Decent enough results from yesterday: NBA teaser play WIN, College B Ball 1-2 in small wager teaser action, finally NHL one start up par loss with another start up par win. For today: College B Ball teaser play with: Iowa St. Pick, Maryland -13.5, one open. NHL: Going in a second and third tier spot of an ongoing par will be NYR -180 and Montreal -160. NBA: Cleveland -1.5, Spurs plus a half, GST -7. Another reminder for NBA SU players, if you haven't been on the Warriors you have been missing out. Teaser players: If you haven't been ON GST for at least a couple of weeks now, you must be frikinn brain dead. There's still time to ride the Warrior train...you best hurry however. Congrats to winners and GL tonight.
2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Giannis Antetokoumpo
Position: Small Forward
Size: 6-9, 196
School: Greece, 1994
Possesses all the ideal physical tools
Handles the ball well for his size (point forward?)
Ability to rebound and lead the break
Can smoothly knife through defenses off the bounce
Finishing at the rim
Can defend multiple positions
Loaded with potential
Hasn't played at a high level in Europe
Still very raw in his all-around development
Aggressiveness on the glass
Lacks real blow-by ability
Inconsistent outside shooter
Low release on his shot
Summary: Antetokuompo is perhaps the greatest mystery of the 2013 NBA Draft. He possesses all the physical tools and potential to be a very good NBA player due to his size, versatility, and room to grow. Antetokuompo likely won't contribute in the NBA anytime soon and figures to be a draft-and-stash guy who could possibly pay huge dividends down the road for a team willing to roll the dice. I wouldn't at all be surprised if he sneaks into the lottery, though the late teens/early twenties seem like a more realistic landing spot.
Player Comparison: Evan Turner/Devin Ebanks mix. Since Antetokuompo is such a unique prospect, this is a tough one. Turner and Ebanks both were considered "point forward"-type prospects early in their careers due to their ability to handle the ball for their size and contribute in multiple different facets of the game. I think Turner sprinkled in with some Nicolas Batum is Antetokoumpo's ceiling while an Ebanks-type player is his basement.
