I dont understand people who are skeptical about Andy in the NBA. Its one thing to say "I just dont think he has the talent to play against the best in the world"...and its another to say "he cant play defense cause he went to syracuse and since hes mostly a 3 point shooter he may not be quick enough to get his shot off against the speed in the league".
Did any of these people who criticize Andy watch him this year? Yes, 'Cuse plays a 2-3 zone but I am pretty sure Andy was up there in steals and was a major force on defense all year (this is against the best of the best of big east talent). Andy's unbelievably fast catch-and-release will be a very good quality to have in the NBA and I honestly think Andy will be a great addition off the bench in year one and develop into a bigger role player as his career progresses.
I think this kid will surprise everyone, as he has already left an amazing impression on GM's around the league. This kid is a homegrown Syracuse guy who bleeds Orange in his family and I think him having a decent NBA career will mean a lot to the town of Syracuse and Orange fans.
I LOVE Wes Johnson, dont get me wrong. I think whatever team drafts him will be lucky to have a high character guy who will play hard and get along with all his teammates....but let's not forget Syracuse's own ANDDDYYYY RAUTINSSSS #1 who all Orange fans watched for 5 years develop into a great player infront of our own eyes.
