Remember, I was here FIRST. Before those hacks at DX started copying shit.

Also, the latest word in Greece is that he already had about 5 lotto teams say they will draft him with the first pick if they get it.

Oh yeah, and his brother Thanasis, he's basically the same as Iguodala, and he's said to be going in the first round also if he declares.

Celtics and Lakers managers already had private meetings and workouts with him in Athens. 8 more NBA managers are scheduled to do the same in the next month.

Here is Draftexpress' scout video on him:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km632hL-XCo

As you can see, he IS playing as a point guard.

This is like a post that shows you have no idea on what you talking about. Sun Yue can't handle traps and pressure. He was like a turnover waiting to happen when he has the ball. I watched his entire staccato NBA career even in garbage time and he is just not an NBA player. He was not misused, he clearly does not belong in the NBA.

Livingston pre injury was very explosive. I think injuries robbed him off a great career.

Hearsay does not mean much.

NBA teams should not get excited with Greek prospects

They usually fail in the NBA.

He's Nigerian, not Greek so you must hate that Euroleague. In other news he can't defend small point guards and is listed as a small forward with good ball handling skills. Average end of the bench guy likely.

I thought he might be a good fit there where Phil had used bigger players at the one and his skills should have worked on the wing in the triangle as well. He didn't really get much of a look though. He's definitely got some skills and is athletic too. He's a bit soft I'd say like Yi and Wang Zhi Zhi and other Chinese players(actually young Chinese men).
