15yo 6"11 he looked quite athletic. He is leading his team in 3's, that fade away he made in the vid almost made him look like a SG. 11 assists.

Intriguing prospect

His game have reminded of

His game have reminded of Zach Randolph a bit. The kid physical has a lot more potential though being 6'11 at age 15. He will likely grow another inch at least making him 7ft.

He is 17 folks, born in

He is 17 folks, born in November 1995. But he is a hell of a player and should be a future lotto pick. I don't think he is as physical as Zbo.He has more finesse if you ask me,but more shot blocking potential than Z

Thanks. I didn't look up his

Thanks. I didn't look up his age. I was assuming his age and thought he was 15yrs old.

He already looks more

He already looks more athletic than last season. He's supposedly already working with professional trainers to help transform his body and improve his athleticism. Looks like it's already paying off. He'll never be an explosive leaper, but he can get more agile which is all he really needs with his length.
He's got the skill, intelligence, drive and feel for the game to be as good as he wants to be.
If he dedicates himself more to the post like he said he would , we could be looking at another TD....with 3 pt range. Now that's a crazy thought.

I would say more kevin

I would say more kevin garnett. He did it all for 6-11. when he came into the league there was some thought that he could be a SF but he eventually became a PF and now a center. In his prime he was a 22 pts, 12rbs, 5asts, 1.5 stls, 1.5 blks guy. He also had the outside game too, just not out to the 3 point line. He was a finesse player, it depends on his body developes and how he developes his game, but right now he looks like a young kevin Garnett.

Can't go wrong with either.

Can't go wrong with either. Either way, his potential is immense. I just think his build and level of athleticism is more comparable to TD's than KGs. How good he can be will depend on how committed he is to adding strength and working the post. As a perimeter oriented big, his potential isn't as high IMO.

I agree, I think he has the

I agree, I think he has the perimeter and all around game of garnett and the build and athleticism of tim duncan.So right now he is a combination of both. It just depends on how he develops as a player and how his body develops.

Looks like a more unselfish(hopefully more focused) Vin Baker in his early years to me

Dirk Nowitzki???

This video doesn't show it, but Karl's range is sick...although Dirk has a higher release point on his shot, but both are 7 footers and can stroke it. Karl's prob more athletic tho.

Now...I'm not saying he'll be Dirk by any stretch of the imagination...just throwing out a comparison....but to tell you the truth...you can see a lil bit of his game in all the players everyone mentioned.

Here's Calipari past, present & future bigs:

2009: DeMarcus Cousins
2010: Enes Kanter (obviously didn't play)
2011: Anthony Davis
2012: Nerlens Noel & Willie Cauly-Stein
2013: Dakari Johnson & Marcus Lee (power forward)

He's def behind Davis & Cousins...but I could see him being better than the rest of the players possibly....He still has a ways to go though

High school stats mean very

High school stats mean very little, to me, because they are often so inflated because of the caliber of competition, especially for guys over 6'6'' ( I used to guard the tallest guys on the other team in high school, lol ). That being said, this guy's physical tools are impressive and it's hard not to take notice of a player like him.
