I'll take him over Chet over the simple fact that White American players don't have a track record in the league.

The best white American player we have now is Kevin Love, Gordon Hayward, then 36 year old JJ Redick?

Lol

I think :o is pretty solid analysis of this kid. :D

If he is the size they say he is, and he looks like it, then...damn. We found the bully ball driver to take up where James leaves off.

Scary talent if he is really 6’11. I always thought he was 6’8ish. He is very strong, has good touch and solid moves down low and has really progressed with range.

I was questionable about his potential if he’s 6’8 because I’m not sure he has the quickness to be versatile on the defensive end. But if he’s really 6’11, then he’s a solid 4/5 in today’s game. The height and progression with his jumper has turned him into an elite prospect.

If he has the Size/length to play the 5, he is going to be a menace. If you have to play a big with him, he will still be good but not top level in the NBA.

PJ Tucker plays center.

If this dude has solid to good efficiency...watch out. Top of the line prospect.

Plays center and being a fulltime center is two different things.

You see the legs on that kid? He’d have to be 3/4 inches shorter than claimed for it to be prohibitive.

I’m also not clear that center is his best position yet. Need to see him at Duke.

Was curious so I checked.

Goddamn.

Yeah, this dude is a center. He's got legit Yao/Barkley type legs.

I know you've been down on Duke lately, But I'm extremely optimistic about Banchero/Griffin duo.

I thought this was about the latest Argentinean player, lol.

He looks big, but more like 6'9'' or 6'10'' to me, judging by the video in the 1st link on the thread.

ESPN have him as the number 1 draft pick the next year, I don't buy that . There are better prospects than him in the USA and internationally. There are some Bagley vibes with him.

Banchero is better right now than Bagley. And it’s not close.

And I’m a Kings fan.

I am not comparing their games , but in the sense that there will be lots of better prospects than him who will be picked up after , international 2003 generation is very strong and I see many players there looking more talented than him, but this the only early projection.

Said kid was nice, and he's a high level QB at his HS as well. Just an athlete in general. Last kid we said that about snuck into the top 5. Not saying, but I'm saying. gonna keep my hand in the popcorn bucket and just watch.
