Hey guys, new to the board. Just ran by some clips of Bradley Beal and other prospects and wanted to share them.
I realize it IS a workout/highlight tape, but Beal's stroke just screams of a 40% 3-pt shooter. His shot is smooth, efficient and most importantly looks effortless (which is the most important aspect imo, his form wont change while coming off picks or fatigued). He is looking more and more like the Wizards pick at 3 and I certainly wouldnt be dissapointed with that.
The other two prospect videos are of Terrence Ross and Arnett Moultrie. I know many of us want the Wiz to pick up another mid-late lottery pick, so these two kids are who I am high on. Ross, a onetime Maryland Terp commit, is just a freak of nature. Combine his height, jump shot and athleticism and you have a makings of a top 5 pick. The only reason he is not is because of whats in-between his 2 ears. I've watched a couple of UW games and I see a man oozing with untapped potential. He scores and rebounds with ease, but he just doesn't have the killer instinct to take over a game. I think he fits perfectly with the Wiz due to his player profile. If he puts his mental game together, he could be a great pick for the Wiz and if he gets his mental game down, we have a steal.
Moultrie on the other hand is a lesser-known prospect, but many NBA scouts are high on. I can't recall the source, but I remember reading how coming out of high school, Moultrie decided on Miss St. not because he was scared of competition, etc. but because he wanted to help turnaround a lesser school. I think this speaks volumes of his character; both in confidence and his drive. He is also an athletic freak and has the potential to be great with a point man like John feeding him easy buckets.
All in all, i'm excited for the draft on June 28th. Beal + any combination of these two would be a great draft in my book. I firmly believe anything after the top 10 picks in the draft is a throw-up. Either you hit big or not, so going after high bust, high reward prospects is fine with me. Just make sure to pick the sure thing in Beal at 3! Lemme know what you guys think.
