    very few teams get top draft picks. 70 percent of these turn out duds not dudes within 5 years. even if kai goes during the 2nd round or even starts as a journeyman, he can still be a gem. kendrick nunn wasnt even drafted. yet the heat showed he is superior to draftees in real-world fight conditions. lots of players drafted ahead of donkic and herro. the ones who chose wrong are regretting their very bad decisions. there will always be greater and lesser players, and very few team managers factually cant tell the difference.

    until he gets to play as a pro, people are just waiting gallons of saliva on meaningless and unfounded analyses and irrelevant what-ifs. the fact is kai consistently passes the fiba tests. lots of caffaros do not.

    on the perimeter, i think chet will give kai fits. on the other hand, i think kai can score over chet on the post. kai seems to be the bulkier/stronger player over the two.
    Yep and I also mean, I wasn't offended even with them picking chet over kai because Kai is just a newbie in the circuit. I was even surprised at how fast he got ranked. obviously, despite not being the most athletic 7 footer in the radar, scouts are seeing kai as a prospect because of the other facets of his game. Footwork, high bbiq, ambidexterity, good touch and his passing ability. I'm not saying chet doesnt have those , I know too little of that kid but we've seen kids who move like that like TJ Leaf and some thought they'd be dominant in the pros

    ESPN is the only recruiting service that has Sotto ranked, and Manotoc points out something interesting: That ranking is solely based on what he’s done in international competitions. It came before he ever played a game of high school basketball here, and as he acclimates to the competition his ranking could go even higher. It also leaves him with a bright future. With Sotto’s size and skill, Manotoc believes that some NBA team will eventually take a flyer on him. He may never turn into a star. But you just can’t teach the natural gifts from God Sotto hashas.

    Ranking was just based on fiba games. Even before TSF. WOW

    nikola jokic was 19 when drafted in the 2nd round (41st) which was considered higher than his average position in mock drafts. this despite being already an MVP in the adriatic league. here's his scouting report prior to getting drafted:

    Strengths: Very high basketball IQ, This is his greatest strength. Strong personality. A team player. Has a great work ethic … Tremendous length … Can really shoot the ball … Hard worker … He was first introduced to real professional training – strength and conditioning as well as basketball workouts in September of 2013 and has shown tremendous improvement in his body … Possesses a big wingpan … Considering the fact that he competes in the Adriatic league, where most players are older than he is, and also that he’s an average athlete, he uses his basketball IQ to succeed… Nikola understands the game really well. Furthermore he is able to follow and execute coach’s instructions. Shows a winning attitude, competes hard in games and practices … A self starter, doesn’t need to constantly be pushed to get the most of his abilties … Well liked by teammates, outgoing, strong character, doesn’t drink or smoke … Young player, born in February of 1995 …

    Weaknesses: An average athlete lacking great speed and leaping ability … Foot speed is a big liability. He may struggle to stay in front of NBA athletes at the center position … Needs to improve as a post player, gain strength and develop a repertoire of back to the basket moves … Defense is a real weakness at this point due to lack of lateral speed and lack of strength. His length is a big plus, but he’ll need to continue to work on becoming stronger and learn to anticipate in order to overcome his lack of quickness … Despite being a younger guy, his upside appears limited by his lack of explosiveness and foot speed …

    If you redact everything that refers to the Adriatic leafgue and Jokic's personal info, you would've thought the scouting report was referring to Kai.
    Keep running, big boy.

    I was actually enjoying a fruity drink at a rooftop bar somewhere in Poblacion. E ikaw, Nathan, anong ginagawa mo ngayon?

    You are nobody. Not here, not anywhere. Your opinions have no weight and you live in your mother's basement, fantasizing about being mentored by Tony Tancaktiong. Mahilig ka pala sa matatandang Chinese, ano?

    Whether if kai becomes a star in the NBA, or a journeyman, or never even makes it at all, Kai is already much better than this poor soul's old boytoy Cafaro. Even better than those recent u18 and u19 aussie bigs. And that's enough reason for sound sleeps at night. So, goodnight now.

Aj as the same age as Kai went to Toledo,without even playing a single game in America,living on his own like a grown should be.

    A lot of celebrities ask people to handle their social media accounts for them. I'd rather his tita handle it, while he focuses on basketball.

    Even if the target is Europe East West is doing a good job of showcasing him around high visibility US college programs.
