Everyone has an opinion on the topic of four year college players. I have a list of four year players who I think can come into the NBA right away and contribute like you did. I’ll say their names and you give your opinion on them:
C.J. Fair (Syracuse)
I like him. It’s hard to say how guys will translate from college to pro but he’s a great athlete, his demeanor is great for a college player and his team wins.
Marshall Henderson (Ole Miss)
He can really shoot the ball, but I don’t know how great he’ll translate to the NBA.
Shabazz Napier (UConn)
He kind of reminds me of a Phil Pressey type of point guard. He rebounds the ball, makes plays, leads the team in scoring and steals. Kind of a do everything type of guard and I think he’s an NBA player.
Russ Smith (Louisville)
Russ Smith is a good scorer. I think he’s an NBA player, also. He’s a good athlete, really quick and he’s a winner too. He’s won a national championship, so I think he’ll get an opportunity. But I like I said, it’s hard to tell who will come to the NBA and it will transfer.
You started #4BarFriday on Instagram. Have any rappers hit you up about it, like ‘yo, that’s dope?
Nah, I mess with the same people man. I’m not reaching out to anyone. If I know somebody else famous, like LeBron or DJ Clue or whoever, I’ll tell them ‘you should put a four bar out’ or whatever. But I’m not forcing it. I want it to grow and people just hear about it and include themselves.
