I spoke with an Asst GM, a GM, and several scouts at Barclays, Miami, and while I was visiting Kansas. All of them feel that Shamorie is an NBA player. If he continues to play at the level he is at now and we have a successful season, he should be in the NBA next year.


Thnx - the league has definitely gone his way in terms of style of play.
That's super cool. For a kid, ranked what out of high-school, 40s?

I believe Mo was also in that 40s range and he was one and done.

Good to hear, but I wonder if any of them would personally have their own team draft him?

I am hoping everyone is right. I don't see an Isiah Thomas comparison. He is built like a fire hydrant. The player I look at that gives me hope for Ponds is Rajon Rondo. Identical in height and weight to Ponds, same herky-jerky type of game on offense, and a good rebounder for size and nose for the ball. However, Rondo can't shoot a lick, and Ponds, while not a big time shooter, has range and is a big time scorer.

Getting in the 1.20 range would be extremely solid for a point guard.

Seeing where he stands relative to every player in the country I think he’s in a pretty solid spot already. The biggest gripe I’ve heard last 2 years regarding shamorie is his lack of effeciency. Well his efficiency is off the charts so far this year.

One thing is clear. Without Ponds, and reducing our depth by one, we are no better than a 6 to 8 win conference team depending how the others, especially Heron, steps up.

If his back affected play down the stretch in the 4 big east games that he played, that is also very bad news if he doesn't get better fast.

Zion and RJ will cancel each other out, he will outplay Howard, and the Duke game will be an opportunity to seal it.
Grant Williams is the one that worries me most.

I also believe Mullin would very much be in the discussion for National Coach of they Year with 25 wins. We'll know more later tonight.


I can't tell. Are posts like these facetious?
