An NBA scout says Ben McLemore will be a better version of Ray Allen Of course the NBA scout couldn’t attach his name to this statement based on NBA rules, but it’s worth noting that at least one scout believes that 20 year-old, Ben McLemore is going to be one hell of a player. Speaking on condition of anonymity this particular scout claims McLemore will be a better version of probable future Hall of Fame guard, Ray Allen. Via Gary Bedore/KU Sports: “McLemore and (Nerlens) Noel (6-11 freshman, Kentucky) will go 1-2 in the draft. Noel will probably be the No. 1 pick despite his injury,” an NBA talent evaluator who cannot reveal his identity (in accordance with NBA rules) told the Journal-World. “McLemore is a better version of Ray Allen. He will play shooting guard the way it is supposed to be played,” the talent evaluator said. “The only negative to his game is sometimes he defers. He could definitely use another year in college to learn to take over games. “Obviously, he had to go (pro),” the scout quickly added. “The draft is only about potential now.” The anonymous NBA scout also stated that if high school stud, Andrew Wiggins were allowed to declare for the NBA draft this year, he would be the overall number one pick. In what many scouts are projecting to be a very weak draft class, it may be worth taking a gamble on McLemore number one if only to try to put your team in position to draft Wiggins next season. However, that may not go over well with your fan base.   The post NBA scout says Ben McLemore is a better version of Ray Allen appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.

Photo: LeBron James snaps photo post workout

The Miami Heat are looking like they more than likely will defend their NBA crown led by LeBron James.

James uploaded a photo of himself after a hard days work in the gym and it seems he is quite proud of his work. That...

Heat 109, Celtics 101

LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had not played together in a couple of weeks, so the Miami Heat needed some time to get back into rhythm. About 12 minutes, to be precise. The Heat scored 41 points in the second quarter - their highest-scoring period of the season - to erase what was an early 13-point deficit, and went on to beat the Boston Celtics 109-101 on Friday night...

LeBron James throws it off backboard to himself for Slam Dunk

Early on in the Miami Heat’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks, LeBron James set the tone for the game with this sick dunk.  James wanted to pass the ball to Mike Miller but the defender had been waiting for it, so LeBron was caught in the air with no where to go.  This left him with no choice but to throw the ball off of the backboard and then go up and dunk it home for the highlight...

The Miami Heat: Sellouts of the NBA?

Ok, so let's get the simpleton stuff out of the way. The Wizards, once again, played down to the level of their opponent, which sounds extremely odd to say considering they played the NBA's best team, the Miami Heat. Miami took advantage of a stretch of a couple minutes when the Wiz Kids went cold in the 4th quarter and behind the 3-point shooting of Rashard Lewis (yes, that...

Celtics vs. Heat this time around doesn’t have the same Miami vs. Boston buzz that we’re used to but is still important

The Celtics-Heat rivalry has been strong ever since the self-proclaimed King James decided to famously take his talents to South Beach.  Miami had the talent, but Boston had the experience—up until last year when the new big three, donning Miami red, captured the allusive NBA championship and Boston and Miami’s roles were immediately changed.  Tonight will most definitely have...
