Marcus Smart, last year, was a freshman point guard projected in the top three of last year’s draft.  This year, he may drop down to the Lakers pick. The talent of the draft crop has pushed him down, but he can still hang with the top prospects.

His sophomore year had its’ ups and downs.  While he improved statistically in regards to shooting and assist to turnover ratio, there was controversy at the end of the season, when he shoved a Texas Tech fan in the stands. He accepted the consequences and moved forward. Still, the Co-Captain of the Team USA U-19 team is sought out as a person of great character, competitiveness, and leadership.
