Chad Ford on Eddie and NBA

from his NBA Draft guideline stuff:

Speaking of underrated college seniors, don’t sleep on Charlotte forward Eddie Basden. ESPN’s Jay Bilas calls him the best defender in college hoops, and scouts don’t disagree. He’s an athletic, physical small forward who can guard four positions on the floor.
His offensive game also has grown. He’s really found a niche for himself penetrating to the basket, and his jump shot has improved every year. He’s also a terrific rebounder for someone his size.

Basden is another second-round sleeper who could come in and really help a team.

Pat Riley was there checking him out last night, he is Riley’s kind of player.

By the way Riley is a road warrior, that guy is everywhere.
