His stocks are crazy, even for NKL/LKL play. 2.75 STL% + 5.17 BLK%.


I am glad he went NCAA route, looks exactly the caliber of player to perform well there and grow his stock moreso than being upcandcomer in LKL.

Rich mans Jeremy Lamb isn't a bad comp imo. Kinda similar frames. But Lamb had a 6'11 wingspan and a 8'5 standing reach to make up for his 6'5 height. I'd need to see Bostons measurables. But imo not a terrible comp.

Pretty close? :dontknow:
6-10 wingspan

6-10 wingspan

At 6-7 with a 6-10 wingspan, you can't miss the fact that Boston has outstanding size for a shooting guard. He perfectly fits the mold of a wing who can spot up and stroke it from three and mid-range.Feb 20, 2020

Boston's playing style really + length really reminds me of a shorter Durant. He obviously has different moves the closer to the basket he is due to size difference but on perimeter and how he uses a little shake and bake to get into his drives, Durant comes to mind.

i get that comp stylistically i guess but i don't like it, what makes Durant Durant is what he can do at 7 feet specifically, it's what makes him a match up nightmare offensively, and you can't extrapolate that to a guy 6 inches shorter

That's a good looking format you have there. ;)

Why so high on Petrusev?

That's Adrian Griffin Jr.'s older brother no? both sons of former NBA pro and current sought after assistant coach Adrian Griffin Sr.

He runs floor very well, can finish with both hands, finishes in lane through contact, willing passer, intelligence with making proper pass spacing and he’s simply the next great Zag big man with terrific coaching IMO.

If you have around 15 guys over Garuba, that must be stacked draft, that man is the next great Euro, give me some more of Garuba stock if you selling.

He’s a good looking prospect, problem is he’s only 6’8 and has virtually no offensive game outside of 6 feet if we are being serious. It’s one thing to be Dok from Kansas who also has no O game outside of (4 feet) of low block as well but Dok is 7’1 240... not 6’8 240. Usman IMO ceiling is Trez, while that isn’t a knock but Trez isn’t going to any AS games anytime soon.

Well, he just turned 18 and I disagree that he has no offensive game. First of all, great handle and passing for a PF/C, can run a fast break, or be high post playmaker, high understanding of the game, jumpshot somewhat in development. Man is absolute package for a big, his main weakness is just scoring, which is most common commodity in the NBA right now, there are so many guys who can fill that void, but with this man, you get defense, rim protection, rebounding and playmaking. He is basically a better Bam, Bam with more range and better shot blocking. Just very few prospects can contribute on Real madrid at age 17.
