The knock on Ben McLemore, the smooth shooting guard from Kansas, is that he seems to lack a certain intensity. He's almost too smooth. Questions of his assertiveness are the major flag. And while McLemore probably has the purest shooting stroke and possibly the most complete offensive package of any draft prospect, he's not a lock to be taken in the top five as some felt he was a few weeks ago. With the rising stocks of Victor Oladipo and Trey Burke, McLemore might find himself as the third guard taken. McLemore worked out on Wednesday for the Suns -- drafting fifth -- and tried his best to put the questions of his drive and desire to bed. “Bring the ball up, control it, up-tempo, take control of the game,” McLemore told the Arizona Republic of what he can do better in the NBA. “I could've done those things at Kansas, but that's just how the Kansas system is. I was just playing Kansas basketball. Now, I have an opportunity to play free and play my own game.
