I'd only have Cade clearly 1, to be honest I think I take LaMelo over everyone else

2021 has real nice depth but the top after Cade is kinda meh really

As somebody who has been able to watch the USA camps and talked with these players about who they really enjoy playing with,

The agreement is that Mobley's first bounce at the rim and his second bounce are nearly identical. This is largely due to the massive wingspan that this kid has. His outside shot looked strong at the camp and his handles are not showcased, but they are there.

Barnes was described as "a guy that just is bigger than other people and bullies smaller guards" . Wasn't a ton of outside shooting/creating for himself, just a kid that knows how to utilize his size vs smaller opponents. Now, when you're in the league, you usually are not the biggest guy on the floor at 19/20 years old so should be interesting.

A under the radar player that really stood out to me was 2021 Caleb Furst, a Purdue commit. The kid is not a 1&done , but following like Biggie Swanigan of Purdue, this kid will be an excellent pro in 2 years at Purdue. Is young for his age group, has great instinct, outside touch and knows where to be on the court. 6'10 and 230 and the kid TALKS on defense. A lot of people loved playing with him.

Green was considered "streaky" , but i only saw 1 game where his outside shot wasn't falling. His athleticism and his first move off of a jab step was a pleasure to watch. This kid will be an excellent pro. I would say more of an All-Star than a Franchise changer, but still, whoever gets this kid gets to watch showtime for years.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength- Philipians 4:13....

I don’t know about Boston, but I’d say Barnes for sure to get to 5, plus there’s always going to be at least one random breakout guy. Someone like Josh Christopher seems to be in that Tyrese Maxey mold where he seems underrated since he’s more of a combo guard than a shooting guard.

Christopher has some serious growing up to do
