Do you think he'll be a future bust? Can someone who's going to be a future role-player and not a star be picked out of the lottery?

depends on how high he gets drafted.

He'll have a spot in the NBA because he can shoot. Shooters always seem to find a team.

But he can't play D.... at all.

you can't really be considered a bust if you're not drafted high. I think he goes late first round to a team who needs a shooter..

Well it's a pretty soft draft.

I think Jimmer has a good chance to get picked in the late teens and early twenties.

It's a stretch, but I kinda' see Jimmer as Stephan Curry-ish. Not as in a lottery pick, but in an up-tempo let it fly team, he could be pretty successful.

I'm kinda going off of what Nick said at the end..if he plays in an up-tempo, jack-every-three-you-see team, then he can do pretty well

But if he ends up on a defensive team that will shoot the three happily like JJ Redick did, he is extremely one-sided (like Redick is..), and can be a solid role player if he hits his shots.

I wonder how he compares athletically to Steph Curry. The Mountain West is definitely better than Davidson's Southern Conference. I don't see his game translating very well, because he doesn't get inside based off speed, but good foot work and body strength. In the NBA, footwork for everyone is better and he's not going to be able to push his way inside anymore. He does have NBA range, but I think he'd struggle facing bigger opponents night in and night out.

If he can be something like Curry, then he'll be ok

Lottery pick in the NBA Draft. Top 10 pick because of the labor situation. If it were last year he'd be a late first round/early 2nd round guy.
