Len Will Be An NBA Bust

25 posts in this topic

Maybe not a total bust, but I don't think he will ever be starter worthy.

 

Just hope and pray for McLemore. Noel should develop nicely at the next level too. Couldn't even be mad with Bennett or Oladipo. But no thanks to Len.

Other than McLemore and Porter, everyone has bust potential.

Yeah this draft as a whole has bust potential.  Len easily has one of the highest ceilings, but also is one of the guys most likely to bust IMO.  If you're going to gamble on someone in this draft though, a 7 footer with upside is probably your best bet.

That and I watched a lot of Maryland's games. He was useless for the majority of their games. I know college play doesn't translate to NBA play, but if you can't perform against a lot of NBA ready ACC players, then I don't like your chances in the NBA.

I watched a lot of Maryland games too and more often than not if he disappeared it was because for some reason his teammates and coaching staff seemed to forget he was in the game.

With the amount of zone play it is hard to get the ball into the post without a dynamic outside scorer..Maryland did not have that guy on the outside.

I don't see Len making an immediate impact, but he has the potential to be a very boring fundamental stretch 5 that you build a team around.

 

I hate to make the comparison because I know he isn't in the same ballpark, but he has the tools to be like Tim Duncan if he reached his max potential, but could also be a bust like Sean May if he is a softy.  I would assume he is going to land somewhere in-between.

So you have no basis for your post?

Great thread...

If you're going to make a claim like this at least provide some reasoning why.

By the way, reasoning doesn't include your opinion.

To spark discussion. I think it's alright to post opinion based thread on a message board based around conversation.

    • yeah the inferiority complex is real. try pushing back at all, in any context, and see how far that gets you. there's one cop in wilmington who has basically stalked someone im close to because she argued with him during their first encounter (she was texting at a stoplight and he gave her a ticket for texting while driving that was of course instantly thrown out in court). he has pulled her over multiple times for "traffic violations", none of which have stuck, just for the chance to yell at her until she cried (i was in the passenger seat for one of these instances of harassment and it was as bad as you think). plenty of people go into law enforcement because they are instantly afforded a level of respect from the public that they could never earn on their own, and they'll be damned if someone doesn't treat them like a superhero instead of the fat, uninteresting c-students that they often are but don't take my anecdotes for it, just look at how childish and petty police unions can be. remember when those overgrown babies literally turned their backs on de blasio? lol. they're not exactly the best and the brightest
