“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

Saying there are 40 first round pick caliber players in the 2015 draft is accurate assuming 10 of them don't declare. That's not to say who will or won't but if Irvin were to develop as the scouts are predicting then he would get a first round draft grade.
|1 week 5 days ago||Why?||
10-15 players above him probably won't declare.
|1 week 5 days ago||Irvin at 41 on his top 100||
No other Michigan players though.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Is Beilein the next Pop?||
His players play a very unselfish brand of basketball and guards and wings do amazing things in his system.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Nik measured 6'5.25" without shoes which is||
a quarter inch shorter than Ray. I think 32-34 year old Ray Allen is Nik's cieling. Decent defense, 18-20 points a game with a good true shooting percentage, and around 4 assists a game. Maybe a 3rd all-star on a really good team or a very good player on average team.
And if you are picking 10-15 and you get a guy who will be an above average starter and might make and all star game or two you have done very well for yourself.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Ray Allen's scouting report from 2008||
Remind you of anyone?
The 2nd leading 3-point shooter in NBA history, behindReggie Miller. Possesses one of the prettiest strokes in the entire league, complete with effortless mechanics, beautiful follow-through, deep range, and outstanding touch. Excellent shooter from a stand-still, but also very much capable of knocking down contested shots with a hand in his face—actually excels doing so. Outstanding moving off the ball and using screens. Smooth player who can handle the ball equally well with either hand. Uses the threat of his shot extremely well to create shots for himself inside the arc. Not just a 3-point shooter. Takes what defenses give him. Can drive to the rim left or right, but tends to pull-up when driving left. Has an outstanding mid-range game. Excellent at pulling up off the dribble. Not a great finisher due to average strength, but gets to free throw line at a solid rate thanks to his craftiness and aggressiveness, and knocks down his shots at a 90%+ clip. Very good passer, not selfish in the least bit. Extremely efficient. Very mistake-free. Just an average athlete in terms of his first step and overall explosiveness, making him best suited as a second or third option.

who hasn't won at the highest level yet? Very good? Yes. Best? No. that's just as ridiculous as saying Dantonio is the best football coach in the country because he has overachieved at a school that before him hadn't been good for a long time.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
This if how you construct a post!
|9 weeks 5 days ago||That's a really good point||
I forgot Gordon was eligible. Cheap owner as well for not paying Gordon to not play.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||You can't trade him||
His contact is up.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Just shut up already||
If the NBA was rigged the would have given vision the picks to Boston, LA, and Philadelphia. also the owners would have sued the shit out if the league by now.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||The article is incorrect||
He actually tied for 24th best vertical which is just about average for a SG prospect. If Wiggins and Payne had jumped he certainly would have been a couple spots lower.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Payne is the big winner today||
6'9" without shoes with that standing reach and wingspan is plenty big enough to player center in the league and is better than Dwight Howard and compares favorably to a lot current starting centers. If GM's think he can play PF and C then I bit he moves into the lottery by the end of this process. He can be and inside-outside guy like Sheed and play both positions like him as well. If the Pistons had another pick in the teens this is exactly the kind of guys you want on the team to play the kind of offense Van Gundy wants to play. A three man big rotation of Drummond, Monroe, and Payne would be excellent if they could trade J-Smoove for a wing that could shoot.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Best of the small forwards the participated||
Players projected to be in the top 20 generally didn't participate.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Boise needs to grow some balls||
There is no way the NCAA would sanction them considering the media firestorm. Plus it would be national news if the NCAA did and be great publicity for the university.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Football players get admitted under||
Different standards so they are not as smart on average.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Best coach available||
With head coaching experience in my opinion and it isn't even close. I think he wood've a fantastic hire although I don't think having full control if the roster is ever a good thing.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, apparently||
Mgoweather has been taking your rules to great. He is able to predict the weather several hours before the start of the game.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Not because they bribed FIFA?||
Not because they bribed FIFA?
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks||
Keep them coming. I love these.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Let's say its because he wanted to go pro||
Wouldn't he still finish up and leave in good standing?
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Jersey alum?||
Is that your way of saying you are from New Jersey?
|14 weeks 3 days ago||What???||
How does the fact that Florida is after him mean that he wants to go there? Did you read the op or just come here from rcmb to troll? For all we know he may go to Harvard.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Mods, are you taking the offseason off?||
There are five our six users flaming this thread and disrespecting a Michigan student. Bolivia please?
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Come on.||
It's possible that his system works for some and not others. Morgan and Mitch are mobile bigs and horford is not. It's possible his skills weren't maximized under this system, maybe they were, maybe they weren't.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Totally unfair and not the Michigan way||
He had been nothing but a great citizen, great teammate, and competitor for four years. He graduated and has earned the right to pursue his dream. If he has a good year next year he could earth some serious cash in Europe next year. Don't be that guy.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Wallace was a rebounding machine with an ugly shot.||
They couldn't be more different other than being black and having great leading ability.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||What's odd about the heat taking him?||
I think the clippers are another good candidate as they lack front court depth.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Really, are you absolutely sure?||
If he was why did the NCAA just change the rules?
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Suns have the first round picks||
So its not impossible
