PJ Hairston. DRAFT HIM.

55 posts in this topic

I question his drive. Of course he's gonna play his hardest in the D-League. He just got kicked from UNC and his draft stock plummeted with everything that went on. He's honestly a douche and a dumbass, and I personally don't think I'd want him on my team.

 

However, I do think that he can be a solid scorer of the bench in the NBA.

If we don't get him, I hope we can land Marcus Paige, James Michael McAdoo or Brice Johnson

I'm a HUGE UNC fan and I wouldn't touch McAdoo... He's too soft

 

Paige and Johnson have a higher upside though.. Think I'd take Brice over Marcus just based on Paige's inconsistency

 

I would not hesitate to take Hairston in the first at all

S/O to the Dudley alumni right here in Gboro NC.

 

You from Greensboro too? Many players have come out of Dudley.

LOL, If I'm not mistaken, he was projected as a lottery pick prior to last draft.

Have any personal experience with him? Seems a bit harsh.

I don't question his drive at all. From everything I've seen, he's very motivated by competition and to win. His performance in the ACC tourney last year showed it. He thrived off of taking over the game.

I said the same thing about Dwight Howard, Chris Paul over Felton and MAYonnaise, and Steph Curry when we were within reasonable distance to do so. Any of those picks could've dramatically changed our franchise's course, but we always made the wrong decision.

Every one of those players were taken before our pick. We would've taken Howard had Orlando taken Okafor, we had a trade in place to move up to get Paul but the other team backed out, and Curry went seventh whereas our pick was 12th (Henderson). We didn't make "wrong decisions," we never had a chance at those guys.

As for Hairston, I'd be ok with using our second on him provided no legitimate first rounder falls. As an UDFA he's a no-brainer.

I was quite intrigued by Rice's D-League performance last season - since, one would assume, the talent level would be higher than that of college. But he's yet to make an impact. In fact, he was just sent back to the D-League.

Hairston as mid to late 1st round would be fine by me. I think he moves up the board once he works out at the combine & individual teams

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
