"I just don't want the day to come where I pick up that paper and it says he shot someone, or that he was shot. Every day that goes by that I don't see that, I feel good." - Moe Smedley, Zach Randolph's high school coach

Gary McGhee, disgusted with himself.

Starting centre Gary McGhee plays impeccable defense. He is big and strong, has good timing, rotates correctly and quickly, is a great shotblocking force, and even does well when caught up on switches, Kemba Walker gamewinners notwithstanding. McGhee rebounds well and is a lynchpin of the Pittsburgh team on one end of the floor. He offers far less offensively, save for putbacks, tips, and very easy looks created out of opportunity and strength. He doesn't have good hands, good touch, post moves, a jumper, or an adequate free throw stroke. His only offensive skill is his offensive rebounding; he does it all on defense. But despite being a one-way player, McGhee is a huge component of one of the nation's very best teams. He may even have next level potential. The league needs another Brian Skinner.

   Sham's unnecessarily great big draft board: Centres

Gary McGhee - McGhee's interior defense is technically precise, and his offense emphatically lacking. His offensive skills are limited to the offensive rebound and occasional finish - other than that, McGhee does not touch the ball on that end. What he does do is defend the interior, and he does a solid job on the perimeter for one so big (and with such little athleticism). Despite lacking an ideal inch or two in height, McGhee is strong, physical and unafraid, and is a deterrent and disturbing presence on the interior.

The Chris Richard corollary applies here, too.
