We bring Saric in, n this guy defensively. Holy moses, let the layup line begin. They better be 50% from deep to break even.

The shooters do stretch the floor for Ayton. Get the offense working and then get the D in place.

If Monty can build an offensive system predicated on lot of off-ball movement like Golden State, it could really hep maximize Cam's shooting abilities.

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

So Cam is probably closer to Rip Hamilton than a Klay Thompson (whose name has been brought up multiple times)?

I'll be pretty happy if he ends up anything like either guy.

If he became 70% of Rip, I'd be happy. I'm not particularly high on him

How many Tar Heels games did you watch? I watched the highlights of his two games against Duke yesterday. Of course highlights always look good, but he was playing one of the top teams in the country and had big games both times.

I don't think I have access to full games so I've only watched highlights. But like you said if they aren't highlights, they aren't in the highlight video so of course he looks good.

That said, if I played against duke my highlight video would have nothing in it.

So having a good highlight video isn’t nothing lol

If you're a scrub you probably wouldn't. I'm not saying Cam is a scrub at all and clearly he has a solid set of highlight videos so there's that.

I think Korver is a good comp of a good outcome for Cam. I do think hell shoot well, that stoke is pure and will translate out to the NBA 3 line. Like Korver he should be good at moving without the ball and generally being smart on both sides of the ball and have a long useful career. (If he stays healthy)
