy but hopefully can recover from that horror tourney. Wizards need him as he will be much better than Stevenson and can help Agent Zero like Larry Hughes did. Cmon when they were tgether they were an explosive backcourt. Shame bout Larry
We'll trade Larry back for Caron.
That would ruin the Knick's plan for having no one on their roster when 2010 free agent season comes...... but add in Wilson Chandler and will do... he looks like a good prospect. and i want Curry to NYC would be awesome to watch and hopefully knick fans wont boo at a draft for once at their own pick.
Teague will have a more "explosive" highlight reel, but likely Harden will score more NBA points when all is said and done.
I like the fact that Harden is long and strong enough to play SF, just in case he can't handle SG.
Teague will need to be in the right situation, as a 6'1.5" scorer. He'll need an Eric Snow to his "Iverson", or to play in a system where a shoot-first PG works. Harden should be able to fit in with a greater variety of roster situations.
Teague will have to learn to be a point guard because that AI Stuff is going out of style.
I was joking about that trade but I love Butler. You must not pay attention to the knicks fans when we pick. We boo alot. Balkman and Gallo both got killed. I'll be there.
I live in Arizona and I am a big ASU fan. I love Harden and think he will be a great all around player in the NBA. That said, I think Teague has the ability to be a more prolific SCORER in the NBA. Teague is very quick and athletic and will be able to take the ball to the hole and finish or draw fouls with consistency in the NBA. He also has a decent shot and therefor I feel like he has the potential to be a great scorer in the league.
The problem is I think Teague will struggle with other parts of his game at the next level and Harden will excel. Teague is a 2 guard in a point guards body and isn't going to be great at running an offense and getting teammates involved in the game. He is also too small to play 2 guard as he won't be able to defend against them. There are a few of these kinds of players in the NBA who can score at a high rate but are consistently exposed in the other areas of their game and they become a struggle to know what to do with them.
This is where Harden is a great player. He can score, rebound, defend, play defense, shoot fairly well, take the ball to the hole a bit and get his teammates involved in the game. He is one of those players where the sum is better than the parts. He isn't going to be a prolific scorer in the league, but he really doesn't have a weakness in his game and will make any team that he goes to better because of his versatility and balanced game.
He will play taller than that 6ft2. He will play that wingspan 6ft7. I think Harden will be solid I think Teague will be explosive.
Teague has comparable length to SG Ben Gordon and better length than former Bobcats rotation SG Matt Carroll and Magic SG JJ Redick. However, Teague doesn't have the weight/bulk to go with it--yet.
He is more like Jason Tery than like those guys anyways. None of those guys except Gordon are even good at handling the ball. Teague has crazy handle.
i think Derozan would be more explosive scoring if he could live to his potential and become a better shooter rather than just depending on his athleticism to score.
Imagine an awesome dunking ability + a consistent Jumper = explosive scoring ability.
what do you think??
Derozan will bust
i say Derozan IF he could live up to his potential and develop a consistent jumper.
Well then I say McClinton IF he can actually get drafted, stay on a team, get any playing time, work into a starting role, star in some commercials, eats his Wheaties, and isnt a bust.
Derozan isnt even in this` conversation UNTIL he gets any kind of jumpshot, works on his ballhandling ability, gets some fire, and did I mention get a jumpshot?
You can make a case for anyone in the draft IF everything goes right.
If based on just scoring, then its a push for me. Harden was consistent throughout the year up until conf. and natl. tournament time, whereas Teague was lighting everyone up, but faltered down the stretch, along with the rest of the Demon Deacons. The versatility each bring is pretty good, Harden is a bonafide 2 who can slide over to SF and Teague is a tweener that needs to further his PG skills to be even more valuable
Harden will be more efficient.
Teague will be a better scorer. I dont think Harden will be a great scorer in the NBA, maybe around 15 ppg max but I see Teague putting up 20 ppg at his peak. I like Teague's game
No Doubt DeRozan can be a better player than both of these guys. He already has the mid range game that the others need. Will gain the other tools and will be an all-star.
