I’m just happy he’s going to be able to take his family out the projects. That’s the real win here.

That makes sense. I would have said 25-35, don't see him going later than first few picks of second round if team is successful and he has the kind of year he looks like he will. The NBA has plenty of guys who were successful being picked at that point. If all the stars align, maybe he goes closer to 20. Will really miss watching him play for the Johnnies, but he certainly deserves the chance to take care of his family. He's been a great Johnnie.

I just hope he can continue to be a team player and not feel so much pressure that he tries to do too much and hurts team chemistry. Certainly not an easy thing to balance.

Ponds is on a roll now, and a pleasure to watch. I would say that to the hoop he is slippery, having the advantage of being lefthanded. No matter how much defenders are aware of that, muscle memory causes defenders to lean towards his right hand with every head fake, stutter step, or crossover. Of course there is much more to it.

What Ponds must do, and he knows this, is not for this stretch to be just a hot streak in his season, but to sustain this end to end, and if there is post season play, to dazzle there as well. I'm pretty confident that Mullin, Greg, and Mitch remind Ponds of this constantly. He won't be evaluated on the strength of how he plays at his best, but for the consistency that he displays over the course of a season. And of course, closing out games by carrying his team is a huge contributor to his stock value.

For a player like Ponds its going to come down to a team or two falling in love with him. He could go as high as top 20 but he could also slip to the later in the second round.

Or he could go undrafted.
