The "Daily News Live" crew talks about the surprising performance of Maalik Wayns at Sixers training camp. 10/09/12
I think like I've written this and I keep saying it at least swings from. Villanova at -- he looks so good good for him so good -- Collins. He's been what actually is that sees you give him in the open court that's what -- want to do and what college is done is he's -- accidentally. Wings up with Jrue Holiday and and he's playing defense on -- court to make Jrue Holiday better. Collins said today dusty set out outside I I really wanna see the two of them on the court together so -- handling the ball holiday running you know with and -- All those people artistry why was we'd go into the pros may be the replica reason why it happened that we're absolutely because as a surprise bases. He was a contributor big time obviously a starter for Jay Wright is this true we. Should we be so surprised at what we're seeing training camp where he where he got hurt Mike knows this better than anybody covering Villanova. What's that he was asked to do stuff last year that that is in his game he's a true point guard he's a facilitator. Who can also scored less ridiculous fans who is injured -- yet and he was asked to score exist to be the player on the team. He is a great complementary player I thought I'm not kidding I looked this kid I could see him being a starting outlets and in the end -- This will sound wrong and that you want to view it sure. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He will be there one year. May -- -- every stage for three team felt partly if -- wasn't good but I think mostly wouldn't be used to tell you he had as much talent and the talent always wasn't. You know can always surfers who -- more of what. He's got talent so yeah good for him I don't think -- get drafted what I thought yeah it's always hit legacy got that a reward he belongs like. Or Bob what what players currently in the NBA would you compare him to the style of game his physique he's 61. 195. Which I guess is he thought he he is stuff that you could I gotta tell you -- in that video he looks and made -- little small -- the last few slight of build and snaps for young yet. I'll tell it's funny because Jrue Holiday out but this was on believe. He he he said quickness of of what Russell Westbrook that's John Wall there he he threw all of that extremely fast and Brandon Jennings after he said he has that much quickness. The way he's under control is similar to a Jameer Nelson to me. Where it's speed speed speed stop on -- -- speed again. Where the defenders are just he is never out of control when he takes jump shots they're wide open eighteen footer because he's done something to get himself wide open. You know that welcomed Texans got an all NBA player -- it is to me been the most surprising god by Bard Sixers can't.
