He's really good at puberty.

If we draft him, the team should be renamed Jalen Rangers with Brown and Green leading the pack. We just need to sign Jalen White, Jaylen Black and Jaylen Red.

Well he's certainly very athletic.

I've watched a bit of him and he looks legit, not just another dunk star. There are multiple games where he shows his versatility, has great handle for someone so long and can drive at ease for someone so thin, another game he dropped 30 with 21 coming from 3 pointers.

First time I'm ever seeing him but I agree. He moves with a rare fluidity and jumps with an explosiveness that is reminiscent of a young Kobe. You can gripe all you want about the level of competition but let's not forget what Antetokoumpo did to those poor Greek children right before doing the same thing to NBA athletes a year later.

It'll be interesting to see how far this kid will go but he's building off some serious tools.

His athleticism is already off the charts.  Hopefully for his development he is able to add muscle so he's not easily pushed around.  Also, he needs to work on his jumper and defensive effort.  Can't try to be Lebron on D and only go for the highlight reel blocks to get the "ooh's" and "ah's" from the crowd.

Um sure but athleticism is about 50% of what made Jordan Jordan. You have to have ELITE competitiveness to reach his heights. Great athletes are all over the NBA right now.

He does look very smooth. At just 15 years old, I wonder how big he'll end up.
