    Chet had a great debut for Gonzaga. Can't wait to see this in SA next year!

    From my eyes on friend:

    In scrimmages Chet has looked dominant.
    Take that FWIW but Gonzaga has been killing it in recent years in recruiting so the opposing Center and F's are not a marshmallows.

    NBA player my friend likens Chets game to: Durbetta. Yep. Besides having a consistent trey dude can dribble.
    But see for yourself as Trill posted the vid.

    They'll need a lot of luck with lottery balls in order to be able to land Chet.

    Was Durant ever that awkward in the way he moved? Chet also seems even more lanky. I will say, his handles for his size are pretty impressive and he seems to already be a skilled offensive player. But I do worry that he just doesn't move well enough for the NBA level.

    Even super athletic Greek Freak wasn't as agile and strong as he is now, obviously.
    Chet is only 19 with his college year just beginning.

    I haven't seen a 7'0" h.s. / college prospect who can move like this in ____? You?

    As to his height and shooting, Dork Novistky wasn't the most agile but got off tons of shots with his height. Ditto Jokic. Altho Chet not nearly as strong as those two can see Chet doing the same.

    A huge concern is when some es like the Morris girls drill Chet in the ribs.

    Chet Holmgren.

    The white Kevin Durant?

    Or the second coming of Shawn Bradley?

    It will be interesting to watch him this season.

    Talent. Needs to get some weight/strength. Guess it depends on where he would be picked... at #3, not sure I love. At #11? yeah.

    He looks like you could hide two or three of him behind KD. Imagine the first SA girl he tries to . Dude will be broken in half.

    You just know that OKC will get him somehow. Holmgren & Poku, twin towers.

    Zaga has an enormous advantage in that their conference is abysmal. They face good teams in non-conference and then it's a cakewalk. They always get a high seed in the tournament.

    Holmgren may have more upside, but Banchero looks more ready and polished. He's also not a twig who will have an ACL tear or broken bone anytime he lands.

    Holmgren going first pick and Banchero going second may be an exact replica of Greg Oden going first and Durant going second.

    It's already pretty clear the Bradley comp is N/A. Prior to reading these posts I kinda thought Durant-ish type player. Only issue I would think could be a guy that big tends to have recurring injuries. He definitely has confidence which we all know from some of our Spurs players means a lot.

    At this point it would be a dream if we picked him up.

    Check out Emoni Bates from Memphis State.
    It's only one game into the CBB season but we're looking at at least a 3-man draft with Holmgren, Banchero, and Bates.

    ***Bates is technically not eligible for the draft due to turning 19 in Jan 2023, but I'd imagine there will be some finagling with the draft bylaws to get him in this upcoming draft.

    If Bates isn't in, then his teammate Jalen Duren (6'11, 250) is a good candidate.
    Duke has a blue chip guard who had a great outing last night vs Kentucky - Trevor Kheels - 6'4. A perfect guy to take Derrick White's SG slot.

    Spurs getting a top-5 pick should merit a day 1 starter for next year. 3-7 is good for #5 lotto odds. I think when Houston gets Wall back and NO gets Zion, they should start winning more games.

    Leave Orlando and Detroit as the main compe ion for best odds.

    If only a young Tim Duncan was in college right now, then we would tank. Pop had no problem tanking for Tim. Why won't he tank for anyone else?
