How can you not see the similarities? :lol:

Just asking. Haven’t followed Zach Lavine before. But was Lavine always this good with his scoring?

Im just wondering if Lavine, Zhaire and Springer are all in the same archetype. They’re more of springy jumpers and just like to shoot over people with their good shooting mechanics type scorers


Yeah, I still think almost dieing really messed with Smith’s ceiling.

It played a large role

Y'all check this thread out. This kid isn't Kyrie Irving, but he can put the ball on the floor.

Drafting an Avery Bradley type over a stud top ten potential PG in Cooper is why scouts still don’t get it.

I know my stance with Cooper at not liking him but no one can deny his talent is obviously superior. It was def a wait and see against better comp. But this already par for the course

Happily admit I was wrong on Cooper. He was small in College like proper small but from the eye he looks to have grown abit. Height aside he has a stocky frame.

... dare I say it F it he has shades of CP3 sprinkled throughout his game.

Anyone that can tempo and floor general a game like that is an upper tier of class. Yes it’s SL but the skill to do that is undeniable.

I still don’t like him but like Trae early on it might change in the coming years lol.

I don't believe Kidd had a 23.7% assist percentage when he was 18. The truth is that no one knows what this kid will end up being. Just sit back and relax and wait like the rest of us.

I'm going to guess the guy averaging 7 assists per game in his freshman year at Cal had an assist percentage over 23%.

7.7 assists in 31 mpg. There's probably like in the 45-50% range. Maybe even higher.

Didn't catch yesterday's game, but nice to see the kid went for 21 on 8-14 (5-6 from the stripe).

Question: Anyone happens to know Springer's 3 point percentage during his junior and senior years at IMG? I've searched everywhere and I can't find it.

Thanks!
