Embiid, Parker, Wiggins, Randle have all the hype....McDermott from Creighton is probably the nations best player, albeit the dreaded word "upside" will see him drafted below inferior players.
Gary Harris, Nick Stauskas, Marcus Smart....big time players at big time schools in big time conferences.
What does Dante bring in skills superior to these guys?? I know he is 6'5 ish, super fast in straight lines, great wingspan....but from what I have seen (which is not a lot, a half dozen games, hence I ask), a shaky jumper and only so-so handles.
Is this kid really ready for NBA play? Having team mates that couldn't give a hoot about you, team mates jealous of an 18yo who has not proved himself, a coaching staff that don't invest that much in a players development, life on the road? Is he ready to deal with the struggles of a rookie? Especially if he is a high first rounder where the spot light will shine if he is not an immediate success?
