EvenMoney’s NBA Draft 2011 – Top 5 Shooting Guards, #4

 #4 – Alec Burks

Alec Burks got everybody on that Aaliyah 'age ain't nothing but a number' so we can be together kick. At 19 years old, Burks has done two seasons in college and many have him as a lottery pick. Don’t get me wrong – we like Burks, enough to rank him as our #4 SG and we strongly considered him for the third spot.

We like his all-around offensive game - minus the three-point shooting-, play-making abilities and rebounding. He’s also a decent defender but it is one of his weaker points. When it comes to Shooting Guards, we feel the ability to defend the position is what makes or breaks a player. In Alec’s case, it is a matter of intensity and conviction.

Alec’s ability to get to the Free Throw line and offensive repertoire makes him a viable candidate for a young team looking to groom a player. Still not convinced? Ponder the stats below and press play!

Alec Burks


Out of 138 players:
·         Alec would be a first round pick in 2 of the 4 metrics – with defense being his downfall. He got injured (shoulder) during a draft workout with the Milwaukee Bucks.
·         Do you feel like gambling? Yes; then use any pick from 7 to 14. No; then wait until late first or early second round.
·         Considered as a whole (BPM), as well as for each specialty (PCM for Production; DIR for Defense; and TPA (Talent/Skill-set).
