I think it'll translate, but I don't think he's going to be a generational talent like he's being hyped as. His playmaking and length alone make him bust proof.


If he's just a good player at #2 that's a slight bust.


I think he'll be a very good player and is bust proof. I think Fultz/JJ has more potential though. I don't think Ball ever averages 20 a night.

I don't think he wants to score 20+ points a game. I think he could be aggressive if he wants to, but he would rather have more assists than points, and i'm not talking Jose Calderon who refuses to shoot.

I know that's not his game. I think Fultz has more potential because of his diverse skill set, and JJ's elite 2 way play. I'd still draft Ball #1 if I was the Knicks because of fit with KP.

I may viewing his style wrong, but i think it's similar to what Lebron does at the beginning of games:

I'm going to let you'll get yours, then i'm going to take over if i need to.

dont worry the knicks won't move up into the top 3 and by the time they pick at 7, theyll be stuck with the likes of the unknown french kid, malik sweet lou monk, and poor man's tobias harris.

Ball is nerdy, would blend right in with the band members.

All seriousness, NBA offensive players are going to overpower him in a big way. Kuzminskas might be able to.

How much weight is he putting on that slouchy frame though? He looks like a guy in the YMCA gym.
