I think the kid is good.. it seems like he’s injured for a game or 2 then back for another 3 point game ... thoughts?

When healthy, dude looks like the real deal. Take a closer look at some of his numbers and I think it's clear he's definitely not overhyped. I just hope he can stay healthy and have a good career. Seems like a great kid.

Watched him a lot in college. He is absolutely the real deal. The combination of size, strength, agility, and quickness is unlike any other player. Also because of his athleticism his excellent court vision, passing and great hands are overlooked. The only question in my mind is if he can stay healthy.

He seems like a really nice kid and when playing he has impressed me. I think they are being very careful with him since he’s got a lot of weight on him right now. His knees will be the enemy.

If he can get in with Kareem and some other technical big men this summer and get a sky hook and some finesse moves in the post I think he can make a living around the block even being shorter than most bigs. His explosive ability combined with true technique would reek havoc on the current big men in the league

I love to watch him play but his bio mechanics are so bad. I can’t help but watch and wonder how long he’ll last. Even watching old rose highlights high school to the nba should’ve seen that injury coming.
