Didn't reach the growth spurt expected of him and stalled in his development which was him and his father's fault. Compared to what the hype was for him a couple of years ago i would say that he's well on his way to earning that label. But STILL i wish the best for him and hope he at least becomes a 20-25 ppg scorer in the league eventually.

Wait until he’s actually in league to make that judgment. He’ll still be lotto picks next year on potential alone. People around him have failed him greatly. He needs quality coaching in the worst way

meh that kind of line of thinking is dead with teams now. if that was the case, BJ Boston and Sharife would have been lotto picks. At this point, no one touching Emoni with a lotto pick. He has horrendous measurements, bad decision making and his best skill which was supposed to be scoring, he can't even do that.

For his sake, he needs to transfer or go the g-league route and redeem himself like Marjon Beauchamp did

He needs to get the fukk away from Penny and go to a program or staff that’s gonna build his game up. He got away with doing whatever the fukk he wanted for too long.

Its not the teams fault he is 17 and not ready to play at this level

it is what it is… he turns the ball over too much and looks completely lost playing better competition.

He is a couple of years away from being a couple of years away.

It's not him, it's Penny.

Boogie Ellis is exhibit A.
