Opinions on the importance of measurements vary greatly, as they are just one piece to the puzzle that determines whether a player will end up being successful. Measurements are still widely anticipated both by NBA draft fans and talent evaluators because they present a completely objective way of comparing prospects.
After a week of practicing, the World Select team wasn?t able to gain an edge over Team U.S.A. and ended up losing by a 20 point margin. It has been interesting to examine the progress of each of the prospects and their abilities on the court during the week they spent in Memphis. The world team was much stronger this year than in the past, though this was not reflected in the final outcome of the game. Some final conclusions can be drawn from the week on each of the international prospects who participated in the 2007 Nike Hoop Summit. These observations were made from watching the entire week of practices, scrimmages and the game, live in person.
