    Re: Mike T NBA Pre-Draft Camp

    It's odd that they mention his long-range shooting being a liability... just remembering the Minnesota game here! I'm sure he's worked on his consistency since then, too?

    Good for Mike!! I hope he goes early!

    Re: Mike T NBA Pre-Draft Camp

    There is a mention of Jiri way at the bottom too.

    Kind of a back-handed compliment, but you take what you can get right?

    Maybe he will not take a 40 foot shot anymore.

    Note he weighs 205 now. He must be eating at MacDs. Thought he was 170 at one time.

    Re: Mike T NBA Pre-Draft Camp

    Also from Draft Express:

    Also a very pleasant surprise was the play of D-League product Mike Taylor—a 6-2 combo guard in the Louis Williams mold with freakish athleticism and terrific scoring instincts. He got to the basket at will, made some nice plays pulling up from mid-range, finished with a nifty floater, and hit one of his three 3-pointers (something scouts will be scrutinizing closely here). On the downside, he seemed to force the issue excessively at times—turning the ball over a game-high 5 times in the process), struggled a bit with his rail-thin frame fighting through screens and barely saw any minutes at the point at all. He clearly looks like an undersized shooting guard, but might just have the physical tools, scoring ability and overall ability to overcome that. It will be very interesting to continue to follow him.

    It's actually pretty amusing because they include a picture with his name that clearly isn't him.

    Good stuff. Sounds like Mike is a sure draft. Jiri might be a stretch.

    I wouldn't say it's a lock that he's drafted.

    Re: Mike T NBA Pre-Draft Camp

    What position would he play in the NBA?

    Seems like he isn't a good enough ball handler to play the point, and isn't big enough to play the off guard.

    Re: Mike T NBA Pre-Draft Camp

    They mention that he is probably a tweener. I'll be surprised if he's drafted but if he continues to be productive he could definitely work his way in. He's only like 21 or 22 right?

    Re: Mike T NBA Pre-Draft Camp

    Good for Mike! I hope he gets a shot playing because he was so fun to watch. Other than the turnover problem, which im sure he's worked on, then I could see him being a good NBA player
