Default Sebastian Telfair video. Waste of talent or overrated talent to begin with?

Aside from Lebron he was probably the most hyped HS player in 20 years or so. KG had some but Telfair had that New York pointguard hype added to his. Just decided to make this since it had been a long time since I heard anything about him. Pretty basic. Just basketball and music.

I'll add a download one later.

Blazers almost had Telfair, Miles , and Oden. Based on the hype around them predraft that team would be winning 75 games a year. If only hype could make a jumper...


Can watch him now if you care to. Playing for minny.

NBA leaguepass link...

http://broadband.nba.com/cc/playa.ph...01.asx&gid=112

Has 8 assists in the 3rd.

Think hes destined for a career as a borderline starter or will he blow up and be something close to what he was supposed to be? What is he now 21? 22? Kenny Anderson wasnt doing much at that age either. Too early to write him off....but its not looking good.

Id like to see him make it to the Brooklyn Nets in a couple years though.

Would you trade a late first rounder for him right now?

Overrated based on NBA potential, but he was good in high school and would have been good in college.

overhyped just cuz he was related to marbury. early fame didnt help either, who gets their own reality show before they even get drafted?

I wouldn't trade a late 2nd round pick for him. Aside for a handful of decent games, he hasn't even looked like a backup. He has no discernable skills. Unless he turns things around quickly, he has about 3 years left before he's playing in Europe.

Hes one of the quickest players in the league, and he's been playing decent for the Wolves. There's still hope...

he has potential to do a lot more if he can develop a consistent jumper. he does have the moves to get by people, but they're not working in the nba because they all back off and don't even try to guard him tightly but just dare him to toss up near uncontested bricks.

He should have went to college. By watching those clips, there was a lot of sloppy play as a point guard in there. College would have organized his skills.

i think hes terrible. I dont know how he was hyped so much. i see very little game in him. His jumper isnt anything good. He has no real penetration moves, its more like he runs in and shoots running jumpers. Never see up and unders, nice crossovers, or anything even at the NBA level in his game. Minnesota would've been better off picking up someone like Udroh or basically [b]any[b] PG out there other than Telfair. Telfair shouldnt even be on any NBA rosters imo. Hes as plain a bball player i've ever seen at the NBA level.

Hes quick
Decent vision
decent passer
terrible finisher
good hands

I think hes still got hope. He's done about a 7 out of 10 so far for us. If hes able to finish his layups, hed be about a 8 or a 8.5

Too early to write him off. This is the first time in his career where he's been able to play without worrying about getting the early hook.

The decision-making will determine whether he has long-term value. If he can develop it this year and next, he's actually pretty good.

He's too small, can't hit a jumper, blows way too many layups,can't defend a lick and can't organise a team properly. He's a poor mans sergio rodriguez.
