@Peezus Most of his score at will points come off a fast break against 6'3 or smaller guards. If you really think Ben Simmons is going to be scoring 20ppg like LeBron James, your crazy. I love the way he plays, sits by the free throw making plays for others. His defense is incredible. And his rebounding skills is great. But what I'm saying is if he can't knock down shots in the NBA, he will not be a franchise player.
Is able to create his own shot on the perimeter with ease
His strength and aggressiveness allow him to be a fearless penetrator
Exceptionally quick first step
Great mid-range game and true threat from downtown
Makes up for his "tweener" status with his strong build
Plays with a certain swagger without coming off as cocky
Tremendous handles in breaking down his defender
Tends to try and do too much offensively, often forcing shots
Not the ideal height for an NBA two-guard, but doesn't have the skills of a true point
While he is a play-maker, Warren lacks a sense of court vision
Needs to show more commitment on the defensive end as the ability to be a lockdown perimeter is there
Summary: One word describes Warren's sophomore campaign; disappointing. He returned to school to prove he could be the go-to guy after Blake Griffin, but failed to live up to that expectation as the Sooners have struggled mightily. Add in a season-ending ankle injury and Warren has gone from a possible top-five pick to a late first-round prospect. At this point, Warren is better off returning to school and trying to re-build his draft stock that took a massive hit this season.
Player Comparison: Ben Gordon. Both Gordon and Warren are big-time scorers who don't fit the mold of a prototypical NBA shooting guard. The Sooner sophomore has the potential to take over games on the offensive end just like Gordon.
