A lot of BEdgers were not fans of the pick. He can't pass, he's from a small school, his shot release is low... meh. I have a REALLY good feeling about Lillard. Like he and Aldridge could be the best Pick and Roll tandem in the league, and that Damian could pan out to a top 7 PG in the next couple years.
If you have not checked out this workout video, please do. Yes they're open shots, but he misses maybe two.
He's intelligent on the court and off the court, and has that motor and work ethic that some of our previous rookies didn't seem to have. (Bayless, Telfair, Catfish)
On the flip side, I watched some Meyers Leonard tape... I am not excited, i think he will be an all-time D-league great.
And i've already been quoted saying Barton will unseat Matthews from his starting job by half way through next year.
Thoughts!? Just want to get a rookie vibe thread going.
