Scout Compares Dante Exum to Famous Draft Bust

Dante Exum has been regarded as the best point guard of this year’s NBA Draft class, and some scouts are saying he’s the closet thing to a young Kobe Bryant. Not all feel the same, though. Per Grantland, one scout expressed concern with the Australian and sees his potential being like one famous draft bust: “I’m not putting my nuts on the line for this guy. I’m not drafting...

NBA Draft Prospect: Dante Exum – Australia

Dante Exum Dante Exum is the mystery of the 2014 NBA Draft.  Many scouts are insistent that if Dante played college in the states, he would be the #1 pick of the 2014 draft.  Those are big words in this year’s hyped draft.  Having consistently been in the top 4 all year in most mock drafts, he has taken a slight dip as of late.  This is partially because of the rise of Vonleh’s...

Bryon Mullens Thinks He Can Shoot Threes

What is going on here? This is a man who didn't take a single three pointer in his first two seasons.

Rockets' rotten luck can't go on forever

Random Athlete OF The Day-Nikoloz Tskitishvili

Nikoloz Tskitishvili is a former NBA 7 foot bust from Georgia (not the one next to Alabama). At the age ripe age of 18 Tskitishvili played professionally for Benetton Treviso in Italy. Showing more promise than the Jonas Brothers’ rings, he averaged 6.2 ppg in just 12 mpg. He was young, showed unreal potential, and the NBA scouts were banking on his results. The dude was supposed...
