rudy gay or adam morrison as the #1 pick next year?

Postby live and die in LA on Mon Dec 12, 2005 6:02 pm

because i cant really make a decision.

morrison is the 6-8 sweet shooting all around player, people have compared him to larry bird.

rudy gay is the 6-9 high flying dunker also equipped with a jumpshot, people have compared him to scottie pippen.

I'd rather have Greg Oden than both of them, but your have to go with Rudy Gay here. He is just too good not to be a #1 pick. Other than he and Morrison,its going to be a sh-t draft because of the fact no high schoolers.

interesting

from the one game assessment of each

Morrison has a much more polished. i don't know why, but his offense (besides passing) reminds me of steve nash when he drives in, doing all these crazy spin layins

but on the other hand

athletically, Gay is SUPERIOR to Morrison..I think it matters who is picking..if you are the hawks picking number one, you pick Morrison, b/c you already have that "potential" player and athletic freak in Marv Williams

if you are TOR, you pick the athletic freak b/c, well, he's an athletic freak :man10:

but to tell you the truth, atlanta really shouldn't be picking anymore swingmen, so they better snatch Aldridge

The NBA thrives off athletisicism. Therefore, whoever has the 1st pick, they are picking Rudy Gay. Simple as that.

To be honest matter who gets the number 1 pick.

If Toronto gets it then I suspect they will get Rudy Gay.

If Atlanta gets it then neither will be number 1 it will be J.J Reddick. Atl has too and I mean too many swingman.
Strikemode14 is the greatest.

SO!!!

no but seriously, besides the passing, everytime i see morrison, i see him drive in and shoot at all these odd angles, just like nash does..it's a wierd comparison..iono

i like what i saw of morrison a lot

I'd truly take Aldridge over both

actually, if i was TOR,i'd take Aldridge as an insurance policy in the case that Bosh leaves, or trade Bosh to LA for ODom :man1:

c aLdridge
PF Villa
SFjalen
SG mopete
pg Odom :man10:

i'm kidding, but i'd truly take aldridge over both

Dont be so quick to assume Gay or Morrison are locks for number one. Id there is anything the NBA values over sheer athleticism, its size.

It really depends on how his season progresses, but dont sleep on guys like Lemarcus Aldridge, Josh Boone, Julian Wright, and Shelden Williams.

With the new age limit, the draft is weaker, but I really think its only limited by removing a number of High School entries with "potential". There si still much talent and depth at this draft.

Look out for these guys:

DJ White - Indiana
Daniel Gibson - Texas (love this guy)
Justin gray - Wake
Curtis Sumpter - Villanova (really high on this guy)
Pops Mensah-Bonsu - George Washington
Dee Brown - Illinois

Lastly, I dont see JJ going top 10. But he'll contribute on a team, no doubt.

Good list GuRu.
IMO my current mock looks like this
1.Gay
2.Aldridge
3 Morrison
4.Josh Boone

And I think Sheldon Williams is a top 10 pick. Somewhere. Would he be 6-11 instead of 6-9 IMO he would be a top 3 pick.

:man9:
Size means crap when you see how Elton Brand is playing but for GMs and scouts great size is always something that catches great attention.
BTW Brand plays Duncan tonight and am I the only one who believes Brand has a better year and will outplay Duncan?
I think Clippers lose but I think Brand will outplay Duncan. Parker vs. Alien is going to be like Parker and his slow motion :man10:

I'd pick as #1 pick Rudy G. Altough Morrison is rolling high this season and shooting well, I'd still say that Rudy is gonna be #1. I see more potential in him then in Morrison...
Lamarcus Aldrige - he's the one who can get into "battle" for first pick. But I don't to be drafted #1 is most important thing, important is to be with good coaches, where you can alongside em develop the game.

Morrison is your poor man's Larry Bird (right now, anyways). He's a young kid with old legs, but he can hit shots from anywhere on the floor, and he comes through in the clutch and has the ability to create for other players. He looks like he belongs in the 80's, really...

I'd pick Morrison over Gay. However, it all depends on the team...and if it's the Hawks, and it was between these two, it's best to go with Morrison.

If you aren't talking about Redick, maybe you're thinking McNamara.

I think it really depends on the team and what they need. If the team is in a dire need of a big, they might take one of the four that Guru listed.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Pacers tried to trade up to get Morrison, Bird 2.0. I doubt they could though, unless they trade Artest to the Hawks or Raptors and get their #1 pick.

Like I said earlier though, it's just all about what the team is looking for. If they want an athletic SF, they take Gay.

If a team wants one of the best shooters that the league has seen in a long time, they will take Morrison.

Personally, I'd take Morrison. Athletic SFs come a dime a dozen, there is at least 2-3 very good ones in every draft. But I haven't witnessed a player in college or HS with as smooth of a stroke as Morrison has, those type shooters come a long a lot less often.

If Josh Boone gets picked forth overall, that will be by far the worst choice in NBA draft history. He has no offensive game what so ever, and his great defense and shot blocking ability doesn't even put him in the top 50 in the country. I'll admit, I thought Villanueva was a bad pick, but atleast I saw a chance in him having talent. I don't even think Josh Boone should be a first round pick.

If Adam Morrison goes first, it'll be the first time in NBA history since way back when that two unathletic white boys get picked first overall. But really, Adam is a very good player, but look for Andrea Bargani to rise in stock, guys a very solid player from what I've heard. Rudy Gay goes first.

He probably won't be able to play any D, but that won't prevent him from being a great player. Dirk doesn't play D, yet he's one of the best players in the league. The same could be said about Nash and he was last year's MVP.

boone really is overrated, you are right in that he doesnt have an offensive game. he still will be a first round pick tho , he plays good D. i see him as a jamal magloire type player.
