Does Demarcus Nelson Have A Shot At The NBA?

Promoted from the Fanposts - Mostly because I love when other people contribute, partly because he does, in fact, have Ridiculous Upside. - Scott

Okay this is another average thread by a guy who likes a player and wants other people to like a player and hopes his single post will sway them.

D-marc is a 6'1" Combo guard, playing for the Austin Toros, with a decent handle and an ugly as sin jumpshot.  But he can score.  He's California's All-time High School Scorer.  Undersized for the NBA say you?

Well the one thing he does have going for him is sick atheleticism and a freakish frame.  He is 6'1" and has a 6'10" wingspan.  He also has a strong upperbody and the de facto 40 inch vertical.  In keeping with this site, that's ridiculous upside. 

I'm not going to pretend that I don't have a mancrush on him, he went to Duke, and I am a Duke fan.  If he and I were to have a conversation it would go like this:

Me: Alright.  If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen.  And I'm not letting you get rid of me.  How about that?

Demarcus: (nodding slowly, eyes wide)

Me: This used to be my specialty. I was good in a living room.  Send me in there, I'll do it alone. And now I just... I don't know...I WANT TO GET YOU AN NBA CONTRACT!

Demarcus: Aw shut up.  Just Shut up.  You had me an NBA contract, you had me an NBA contract..... (his eyes water...)

Okay, that's a little much.  But seriously, let me know what you guys think of his chances to get back to the league.  I think he has a realistic shot if he hones his J and his defense.  But maybe I'm just being a Duke homer.
