 Whats to like about Ayton? Well he's Seven feet with a massive 7'5" Wingspan, he's already 243 pounds. He's pretty jacked but what I like is that he's still shredded. Hope he gains weight slowly.

 Not super athletic, but runs very well, and he's quick off his feet which is huge. He's from the Bahamas, still pretty raw, relies on his gifts. Nice looking jumper, good paint protector. Lazy at times.

He's also never done any real weights in gym before because he didn't want to stunt his growth (his words), so some actual weight training will make him massive.

(UPDATE) I'm adding the red/blue scrimmage, which includes dunk contest....44" vertical video is here as well but is a seperate video.  Ayton has had ?? marks on his motivation offensively. I've been scouting him since his soph year and he does have issues being passive offensively ( not defensively) in big games....mostly not using his natural talents and shooting abilities to score. In this scrimmage he had 21 points and 9 rebs but showed his shooting touch. BTW he looks absolutely ripped. New Video:
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7tqOZ0TiQE

Never lifted weights before college and as a hs soph recorded 28.5" no step and 34.5" max vertical tested at UA camp. Biggest thing to remember is that he is freakishly long: 7'5.5" wingspan and 9'4.5'' standing reach....both of which could increase if he goes to the combine.

This is a video of him taking off from one foot and getting a 44'' max vertical. I know he's not taking a couple steps and going off 2 feet but it atleast shows he is a very strong 1 foot jumper and that can translate to better first step and speed. IMO I like 1 foot jumpers more.
Here is the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeBhoVeFhT4

Very impressive especially with his size.. Guy seems gigantic

So far in the preseason, the Lakers are 1-3. If you multiply that for 82 games, its 20.5 wins lol

And they haven't even played any of the good teams in the West. They are going to get pounded in the West.

Hopefully, they get pounded into submitting the second overall pick.

I hope dude. B. Lopez goes down even for part of the season then they are even more screwed than now.
Kuzma is playing nice but he's just a rook and they will have to figure out how to incorporate Randle/Nance and even Ingram.

Yeesh. He is certainly really big and can jump really high.

I've heard some concerns about his effort at times but he looks like he could be a legit center in the league. He's got a great combo of size and skill. If he shoots the three a little more consistently and plays hard on D, he's going to be very good.

TP to me favorite DOCTOR.
Agree almost 100%. Ya he def needs to be more aggressive offensively in games that matter....like in college this year. He does pretty consistently well defensively even at the Hoop Summit, but offensively is is the part of the game where he must impose his will more to have a balanced game.
Myles Turner does not shoot the 3 much but stretches the floor and he could end up being more like that. BTW I can't bring up Myles Turner anymore or I may faint again.
