Ryan Blake, Senior Director of NBA Scouting Operations, calls in to chat about Syracuse players in the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft with host Wesley Cheng on the Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by SNY.tv. Editor in Chief Brad Bierman also checks in to talk about football and hoops recruiting.
Here are some highlights from the show:
The Juice Online: Tyler Ennis called himself the best point guard of the 2014 class in an interview last week. Do you agree?
Ryan Blake: That’s a confident comment and good for him. You want a point guard that’s confident, but in this draft, there’s a lot of good point guards. And in this draft, I call it the BPA, the best player available. And it’s also the old cliche that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. You and I and many of your friends could sit in a room and talk about who is the best player and none of us would be wrong. But what Ennis brings, he offers something rare. Consistency. Efficiency and steadiness. He’s a no mistake type of guy. He can score. He can pass. He can defend. He’s a crafty point guard that can see the floor well. And depending on what team, system, culture, I don’t know if he’ll be the first point guard drafted, but he’s definitely coveted.
