Instead of returning to play for the California Golden Bears, Allen Crabbe has decided to take his talents to the next level. Let’s break down his decision a little further on declaring for the 2013 NBA Draft.
First off, Crabbe averaged 18.4 points per game. He has always been a scoring threat in college basketball and he has the talent to do so at the next level. It is not like Crabbe is a junior going into his senior year and has a lot to prove. That could not be any further from the truth because Crabbe was great, although he was a junior this season.
He shot 45.9 percent from the field, 34.8 percent from behind the arc, grabbed 6.1 rebounds per game and dished out 2.6 assists per game. He is also 6’6”, so he should transition very nicely into the shooting guard position in the NBA.
Crabbe should get drafted in the first round of the NBA draft. Sticking around another year in college likely would have not changed anything. He is a great shooter, which will carry on to the NBA.
There is no saying on how much playing time he will get next season or how well he will perform on the court, but I think Crabbe could be one of the biggest steals in the draft.
He is one heck of a shooter and his range cannot be denied. Crabbe is also an excellent free throw shooter.
Crabbe declared for the NBA draft and I think he made the correct decision. He is good enough to make an impact in the pros right now.
