The scout told VaughtsViews.com for example, that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist – a candidate for the No. 2 overall selection in this month’s draft – isn’t as good a defensive player as many believe because he had Anthony Davis as a security blanket behind him. He also said the Marquis Teague benefited from the “threat of the lob,” which made him out to look like a more talented floor general.
This one scout believes...“In reality, the Kentucky system is smoke and mirrors. I remember being out in Vegas for a Summer League and I was sitting and watching games with a long-time director of scouting in the league. He said he was stunned at how unprepared Kentucky players were for the NBA, and he had drafted one of them.”
