    Honestly if you've watched the highlights of this guy and can't see his moves then you must be blind.

    Check the crossovers, spin moves, behind the back, putting the speed on, kid can do everything off the dribble.

    Not to mention his passing, getting in the lane...... etcetcetcetcetcetcetc

    He's playing against virgins.
    + We're not getting him, no draft next year.

    Theres a lot of guys who aren't even in the NBA with mixtapes like that.

    Crossover/Dunking against no competition isn't really a true indictator that the guy is the real thing.

    Not saying he will be a bust(I made him in College Hoops)
    But waaaaaaaaaay too early to project anything about him for now until you see him against more real competition.

    Coming off screens
    Pick and roll passing

    Didn't really see too much to none of that in the video.
    Thats more important in the NBA than crossover and dunks.

    this is (the john wall > the world) thread.which is why i posted it.this is not about him being a bust or not being on this team.i trust in donnie to do what he can to get him if he feels the same way i do, and if he feels lebron will remain in cleveland.

    he's the best amateur basketball player in the world.bar none.

    Your right about that, I see him coming to college as a bigger more scoring Rajon Rondo then transform into a pass first D.Rose(Wall's handles, first step and agility to make him unstoppable driving to the lane for a free trip to the FT line, easy 2pt shot or a dish)

    What college is he going to? He's going to be one and done...

    IMO, why don't top 10 hs players(only top 10) go to the NBDL...NBA needs a development league like the MLB...Not triple A or AAA, but one for every team...so we could have a crop of prospects waiting for us instead of heavily relying so much on the draft...that would create a hope for most teams in the NBA. Like the Spurs who are aging and may ask who their future is. They have some Euro talent stored like Tiago Splitter, etc...but I feel the NBDL should be the league for optimal development)

    College basketball will always be college basketball with or without the HS superstars.

    I just feel its best FOR them to get developed right away.

    Its not fair a guy like Ricky Rubio gets the chance to improve his skills at a higher level than most High School kids because in Europe you can go pro at 14...same with soccer. Thats why a lot of these Euros are really skilled and fundamental...thats why Euro is good at soccer, experience from an early age. Many USA kids get into organized athletics in HS...while these ****ing Europeans become pros at 14-16.

    If we had a NBDL team(one assigned to each team), guys like Sene would be getting burn instead of sitting in the bench.
    Theres a lot of young bball talent looking for an opportunity and its hard to get into the NBA unless your 7 foot or have a 40 inch vertical...this would be a great opportunity IMO.

    12 man NBDL roster
    Keep some of your guys from Summer league.
    Call up guys when theres an injury to the active roster.
    Each player gets a salary, but to the minimum.

    That way we could get a better look at guys like Jennings instead of watch games online..we could see what Jenning could do in full time stats instead of ride out to HS hype...same with guys like Mullens and JRue.

    If they're not going to play a big role in their college team, why would they waste their time? Some coaches have preferences, but theres players preference is to develop, not realy contribute to a trophy fora college program(unlike your JJ Reddick or Tyler Hansborough, guys with limited potential who are built for college). Guys like JRue and BJ want to develop and get big minute to show case to professional teams they're efficient players worthy of a lottery pick.

    If things were like this, Holiday would of probably went 4th overall in the draft, and Mullens could of gone #3 to OKC since they traded for him with Dallas.

    College could and should always be an option, but its not fair to a professional athlete who feels like his only option is college.

    Thats why I give Jennings props for having some balls and being independent.

    There should be another option besides college and overseas.
