    I mostly agree. Rudy Gobert is very exaggarated, both offensively and defensively. He has not any weapon at offence, looked like 16-year-old ameteur against Pau Gasol and was blocked by Pau three times '' officially''( I counted 4 times). Even Semih Erden hadn't looked bad until our guards locked down by Frenchies. He is Ömer Aşık-type player, no more no less. He can never bring his team up.

    Ante, Jonas, Hezonja, De Colo and Vucevic can do it. I would also add Enes Kanter but seems like he will never play for Turkish NT so I cannot count him. Anyway, They are ''highest quality'' players in this arena but never a '' true'' star. Jonas is not new '' Sabonis'', Hezonja not a new '' Stojakovic'', Vucevic not a new Pau Gasol... Being superstar and being '' high quality'' is different things. Players who makes huge difference are superstar like Nowitzki, Parker and Pau or Sabonis, Petrovic, Gallis, Stojakovic... I don't see any superstar potential from present situation.

      First we should agree till what age player is "young". In Lithuania we even have unofficial term for some players - "forever promising".
