With the 28th pick of the sixth round, the Nets proudly select...
6.28 Acie Law (PG)
Height: 6-3 / 1,91
Weight: 195 lbs. / 88,4 kg.
College: Texas A&M '07
Acie Law will immediately move into the starting point guard role for the "you can't even scalp a ticket to see the" LeBron-led Nets, moving Jamal Crawford into his more natural and potent sixth man ("of the year") role. Acie is a bright, young point guard with good smarts... Makes good decisions... Can score with both hands... Good ballhandler... He helped Billy Gillispie completely turn around the Aggies program. Nicknamed "Captain Clutch" for his ability to take over the game late, Acie is a scoring point guard with an excellent basketball IQ, who has improved in just about every facet of his game.
He has great size and strength for the position, a good floor general that puts his teammates in a position to score and keeps turnovers to a minimum. His biggest asset is that he's fearless and not afraid to take clutch shots at the end of the game. A good slasher to the basket, with an excellent mid range jump shot and has improved from three point range this year. Defensively shows good lateral quickness and reflexes to play in the passing lanes. While Acie needs to improve his decision making, dictating tempo and learning the nuances of the PG position, he will have Jamal and LeBron to prod him along and encourage him and bring out the best of this high upside PG.
Due to his contributions to Texas A&M, the Texas A&M athletic department recently decided to hang Law's No. 1 jersey on the rafters in Reed Arena. He became the first Aggie in any sport to have the honor and Nets' hopefuls predict he may do the same for the Nets franchise dishing to a power squad of LeBron, Vince, Jamal, Zach and Bogut....
