isnt 6'10 a little too tall for a PG? Heck, he could play center with that height!

This guy actually looks pretty sick. Apparently he has a brother with some athletic ability as well.

Euroleague is right for once. This guy is a top 10 draft pick this year.

Weak Draft he will go high. Has potential but is still raw and had a chance to be a big bust or a big pay off
He isn't that hot though is he? I've seen hotter dude no homo

I don't know. Chris Sheridan thinks he's hot. I don't really know if he is or not.

He might make it in the top 20. I'm predicting somewhere in the 20-30 range.

People say its a weak draft every year, but there are far more polished players in the draft, and teams are often sketchy on taking a risk with a Euro player these days.

Reports in Greece are that him and his agent were told he would go between 5-10 in the draft by numerous NBA general managers.

Your link doesn't show ESPN talking about him at all... Your link talks about Chris Sheridan, who has went batshit crazy, talking about him.

I don't see him getting picked before McLemore, Noel, Smart, Porter, Oladipo or Zeller.

Who knows? You could be right. Maybe his draft stock is rising after a few NBA GM's went over to check him out in person. I personally think he'll turn out great due to his great physical advantages; maybe just needs to bulk up a bit.

Love his game - I call him Giants because, well, its just easier to say and remember.

Rare to see somebody that tall dribble that well with his left hand. Better than Durant who was the best 6'10 dribbler I had saw before this guy. I didn't see much of his court vision, a couple of clever passes but you can guess he isn't always a passer. Shows a little of everything in his 45 point game video. Noel definitely doesn't have a video to come close to what "Giants" shows there. His left hand is fully developed and skilled already - already at an elite level for a wing player. Spin moves and cross overs are Penny Hardaway like already. Makes Danny Manning look like Steve Urkle. Hands seem to be noticeably bigger than Jordan and Doc's. Seems like a more creative Pippen right now vs. lesser comp and without Pip's great concentration.

Has good timing. Has a good touch. Coordination/athleticism/versatility are top notch already.

Don't know how soon he will gain weight. Don't know how speed will affect his game. Has more potential than anybody in the draft now, and even has the possibility of being like Noel defensively. Has the potential to be a top foreign player ever.

I see him going from the 5-15 range, all matters on how his workouts go, and they should go good. Athletic marvel this dude, apparently just had a massive growth spurt and has some more to go.

I see him playing SF in the NBA, and you can compare him to Lebron James a little bit, obviously with half the talent though.

Michael Carter-Williams will have a better career in the National Basketball Association than Giannis Antetokoumpo.
