    Yea i know. But this guy is pretty skinny, he weighs like 180 or something(i'll confirm that).
    I know his weight is listed low, but I don't think that's a problem (draftexpress hasn't even changed it since he got to Texas, they have him at 168)

    John Stockton - 175 lbs
    Steve Nash - 178 lbs
    Chris Paul - 175 lbs
    John Wall (who is also taller than all these guys) - 195

    180 lbs is not a bad weight for a young PG. He was even skinnier before getting to Texas. Considering he's listed at 6'1'', I think he's ok. John Wall is 6'4'', so Kabongo should not be as heavy as a guy like him.

    You don't need PGs to bulk up. Even John Wall, who is quite strong, is wiry. Quickness is everything. It's not like posting up is a common skill....shit, even most big men are horrible at it these days. Bulk is a PG's worst enemy.

    He really needs to bulk up. he's like the Alexis Ajinca of the PG position

    Kyrie.
    Kyrie Irving is a great shooter in addition to be able to create a shot in any situation. He's still a so-so passer but he improved in 2nd half, especially on the pick and roll. He did improve on defense too but only to god awful to poor.

    If Kabongo was like Kyrie, he would be in the conversation when talking about high lottery picks, something he's not.

    I would not mind the Cavaliers or Raptors drafting him late in the first round or, preferably, in the the second round.

    Well I watched NBA TV on trade deadline day, and there was a box about rudy gay's trade saying that Memphis received $3M from raptors. But I can't find it anywhere right now, maybe made a mistake it.
    I was curious and took a look. Both CBC and Raptors.com mention cash but not how much.

    No he's more like Rondo. Can't shoot, but has amazing court vision
    Still color me intrigued I love Rondos game. My favorite PG in the league.

    Dave Telep says Myck will go anywhere from 20 to 35 in June. He is young and fast but is a project. He could be a solid NBA point guard a few years from now. Kyrie comparisons are not accurate considering Myck's jump shot as it stands now.

    Well Kyrie was a consensus #1 pick and Kabongo is barely on early draft board predictions, so..................no.

    I thought we had two 2nd round picks this year?
    Nope.

    2013 to MEM.

    2014 Raps have their own and SAC. Odds are high one ends up in PHX.
