    That's impressive. Looks like Ellerman's got the touch, too!

    Re: Tyrus can shoot (video)

    Well, we already knew he can shoot it...Probably the best pure shooter on our team and IMO he has NBA potential. I wouldn't say this is uncommon at the upper levels though with nobody on you in a shoot around, but not terribly common at the same time. I bet he could make a lot more than 16 in a row.... I love his shot. His stroke is beautiful.

    What's great is he never missed. He just stopped shooting. He could have kept going.

    Re: Tyrus can shoot (video)

    I have a question. If you're a team like the Heat or another team picking 25th or later, why not pick someone like him. I mean, you're probably not getting a complete player who is going to be real special anyway at that point. Why not go after a guy who can do that one thing exceptionally well. Even Babb is another example. He'e not going to be Shame Battier but I think he could fall between him and Mike Miller or something.

    And it took him about 8 to hit the rim.

    Re: Tyrus can shoot (video)

    I just got a feeling if he plays enough minutes he is going to go off for like 8 or 9 in a game here at some point. Sort of like Dedric against UCLA in the sweet sixteen versus UCLA.

    Because he's a 5'11" shooting guard.

    Right. Do you think he's going to be significantly less useless than a guy like Luke Walton or Brian Scalebrine coming off the bench though? Worst case, you have a guy that can shoot the ball pretty well and he will give you energy. Like I said, you aren't getting Carmelo Anthony at that point so why not take a guy with a proven skill that is very unlikely to deteriorate quickly. Maybe not late first round but what about second round? I think I would take him over Waltons career or Scalebrine's career on the floor. Yes, I get Scalbrine was an awesome locker room guy.

    Probably because NBA teams don't like playing defense with only 4 guys.

    I love Tyrus and he's incredibly important to our team, but his defense is atrocious. His situational usefulness would be extremely limited by his lack of defense.

    Yes, considering he would play <0 defense at the pro level and would be shutdown by guys 4 or 5 inches taller than him at his position who are better athletes.

    Tyrus is definitely taller than 5'11". He's not the 6'2" he's listed at but he is for sure 6'+

    Also, Jason Terry is listed at 6'2" on NBA rosters.
