You saying this cuz you read that biased DX scouting report. Be honest, you haven't watched him. His motor is high bro :lol:


College season isnt in motion yet. None of us have watched anything minus youtube and everyone looks like superstars on youtube i trust the breakdowns from the scouters more than i trust a put together fan highlight, And yes i read that on DX i also read draft.net both label him inconsistent and "settles"

"Huge potential if he can work through the mental and consistency issues"

True, you did post him first. But you got Troy Brown, Jr. slotted as being drafted before him. No way he goes before Knox. But we'll see...

I agree and so does sports Illustrated. Knox is being overrated right now. Unless he has a big season,alot of scouts have the dude outside of the lottery at this momment. He has potential, but there are few cats that are better picks than him. He is a good pick if we are lower in the draft.

What does Diallo do better than Knox?

* Knox is bigger.

* Knox has a better 3pt shot.

* They are both great in the open court.

* About even defensively

* Knox is actually a full year younger than Diallo

They'll be teammates so we will be able to see their effect on the game while at Kentucky simultaneously. But I am sure Knox will be drafted before Diallo and Troy Brown Jr. when all is said and done. Bookmark this post fellas.

bout to say something which might make yall shake yall heads but idc...................

if marvin bagley's reclassification goes through i will be willing to trade melo for absolute trash

this tank must go through if we want any shot at bagley

not only is bagley a fine prospect, he increases our chances at other prospects such as doncic, porter, ayton, etc.

He has all the physical tools in the world but he don't seem to love the game, has motor issues, etc.

I cannot stand bigmen without any dog in them. I would still take him but would prefer Doncic tbh

Apparently Jontay Porter reclassified to join his brother at Missouri. The more the merrier I say. Just hoping for Bagley to do the same.
