Exactly. If he makes the NBA, his usefulness is just dribble the ball up the court and dribble handoff to much better players then go stand on the weak side out of the way of the good basketball players.

I don't think Paulus will make it mostly because his shot is too slow, and not terribly accurate to begin with. There won't be a lot of reason for teams to come up and play him, which will take away some of his penetration chances, taking away kick out opportunities, and therefore taking away a lot of assists. The problem with Nash and Stockton comparisons is that they are among the greatest shooters in the history of the game. Stockton consistently shot over 50% from the field, and Nash I think is at 53% or so this year now. It's their release that forced guys to get close to them, which allowed (or in Nash's case allows) them to take advantage of the creases.

Best case, I could see Paulus having a Steve Blake type role at the next level. I game manager that can make good decisions in the open floor, but he still has to get a little stronger.

Dominic James from Marquette reminds me of Jameer Nelson from the Magic. He bullies people in the lane, leading with his shoulders, draws a lot of contact, and is mostly shoot first. They've got similar frames too.

He's a bum. Guy got benched in a game this season becuse he was so bad. Stick to football. He wont stick in the NBA. He'll be lucky to even land on a roster. He wont even get drafted. Steve Woja (you finish the rest of his name) was twice as good as Greg the bum Paulus and Steve didnt stick in the NBA. Heck did he even make it? Probably not.

I've seen a lot of Duke and I can see where you're coming from. But, at the end of the day, Paulus is a liability. He gets too emotional in crunch time, which clouds his vision and he doesn't see the passes that he does early in the game. He plays without thinking too much. In my opinion, he'll be lucky to even be at Ridnour level. He's just not as good as he was advertised to be. Ok, maybe he's been injured this season, but McRoberts was leading Duke in APG for quite a bit, so I wouldn't even say he's close to being Stockton, Nash, or even TJ Ford.
