Ehhh jay burson was a scorer that happened to play point like Scott Skiles was in college. Jay burson woulda been a beast in the NBA if not for neck injury...I'm guessing you meant cause they were both small skinny guys.
Skiles had a better college career than Burson but I agree Burson had the quickness to play in the NBA, and he was a deadly shooter. The media would have loved him too, cause he was the scrappy white guy. He was one of my favorite players growing up. I think he woulda had a Mark Price like career...but I hate comparing him to Price cause he was way quicker than him.
Why is anyone talking about Tyler Lewis? He'd be terrible in our system. We don't need a pass first / shooting-and-defense-questionable PG when the offense is going to run through Otto at the top of the key. He's clearly a superlative passer, but the Georgetown offense is more geared around players that are strong generalists and can succeed in every facet of the offensive game - shooting, passing, cutting, finishing - rather than a guy who is clearly excellent at one facet and questionable at a lot of the others.
D'Vauntes, at least what I've seen on YouTube, would be perfect. He can shoot 3's, he can penetrate, he can shoot a legitimate midrange shot (which I'm very excited by), and he can find an open big man or cutter. With Otto at the key, I don't know how a defense is going to stay glued to a guy in the post if D'Vauntes gets the ball on the wing, penetrates a couple of steps and pulls up - Otto or one of the bigs will be open.

Having seen DSR play AAU ball, I agree with everything TC and idhoya just said. Plus, he's a team leader and a good defender. And he makes free throws when it counts!! In short, I think he's the whole package!
