2011 NBA DRAFT REPORT

A LOOK AT THE TOP POINT GUARDS AVAILABLE

 

As the official draft biographer for the Sports Xchange, you can view my complete reports on the athletes available for the NBA Draft at the CBSSports.com draft site. In ranking these players, I take into consideration their pro potential, and not who will go first in the draft.

 

In preparing those reports, I have my own thoughts on who will be the next stars in the NBA. This article looks at the top best PURE point guards that will hear their names called this Thursday. NOTE: Kyrie Irving will be featured on the combo guard report;

 

CREAM OF THE CROP…BRANDON KNIGHT-Kentucky

Positives…Young player who is like a sponge absorbing information from his coaches…

Blessed with fluid body control and a quick initial step, Knight is equally proficient as a scorer or passer…Has a polished scoring game, making him a better fit as a combo guard than allowing him to reside at the point…

Who Do You Think Will Have the Best NBA Career

Streaky scorer, but when he gets into a rhythm, he can connect from anywhere on the court…Relies too much on his right hand, but has the explosive first step and good lateral agility to finish around the basket…Demonstrates very good stamina and has the speed to consistently run the court…

Strong for a player his size and while his defense is still a work in progress, he is capable of boxing out the bigger opponent…Has the size and naturally long wingspan to disrupt the opponent in the passing lane…

Uses his explosion well to get by his man off the dribble…Shows much better touch with his right hand than with his left, evident by his ease of movement executing floaters in the lane… Moves up and down the court with good quickness and can simply glide through the air and draw fouls when going to the basket…

Has a nice hesitation move to take his man off balance and shows good adjustment skills on crossover action…Needs to improve his leaping ability, but has a high, quick release taking three-point chances and putting the ball up from the perimeter…Has the reach and wing span to get his shot up and over a leaping defender…

Also uses his length and foot speed to stay in front of the shooters…Is most comfortable when asked to take his shots from catch-and-shoot situations…

Very smooth coming off baseline screens, as he shows good elevation and body control, along with a consistently quick release and is quite adept at taking shots off the dribble, especially when his opponent goes under the pick…

Who is the Draft's Most Underrated Point Guard?

Submit Vote vote to see results

Has a nice mid-range pull-up shot and while he needs to improve his core strength a bit to consistently get through traffic at the next level, he can put pressure on the defense and force his man out of the paint with his base-line fade-away shots…Likes to fire jumpers and floaters from the 12-15 foot range…

With maturity, he has the ability to show better shot selection (will still pass up several shots he should have taken, feeling his teammates had a better outlet)…Does a good job of shifting gears and pulling up to take the jumper…

Good at executing the bounce pass and has the lateral agility to change direction and fire in a floater…Likes to use the glass on his fade-away shot and would be an ideal fit in an up-tempo attack (played that way in high school).

 

Negatives…The youngest player in the draft (age 18), Knight is still a work in progress as a point guard and while he appears much more comfortable at the two-guard spot, he lacks the size and bulk to challenge shooting guards and small forwards defensively at the next level…

Very coachable, but perhaps due to his youth and overall shyness, he has yet to embrace the leadership role attached to being a point guard…A consistent scorer, but he is very predicable, as he is right-hand dominant and will generally force his shot from that side in tight areas (lacks confidence in his off hand)…

The Draft's Most Underrated Point Guard

More of a rhythm shooter, but has long stretches where he can’t “hit the side of a barn” (see Oklahoma, November game vs. Connecticut, Indiana, Georgia, Arkansas, Tennessee regular season games, SEC Tourney action vs. Ole Miss, Alabama and Florida, and NCAA Tournament contests vs. Princeton, Ohio State and Connecticut)…Might be a better fit as a combo guard, rather than assigning him to the point…

Has an inconsistent outside jump shot and is not a great leaper, needing to set his feet better before elevating…at the next level, he needs to become much more aggressive taking his shot, as he is a decent passer, but you would like to see him take more opportunities going to the rim…

Has been unfairly compared to Derrick Rose (simply lacks Rose’s athleticism and skill level)…Needs to run the floor with a tighter handle, as he is very turnover prone (120 in 38 games) and despite very good academic skills, he struggles making quick decisions, especially when in tight areas, resulting in a very poor assist/turnover ratio (one of the worst in the NCAA last year), as he is prone to lose his dribble working in a crowd…

An NBA team has to look at his birth certificate and be patient with this youngster, as he does not have “tough skin”…Another concern about playing him at the point is his marginal court vision, as he tries to force his shots or make ill-advised passes (struggles when asked to control the game’s tempo)… Will bounce away from contact too much, making him a bit of a liability when asked to drive in the paint.

 

Compares To…JASON TERRY-Dallas…Knight has not really embraced the idea that he has to become a court general at the point and while he has good ball-handling skills, he is more of a shooting guard trapped in the point guard position, much like Sam Cassell and Allen Iverson. He plays the game with good intelligence, but is a rhythm shooter who can put up “clunkers” more often than an NBA coach will care to see.

He is still a bit shy to take control of the tempo of the game and unlike in high school, he did not appear too comfortable with the idea of coming up with the clutch baskets in pressure situations. His athleticism and scoring potential will make him one of the first guards taken in the draft, but I don’t see him as the classic lead guard type.

 

MOST UNDERRATED…ANDREW GOUDELOCK-College of Charleston

Positives…Smooth open court runner who might not have great quickness to play the point, but his savvy play, nose for open spaces and long range shooting ability (396 treys made) help him compensate for a lack of size playing the two-guard position…

Uses his lateral agility, court vision and timing to slip past traffic to elevate above the rim to feather the ball into the basket, doing a nice job of taking his man off the dribble, as he gets lots of his points off screens and catch-and-shoot situations when not firing it up often from the perimeter…

Defenders need to pressure him on the edge, as he can quickly turn and shoot once he secures the pass…Frontcourt types struggle quite a bit to stay with him, as he has a nice array of spin/pivot moves with a decent crossover to get past slower wings on the way to the basket, but will fight coming off screens when challenged by quicker one-guards…

Needs to learn how to uses his frame better to power his way past defenders trying to block his shot around the basket, but when the lane is clogged, he has that quickness needed to fade back or change directions in attempts to separate from his man to get a cleaner shot…When given space, he can be very consistent shooting behind the arc…

High energy type on defense, using his lateral skills well on rotations…Gets good elevation and shows nice form executing his jumper…Can create his own shot, working hard to get to the rim and finish vs. smaller back court types (stymied vs. bigger men, though)…

Moves well without the ball, doing a nice job of coming off screens to get other teammates involved…Has confidence in his shot selection to want the ball in crunch time…With his ball control skills, he is efficient taking his man off the dribble…Despite his size, he attacks the basket, even when bigger forwards collapse on him…Has a smooth, quick release and a high release point, showing good range firing up his three-pointers (made 41.3% of those shots for his career)…Gets good elevation and sets his feet well with his pull-up jumper…Has very good balance moving through traffic and is a valid free throw shooter who uses his body well to draw contact on the way to getting opportunities at the foul line…Good passer with the vision to bounce the ball out from defensive rotations…Has a tight handle on the ball and comes off the dribble with good elevation to flip in a quick jumper, but must be more alert when additional defenders converge on him, or he is apt to turn the ball over…More comfortable shooting the ball, but knows his size will limit him to playing the off-guard spot at the next level and worked hard this off-season to improve his handle, showing at the Portsmouth pre-camp that he can control the tempo of the game and create scoring opportunities for others (just needs reps to get comfortable in the point guard role)…Keeps his hands active, doing a nice job of coming up with steals in the passing lane.

Who is the Draft's Most Overrated Point Guard?

Submit Vote vote to see results

 

Negatives…Played both the one- and two-guard spots and while he showed the ability to play the point at the Portsmouth Invitational pre-camp, he is not an explosive athlete to gain most of his minutes there and at a shade under 6:02, he lacks the size to be an off-guard, despite excellent long range shooting skills…Unselfish with the ball until he gets into a rhythm where he will over-dribble and hold on to the ball too long, looking for an open teammate when he should just be creating his own shot…Tries to be “too perfect” in creating his own scoring opportunities and while he has a quick release, he is a bit too deliberate making a decision with the ball in his hands (this lets the quicker guards take him off his element, resulting in a high turnover rate (had a career-high 119 turnovers, most coming off the dribble last season)…Must do a better job of pressing the perimeter shooters (gives too much space at times)…Not really an explosive open court runner, and does not compensate with good change of direction and lateral agility…Does not have that long wingspan to alter shots and while he has good leaping ability, his reach is not good enough to make an impact as a shot blocker (37 blocks in 140 games)…Has a tight dribble, but will get out of control and leave the ball exposed when trying to drive past traffic… His lack of foot speed is evident when he fails to draw additional defenders when trying to turn the corner…Needs to add more bulk to compensate for a lack of good quickness, as he gets stymied by the bigger guards when fighting off screens.

 

Compares To…JAMEER NELSON-Orlando…Like Nelson, Goudelock will have to sacrifice some of his scoring duties and learn how to play the point. There are not many 6:01.4 shooting guards in this league and he also lacks the blazing speed to cover speedy point men, but he did show in Portsmouth that he is improving his ability to control the tempo of the game and create scoring opportunities for others. He never really faced good competition during his college career, but no matter who his opponents were, piling up 2,571 points is certainly an eye-opener and makes him worthy of being a second round draft choice.

 

MOST OVERRATED…CORY JOSEPH-Texas

Positives…If he can find a way to add bulk without losing his average court speed, he might be a decent fit off the bench as a combo guard…Has that “gunslinger’s” type of mentality (shoot first, and when that fails, shoot again), but if given an open lane, he glides through traffic to finish at the rim…When he gets separation from a defender, he can get in a rhythm and shoot a bunch of floaters before mixing it up by delivering soft floaters in the lane (has nice touch and good body control there)…Might take too many chances from the perimeter, but has NBA-caliber three-point range…Better defender vs. smaller guards, as he can press and mirror, but when he has to challenge a bigger shooter, he does not have the power to contain…Lacks great lateral quickness, but will fool a lethargic defender by executing a spin move or reverse lay-up…Ambidextrous type of shooter who can finish with either hand…Has that sudden stop-&-go action to deliver with a quick pull-up shot (can also do that from either his left or right)…Seems more fearless and sure of himself when he has the ball in his hands, as he uses his stop-&-go skills to pull up off the dribble and take his jump shot…Lacks ideal size for a shooting guard, but vertical leap, along with lane agility to compensate…Has an array of moves to the basket, but seems much more comfortable utilizing floaters while in the lane…Efficient outside shooter with a good arch and quick release to fire the ball over a face-up defender…When challenged by the bigger guards, he will utilize his spin moves to slip under and weave through traffic on the way to the rim…Shows the ability to feather the ball in and can finish in transition to score on the lay up…Uses his leaping ability well to go for the rebound (128 last year) or on up-&-under moves around the rim…Has fluid shooting mechanics from the field, doing a good job of creating his own shot and separating himself while keeping the defender off balanced (has the hesitation moves to get the defenders to leave their feet often)…Uses his elevation well to score over the taller opponents…When he gets to the basket, he is capable of executing the finger rolls with either hand.

The NBA's Next Steve Nash?

 

Negatives…Joseph’s shoot-first mentality does not bode well for life as an NBA point guard…More of a combo guard type, but lacks the ideal bulk and strength to defend vs. bigger back court types…Gets out of control with the ball, keeping it on the floor too long looking to create his own shot, only to get rid of it at the last minute to a teammate that might not have a good opportunity to score…Has to develop a tighter handle and be more alert to his surroundings, as he does turn the ball over when he over-dribbles and tries to attack the basket…Not really a great athlete, as he has decent speed, but with his lanky frame and short wingspan (6’4”), along with his average lateral quickness, he might have problems defending vs. quicker guards…Gets too enamored with his own scoring ability, forgetting that he has other outlets he should be feeding the ball off to rather than try to drive hard to the basket…This also leads to questions if he is really the right man to run a team (averaged just 3.0 assists last year)…Never going to give a defense any concern, as more often than not, he will get bounced outside when trying to attack the rim and is not capable of drawing much contact (had just 73 chances from the foul line)…Looks more like a shooting guard trapped in a point man’s body, but lacks bulk, length and size to play the “two” position at the NBA level…Decent three-point shooter, but needs to set his feet better on his mid-range jumper and not take so many chances shooting with a man in his face…Has a shooting guard’s mentality and just marginal passing skills, lacking the court vision to consistently locate the open teammate (would rather shoot than pass anyway, making him a better off-guard than a point man)…Lacks an explosive first step when penetrating the lane…Can be fooled along the perimeter when the opponent executes good pump fakes or hesitation moves and will generally lose his position (takes a side mostly rather than facing up)…Loves to hoist the ball up, but gets too scoring happy and needs to develop better shot selection (made just 42.2% of his 322 shots last year)…Must do a better job of distributing the ball, as he gets too conscious of taking the shot, leaving his teammates out of the action often…Must play with better control, as he gets frustrated with himself after missing a shot…Will throttle down at times when he doesn’t have the ball in his hands (stands around and looks at the action)…There are doubts that he can add much more bulk to his frame without it impacting his already average quickness.

 

Compares To…JAMAL CRAWFORD-Atlanta…Joseph is a shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body, but he could be a liability on the point in the NBA due to a “shoot-first” mentality, and poor decision-making on when he has to distribute the ball to his teammates. He might be a better fit coming of the bench, where he generate a scoring spurt for a few stretches and also pester perimeter shooters. He can connect from anywhere on the field, but with his light frame, his quickness could be affected, if he has to bulk up to play the off-guard spot for long stretches.

 

MY FAVORITE PROSPECT…JIMMER FREDETTE-Brigham Young

Positives…Has great confidence, and rightfully so, in his ability to make his mid-range jumper…quite turnover prone, but when he keeps the ball on the floor for just a few dribbles before shooting, he shows excellent accuracy and range connecting anywhere outside the key (needs to get stronger to establish a better inside game for the NBA level)…Sets his feet well and shows good elevation, along with a quick release fading back to execute his jumper…Shows good elbow angle shooting the sphere and while not the strongest you will find, vs. smaller opponents, he is very effective at creating space…Does not play with a point guard’s mentality (pass first, pass second), but when he does feed the ball off, he knows how to fire crisp tosses and will generally make good decisions with the ball in his hands…Probably the best shooter in this draft class, showing above average crossover skills…Has the basketball IQ to know how to spot up for a clear shot and is very effective at drawing contact on the way to the basket…Excellent free throw shooter (89.4% on free throws last year)…Can easily elevate off the ground and with his high release point and smooth, quick release, he has no problems getting the trajectory on his shot to prevent even the tallest of defenders from blocking it…Has little regard for his own safety running through traffic (his one desire is to draw contact and get to the charity stripe when doing this, but is much better vs. smaller point guards than the bigger, more physical two-guards)…Type of player that scores in bunches, demonstrating very good mechanics and a smooth release taking his free throws…Classic gunslinger who needs just a little room and practically no time in getting his shot off, as his mechanics are textbook perfect, squaring his shoulders and quickly setting his feet to catch and shoot the ball suddenly…Has a versatile scoring game, as he can either pull up and fire away with his soft jumpers or simply hoist the ball from beyond the arc…Once elevated, he demonstrates a powerful stride to the hoop, as he does a fine job of drawing contact when playing in transition…Has more than enough range with his jump shot to hit them from NBA-caliber three-point range…Has incredible rise getting off the ground to put up his jumper…His mid range game continues to improve, as he does a good job of setting his feet before unleashing the ball…Keeps his body low moving through a crowd and has the body control to battle his way to the rim…Defenders need to play him tight, as he is very good at coming off screens to put up a quick and soft trey from the perimeter…Lacks explosive speed, but with his low center of gravity, he has no problems weaving through traffic and knows how to vary his speed’s pace to pull up and hit his jumpers while the defender over-commits on the play…It was surprising that he registered just 49 steals last year, as he has great anticipation skills to rob the ball carrier from the sphere…Decent rebounder for a point guard, as he shows the elevation and extension, along with using his angling skills well to crash the boards…Can play more than just a few minutes at the point, if needed, as he shows good court vision and when asked to handle the ball, he does it with a “pass first” mentality (has a shoot-first mentality as a two-guard)…Might not have the raw strength to overpower frontcourt types, he can fool them with finesse, as he is very good on crossovers and does a good job of utilizing head and shoulder fakes.

Walker's Leadership is Unquestioned

 

Negatives…Lacks the suddenness and lateral agility to stay with the shooter on the perimeter and will generally give a side rather than face up to his opponent when playing on the defensive side…Plays with great passion as a shooter, but has a glaring indifference to taking charges or getting his hands in on the action to try and steal the sphere…Once his man gets by him on the way to the rim, he will generally stand around, almost admiring his opponent’s shot rather than try to recover and get back into the action…More of a shooting guard, but lacks the size and athleticism to face up regularly vs. the more physical “twos”…Makes good decisions as a shooter, but will look to create his own shot rather than look for a better open outlet…Tends to over-dribble, leading to his very high amount of turnovers (131 last season)…Needs to add bulk and strength to his frame, as he is not the type that can easily attack the rim or play a strong inside game (gets most of his points from his mid-range jumper)…Gets bounced around too much when getting attacked by help defenders…Has a nice jumper, but will get too “fancy” with the ball trying to make acrobatic shots and it is obvious his athleticism, or lack of, is more of a liability (especially when having to move suddenly or laterally) than an asset…Has to be more alert to his surroundings, as he gives up the ball too much (thinks he can compensate with his scoring, but he does not have the inside game you want from a shooting guard), as he had an alarming 3.54 turnovers per game as a senior.

Could the Cavs Go For Cole in Round Two?

Compares To…STEVE NASH-Phoenix…Prior to an extensive film breakdown and before his sensational pre-draft workouts, I was comparing Fredette to Kevin Martin-Houston, as both are lacking defensively and one glance at his point total, it was assumed he has a shoot-first mentality. Now, I see the same defensive lapses that Nash provides, but also that uncanny feel for his teammates and excellent range with his shot. While some team might look at him more as a combo guard, I see him as a point man in the making that would be an ideal fit for Utah at #12.

 

BEST OF THE REST

KEMBA WALKER-Connecticut

Compares To…AARON BROOKS-Phoenix…Like Brooks, Walker can be simply sensational and carry the team for stretches, but he will also go through long periods where his poor shot selection and “shoot first” mentality, along with constant over-dribbling that leads to a lot of turnovers and ill-advised shots. He’s undersized, but like Brooks, Brandon Jennings and Tony Parker, he can compensate for size deficiencies with his foot speed and exceptional lateral movements. In a right system, like Jennings is in, he can develop into a pretty decent point guard, but he needs a strict coach monitoring his court decisions, or he could end up going the Stephon Marbury route. Teams might be wary about using a lottery pick on him, as he is height challenged in this big man’s game and his lack of size and strength causes him to get punished often when driving to the basket. He is an efficient passer, but plays with a shoot-first attitude that you usually associate with a shooting guard. He is not a dangerous shooter along the perimeter and has to do a better job when playing at the charity stripe. He is better suited as a combo guard, but with his power and height deficiencies, he is might be better served getting a few minutes off the bench rather than being the team’s floor general.

Mack and Walker Will Meet Again - In the NBA

 

DARIUS MORRIS-Michigan

Compares To…JARRETT JACK-New Orleans…Like Jack, Morris is a solid defensive player who handles the ball well, when he doesn’t over-think on the court. Yes, he’s a point guard trapped in a two-guard’s body, but that has allowed him to create some pretty nice mismatches vs. smaller point guards on his drives to the basket. He has yet to develop a nice mid-range shot and still can’t connect from the three-point range consistently, but he compensates with a strong inside game. He will get a little over-aggressive at times, but is generally a physical defender who can break down opponents at the dribble. He might not have the mental maturity to play the point yet, as he will make costly decisions and keeps the ball on the floor too long rather than feed it around, but with a weak crop of physical, defensive-oriented point guards in this class, with patient coaching, he will eventually develop more of a scoring touch to play shooting guard or calm down and be an efficient point man.

 

REGGIE JACKSON-Boston College

Compares To…ERVIN JOHNSON-ex-Milwaukee…Jackson made marked improvement with his scoring ability as a senior, thanks to him showing up in much better shape than what he performed in during his junior campaign. He still has a long way to go in attempts to establish any sort of outside offensive game, as his scoring consists of put-backs and power dunks at the moment. He has good “hops” to elevate and alter the opponent’s shot, but he bites on hesitation moves and pump fakes, leaving his feet often on defense. He is strictly an end-of-the-bench performer at the moment, who would bring some value coming in to rebound, block shots and deny smaller forwards penetration, but if he was one of five guys on the court, he’d be my fifth scoring option…NOTE-Jackson’s recent knee woes have limited his workouts and could cause him to slide into the second round.

NORRIS COLE-Cleveland State

Compares To…STEPHEN CURRY-Golden State-Some scouts feel that Cole is a shooting guard trapped in a point guard’s body, but his ball handling skills have shown steady improvement since abandoning his wing position to be a one-guard two years ago. Even with his size, he has the defensive skills that can instantly disrupt the opposition’s offense. He is effective getting the ball to open shooters in the passing lanes and when he properly sets his feet, he has NBA caliber long range shooting skills. He is a very effective shooter on the move, showing good accuracy when taking his attempts off the dribble. Do not be concerned about the lack of elite competition he has faced. If a GM takes Cole in the draft, leave the lights on in the gym, as this player is certain to spend countless hours there after practice – he has that type of work ethic.

 

IMAN SHUMPERT-Georgia Tech

Compares To…ERIC SNOW-ex Cleveland…Shumpert has experience at the both guard spots, and the ability to earn minutes as a combo type. Like Snow, his offense is a work in progress, as he is very inconsistent with his jumper or when shooting off the dribble. But he is a dominating face-up defender with excellent strength and overall athletic talent. He needs to bulk up more to play shooting guard at the NBA level, but is more the type that will get 15-20 minutes playing pressure defense rather than relied upon to attack the basket. He has a developing mid-range shot, but offers little shooting from the outside.

 

SHELVIN MACK-Butler

Compares To…CHAUNCEY BILLIPS-New York…Like Billups, Mack will need time to develop into a point guard, as he lacks great explosion on drives to the basket. While he is a good passer, he still has to get a tighter handle on the ball and make quicker decisions with it (saw less time on the point last year due to the team’s better options there). He is still trying to become a point guard with mixed results. His ball-handling skills and court vision to distribute the ball will need to improve before he can earn quality minutes in the rotation. He is one of the better perimeter shooters in this draft, despite a drop-off in accuracy last season. Even without sudden explosiveness, he has a nice array of scoring moves and while he lacks great size to play shooting guard at the NBA defensive level, he is stronger than most players his size.

 

DIANTE GARRETT-Iowa State

Compares To…BENO UDRIH-Sacramento…Garrett does not have Urdih’s three-point range, but he is just as fearless on defense, along with being an excellent ball-handler with good range on his jumper. He is stronger than his frame indicates and shows great court vision. He has the same scoring touch of Speedy Claxton (ex-Atlanta) from the mid-range, but is much more alert to his court surroundings, even if there are times where he seems prone to making the turnover. The Portsmouth Tournament was his “icing on the cake” after a breakout senior season and his recent workouts vs. elite talent, where he won quite a few of those one-on-one match-ups, could have his hometown team, Milwaukee, strongly considering him in the second round as a capable back-up for Brandon Jennings at the point.

 

JULYAN STONE-Texas-El Paso

Compares To…DOUG CHRISTIE-ex-Sacramento…Like Christie during his NBA career (1992-2007), Stone is a solid defensive force who is very active disrupting the opponent in the passing lane. He has good ball handling skills and while he has the height you look for in a two-guard, his rail-thin frame and lack of strength and bulk will more likely make him an over-sized point guard in the NBA. He is starting to gain confidence in his mid-range shooting, but needs to improve his shooting mechanics, as his low release point has led to the defense altering a fair share of his attempts. He is a deft passer with good court vision, always looking to create better shooting opportunities for others.
