He scored a ton of points leaking out on offense, do you think he scores like that in NBA playing the 4/5? I don’t.
I think offensively he might be a more athletic PJ, who shoots threes and scores a little down low. However I don’t think he has any superstar upside.

If he could replicate his college success where he was the college player of the year in the NBA that would equal being the MVP. Maybe one player in 50 replicates their college success in the NBA. However, his shooting and finishing skills are probably the best combination of those two skills in the draft. For example my Wolves want to play 5 out. He's about the perfect player for that. I'm not advocating for him at #1 overall. I just think the naysayers regarding him are a bit over the Toppin.
