The NBA Draft? He is having an incredible tourney and this draft class is probably going to be the worst in at least 10 years.
NBA Scouts don't watch March Madness.
IMO, as long as he's a 40% free throw shooter, he's not a 1st round pick. Helluva game tho, kid has really come into his own this March.
Fortunately, no. Although he's having great success he's not an NBA ready big man by any stretch. Much of what he did tonight was on great feeds by Burke and hustle. Still no back to the basket game. Scouts definitely see all of that despite his big numbers. He'll be back next year, that's just about a lock.
This is true, but you have to realize this draft class is pure .

I disagree. He may not have much back to the basket game now but he has shown a solid mid range jumper, has a little solid one handed shot when he is going toward the hoop. That combined with his rebounding and hustle plays he makes is enough to get him drafted in the first round in my opinion. Especially considering the NBA drafts so much on potential.
That's the thing though, his NBA potential is really nothing more than a Tyler Hansbrough. Really great college player, but a role player in the NBA
Absolutely. That's basically the only reason I'm worried about Glenn leaving. In a draft with normal depth he doesn't go.
He has also made $9 million dollars.

I feel the same way about him like I do Robinson. If they come back they will be very thankful. Look what Trey did for his stock with just one more year. Mitch could become one of the better big men in college basketball next year.
I'm not so sure about that.
Next year's draft is going to be loaded as well.
I agree. If he develops a low post game he can be a 20/10 guy for years. He has a solid mid-range jumper he can use off pick and rolls and he can easily work 8 points for himself off hustle plays in the NBA since nobody else hustles.
Think the 20/10 is pushing it, but he can be a very good player and a pain in the ass that teams have to play against.
I think both McGary and Robinson III will return for their sophomore seasons.
We know that Glenn came to Michigan with the intention of being 2-and-done. I think McGary has a similar plan.

I agree. Hopefully. I am just saying i think if he decided to go he would be a first rounder now.
Ok, agree to disagree because I respect your opinion on these things. Just curious who do you think would be a better NBA comparison.
It's all good. Not sure yet. Depends on how much McGary develops. I don't think we have seen the best of Mitch by any means.
I'm drinking the blue kool-aid, baby!
Oh I completely agree on that. This kids gonna be a dominant force inside in a couple years. But the difference between doing that in college and in the pros is huge.
Eh I honestly think he'd be wiser to put in another year. Plenty of room to improve there and it's easier to do so in college with less pressure and more playing time.
If draft depth is the concern, then he's already made up his mind and is just looking for excuses. Darius Morris went in a year with little depth, and the following year was supposed to be better, and that really stunted his development. And then the following year Burke thought about going with the lack of PG depth, but stayed, and he's the POY and now a lottery pick. I feel like the draft depth argument happens most every year except on rare occasions. In my opinion, unless you're a lottery pick, you shouldn't leave after your first year. No one except Burke is really ready for the NBA on our team. They should pass up the quick payday and make an investment in their future. But that's a lot to ask from someone that young though.
Glenn Robinson III can become an All-American next year. He can essentially be what Ben McLemore of Kansas was this year.
McLemore was actually declared ineligible by the NCAA for his first year so he redshirted. I think this was his second year in college and he exploded onto the scene as a sophomore. (Sidenote: His breakaway dunk in second half was Lebron-esque.)
If Glenn comes back and works on his ball-handling plus his shooting, he will go top-5 (and at worst top-10) next year regardless of who else declares.
6'7" guards with his build, athleticism, and improving shooting ability are coveted by the NBA. Every NBA team looks for a tall SG.
I don't know the NBA that well. How many "20/10 big men for years" are there? Tim Duncan has been one. Is it far more common of a feat than that, or are we putting him in Duncan like status by saying he'll be getting those stats for years.
