Anybody been following this guy?

Freshman at KU, will play 1 year and then go pro. Word is he is already considered a lock for the #1 draft slot.

He's got to be praying the Lakers suck this year and get lucky with a ping pong ball instead of having to spend 4 years with somebody like the bobcats.

Let him go to the bobcats for 4 years. That'll teach him to go 1 and done. Could've spent those years in college party & b.s.


Though I'm being a hypocrit since my current fav D rose was 1 and done

Yeah, I've heard some incredible hype about the kid.

The big problem with the 1 and dones is that they haven't reached their potential by the time their rookie contract ends so you are spending time developing them and then they can walk away. However, the era of the 22+ year old rookie with enormous talent is long gone and can only happen now if someone is a late bloomer or has other reasons to delay turning pro. (Robinson and Duncan for example).

Sadly, if he stays in for 4 years he's just delaying his stint with a team like the bobcats.

Watch him wind up in Cleveland....the Mack Brown of NBA franchises.

I wonder if he's showing he's all that and then some if some teams angle a little bit for a little better lottery chance.

Probably not, it's not worth it IMO to tank to get a 1-3% better chance....which is why I love the lottery system instead of worst record picks first.

Will reserve judgment until I've seen him against collegiate competition. Obviously he's a man against boys at the high school level....

I'd suspect a lot of the buzz and talk of him being #1 in the NBA draft before playing a game in highschool is driven by him having possibly played against college and pro players at some time or another?

That's when Lebrons reputation really exploded.

There are all kinds of gyms etc. where a guy like him can rub elbows with better competition during summer months.
