2013 NBA Draft Prospect Profile: Ramon Galloway, Shooting Guard, LaSalle

+Read full article

Frank Victores-USA Today Sports

Name: Ramon Galloway

Age: 22

Height: 6-foot-3

Position: Shooting Guard

School/Country: LaSalle

Latest Stats: 17.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.7 apg, 1.9 spg

 

The LaSalle Explorers made one of the more surprising runs of the NCAA Tournament this past year, advancing from the First Four round to the Sweet 16. The team’s back court catalyst throughout the entire 2012-13 season was 6-foot-3 combo guard Ramon Galloway. A four-year contributor, Galloway’s has continuously improved throughout his collegiate career, capping off his final season at LaSalle by averaging 17.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.

Galloway doesn’t have the greatest of NBA hype, but he is certainly a prospect that could get an opportunity to play overseas. He is labeled as a shooting guard, but Galloway can play the point as a score-first leader. Galloway isn’t expected to hear his name called on draft night however, despite a terrific senior campaign.

 

Strengths: Galloway can score, that much is obvious. He’s not afraid to launch from the perimeter either, averaging nearly seven three-point attempts per game. Galloway’s offensive game has continued to improve throughout his collegiate career and there is no doubt that he is just now reaching his peak on that end of the floor.

 

Weaknesses: Galloway’s size makes him a defensive liability. While he can score in bunches, his on-the-court positioning does not play out to his favor. Sure, he can score the ball and play the point, but his game is limited at that both positions, whether it’s having the ability to run an NBA offense or being a bit undersized for the two guard position at the professional level.

 

Draft Projection: Undrafted

James Harden Teaches Defense As Poorly As He Plays It

This is an unfortunate video. James Harden appears to be doing the right thing by making an appearance at a youth basketball event, yet the example he sets while defending some of the players is comical considering how poor of a defender he is off of the NBA hardwood.
