I dont think you can put Wes into a youth wort developing thread. He as reached or past his prime already me thinks. I dont think he will get better at this Point of his career.

DFS, Curry, Brussino and Barnes are the ones with upside. Powell seems to have reached his ceiling pretty much. Would have expected some Kind of breakout season by now.

Yep. Every half decent NBA player is a superstar in the D-league. Bottom feeder Euro teams would blow these guys out.

Highest arching 3 I've seen other than Dirk. His shots don't even hit rim. My only concern is it's a somewhat slow delivery and I'm not sure he has enough foot speed to be a 3. And he certainly doesn't have the body for a small 4. He has really good instincts though and really good passing+bbiq. He might just be too limited physically though. But if he could speed us his delivery I think he could at least be rotation worthy.

Brussino tonight 7-10 shooting for 17pts 8rebs 4 ast. Hammons 15mins 6 fouls, 5 rebs 2-3 shooting for 7pts. In Hammons defense he barely touches the ball. Still would like to see him rebound much better than that in the D league.

Brussino honestly has the potential to have offensive capabilities if he can gain more confidence against NBA teams. His range is all over the half court. But it's about confidence right now. Mavs should keep him 5 years to see how he develops. Never know he could be our next Dirk on offense.

O_____o wut? There's a laundry list of guys who could put the ball in the basket but weren't athletically or physically gifted enough to make it in the league. Dirk is one of the most physically gifted players ever. He's seven feet tall with the balance and coordination to make ridiculously difficult shots.

It's easier to teach someone who is athletically & physically gifted how to play basketball than to get someone with basketball skills to the athletic/physical level needed to be a force in the NBA. See Clint Capela, Greek Freak, Shane Larkin, Adam Morrison, Jimmie Fredette, etc. etc. etc.

I do not share high hopes for Brussino. Before season begun, he looked really nice addition but he seems to be boy among men when playing against NBA players.

Still shocked we gave him all that money when he hadn't found a niche on this team yet. I thought they'd be stretching it giving him mid-level money.

Beginning to think he has reached his peak.

My predicted ceiling for some of our youth (not necessarily style as much as impact):

Yogi - JJB
Curry - JET
DFS - Aminu
Anderson - Crowder
Powell - Wright
Hammons - Bernard James
Barnes - Mashburn (When Fully Healthy)

Anderson has like 5 things he needs to get better at. Crowder is an actual contributor. Really wish we'd fill his spot next year. He's already hit his ceiling.
