So now that announcers are saying this during live broadcasts, i guess it's a thing. What do Gopher fans think about Jordan Murphy going pro after this season?
That’s true. But 6’6 guys who don’t have a perimeter game are less valuable than 6’6 guys who do...even if the guy who doesn’t has a better rebounding number.I agree, just saying that it is possible to have success as a smaller forward. I'd argue that Murphy is a better rebounder than Green was in College at this point.
These are not mutually inclusive. A tournament run means very little, in most cases, for one's draft stock. If we go to the elite 8, it's likely because the entire team is playing well. That's just how this squad is built. There is no Colin Sexton.Depends on the tournament run, if they make top 8 or so. He could be a top 30 pick.
If guys like Dillon Brooks, Sindarius Thornwell, Monte Morris, and Nigel Williams-Gross are drafted in the second half of the second round, what makes you think Murphy would be drafted at all?If he plays this way all year, he'll get drafted, and he'll likely never have a better chance.
