Kenneth Faried: Does Louisville Upset Improve His NBA Stock?
Kenneth Faried Could Be a First Rounder After Louisville Performance
Coming into this season Kenneth Faried was already a name that most NBA scouts knew. He has been one of the best rebounders in college hoops for his entire career and after a solid senior season he was being mentioned as a probable first round pick in this year’s NBA draft.
One has to wonder how much a 12 point and 17 rebound performance against Louisville in the NCAA tournament is going to help his draft stock.
Honestly I think in the grand scheme of things the performance isn’t going to change the minds of any NBA scouts, but it will at least give fans something to look at when their team drafts the big man.
You also have to wonder that after the performance Kevin Love has put on when it comes to rebounding might make teams more eager to draft a big man who hits the glass harder than a fat guy hits an all-you-can-eat buffet.
The one thing Faried’s performance did show us is that his offensive game is still quite raw. In the college game he is just bigger and stronger than his opponents and that really is how he gets most of his points, but as far as a post up game, he still has a ways to go.
