    Carter got them small hands and short reach
    Sexton smaller than I thought but he plays bigger
    Shai Alexander needs to get in the weight room asap for his height
     
  3. Thank god so the narrative of him being too small is done. I was watching something where McGrady call him on the small side...but the next shot they showed him doing a interview with Sexton and he’s clearly taller then Sexton and put 13lbs.

    There's nothing from Luka's offensive tools that make you think that he has a much higher upside on that side of the ball?

    Let’s keep Lonzo out of this thread :lol:
     
  7. Same wingspan as steph, and 6'2 in shoes. He'll be good in that department. Him being taller than Sexton is surprising though.

    Not really, no. Both of their success will be dependent on hitting perimeter shots. Zo already is an elite defender in this league which already gives him a huge edge over this dude.

    Trae is the most intriguing prospect along with MPJ in this draft because of the boom/bust potential. I don't know if I like Trae in Orlando, but that's looking like the landing spot for him. Hopefully MPJ goes to NY or CHI.

    Luka being bigger stronger, much more adept at changing speeds and craftier around the basket put him at an offensive advantage over Lonzo already.

    So Colin Sexton is actually slightly shorter than Trae Young eh?

    Wingspan can make one guy look considerably bigger than another.

    Idk man I think it'll be hard to match Lonzo's prodigious 10ppg on 30/30/40 shooting.

    Why do they measure height without shoes?

    So we can determine real height.

    What if player a wears high heels to the workout.
