Are these official measurements? He doesnt look 6'8 to me either.

He's standing next to Moses Moody, who's 6'6". So I think he's around 6'7".


He's clearly a couple inches taller than Moody. Look at the top of their foreheads.

Doesn't take blinding athleticism to throw off the defenders balance just enough to get the look you're comfortable with. Just know THE game and know YOUR game.

Shots didn't fall, was Santa Claus with the turnovers in the second half, defense didn't slack, body language didn't falter, and confidence didn't waver.

Early on I saw a lot of Brandon Roy. I still see a lot of Roy but I also see notes of Joe Johnson in him as well.

he has the same body language that Simmons had. His talent is immense so he flashes constantly but he's not putting his body on the line to jeopardize his NBA career for a meaningless one and done year so he appears lackadaisical and "too cool for school". His coach is embarrassing and his teammates aren't any good so that doesn't help. I think many of these top guys resent needing to go to college. If not for them hiring his brother (how is this legal?) as a coach I really don't think he would have chosen to go to college. Anyway, back to his play...

His game is made for the NBA. He won't shine with collapsing defenses and no shooters around him. He's going to be a PnR nightmare for defenses and with his passing, BBIQ and ability to score on all three levels he's going to be a perennial all-star. He had a bad shooting night but several shots were halfway down and he was being doubled. He won't be doubled in college so it'll be real tough keeping him contained. The deciding factor of whether he becomes a superstar will be how serious he takes his conditioning. If he's like Giannis and hits the weights and is a workout warrior he'll be a superstar. If he doesn't he'll be a star but not ever in the MVP discussion like his upside suggests is possible.

Hes looking good. He shouldn't have a problem playing the 2 depending on the team. I hope Pistons land him bad.

He’s leading an ordinary team to very competitive results against top Big 12 teams like Texas Tech, WVU and Texas. Extremely impressive leader, and great to see him prove he elevate weaker teams (he’d already proven he could lead extremely strong teams in FIBA and HS).

he's just very heady, very high BBIQ, so methodical and effortless in his positioning and how he runs the offense, love how deliberate he is with his decision making with the ball...just NBA-level IQ already and should be a stud day one.

Do people have him as a 2? I've had him as a 1 from the start and don't think he'll struggle defensively there, but it seems like there are a lot of different opinions on his position.

Don't think anyone has him listed as a two but his size and defensive versatility allows him to be played alongside another point guard if that's what your team was structured already.

He's basically a 6'7" Ben Simmons who can shoot but is not quite elite on defense. He's a can't miss prospect and should go #1

Uh he's 6'8" 220. :crazy:

Dallas fans getting worried about another potentially similar player entering the league. Trying to downplay his frame/weight/height.

Don't worry, he's not Luka.

how about just leaving him at, you know, PG.

I can definitely see situations where he plays and thrives at the two. Obviously, his ideal position would be the one.

Ideally, he’s 1+2.5. Runs the offense, guards a smaller wing, preferably a shooter to save some energy to run the show.

I didn't see last night's game but for those who did, what's the deal? He finished with 5 points on only 3 shots in 31 minutes.
