    That’s what an All-American PG is supposed to look like. Great PG’s have certain inherrent qualities and Derrick Walton is a perfect example of that. Great decision making, above average quickness and an excellent left hand. Walton is a better PG prospect than Trey Burke at the same stage except his outside shot isn’t as consistent as Burke’s.

      Hes good but Trey good? Not yet.

        I think he’s saying as a HS Junior. He kind of reminds me of Mateen Cleaves.

        • ghoward44

          Go look at Burkes highlights as a junior

            This time last year I was one of like two Michigan fans on the planet not worried about Trey as the starter. All anyone else could do was compare it to DMO’s freshmen year as if the two situations were remotely similar. Now Trey is on some unattainable level.

      • Josh

        Definitely not as good as Trey yet, but if he continues to improve his shooting, Walton has the potential to be better than Burke.

    Is that the LA Lakers announcer doing this game? His voice sounds really familiar.

    • A2JD

      Yes, it is. I don’t remember his name but that’s the guy. No Stu Lantz, though.
