Many years ago I looked forward to your high unit plays
especially your pick of the month, I may not be following your plays
this year but I still read your stuff. Brother you're in rare form this
year especially as of late. I think it's time to tweak your system a
little, it's cosmically bad right now for you and getting worst by the
I'm not exactly killing the books right now myself with all the
injuries and upsets etc. but I'm lucky enough right now to still have my
head above water (still in profit in the NFL).
Keep your head up
brother and either restructure your system or I hate to say it but stay
with your system and fade your own picks because you're playing on a way
different level right now.
PS. If indeed you do decide to stay
with your system but instead just flip your picks at the end of your
write-ups will you let us know.
Comfortable putting the ball on the deck with either hand
Effectively uses pump fakes to create space or get defenders in the air
Length helps him be an effective shot blocker
Consistency with his jump shot
Too selfish at times
Tends to play with a guard's mentality, too often hanging out on perimeter
Will need to learn how to bang with NBA power forwards without getting into foul trouble
Could polish up his post moves on the block
Summary: Jones is a likely a top-10 pick due to his versatility on the floor. He chose to return to Kentucky and looks like a player who is ready to contribute at the next level. If he can maintain a high level of play, I cannot see him dropping out of the top 10 with the possibility of being one of the first five players taken in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Player Comparison: Josh Smith. Besides the left-handed parallel, Smith was an incredible all-around talent with an NBA-ready build when he entered the league. Jones is an inside/outside threat who can put the ball on the deck just like Smith and effects the game in so many different ways. Both players seem to have a little attitude to their game but have tremendous talent.
