so IF we draft McBuckets at #9....

My question is why a lineup couldn't look something like this (if we don't sign a vet SG):

PG Walker

SG MKG (think Demar Derozan)

SF Dougie Fresh

PF McBob/Zeller

C Big Al

 

Not ideal, but that's the best way I see things working out. MKG could still guard the SF if Dougie couldn't handle it.

 

not to be a jerk, but you want to swap out our crappy shooting SG for our inept shooting SF???

 

gawd, i just wish MKG would work on his jumper all offseason and make it respectable.. not even good, just respectable.. if he did that, our team would catapult forward just like it did with the Jefferson signing..

McDermott is an efficient scoring monster. MKG-McDermott would be a hell of a lot better than Hendo-MKG.

White scoring machines in college do not translate in the NBA. Ammo, Jimmer, Reddick,...all scoring machines in college but nothing in the NBA. The elite white player was Love. Dougie will, at best, be a good spot up shooter off the bench. If we are looking shooter and fill our SG role I still prefer PJ. In a few years when they do a draft do over analysis PJ will be a top 5 pick if not higher.

So will McDerm be able to create his own shot in the NBA or what? I have NEVER seen the dude play. I heard Jay Billas say he is a great athlete and understands the game. On an island will he be able to take somebody off the dribble and score?

I had a chance to catch a few Creighton games this season with Doug McDermott playing. My honest opinion on him is that he was a great college player and played for a team that his father coached. As far as him going to NBA and playing on the wing, I really believe he will definitely struggle. It's not because he is a caucasian American but it's just the way the game is played now. He doesn't have the athletic ability to keep up with the small forwards that he will match up against. He is only 6'8 so he is definitely too small to play the 4. I'm not being bias or anything like that but at best I believe he will be a shooter that comes off the bench. So I pretty much see him being a role player.

He graded out as the 12th most athletic player in the entire draft class. DX did an extended breakdown of players and McDermott ranked #1 in scoring efficiency in every category. Catch & shoot, off the dribble, off screens, etc. He averaged over 27 points per game while shooting 55% and 45% from 3. He was #1 in the country in points per shot.

Notice how everyone is comparing him to Morrison, Redick, Jimmer, etc? Those guys were all inefficient volume shooters who couldn't create their own shot. McDermott is the best scorer I've ever seen in college. People are gonna cry over this, but if he were black everyone here would be drooling over him.

Other then Wiggins and Lavine the draft class is not that much athletic.

Good enough for me. If he can catch and shoot and create his own shot with those accuracy numbers then why not draft him? Are the only negatives his college competition and skin color? We need a scorer. He's a coaches son so I assume Clifford can coach up his D. What is the argument against him?
