    Saying "not bad stats" would be an understatement.

    The competition that Kai was exposed to was really high & very good for his age so registering such stats is no mean feat.
    "A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move himself, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power, when you stand before God, you cannot say, 'But I was told by others to do thus,' or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice." - King Baldwin IV

    Can anyone dig out the stats of Kobe Paras' last season in HS in the US before college?

    It will be interesting to compare Kai from Kobe's.

    With the exception of the TSF Pros he was against players who were probably within the 17-21 year old age group.A lot of the players recruited from abroad were older. He improved a lot because of them. Wonder what's next.

    Right put nba africa and nba latam in uaap. They will always win.

    Yes, the mere fact that he is in moch draft and svouts radar says that he is a nba potential player

    Too bad we dont know his stats in bwb. Maybe his lowest outputs there.


    Kai in Tsf is a monster. He did not even go half a year in US, he managed to be a legit nba prospect.

    Kai's assists will be higher if he have more competent teammates. He averaged 8 rebounds ONLY? Maybe because he play alongside wilmore.

    But Averaging 20.7 points against american players are incredible. Those players are 10 x bettter than our uaap players

    Dont know about the level of competition. This was for Junior or Senior high. I think Kai is playing against generally older players compared to Kobe

    Additionally, you can dig his every game stats here

    Paras is very inconsistent. His shooting ate terrible. Though he have some good games. And he is a 3 star recruit

    Kai is 5x better than him or even more. And Kai is a High 4 star recruit(Turning 5 star)

    Not mentioning yet that Kai have tougher competition

    I think the lack of rebounds happen when he is gassed already or when opponents are really athletic. The most significant difference between UAAP and the US players is the size and athleticism of the players he encountered. He was always facing multiple players who were 6 9 and above. He really did well all things considered.

    maybe kai sotto is the one that tab mentioned about the 17 year old kid

    https://www.spin.ph/basketball/fiba/...a2437-20200222

    "So what are the potential? The potential we could see is a 17-year-old come in that that's playing and finishing up in high school in the States and instead of going to an NCAA or UAAP team, that they could potentially come straight to Gilas. There are scenarios to which this pool could grow other than the draft."

    Yes, obviously it is Kai. Playing for Senior Gilas can Help Kai increase his draft stock.

    Just like the israel player in 2020 nba draft. He dominated Fiba europe. Now he is projected lottwry pick

    That is if the Gilas coach give Kai minutes we all know that our Gilas coaching staff treats young players differently than veterans, they usually give young players shorter playing time
    “When we are saying this cannot be accomplished, this cannot be done, then we are short-changing ourselves. My brain, it cannot process failure. It will not process failure. Because if I have to sit there and face myself and tell myself, ‘You’re a failure,’ I think that is worse, that is almost worse than death.”

    - Kobe Bryant

    Local coaches, yes. But foreign coaches, I don't think so

    If it was Cone, Yeng Guiao or Austria maybe but not within Tab’s system. He’s already that He can win against professionals using a college varsity team. Kai will play for sure because he is our best individual player right now even if you include PBA players.

    With Junmar injured & out for about one year & Greg Slaughter taking a leave of absence from basketball, Kai is obviously our best local center right now. Despite being barely 18 years of age, I think Kai is better than either Almazan or Baltazar right now.

    Unfortunately, this may indicate our shallow depth of talent at the center spot.

    this is kobe's junior year for catherdral.
    for his senior year he was not eligible to play for cathedral hence he played for middlebrooks academy prep team were I believe he averaged close to 25 ppg against not so competitive opponents.
    imho kobe's 15 ppg in his junior year was his best basketball year because he played against legit top 100 HS prospects like josh jackson, tyler dorsey, stphen thompson jr., marcus lovett, etc.
    whereas in his senior year he played against no namers and basicaully just stat padding.

    imho kobe regressed from since his HS junior year. and not playing meaningful minutes in Creighton just made it worse for him.

    Guys, assessing the teams that Kai's team TSF had played in the US, what are the strength of most of those teams? Are those teams stronger than UAAP college teams?

    No doubt, teams like the NBA-Africa & NBA-Latin America are really highly competitive. They are obviously way stronger than any UAAP team, but what about the rest of the teams that TSF had played against?
