The really interesting thing about Colby is that he's a creative finisher in the paint. The only downside to his game is his outside shooting and the fact he isn't exactly the world's greatest athlete out there. The intangibles are all there though and those sorts of guys tend to wind up being winners in the NBA. Precisely Monte's type.
Well, I wasn’t going to be surprised if Colby Jones was picked at 24 so I guess that lessens the blow. He’s a very solid player. He’s one of those upperclassmen I wanted that can conceivably contribute right away.
When the "experts" said that the draft really leveled out around picks 20-40 they really meant it. There's not much of a gap between a guy like Colby and someone like Hood-Schifino who went like twenty picks before him. Also since we got him in the second round, Colby's contract is going to be ridiculously cheap for a couple of seasons.
