Green, as a teenager playing against men in the gleague, was a very efficient scorer and posted a higher TS% than Cade who was playing against college boys.
Because Cade was gaurded by 2-3 players at nearly all times, Green wasn't even the first option in the G league
Green posted a 613 TS% while Kuminga posted a .497 TS%.
Green had one of the best teenage seasons in d/g league history.
I'm curious. What are the other best teenage d/g league seasons? Did those guys translate well to the pros?
Easier for me to compare what Cade did in the NCAA; he looked like a future star.
I'm not as well versed with the g-league thing... It was basically the first time 5 star draft picks (projected top 10 picks) chose the g league instead of the NCAA (from what I understand).
To me, D1 exposes some of these prospects. Zaire and BJ Boston are examples of this. Guys that were in the discussion for top 5 picks prior to the season, but because we have a baseline of thousands of freshman D1 seasons you can make a pretty good comparison and project what these guys might become. Now they are mid first and 2nd round picks. I'd argue BJ has more in common with busts like Perry Jones III etc.
