Who do you try to model your game after? Archie Goodwin: I really don't try to model my game after anyone. I prefer to be my own player so I just work on the things I feel make me successful. If I happen to pattern someone, it's not by choice. Maybe we have a similar body type or something but it's not like I'm trying my hardest to be someone. I'm not trying to be Michael Jordan. I'm not trying to be Kobe. I'm trying to be Archie Goodwin. Bright Side of the Sun

They were impressed with Goodwin’s athleticism, sure, but not particularly wowed by his shooting. He shot 26.6 percent from the 3-point line and, though he got to the free-throw line 6.4 times per game, made only 63.7 percent of his attempts. “I know what people were saying, but I thought that going into the draft was the best thing to do for me and my family,” Goodwin said. “I think it is a matter of, I need to work on my game and get better at my game, so I might as well do that in the NBA where I can focus on that all the time.” Sporting News

A veteran NBA scout told SNY.tv Wednesday morning he would draft Goodwin, “second round, 35-45.” “He’s very talented, very young, he can really run the floor, has long arms and is a good driver,” the scout told SNY.tv. “His jumper needs a lot of work and he has a long, hard road ahead of him. He will have to be mentally tough. He chose to play against men rather than boys. Stay tuned.” Goodwin will work out Tuesday for the Utah Jazz and also has Sacramento and Portland coming up.
