I love watching this kid play. He seems to be a happy go lucky kid with super high character, the perfect face for the game.

If you know his life story you have to love the guy but his appreciation for his life in the NBA is incredible.

Wow, there are only about 5 players from that entire draft. McCollum at 10 was a steal, Giannis of course, but other than Burke, Porter and Gobert, not much else.
Oladipo at #2 too! He was a late bloomer but he's a two-time All-star and an All-NBA guard.

Edit: Steven Adams is great too.

Bennett was one of the biggest busts ever, Oladipo is starting to put a career together but when you see guys like Cody Zeller at 4?!?

The kid euro-step dunks from the circle routinely. He’s the most physically gifted player that has probably ever been and he’s only 24.

Sure, this is more like a recruiting video where nobody misses, but we should be looking for kids like this.

I know a few once-in-a-generation 6'11 athletes with point guard skills, growth potential, unrivaled work ethic, and hands that could palm one of those weird spinning globes in middle school. I'll call them up.
