He seems like the new aged 4 which there are two versions of, you are either a stretch 4 in todays league, or you are insanely athletic but smaller than what the typical NBA PF used to be

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

This guy's going to get compared to MKG a thousand times this year. He even kind of looks like MKG. He'll be in the mix for top 5

Also this guy looks like the player everyone writes in for the perfect fit for the Cavs pick in the top 5 for months, then on draft night they'll take Tony Mitchell (projected 10+ and considered not in the mix for top 5 by then because of his school) and everyone will be like omg

3 straight games of 20 points.. We see if he continues to be aggressive.
