Marshon Brooks: Nets' Top Pick Says 'I'm Ready To Go'

New Jersey Nets' No. 1 pick Marshon Brooks was making the media rounds on Monday, and one of his stops was on Ruocco and Lundberg on ESPN Radio New York.

Brooks is a shooting guard who was the second-leading scorer in college basketball last season behind Jimmer Fredette, who was drafted by the Sacramento Kings. Asked to compare himself to someone in the NBA, Brooks chose former New York Knick and current Atlanta Hawk Jamal Crawford. Crawford has averaged 13.1 points per game over 11 NBA seasons, including seven seasons of scoring at least 15 points per game.

"I think I'm ready to play right away. ... I'm ready to go," Brooks said. "I have a chance to come in and play right away. I'm just very honored to be in this situation."

Brooks was born in Long Branch, N.J. before moving to Georgia as a child. He has friends and family in New Jersey, and is excited about being part of the Nets organization.

Of the looming NBA Lockout, Brooks said "I'm just a newbie. I don't know what to think."
