    I hate watching Rui not because of him but because of college basketball

    Ain’t nobody trying to see a bunch of duck in jump hooks

    I would expect his rebounding numbers to be higher but in college there's always factors for these things

    Offensively I don't know if he'll ever develop a 3 point shot but he reminds me of a throw back type. Maybe he can max out to be like a shorter but perhaps more athletic Vin Baker

    That seems pretty reasonable as a realistic outcome rather than a floor or ceiling comp

    Can't think of any comps for Reid. He's definitely a unique prospect. I need to get a read (pun intended) on his mentality/mindset. Have never heard any interviews

    When someone outright does the cabbage patch on you going back up court you gotta take that to heart

    This kid celebrates after every bucket :lol:

    Watching Bol Bol .. for some reason got me thinking of Shaq and more recently Okafor and Embiid..

    Not their gameplay or style of play or anything basketball related but..

    Do you know how rich you have to be to afford to feed a 7ft athlete and not just feed them but have them well fed like Shaq and Okafor...

    Just imagine the guys that come into the league "fat" and are 6'10 and above ... like damn are their parents millionaires.. how does someone that big and involved in a sport that requires constant running get to be near 300lbs as a teen

    You act like all they eating are lobster , steak and shrimp . You can get fat off the dollar menu . The dude on the Blazers (that played at Purdue ) was 300 pounds homeless

    Plays with an uncanny calm and poise to his game. I see the tools.

    I get Andrae Blatche vibes from Naz Reid and that is both meant as a complement (highly skilled) and a diss (kind of a floater).

    He’s not a dullard like Blatche at least.

    Surprised Moses Brown is flying a bit under the draft radar. Haven't seen him on any mocks.

    Mobile 7-2 big that rebounds and blocks shots. He's easily a first round lock.

    Kinda disappointing how despite almost always having someone in the lottery, only 3 Duke players in the last 20 years were NBA all stars. Too early to tell with WCJ and Bagley, but Tatum will get a nod.

    1999: Elton Brand (1)**
    1999: Corey Maggette (12)
    2001: Shane Battier (6)
    2002: Mike Dunleavy (3)
    2003: Jay Williams (2)
    2004: Luol Deng (4)**
    2006: Shelden Williams (5)
    2006: JJ Reddick (11)
    2009: Gerald Henderson (12)
    2011: Kyrie Irving (1)**
    2012: Austin Rivers (10)
    2014: Jabari Parker (2)
    2015: Jhalil Okafor (3)
    2015: Justice Winslow (10)
    2016: Brandon Ingram (2)
    2017: Jayson Tatum (3)
    2017: Luke Kennard (12)

    Just watched some stuff on Kira lewis. Goddamn.

    And Ja 1v1 wiggle crazy. Love his feel. It's cool to like him as a prospect now, but he's legit good.

    I just saw him against Cincinnati this week and he looked awful. He hardly impacted the game at all.
