Finding the next Paul Pierce in 2012 NBA Draft

Promoted FanPost

At 6'7" 217 lbs with a nice inside and outside game and the ability to take defenders off the dribble, I think the C's should take a shot at Kris Joseph from Syracuse. He is projected to go in the 20-25 range in this years draft.

Now maybe I am biased because I am a big Syracuse fan, but I have seen enough Orange games to know that Joseph also posesses the work ethic and intangibles to be a star in the NBA. The biggest intangibles I see from him is the ability to pick up the scoring load when the offense is struggling by creating his own shot. This includes an under control dribble drive that reminds me of the captain. If you watch him play, I think you will see a late 90's version of Paul Pierce in terms of size and athleticism. I'd be interested to see what others think.
