But you look at him and the shooting motion looks great, hes a big kid that can jump out of the gym, and he can throw some beautiful passes.
    He was anything but "not very good" at Syracuse.

    That being said, as a prospect, he fills a certain role. That role is to pass the ball and defend. He's very good at both, though we'll see how his defense transitions considering Syracuse plays zone. His knack for steals should translate. He's not a scorer. He'll never be a scorer. Has a terrible jumper. Him and Turner in the same backcourt is a disaster, but I expect Turner to be traded. The hope is for him to become a 6'6" version of Rondo or a poor mans Kidd. Or at least Rubio. But there's a very real chance he just ends up as Shaun Livingston. Either way, Rondo/Rubio is the role he'll be expected to play. Run the offense. Look for the pass. Pick and Roll game with Noel and Thad. Crash the boards and start the breaks. I definitely think he can succeed in the NBA playing that role.

    With his athleticism and size, the potential is there. For the 11th pick in a weak draft, it was probably the right pick.

    I can very much see them trading Rondo.

    i'm with ferret on the 6ers pg pick..all height and athletic ability but little polish and if you can't hit a 15 footer what's the real value if you can't finish off the dribble either??? anyways...

    i hear that 2014 draft is like 5-7 deep with all stars...this must be one hell of a college in coming freshman crop...bout time we had some high end talents in the college game...

    i'm all for boston doing whatever they can to to get as many new high end talent blood in the building...even if it means trading rondo for less than market value...he couldn't even get along with a players coach like doc rivers...get rid of him
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    All I know is that there are a lot a Syracuse people who started wondering if the team would be better without the ball in his hands. He shut them up for a little while but sometimes it was just ugly as hell. I'm not going to pretend to know what hes going to be as a pro.....I've seen guys with far uglier jump shots transform themselves into elite shooters. But right now hes a long ways from even being a point guard in the NBA.

    He was considered by many the best pg in the nation. He didn't get the recognition from casual fans because he didn't put up the sexy ppg numbers that Trey Burke put up, but nobody can deny the impact he had on both ends of the floor on a final 4 team. Led the nation in assists and steals. 3rd in apg, 4th in spg.

    He's the best true pg prospect in the draft. True PGs are becoming a bit of a dying breed unfortunately, but for teams that utilize them like Philly plans to do, he can become a very solid pro.

    As for his jumper, his form is pretty solid. If Turner can improve his shot the way he did last season with his broke jumper, MCW can too. But he doesn't have to in order to be a good player. Pass and defend is his role.

    Aside from you (after the draft), who on earth had this opinion? There were a few games where he looked pretty awesome, but when he was off it was really ugly. And whether they be casual or not, a lot of Syracuse fans are more than happy to see him gone even if they don't have player to replace him.

    People who actually watch college basketball and watched him lead Syracuse to the final 4 while leading the nation in assists and steals. I put Larkin and Burke in front of him personally. Too many bad shooting nights for my liking to be considered the best. Maybe Wolters and Smart. Either way, none of this has anything to do with the fact he's still the best passer and defender out of all of them. As far as physical gifts go, he's the best prospect. As an overall prospect, I like Burke, Larkin, and Smart better. Maybe Dennis Schroeder. But that may just be me hoping to see another great German player in the league.

    6ers basically said "We know we're an 8th seed at best, the Bynum trade screwed us. Let's just accept that and rebuild right away." Noel has a lot of potential. People just expected him to be Anthony Davis or DeMarcus Cousins as a Freshmen and he wasn't. But MCW and Noel are 2 okay pieces and they potentially have 2 lotto picks in an insanely deep draft (though with the moves the Pelicans have made, that may no longer be the case)
