Simeon

Excited for tonight, Gordon, Twins, and DJ Williams of Simeon. Any one else out there think Parker won't be that good in the NBA?

I wonder how much Jabari will

I wonder how much Jabari will play. He's out of shape and carrying some extra baggage.

Andrew Harrison is injured too, but I don't know the extent of the injury. He missed their last game which they lost.

I really hope Andrew's injury

I really hope Andrew's injury isn't that serious so he can play tonight, I want to see how dominate his HS play is compared to Rose Evans Wall.

Aaron Harrison has JR Smith

Aaron Harrison has JR Smith like shot selection. I understand he's more talented than his teammates but his hero ball is ugly. Even if his brother was healthy, I think he'd still take his share of awful shots. He really knows how to draw fouls though. He's not the quickest guard, but he's got a nasty handle and knows how to use his body to create space and contact.

Andrew's injured, this isn't a good game to evaluate him.

Aaron Gordon doesn't look like a SF at all, but he's sure trying to look like one. Aaron Harrison put him on skates a couple times. His handle isn't good either. He tries some advanced moves but it just looks sloppy and premeditated. Good passer and great teammate though.

I agree. Gordon looked more

I agree. Gordon looked more like an undersized PF with an unrefined game. Kind of reminds me of a less fluid version of James Michael McAdoo.

Aaron Harrison's game is

Aaron Harrison's game is slower than expected and has a poor shot selection as said above, I thought he would be more explosive as a bigger guard and have that killer instinct to not rely on his jumper where he shot very poorly going 6-27 before OT majority of his points came from the line

Matt Jones - Desoto looks

Matt Jones - Desoto looks good so far. Nice pure jump shot. Finish with the left. Long arms, also running some point.

I understand Jabari has been

I understand Jabari has been sidelined for 5 months but damn he HAD to have been eating some twinkies.

I can tell that he hasn't worked out an athlete's diet yet which is common for high school athletes.

What a letdown overall.
Not a good night for prospect watching. Matt Jones looked great. He looks quicker off the bounce now and even showed some PG skills, but he looks like a 3 yr college player to me at least.

Jabari was an absolute liability out there.

Aaron Gordon

I was highly disappointed in Gordon. I had heard so much talk about him but when i tuned in, I absolutely saw nothing that was worth talking about from his game. HE has no handles at all, it was frustrating t see him trying to handle the ball. His fluidity is not that good. I think he just benefits from being on that team where he is clearly the best player. IDK, but maybe i have to watch him some more. I just didnt see a skill set.
