PICK #7: BEN MCLEMORE

Cohen’s Analysis: Many thought McLemore was the best overall talent in his draft class. He has Ray Allen-like qualities and is extremely athletic. Clearly, though, something must have been scarce in his repertoire if six teams decided to pass on him. McLemore’s rookie season has been generally substandard and his playing time has dropped over the past couple of weeks.

BOLD PREDICTION: I’m just starting to wonder if McLemore is one of those players that don’t live up to his potential because of complacency. He has all the tools and mechanics to be one of the league’s elite shooting guards but too often he appears satisfied being just satisfactory. I do think he will have nights where he erupts for 30-plus points throughout his career, but then there will be games where he doesn’t score more than 10 and you are left puzzled.
