DeAndre Ayton 

Post#1 » by perezident » Tue Jul 7, 2015 9:23 pm

Everyone needs to familiarize themselves with this kid. He is from my home land The Bahamas and he's ripping up high school basketball in the US. He comes from a history of basketball greats from the Bahamas, namely Mychal "Sweet Bells Thompson, his son Klay Thompson, Rick Fox just to name a few.

DeAndre stands just shy of 7'0 and is only 16 years old. Last I heard, about seven (7) top college basketball programs have reached out to him. I hope he chooses Kentucky with coach Cal.

Another (college) player to look out for from the Bahamas is Buddy Hield from Oklahoma St. We grew up together in a small town on the island of Grand Bahama called Pine Dale Eight Mile Rock. I am so proud of these guys.

Saw him for the first time a few years ago as an 8th grader when he came out to play against high schoolers in an AAU camp. At that age you could see the potential.

No idea where he's going to go to college. I expect that recruitment to be a circus.

Big time prospect, but energy is a bit inconsistent and his production isn't always amazing for a player with his tools. Rumor is he probably won't play any college ball.

I'm going out on a limb and say Ayton and Porter will play out similar to Oden and KD

Ayton will go #1 and Porter will go #2, Porter will go on to be a top 5 scorer in the NBA for years and years to come and in the new NBA a 7 footer like Ayton won't be as effective.

Don't get me wrong, Ayton is a monster, but I question his desire a little bit. Seems like he doesn't care at times on the court. With big guys you always have to wonder if they'd be actually playing Ball if they were smaller. I think maybe the fact Ayton looks like he's 50 similar to Oden is why I'm saying this, but the change in direction of where the NBA is going is why I think it as well.

OT - I was at the Hoop Hall Classic in Springfield for the first three games today. Michael Porter Jr. & Wendell Carter are the real deal. Porter looks like he could play in the NBA today.
