This is really heady stuff.

I'm not sure if I'm sold on Scott as an NBA talent.
Maybe not. Big men who can score and shoot free throws are a pretty rare commodity, though.
I think Josh Scott is someone that probably goes in the mid to late 2nd round his senior year. His lack of athletic ability will be a problem in the NBA. There is probably a 4th NBA talent on the team but it is really anyone's guess who it is. Some believe it is Wesley Gordon if he can become a more confident offensive player. Jaron Hopkins certainly has the length and athletic ability to be a NBA talent. He needs to refine his ball handling and shooting ability for sure, tho.
I really hope The Mayor goes in the 1st round. Not only for his sake, but to give coach 3 first round picks in 4 years, all of whom were 3* guys on rivals. That sort of thing should get the attention of recruits.
Sorry if I'm losing my mind, but I'm also too lazy to research it. Of the guys those three guys that have gone on to the NBA, Boyle only recruited Dinwiddie, right?
Dre was the first guy he recruited to CU, AFAIK.
LOL Josh Scott's an NBA Player...he's a great 4. Just needs a little time to bulk up and refine his game. The one downside is his lack of elite athleticism. We'll see how much development he'll make in the upcoming summer and should be able to know by the fall if we are looking at this year or next.
It's for me to imagine that a guy who was the best big in the PAC-12 as a sophomore wouldn't be thought of as a future NBA player... especially by his fans.
Not necessarily elite athleticism, but just athleticism in general. I'd imagine he would be a way below average athlete in the NBA
Josh is an nba calibre player because he's very skilled. There's no one less athletic than Zach Randolph, and he's into his 2nd decade in the league.
Lack of athleticism for him as a 4 is certainly an issue, but he's got an NBA career ahead of him.
He will make up for his lack of athleticism with above average fundamentals, footwork and the ability to think plays through
