I am going to blantantly steal a page from Blazer's Edge and transcribe the chat from Casey Holdahl's Blazer Blog on OregonLive. Last Friday, Casey Aaron Brooks at his Blazers workout then had a lengthy discussion with MVP about his NBA future. For those of you not familiar with how the OTHER Dave does this on Blazers Edge, the chat will be in blockquotes with grey backgrounds, while my thoughts will be normal text. I am paraphrasing the chat to the best of my ability. If you can, listen to the chat yourself by clicking here.
First, MVP talks about his workout with the Blazers and with other teams:
I think he can play in the league, too. More and more, the league is becoming more about quickness than about size. Look at a guy like Earl Boykins or, to the extreme, Allen Iverson. We know that MVP can shoot better than 95% of the players in the league, and he would also be among the quicker players in the league. I'm not saying he's going to be a star, but there is a spot in an NBA rotation for Aaron.
Next, MVP talks about where he'd like to play, and about graduating from UO:
I think that a change of pace guard is the role that Aaron will play in the league. A guy who is quick and can shoot that can force a quicker pace for a spurt. Thinking about it, Leandro Barbosa of Phoenix is a good comparison for what I believe Aaron can do in the league.
Brooks talking about the teams he's working out for and compares to TJ Ford and Tony Parker:
MVP will be drafted, and I think that a team like Phoenix or Golden State that plays at a quicker pace would be the best fit (although it'd be fun to see him in Portland, but I don't think that will happen. We'll find out June 28. Best of luck to Aaron wherever he goes.
