2011 NBA Mock Draft: Chicago selects Josh Selby with the 28th pick
Josh Selby was the number one rated prospect in the class of 2010 as rated by Rivals.
Selby’s signing and subsequent arrival at Kansas was greeted with sky high expectations, but those lofty hopes were not met. Selby only averaged 7.9 points per game, and had trouble establishing his place on the veteran laden Jayhawks squad.
Honestly though, Josh Selby’s game is probably better fitted for the NBA. The prospect has elite athleticism and is at his best when he is breaking defenders down in one-on-one situations. He is also especially dangerous in the open court where he can make plays in transition.
Chicago does not have any spectacular talents at shooting guard, and Selby could form a lethal backcourt combination with Derrick Rose. Josh Selby would benefit from Rose’s breakdown ability and would be able to utilize his one-on-one skills more in the NBA. For this to work though, Selby would have to accept playing off of Rose in the backcourt.
Josh Selby is a lot better individual talent than the 28th pick, but he would fall into a great situation here in Chicago at the end of the first round. At one time, Selby was the most heralded recruit in the country. I am willing to bet that all of that talent did not evaporate over the course of 12 months.
