More than 60 players were invited to next week's combine, but some of potential lottery picks such as Lonzo Ball, Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum, Dennis Smith Jr., Malik Monk, Lauri Markkanen and Jonathan Isaac will reportedly not attend.
"To not go through medical and some of the athletic testing, you don't have that in football", he said.
Durant told EPSN.com on Thursday, "Stay your a- home, work out and get better on your own time".
"I said, in my sleep, because I wouldn't want to suffer from any pain or anything so I'd just rather be asleep around my son and my family". "All the strength coaches were laughing at me and (stuff)". Keep laughing.' It was a amusing thing, because I was the only one that couldn't lift it and I was struggling to lift it. "I will try my best to be the best I possibly can".
"Especially in pick-and-roll situations, I was able to show that today, and in transition as well", he said Thursday before news broke of his decision to stay in the draft.
Having watched a lot of Duke teams, Williams said the issue of having too many hands to feed was particularly troublesome with this year, with several key bigs injured and much of the offensive focus drifting to the back court. "At the end of the day, the Bulls are a great organization already but if I'm blessed to be drafted by them or whoever it might be, I can add a few things to it". It still doesn't matter. You're going to tell me that all those questions are going to be answered just because they attended the combine?
Durant's career seems to have worked out so far, with a Rookie of the Year and an NBA MVP trophy on his mantle.
Kevin Durant, who 10 years ago failed to bench-press 185 pounds even once but still was drafted No. 2 overall by the Seattle SuperSonics, isn't discouraged by this recent trend.
Most importantly, Fox weighed in at under 170 pounds, so if he wants to play his hyper-aggressive style defensively or attack the rim, he will need to put on some weight. He also needs to get stronger and a little more polished to play in the National Basketball Association.
"It's 50-50, and depends on the feedback that I get", Alkins said during Combine interviews Thursday at the Quest Multisport complex. I got more on the bench than I thought I would so that's always a success. "You also get a feel for their energy, their juice, the spirit they have just by talking to them".
"I'll be out here watching them and supporting them, and so I'm looking forward to it", he said. But the top-tier talent is going to get drafted based on their entire body of work, regardless if that includes a trip to Chicago this weekend or not.
Anunoby only averaged 11.1 points during his shortened sophomore year at IN, but he has the athleticism to run the floor for easy baskets, and since he still hasn't turned 20, he has plenty of time to develop his offensive game. "I like him as a second-round pick".
"You could look at [vertical], but how can you use that in a basketball set?" he asked with a puzzled look on his face.
