I think that both will be very good NBA players and All-Stars (Bazz and McLemore), but I feel like Shabazz will be the better player. Shabazz has a very good jumper, can create his own shot, has a very strong body (6-6 225), is very athletic and can score in a variety of ways. I really like McLemore as he's pretty athletic and a fantastic shooter. I'm not going to call him the next Ray Allen, because in EVERY draft someone is labeled as the next Ray Allen lol. It's really not fair to any prospect to be compared to perhaps the best pure shooter of all time. The only thing that I am a bit concerned with is McLemore's ability to create his own shot. Every game I have watched and every highlight video I have watched it is just littered with him coming off screens... nothing wrong with that as playing off ball is a lost art and can be VERY valuable if you are highly skilled at it, but I'd like to see him create his own offense. We need someone that can kind of share the ball with Kemba as we know that he's not a super skilled playmaker right now (and we're not sure if he will ever be -- although I think that he has the potential to lead us to a championship as our starting PG).
I'll have to disagree with you. I'm not bashing you or starting sissy fights though.
I just see McLemore as the more athletic player compare to Bazz. Bazz also doesn't wow me with his dribbling skills. McLemore has eyes popping athletic ablities and an incredible elevation.
I'm not great at scouting, but McLemore's release look at lot like Ray. I really think its a very good comparison.
McLemore is also a team player; has no ego. I think he's a perfect fit in our very young team.
Bazz makes too many bad shots. He also isn't as good a defender as Ben. Seem like it's just a lack of effort on his part though.
