Jaden Ivey 

Post#1 » by The-Power » Wed Nov 24, 2021 10:25 pm

Haven't seen a thread for him in the thread list but he is deserving of one. He has tremendous upside. Incredible speed, loves to attack and plays with energy on both ends (even has some nice off-ball activity). He also seems to have huge hands as he can easily palm the basketball. If the shot creation for others he has shown versus UNC is for real – and that is all about his mindset, the ability is there – and he can shoot well enough from deep to keep defenses honest, he has a chance to be special.

I really hope he can develop his jumper and a pull up game.

I'm not familiar enough with all the prospects yet to say top 5 but certainly lottery.

Gonna need to continue working on his shot but he looks awesome

We were talking about him in the summer at the Juniors World Cup.

Stood out like crazy, was expecting this kind of jump in his sophomore year based on his team USA play.

This guy looks amazing. Great handle, creative, very decisive in his movements.

He looks taller than 6'4'' too.

Top 5 in this draft for me, taking into account I just started following this year's prospects and there's much to be seen.

superstar. Like Fox and Mitchell. It's laughable that people are calling this a bad draft class

It’s hard to make an argument for anyone other than the top 3 bigs to be ahead of Ivey at this point. He’s looking like a solid top 4 prospect now. He keeps rising whilst other guys who were considered on his level at the start of the season (Hardy, Baldwin, Duren) remain stagnant or drop.
