The latest on whats going on in the Nba
Profile: Bradley Beal was born June 28, 1993, The McDonalds All- American, attended the University of Florida where he became First team All-SEC.
Pro position: SG/PG

Height: 6’ 4.75” 

Weight: 201.8

Wingspan: 6’ 8”

Standing Reach: 8’ 3”

Projected pick: Top-3
Game is Reminiscent of: Eric Gordan/ Jamal Crawford
Strengths: Beal is very Versatile and is very good at creating his own shot. Beal can shoot very well from pretty much anywhere on the court and also can put the ball on the ground and open up more opportunities for himself and his teammates.
Weakness: Beal dominates the ball, although this isn’t a big weakness, taking too many shots hurts his teammates more than him. Beal is athletic but not as athletic as some of the more elite SG in the NBA(E.g. Dwyane Wade). He is also inconsistent like most pure shooters and needs to work on showing up on a nightly basis.

Profile: Thomas Earl Robinson was born March 17, 1991, He played 3 years at the University of Kansas where he became an All-American, Big 12 Player of the year and a runner-up for the John R. Wooden award.
Pro position: PF

Height: 6’ 8.75”

Weight: 244.0

Wingspan: 7’ 3.25”

Standing Reach: 8’ 10”

Projected pick: Second or Third Overall. (Should be Second pick, MJ is unreliable.)
Game is Reminiscent of: Antonio Mcdyess/ Kenyon Martin. (more finesse around the rim when making layups and tip-ins VERY crafty)
Strengths: Robinson is a high Motor, high energy player. He is chiseled and uses his muscle to create space and block out opponents. Robinson is, as stated, very crafty around the rim and is good at getting in position to get offensice rebounds and tip-in layups. 
Weakness: He’s smaller then your prototypical NBA Power Forward but what he lacks in height he makes up for in Athleticism and drive. Robinson also lacks a legitimate mid-Range game and will benefit by becoming a better shooter.

Profile: Anthony Davis Jr. was born March 11, 1993 (age 19), He attended the University of Kentucky where he became an All-American, SEC and NCAA Player of The Year and 2012 NCAA Champion.
Pro position: PF/C
Height: 6’ 10.5”
Weight: 221.8
Wingspan: 7’ 5.5”
Standing Reach: 9’ 0” ( WOW)
Projected pick: 1st Overall
Game is Reminiscent of: Hakeem Olajuwon (Footwork isn’t as good as Hakeem’s)
Strengths: Davis’ biggest strength is his defensive prowess and his ability to make quick instinctive plays to block shots. He times his blocks perfectly by waiting till after the shot to go for the block and using is wingspan to get to the ball. Davis also has great hands and athleticism and although he is skinny, he should make a good pick and roll player due to his long reach and ability to catch the ball to convert alley-oop plays. His character is another upside, davis is willing to put aside his ego to help the team win and compete.
Weakness: Compared to his defensive skill, Davis’ offensive repertoire isn’t nearly as polished. His post moves are limited to short hook shots and backing down but could(will) flourish if he develops some more moves and further improves on his already above average footwork. Davis is Very thin and although it doesnt seem to hurt his game, but if he put on some muscle he could become the most dominate Big man in the NBA.

Will Dwight Howard be traded? What will Free agency hold?
