That video tells me nothing.
- Terrible camera angle
- Playing against an entire team of white kids
- He's a foot taller than his defender

That's if he even elects to go to college. (Which I don't think he will)

Yeah the first sentence says it all. He's definitely not going to MSU. :lol:

Here's a better video of that same game. Look at that sorry ass team on the other side. This game was over before the ball even tipped off. Andrew Wiggins would have scored 60 on them too.

There's reason why he's the consensus number one prospect in 2022 and the only sophomore to win HS basketball player of the year...stop hating.

It was a 5 point game in the 4th quarter.

That says a lot more about Bates and his team than their opponent, because one look at the other team and you know it's complete trash.

And a lot can happen between 2022 and 2023. Again, I will refer to Andrew Wiggins.

Best HS prospect since LeBron James... Are you kidding me? That is pure clickbait.

Have you guys not heard of this kid before? Go watch some other vids before you start criticizing his opposition and using it as a way of putting him down, that's not a good way to scout prospects. He's got the talent and the size to be a #1 pick, but he also has a bit of fire or a mean-streak in him, if he figures out how to bring it on defense and continues to develop the way he has been, he will be a very scary NBA player.

That doesn't change the fact that he's the first HS sophomore to win the basketball player of the year award, that says alot about the kid as a prospect. I agree that he might not be the best prospect since Lebron, but the other poster was just crapping on the kid for no reason lol.

KD was a better prospect in my opinion. Best case scenario is KD and I don't think he'll be nearly as good. Still an elite prospect, but not the best since Lebron.

This kids good... really good where I think the hype is warranted unlike Wiggins, Mayo, whoever.

The only real concern is his wingspan which is quite poor for someone his height.

6'9 durant had a 7'3 wingspan, 6'9 Bates has a 6'9 wingspan.

Even better, it was 102-101 with 2 minutes to go.

Quite frankly I saw him get out rebounded a couple of times down low by a kid a foot shorter and then fail to block the kid's below the rim put back. I thought number 5 on Lincoln was way more valuable with his effort, especially some of his close outs that kept the visitors from hitting shots in the final minutes. Considering Bate's height advantage I expected to see more on the defensive end. If he isnt a stand out defender against these kids, what does it look like when the competition level improves?

How was the Wiggins hype unwarranted? He had all the tools to be a star in this league.

And for everyone complaining about the talent level of his competition, what did you expect?

Game went to double OT. Those white kids were apparently pretty good, they just clearly ran out of gas at the end.

As for Bates, he looks talented and coordinated. I don’t see a superstar though but an all-star for sure.
not strong, only aggresive cuz the power ain't directed/ that's why, we are subjected to the will of the oppressive
