For those interested, this guy will be a serious consideration for the Brooklyn pick if it's top 5.
First game for NC State. Competition is trash but good first look at him. Looks very tasty indeed.

He looks good. It gets said about a lot of players, but he literally looks like he's bouncing off a trampoline.
I could very well see the Hawks... starting Taurean Prince at the 3, who is already better than Crowder, imo.

you vs. the guy she tells you not to worry about

Chances are he could end up the #1 draft pick and Pelicans are on their way to the lottery. They look worse than the Nets, despite the emergence of Anthony Davis. New Orleans are in dire need of a point guard.

Let's pray those Brook Lopez trade rumors are true.

Agree that Fultz is better, but this draft and thereby the Nets Pick will be perceived as a lot better if there are 2 guys making a  legitimate play for the top spot. Smith Jr preserves the value of the pick it it ends up at #2 whether it's us taking him or another team in need of a young stud PG.

He's the best athlete in the draft, hands down (and there are a few "elite" level athletes so that's saying a lot). The Stevie Francis comps are very fair. This kid may be even more explosive than Francis. He's only a freshman but man can he "explode".

I'm not totally sure about that...Bam and Josh Jackson are crazy athletes too.

I agree and I did mention that there are a few other "elite" level athletes but I believe DSjr is on mount Rushmore. You can even put Malik Monk on that elite list. He's also crazy athletic.
You'll just have to watch this kid as he'll get a lot of playing time and he will do some amazing things. I just hope he doesn't get hurt as he's very aggressive and this isn't HS anymore.
