he went from 1 to 12 in like 3 weeks...what happ? Everyone on the site was hyping him so now expect it to lower...
It will probably change a lot until he gets to school. Rivals had Xavier Henry ranked number 1 for a really long time and then ended with Avery Bradley at 1. Down from 1 to 12 is a big drop though.
its more then likely because the scouts saw a couple games and said wow this kid is the best but then showed he isnt consistant, which he wasnt, so he dropped in favor of more consistant players
First of all, there are other players out there with talent as well as he has and they should have their moment to shine as well. The mentality that you have shared here, is that of a ship jumper. You're on ship when it's smooth sailing but as soon as a few waves appear, you say I knew this would happen. You don't know any-thing, if you did you would be getting paid for your psychic abilities. Were you at the games where you indeed saw his inconsistency first hand? It seems to me you were right there watching every second of play! Why are you trying to bring down this kid with your simplicity instead of uplifting another young black child with a God given talent who's not out gang banging, selling drugs, or dropping babies every where? Has he done anything to you? Right, nothing just as I thought! He has never put his mouth on you displaying any short comings that you have, and I'm sure you have quite a few, yet you think he has to prove something to you.
PS. Do you have videos of any kind or game footage that you could add to this site so that I can take a look and find all the mistakes or inconsistencies you are possessed with and write my opinions as you and others have.
FYI, the caption #1 draft pick in 2011? Meaning could he be, not that he already was.
i laughed when i saw this because he actually rised in espn rankings
I think it is because of one of the games he had. I read in a tourney he had like 0 points 1 reb 1 assist 3 fouls in 17 min or something. Not exactly good stuff for a premier talent.
im sorry but ive watched a couple of micheal gilcrist games (i know off topic) and i just dont see him as a clear number one player..he does a couple of things well but he just dosent dominate like someone whos ranked number one in his class( and some say number one reguardless of class).
Yea im not sold on him either as a number 1 prospect...
ill have to see him in a couple games prob college sinc ein highschool there prob arent many sf/pf that tall and athletic that can handle the ball or defend a person like that
