The Negative Knock

Jun 26, 2012 -- 1:13pm

By Kenny Roda

Here’s the biggest knock on each & every one of my “Lottery 14” players, plus Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger, who we warned you about at least a month ago & now others are red flagging him too.


Anthony Davis – Needs to get stronger & improve his post-game.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – Hitch in his jump shot & not consistent shooting the basketball.

Harrison Barnes – Can’t create his own shot & has a bad handle.

Bradley Beal – A bit small by NBA 2-Guard standards.

Andre Drummond – No heart, desire or motor to play all the time. Horrific free throw shooter & limited offensive game. Thinks his game resembles that of Kevin Durant’s! WHAT?

Thomas Robinson – Settles for outside shot too much. Is he a 3 or a 4?

Jeremy Lamb – His motor doesn’t always run at full speed & too thin.

Pery Jones III – Too thin. Doesn’t like to get physical. Wants to play the 3 instead of the 4. Not mentally tough.

Meyers Leonard – Focusness & desire to play the game & learn the game.

Damian Lillard – Didn’t play against elite competition in college.

Tyler Zeller – Doesn’t have a high ceiling, has already reached his potential.

Terrence Jones –  What is he, a 3 or the 4? Settles for the jumper too much which needs work.

Dion Waiters – Undersized & jumper isn’t consistent.

John Henson – Too thin & too weak. Needs to add a lot of weight!

Jared Sullinger – Medical red flags about his back. Too slow for NBA game. Length & strength bother him. Plays below the rim.
