Hoopsworld ranks Terrence Jones as the second best small forward prospect

Hoops World has been taking a look at the top prospects for the 2011 NBA draft, and they ventured into the realm of small forwards with their latest installment. Not surprisingly, Terrence Jones ranks near the top of their list. Surprisingly, considering the way he’s played thus far, he’s not all the way at the top. That distinction went to Harrison Barnes, based apparently on the laziness of not wanting to change the number next to his name from the preseason rankings.  Here’s their take on Jones:

2. Terrence Jones, Kentucky — It didn’t take long for freshman Terrence Jones to establish himself as the go-to guy on a Kentucky team that has simply re-loaded after seeing five players drafted in the first round of the 2010 NBA Draft.  The 6-8 Jones already has an NBA body and displays a nice set of perimeter skills for young combo forward.  The left-hander can get to the hoop and finish with either hand, and his aggressive offensive style has gotten him to the charity stripe a surprising eight times per contest.  Jones shows solid range on his jumper and is a capable passer, showcasing a diverse offensive skill-set to go along with his feel for scoring the basketball (he is Kentucky’s leading scorer at 18.2 points per game).  The former Jefferson (Portland, OR) High School star is also a versatile defender.  Jones has the lateral quickness and foot speed to guard some of the top college small forwards and has the strength to defend bigger players in the post as well while ranking first on the team in rebounds, blocked shots and steals.  There is no doubt that Jones is a lottery talent and could play his way into the top ten picks in the 2011 NBA Draft.

So there you have it. Terrence Jones is good, and it’s pretty likely that he’ll play in the NBA. Other people seem to think so, too. But enough about that. Instead of more hoop talk, how about we just revisit one of the greatest scenes in Christmas movie history. The language might be a little bit saucy, but one thing for sure is that the sh*tter is full:


And with that, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good and safe night and holiday weekend.
