i thought he would be top 5. he's better than number 2 zion in his class
Dude is a chucker that plays no defense. It's an accurate rating imo.
he still doesn't seem to be trying his hardest in games
terrible shot selection, even tho he hits them shyts sometimes
everything else he's top 5-10 at tho
Dude is 6'5" and isn't even rim grazer status when attacking the rim. Not particularly long despite his height, on top of lacking lateral quickness and explosiveness which makes him a huge defensive liability. He's actually NOT a good shooter, and you'd know this if you looked up his percentages throughout his career thus far, but part of this is also due to the fact that he has possibly the worst shot selection in basketball history. Turnover prone, bad decision maker, and quite frankly should actually be lower than 18 and would be if his last name wasn't Ball.
18 is fair.
If he was in 2020 he's top 5. Imo.
He's not physically mature & isn't a pure shooter & turn over prone.
A lot of his class is a older also.
Most born in 2000 but some top guys even 1999.
Maybe back when newspapers were popular and youd see "92 points" but we got youtube now, eye test > nerd test
Honestly no hate, but what does lamelo do well to be ranked 18th, maybe its a week class in general?
From my perspective dudes not very fast, bad shot selection doesn't play defense, has some silly turnovers too
You don't know his wingspan so what are you talking about? He has above average length for a PG just off his height. He should be taller than both his brothers too.
A lot these dudes are flawed or more flawed than Lamelo Tbh. Plus their older sometimes a lot. They just have age & hops to hide it.
Cassius Stanley is high ranked just based on his explosiveness he's an almost 18 year old SG JR who can't shoot,pass and bricks FTRs. 18 is very fair for a guy who able to pass,drive,get off shots at a high level while not being physically developed and young.
He outplayed Jaylen Hands in game I saw live.
That D1 reality check is gonna be big for this kid and the middle brother.
basketball iq, defense,strength and shot selection is lacking.
This kid needs to gain some pounds....
It's like this nikkas diet soley consist of ing lucky charms and shyt
no discipline at all in his game, he is talented but damn he needs to get a real coach fast who can teach him how to play a little D and take better shots.
Melo a Has a knack for scoring, not the most athletic, horrible IQ ,streaky shooter but can get hot. Horrible defense however.
He looks like he is gonna be 6'7 and with that BBBAll hype alone hes damn near a lock to be lottery pick. How he translates at UCLA will depends ,how high he'll go.
Did he grow taller? I thought he was 6'3
