Monday Morning Quarterback: Will Isaiah Roby or James Palmer Jr. perform better in the NBA?
With the NBA offseason in full swing, a couple former Huskers, Isaiah Roby and James Palmer Jr., are making names for themselves. During the Summer League, these two put on some impressive performances. Both players clearly have potential.
Roby was a star at Nebraska, averaging 11.8 points per game; he was also the first Husker to be picked in the draft in 20 years. In a Las Vegas Summer League game, Roby scored 11 points and helped the Mavericks topple Croatia.
Palmer made his own waves as a member of the Phoenix Suns. Playing for Nebraska, Palmer scored an average of 19.7 points a game. Palmer demonstrated his ability to score a lot in the big league this summer when he put up 23 points against the Knicks in Las Vegas. Seeing such potential, the Clippers signed him recently.
Roby and Palmer could be excellent players in a year or two, given their demonstrated ability to perform well at the college and professional level. Which player do you think will have a more successful career?
