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.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
