Cade is like 6'4-6'5 for real and is a stick compared to Luka.
Uh he's 6'8" 220.
He's listed at 6'8" 220.
Theo John of marquette is listed at 6'9" 245.
If you watch Marquette vs OSU you'll see OSU had Cade boxing Theo out all game (they basically play Cade as a 4 on defense in their zone). Cade was in position, under theo but Theo got like 4 rebounds while Cade was boxing him out because Theo is just so much bigger.
Watch Dawson Garcia (listed 6'11" 245lbs) post up Cunning ham and tell me their is only a 3" 25lvs difference between the two
Cade was giving up rebounds to Dawson even when he was in position in front of him too, because Garcia is just soo much bigger.
Cade is just really skinny, yeah he can add weight, but he'll always be built more like a KD than a Kwahi.
If you look at the recent best players on championship teams, Steph, KD, LeBron, Kwahi, they are all either extremely extremely strong with great athleticism or are all time great shooters.
Cade dosen't project as either of those things.
That's not a knock. Cade is my #1 (I had Kuminga their but I need to see him in better quality video to put him over Cade who's floor us soo high).
I'm comfortable thinking Cade will be a guy who although a very different skill set than Devin Booker, is year in and out ranked in the same range as Devin, by mass media, RealGM, AllNBA selections etc. Some where in the 10-20 best player in the league perennially.
You'll see when Cade makes the NBA and plays Dallas if you think he and Luka are the same height, because that's just silly. Luka also has way more heft than Cade.
Lukas pre draft comparisons to Manu are probably more applicable to Cade, whereas Luka is like a giant Manu.
