^This. If you can convince a team you’re worth 10-20 minutes per game during your rookie contract you can make 8-18 million a year. You can retire at 30 with over 80 million in career earnings and with right moves set up your great grand children as Trust Fund kids.There are completely average NBA players earning $10m a year. Hell, there are average NBA guys making $18m a year. You can now earn generational wealth by being an average NBA player, back then that wasn't the case.

Hurley used the term "immaturity" multiple times in his postgame comments so why get on HuskyinSC for quoting the coach whose job it is to develop JB? If you didn't watch the interview you should because it's the most I've heard a coach publicly call out a player in years, especially a high profile player.
No, he got hurt as a junior. He was a 1st rounder if he left after the NC.
I'm getting on him because its a borderline ridiculous take. Immaturity based off of his play? We're not talking about a senior, we're talking about a Wooden Award watch sophomore, 2 games into his 2nd season, while avg 19 ppg and 6rpg on 52% fg.
What more do ya'll want?
Nothing bball wise to add to your post, but looking at that mock, imagine your name is David Duke and playing basketball in Brooklyn...smh...He's mocked in the first round - everywhere - right now.
By your own logic, as of this moment it makes entire sense. Literally right now he is predicted to be a first-round pick by... everyone.

google it. Right now. FIrst-rounder. So he doesn't need some major breakout, he just needs to perform at current expectations and then take his first ticket to millionaire-ville. In fact I would argue for his long-term success it makes more sense to be drafted into the middle/late stages. You land with a better organization with better chances of success and development and lower expectations.
