 Russell Westbrook Jr. Holy crap is this kid athletic. Probably out of range as the #4 prospect. 23ppg 10 APG.

 6'3"

Jah! He's been moving up the draft boards. Still turns the ball over a lot, ala Trae Young last year.

Pretty sick dunk last night. (it's also in the highlights video in bottom link. A must watch!)

Here's some more sickness from this kid.

That dunk was absurd. Don't know much about the rest of his game but he sure seems athletic enough.

The new rules really benefit skinny athletic guards. I'm not that concerned about his shooting.

Biggest question is whether he knows how to play in a system where he isn't the system. Is he more Monte Ellis, Russell Westbrook, or Damian Lillard?
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

yeah that last question you pose is a good one

Hard to tell


Off topic but I read other people feel he celebrates too much on the court almost after every single shot he makes

So Westbrook.

Seems nbadraft.net thinks highly of him

They have him picked #1 https://www.nbadraft.net/2019mock_draft

They also messed up the Memphis pick because they have us picking NAW at 6 which is impossible but its all good lol

Reminds me some of a young Jamal Crawford. The ball-handling, the way he drives, the variety of floaters and off balance runners, the pull up jump-shots, the slender frame with plus size/height PG, combo guard type game.

Anyone else see a little rondo/kyrie in him? Behind the back then leaping pass to the numbers on the perimeter

I mentioned in the other Celtics draft thread, that I'd be curious if we ended up with all 4 draft picks whether Ainge would consider packaging them all and trying to move into the top 5 and getting Morant.

Here are some highlights of Morant in a recent Murray State game

Really like this kid. In addition to Zion, I think Morant and RJ Barrett are going to be very good.
