Debate Time: Is Greg Monroe a Lottery Pick?



Like I alluded to earlier, last night I had a splendid conversation with an NBA scout from a struggling Western Conference team.  I casually asked if Greg Monroe was still a lottery pick.  He stated that after the performance he had just witnessed, and numerous games before, it was unlikely that Greg Monroe remains in the lottery.

Some points he made:

  • Monroe is a great athlete and incredible passer
  • But Monroe just doesn't have "it" [remains undefined]
  • Georgetown system does not showcase his potential
  • Georgetown system highlights guard play, although he admitted that Jeff Green fit into the offense well
  • Only other players on the floor worthy of NBA attention were Jeremy Hazell and Herb Pope - no one else from Georgetown, our upperclassman guards were probably not athletic enough
  • John Wall is unbelievable and will without a doubt be the number one pick
I am sure this will rile up some emotions in y'all, including the attack on the Thompson offense.  So...
