McSpaz will dominate the NBA.

Wait, no he won't.

Dude, yes he will.

I guarantee this clown will not make it in the NBA. He should declare himself eligible for the WNBA, he has a better shot there with his style of play.
good luck

YEA RIGHT!! He could use about another 4 years of college ball before the NBA! He'll get beat down like a child. He was still getting beat down at Duke, in the weak ACC!

Have fun riding the bench... maybe the pacers will waste another draft pick

Even though he can't shoot and will not be strong enough to be sucessful at the next level he will get drafted because NBA execs like the Pacers are trying the NBA affirmative action plan. He'll get drafted to sell tickets to the fan base that like to see players who look like them even though they suck. The Pacers are trying it and they are getting worse daily. In fact, I bet the Pacers will draft him, just watch.

Why has Indiana lost some of its top HS players over the past few years?

IU/Purdue/Butler/ND would be nasty w/ McRoberts, Oden, Conley, etc.

I love this kid.

He's a great player... but a better human being. He carries himself with a ton of class and integrity.

I look for him to do great things at the next level awhile receiving lots support from my hometown, just as I did.

A career high of 22 points and he thinks he's going to be an NBA caliber player. Hope the Pacers don't pick him.

This guy is a cry baby. HE will be a bench warmer in the pros if someone is dumb enough to draft him. I ahve been reading some of the Duke fan blogs and they cannot stand him. First he dissed the Indiana All Stars because they would not make him Mr. Basketball and now he thinks he should be the show at Duke and Coach K. doesnt like the Laettner players any longer. He has some physical talent but he is a head case everytime a call doesnt go his way.

Josh, develop a consistant NBA 3 point shot. It's your only chance to make it past a couple of years. You don't have the rare abilities necessary to play inside with NBA players. Good luck

Who cares about McRoberts. He has no love from the basketball fans in this state for what he did coming out of highschool. Spoiled kid who was upset that he didnt win Mr. Basketball...He wasnt even the best player in the state anyway..Oden and Gordon were better than McRoberts while he played at Carmel. Typical Carmel kid I guess...

Probably a bad idea, hope he hasn't hired an agent. This kid doesn't need money, why not stay in college and play real basketball?
