‘He can’t finish a sandwich’

Posted by Tim on January 19, 2007

I was just scanning this Seth Davis column on NBA scouts’ take on various college players. Here’s what he heard about “He’ll sneak onto somebody’s team because he’s so long and active, but the kid has no offensive touch whatsoever. He can’t finish a sandwich.”

On Eric Devendorf: “I don’t think Devendorf can play in the league. He has a rep for being a good shooter, but he has the ugliest jump shot I’ve seen in my life. He has sidespin on the ball.”

On Paul Harris: “I really loved him in high school, but there’s no doubt he’s taken a step backward as far as trying to find his niche in that system. He’s an NBA combo guard who will be in the league for sure, but unless he improves his jump shot it’s going to be a problem.”

Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the team. Let’s hope the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

    It’s really a shame that no one has managed to teach Terrence a little left-handed baby hook… I feel like that might be the one offensive move he could handle. Plus, between his quickness and left-handedness, it’d be tough to stop.

    And if Roberts can’t finish a sandwich, where does that leave Mookie?
