Better Prospect? — Immanuel Quickley vs. Ty-Shon Alexander? 

Post#1 » by getrichordie » Wed Jul 8, 2020 4:15 am

This will be my first of a new series of threads called "Better Prospect?" which will be an attempt to compare similar-level NBA prospects against one another and foster some discussion. I'll also be conducting a poll that will run for 2 weeks, so everyone will have ample time to participate if they'd like.

First up, we have...

I like Alexander here, his on ball defense is why
Thanks to isolation and becoming one with the darkness of self I have
now harnessed a semi- permanent hypnagogic state of consciousness
where the painted dream of the wayward soul is false reality bliss-

That's a cool site. CSS needs some help. Zoom is broken on Chrome Beta on high resolution 4k screen.

Basic advanced stats without nonsense extra. Good visualization.

yep Ty-Shon has been a really good story imo the way he silently built up his game not giving into the easier paths to the league.
He will surprise some people once he gets playing time imo.
I think he is a lot better with the ball than scouting reports suggest , and tbh I think Quickley is also, but Alexander is jst so much better as a 2-way prospect right now he is the higher value prospect even though Quickley has the killer stroke.

In the same tier for me, with Quickley ahead a few spots.

As a Portland fan I would take either in the second but I feel like Quickley's upside and 3 level scoring potential will make him a 1st round pick for some team look5to catch lightning in a bottle. Riller or Ty-Shon are dream scenarios with that pick.
I'm a stranger in a strange land.
If you ever see a 6'8" white dude running around SLC with a big Blazers tattoo on his right arm... Say whats up.

Interesting. Alexander has shown more ability to finish at the rim and handle, IMO. What is it about Quickley that makes you think he has 3-level scoring potential more so than Alexander?

Quickley has a beautiful floater at the rim. He won't lay it up on contact but he can get close
