The Next Generation: John Wall and Evan Turner

This NBA draft in my opinion is way better than the last one except at the PG area. After John Wall, there’s not really a good selection but overall its a very good draft especially the top 5 with Wall then Evan Turner, DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Favors and Wesley Johnson are very talented but we’ll only talk about the top 2: John Wall and Evan Turner for now. Now lets take a good look at these guys:

John Wall

Strengths: John Wall is predicted to go to Washington at number 1. This guy is a super athletic point guard who handles the ball very well and can pass well too. And at 6’4, he can easily torture the smaller point guards in the NBA. He draws alot of comparisons to Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo. I for one think its a mixture of those two with the athletic ability of a Russell Westbrook and the size of Tyreke Evans. He is one unique Point Guard, I think he’s gonna be an all star in the future.

Weaknesses: John Wall isn’t fully developed yet he needs to improve his jump shot. He needs to get better consistency. He has the size to be a lockdown defender and needs to learn how to utilize it especially if he’s tasked to guard Kobe, Lebron and etc. He needs to put up more weight, get stronger and more physical.

Evan Turner

Strengths: Evan Turner has an extremely smooth game. He takes what the defense gives him. He plays like Brandon Roy, very skilled offensively he makes tough 2’s and has an awesome mid-range jumper. People don’t recognize that  his stats are almost near a triple double. He rebounds very well and facilitates the offense very fluidly.

Weaknesses: People think he’s injury prone after breaking his back in one of the games. What people don’t know is he came out ahead of schedule. He was suppose to be out 2 months but he came back after 4 weeks. He needs to become a better 3 point shooter. But, he doesn’t really need it because of his very good mid-range game. He doesn’t have a long wingspan. So, he struggles sometimes against long defenders. Like John Wall, he needs to add bulk so he can go pound for pound against the strong small forwards.
