Love Josh Perkins but he just does not have the athleticism to play PG in the league I'm afraid....of course Mickey McConell (sp?...76'ers) and Dellavedeva (sp?) aren't exactly uber athletes and they've found a niche so what do I know.

Best of luck Josh Perkins..have some fun and ball out!

He can pass and he can shoot, so he's got a chance. Either way, if he wants to play professionally, he'll make plenty of money, whether here or abroad.

I expect Josh to be such a passionate lifelong ambassador for the program. I wouldn't be surprised to see him live in Spokane and be involved in the university, hoopfest, or local basketball at some point.

If/When GU wins a title, I expect JP will be crying well deserved tears of joy. If/When next year's PG woes cost us some games, I expect fans will be crying tears of sorrow.

According to some on this very board, the son had no right sniffing an NBA court. Yet he did. Didn't stick around, but he did play in legit NBA games.

John did. By a far margin. David may not have had his dads gifts, he could dunk quite convincingly and was adequately speedy . Big thing with David was that he knew how to play the game. Just too small.

I think that David earned his opportunity to play in the NBA. His numbers in the development leagues were very good and he plays a position (PG) that is lacking true guys at most levels.

John was an elite athlete. He was always one of quickest PG in the league.


John has tremendous quickness, a quality without which he simply would not have made it as a pro, as well as superb natural endurance—he once ran an eight-mile race in about 42 minutes without training. His peripheral vision and his hands—"Cousy-sized hands," says Hundley—are ideal for a point guard.

As a kid, I went to a few of the Stockton camps. John Stockton would make an appearance for at least a day of camp.

The speed at which he could perform ball-handling skills were stunning. The figure 8 drill and the one where you lay on your back and pass the ball between your legs as you alternate kick were absolute lighting.

If he hadn't made it in the NBA, we would of been a rich man as a magician (with a basketball).

The idea that Stockton isn't a superb athlete is nonsense. He's the closest thing Basketball had to Lionel Messi, at least up through the year 2000 or so.

Stockton's basketball IQ was off the charts....he passed the ball to Malone for about 16 years and made about 40 million bucks and got into the HOF......:)

I went to school with his dad and he was plenty smart too...

David was merely in the right place at the right time. There are a 100 better PGs out there that have not touched an NBA floor. David has been cut from every middling professional (non G league) team he has played for. First the NZ Breakers, then Zagreb, and once again this year by Medi Bayreuth of the German BBL. People around here can’t admit it but he just isn’t very good. bUt wAiT! hE mAdE tHe nBa!
Well there are about 400+ guys out there in Europe and Asia that are better than the dregs of the NBA on 10 day emergency contracts. Stockton couldn’t hold Pangos’ or NWG’s jock.

I have to say, your post is ill informed at best.

David Stockton isn't very good? That is literally a ridiculous thing to write.

If you were to write he isn't as good as his Dad; or he isn't good enough to make a permanent NBA roster, etcetera... The dude has made his living playing basketball for a good long stretch now. People who actually make a living as a professional athlete, by definition, are pretty damn good.

You should know that in any given year, the odds of getting struck by lightning are quite a bit higher than the odds of getting a 10 day contract for an NBA team.

webspinnre

I think the general point is that the reason he got that contract is because he was available and currently in the G League. As the saying goes, "sometimes the best ability is availability".

04-17-2019, 11:37 AM
While Pangos and NWG are much better guards, Stockton is a much quicker guard than either of them. His steal percentage, from his worst season, is as good or better than Pangos or NWG best seasons. And his best season doubles or triples up one of Pangos' seasons. He has one thing they don't have, which is NBA level quickness. If I'm taking one of them on an emergency NBA 10-day contract, I'd probably pick Stockton anyway, even if they were all available. At least he can match quickness. Second choice is NWG who has league size. And then there is Pangos who neither has the size or quickness.

If I'm building a team in Europe and need an every day starter, I'm taking NWG or Pangos. Both who are excellent as long as their matchup isn't an NBA freak athlete/size.

By the end of next season, we will realize just how good Perkins is/was, and how much he will be missed.

Special player, incredible feel.

If he was a bit more athletic, he'd be in the League. His feel and passing skills are certainly good enough.

No.


PIT players rarely get invited. Not sure if ther have been any the last few years. It is an audition mostly for foreign scouts and the G nowadays. A few guys will still get camp invites and even a UFA or two way contract, but not many.

69 guys were invited to the combine last year. Perkins ain’t Top 70 on big boards is he?

Clarke, Rui will get invited...probably Tillie.

True that most PIT players dont get combine invites, but Two Colorado U players have recently got combine invites based on their PIT performance. Derrick White 2017 and George King 2018. Both are now in NBA. All 30 NBA teams had management reps at the PIT and Josh had 15+ interviews with those reps while he was there.

Starting this year the G league Elite camp has basically combined with the combine (E camp starts couple days before combine is same location in Chicago) and they invite another 40 players to that camp so you are looking at over 100 players in Chicago for that week to play and be evaluated by pro scouts. Josh agent is pretty confident, based on how he did at PIT, that he will get one of those 100 slots. I think Norvell gets an invite as well so you might see 5 Zags in Chicago that week
