You can jump off it quick...

 

Some GM's said they wouldn't be surprised if he fell out of the lottery...

 

People are saying his work ethic is poor and he is not a good teammate. Oh yeah, he also lied about his age.

 

On top of that, his combine performance was down right dreadful lol.

Just a few links for ya...

Thats all media imo. The media has to find a player to make money off of just like how they did with Geno Smith this year. It happens every single year.

I'd go with Zeller over Len.  Bennett over Oladipo..  No way we'd trade the pick.

It's not media, when specific GM's are saying he will fall out of the top 14.

 

And you can't make up a poor combine performance and your age...

 

Your better than that chuck lol.

Shabazz is not a team player at all. You can tell that just by watching him play. Or heck, by looking at his statistics. How does he not even average ONE assist per game on a pretty loaded UCLA team? His scoring is not very efficient and he can't do anything besides shoot. If he wasn't a big name coming out of high school, he would be a late first round pick at best.

Lol. I love debating with you this time of year.

I respect your imo, but really give me the name of the GM. Why do everything has to be anonymous?

It's all media really to me.

I see Burke as a Kemba clone.

 

If Burke can score he will be a solid player, but if he has trouble scoring; he will struggle just like Kemba did his rookie year.

 

It really has nothing to do with how talented these two guys are, it's the fact that they're so damn small that they can't run a pick and roll offense lol.

Bazz was pretty much the only scoring option on that Bruins team.

We need just about anything right now.  We may possibly lose Henderson so that would require some sort of G/F combo that can rebound and score.  I am leaning more towards a strong inside presence though.  Bennett (even tho he is 6-7), Alex Len, or Zeller.  But then I think that we may be better off to just try to sign some big men in Free Agency.  I just don't know I am at a loss right now.

Bennett's enormous 7'1 wing span makes up for his lack of size.

 

To put this in perspective, Bennett's 7'1 wings span is longer than Cody Zeller's (who is taller than Bennett by five inches)

 

Bennett's wing span is also longer than (Kelly Olynyk's, Mason Plumlee's, Dario Saric's, Mike Muscala's, Erik Murphy's, Richard Howell's, James Ennis's, DeShaun Thomas's, Tony Snell's, Reggie Bullock's, and Sergey Karasev's) who are all taller than him.

Len wouldn't be a bad pick. TBH, I'm not real crazy about any of this year's "top" prospects.
