    A jump shooter to complement Stuckey. Interesting...

    I like him a lot. Really impressed me with his stats on the lane agility and 3/4 court-sprint. He were top 5 in both.

    Where would we play him with Ken English on the roster?

    I think Ken would be willing to take the young fella under his wing for a while. He's done a pretty good job with Drummond.

    Good idea, I never thought of the mentor angle. I don't hate the idea of this pick.

    Perhaps we need a separate English vs. Caldwell-Pope thread to compare the players?

    There are several posters on other sites who are really PRO-KCP. I read some compelling arguements against drafting him but I can't find it now.

    I never really watched Kentavious play. From his scouting report, it looks like he may be a bit Rip Hamilton-esque. Prefers the catch-and-shoot off the screen or off the bounce... not great at posting up or finishing near the rim (not bad, just not really good at it), good handles, decent size. Hamilton became the best in the league at that style and won a championship. I don't know if that will happen for Kentavious, only time will tell.

    I'm a little concerned that Having Ken English and Ken Tavious at the shooting guard position might become confusing for the casual internet fan.

    He actually reminded me of a less explosive Ron Mercer, but with better range.

    I've seen him play three times. One performance was really good. The other two? Not so much. Decent tool set though.

    Right now, I'd rather go with CJ. I've only seen him play twice, but he was the best guy on the floor both times, and that was against Kentucky and Duke.

    Fool! Ken Tanvious is from Star Wars: the Sith Wars part IIVXIIMCIIV! No is going to mistake a red lightsaber wielding jedi for a player on the pistons. Hell, Chazzie V tries to use the force everytime he plays D and people STILL dunk all over him.

    I like Ken. He fits a need and the advanced stats guys are really high on him.

    The flip-flops are alarming. Did it say anything about him wearing his team's gear?

    I like KCP but I had Burke rated slightly higher than him, simply due to Burke's playmaking skills. I'm thinking Dumars is trying to rebuild the 04-05 Pistons cause KCP really reminded me of Rip Hamilton due to the way he shot off screens.

    Billups= B. Knight (combo guard)
    Hamilton= KCP (similar playing style)
    Prince= ?
    Rasheed= Monroe (Still developing his shot but he's a good back to the basket player)
    Big Ben= Drummond (Basically a bigger version of Ben Wallace)

    See what I mean? :P

    Let's get draft reviews, media (videos) and pics posted here please.

    Our newest Piston of our hearts. KCP, the hero we need, and hopefully the hero we deserve.
