The one who was Bella
He's not close to the prospect Greg Oden was in highschool. They can say what they want imo.
Brilliant and special athlete, but I haven't seen anything really special of him to set him apart in terms of basketball skill yet other then body control(amazing spinmove+2nd-3rd jump) scorer mentality, and overall athletic ability - If anything there's a few question marks if it's his handle, his shooting form, his passing etc.
What's more is I saw him when he was 16-17(where he was very impressive for his age) and when he was 17-18, and he didn't really seem to improve all that much in his game - that's another and prolly biggest part I'm wary of - cause the only way he can justify his hype is if he's an extremely hard worker.
That's not to say he's not a very good prospect.
He is - and if he's a really hard worker and has that fire burning in him he has all the tools to fulfill the hype eventually, but people seem to take that as a given and it's absolutely not.
My jury is still out on him and maybe I'm wrong - but from what I've seen of him play as far as putting him in the 'surefire can't miss superstar' group of Lebron or Oden as a highschool kid, I would say 'not even close'
Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.
The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.
