Tyshawn Taylor: a leader, a true point guard, crazy speed.
Of all the guards in the NBA Draft, Tyshawn Taylor is the fastest. His acceleration from baseline to baseline is at an elite NBA level. He is long for a point guard at 6'3'' and really has a similar body to Rajon Rondo.
The best part about Taylor is how he played against the top tier teams.
Kentucky (2 games): 20.5 ppg, 2.5 apg, 2.5 rpg, 3 topg
North Carolina: 22 points, six rebounds, five assists, three turnovers, five steals
Ohio State: (2 games): 9.5 ppg, 11 apg, 3 rpg, 6 topg
Baylor (3 games): 22.3 ppg, 4 apg, 3 rpg, 3.6 topg
Missouri (2 games): 22.5 ppg, 4 apg, 3.5 topg
Why he will be overlooked: Kansas fans know all about Taylor's turnover issue. Against Duke early in the season he had 11. NBA scouts will think, "Wait, if he turned it over so much in college, what's going to happen against quicker defenders in the pros?
Now, I think there is a definite silver lining in this. First of all, to play as fast as Taylor plays, a few turnovers per game are bound to happen. You have to take the bad with the good. Second of all, nearly every team in the NBA has at least a decent point guard already in place. The team in the late first round or early second that picks Taylor is not turning their team over to him for 30 minutes a night.
Having Taylor as a backup for 10-15 minutes could be a dangerous weapon for an established contender.
