    Re: Baylor's Austin a one and done?

    Does anyone remember a guy by the name of Roy Hibbert? He was a 7 footer and he couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time as a freshman. Now he's a decent NBA player. The point is that a 7 footer with Austin's agility is hard to come by and if you can put those things, to use, you really have something. He's not Durant or Howard but he's a 7 footer who can move and has a shot to work with which means potential.

    Or so I have read.

    Hibbert was thick though. This guy is a stick. Clyburn was pushing him around today.

    This. As has been suggested elsewhere in this thread, the NBA draft is all about potential. It's not like the NFL where teams can expect to get a couple immediate starters in their drafts. The NBA is such an elite league, that everyone outside of the lottery is pretty much a gamble. But you can't teach 7'1. That's what makes him desirable to NBA GMs. They could care less if he's just average in college. Technique can be taught.

    I agree that I Austin is a big time talent, I watched the baylor v oklahoma game and the guy is a great talent for a true freshman.

    On the halftime show (i think) they were going over the 3 guys who are one and done and austin was on their list, so this tells me that the nba scouts are hanging around with lots of money in their pockets for him.

    I think that Austin is One and Done and have a reasonable career in the nba, and I'm glad he's going to be gone.

    He's only 19. He's got a decent shot at being the next David Robinson

    If he leaves after this year, what does Baylor return? Not much I think...

    And he developed at G'Town. He didn't enter the draft after his freshman year. That's what I'm questioning. I don't doubt that Austin could develop into a NBA player, but he just isn't anywhere near that now. Any GM that drafts him early in the draft won't be there by the time he is ready to contribute.

    He's probably a first Roy dee at this point if he declares. It'll ruin his NBA career if he does but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Re: Baylor's Austin a one and done?

    For those criticizing his play last night - I can't blame you - he wasn't very good.

    However, until last night, he's been VERY good in conference play.

    That chant is absurdly stupid.

    Once again there is no way he should be drafted this year. The guy has no moves and slow to react. Niang and Ejim took him made him look bad tonight. About the only things he does well is dunk and stand there with his had straight up hoping the ball falls in them.

    I just don't think you get how the NBA draft works. It's full of reaches. In Austin's case, he's a 7'1 freshman who averages 14and 9, and has good mid range ability. He'll definitely get drafted.
