Finally!!! Some News About DC

Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N

Chad Ford has an article on ESPN's NBA draft page analyzing DC and his pluses and minuses. Unfortunately it is premium content, so I will give you guys a recap of it without quoting it.

Ford says that DC was "unconscious shooting from anywhere on the court." Ford says that DC was making NBA 3s, midrange jumpers, and drives with perfection. We all know about DC's legendary shooting percentages and I am happy to see that he is carrying that forward to the NBA game.

Ford's only real knock on DC is his size. However, DC's trainer (former Hornets Assistant Coach Dave Miller) says that DC has put on extra strength without losing any speed. In fact, Ford says DC is the fastest player in the draft and DC agrees with him.

The thing that might be helping DC's stock the most has nothing to do with DC and everything to do with what Aaron Brooks has done in the playoffs for Houston. Ford compares DC to Brooks and NBA GMs are notorious copycats with quick point guards being the in vogue thing. Ford states that DC isn't the scorer that Brooks is, but is a better playmaker.

Ford references the popular sentiment that CBH's system held down DC's stats which is likely true (Ford comments that DC's stats would have been more impressive if he played for UNC, a program notorious under Roy Williams for producing "great" college players but terrible pros), but not necessarily a bad thing. Ford notes that playing under CBH has led to DC being a top defensive guard and learning how to play half court. Both of these things will help him flourish in the NBA.

Ford concludes by saying that DC is competing with other guards like Lawson, Flynn, and Mills for a spot in the late lottery or mid first round (much better than the late 20s that some draft "experts" who never attend workouts have DC). Ford also states that DC is best shooter and defender of that bunch. As for DC's mentality going into this, he says he is going to be a "special player" for whoever picks him.

It is great to see such a good review of DC and that he seems to be impressing people through his hard work, career development, and good attitude. Talk about doing things the "right way" as opposed to a certain other UCLA guard.

In other news, Josh Shipp has signed with Bob Meyers (who played at UCLA under Harrick) from Wasserman Media Group (one of the biggest sports agencies) who also represents Jordan Farmar. A lot of the draft sites seem to be down or ignoring JS, but look for some team to take a chance on him late in the second round IMHO.
