    He got a promise he liked, so he's low balling it.
    Now, that's trust.

    Doesn't seem likely though..

    I am thinking OKC. Multiple picks, and high on analytics. Also, Memphis if he is there at 22. Just a hunch. Could be others… Could it be the Spurs? With 20 or 25?

    Guys, no one has promised Jake LaRavia. No one.

    Good stuff! I just assumed there were stylists guiding them towards such things.
    Not to derail a thread but were you BTS in the camera department?
    I was actually a ghostwriter/consultant that watched what happened on many, many sets.

    LaRavia seems like he’d be a really solid role player on a team that already has an established superstar, but he wouldn’t move the needle much with us. Think the Spurs pass unless he’s clearly BPA at 25.

    Pleasantly surprised that Roddy is a legit 6-6 in shoes, with great wingspan (+5.5), decent standing reach, and seems to have big hands as well for his size.

    I was prepared for him to be like 6-4.5 in shoes, I guess his bulk just makes him look smaller. Slim him down enough so he can move better on defense and he could be a great bench hustle wing with the strength to play up some.

    I'm on that Roddy train for 38. Choo choo!

    That was a good surprise and gives me some hope for him. His vertical wasn’t great but the other numbers are probably more important for most basketball actions.

    There will be better players at 25.

    one of the nastiest ankle breakers I’ve seen from a prospect this year at 13:40

    he has more sick crossovers in this video as well

    seems like he has the ball on a yoyo

    i dont remember the last player with a wingspan of 7’2” that can handle the ball like that.

    What fascinates me about this whole combine process is how we obsess over physical measurements: over height, wingspan, leaping ability—putting more emphasis on these things than a prospect’s actual ability to play basketball.

    The past few years draftees are becoming younger, earlier to hone and develop their skills at NBA professional level, especially with the advent of G-League. Of course there’s still the bball iq, mechanism and character. I mean with Giannis he was 18 yrs old and a buck eighty pound?? and the Bucks basically made him the player he is now. That’s my take.

    I really like what I see from Jalen Williams, kind of has that Keldon esqe motor, if he fell to #38 that's a great snag imo

    He reminds me a little of Primo in that BY FILM he seems to lack explosiveness. Yet his combine results suggest otherwise

    Don’t say the word Primo around here or the folks obsessed with him (and make every single one of their posts about him) will come barging at the door. Jesus Christ. These guys need to give it a ing break.

    And the measurements are promptly forgotten as soon as they're drafted. You still have to be able to play the game.

    But are any of these guys high character who interview like they are more mature than teenagers? Just a bit of fun I couldn’t resist.

    High foreheads and being slow are a plus!
    Quality post.

    The film test is the eye test. Would you know by viewing that Boris Diaw had an elite level vert?

    I won’t be surprised if the Spurs draft him at 9. Seems like something they would do. I mean, if he’s tge best player at the combine, what else do we need to know? Joking aside, he could be very useful on the Spurs.

    And this is why players fall. We are starting to see tweets about guys working their way to the lottery level and there is only a finite number of those picks. Someone will drop, hope we can exploit it.

    Good to see Jalen Williams getting a flurry of eyes and positive scouting reports on his offense in the last week or so. Playing at Santa Clara almost always has that factor of hiding players, being west coast + smaller conference. It was a few decades ago, but once upon a time #15 Santa Clara upset #2 Arizona in the first round of March Madness and caused a stir which today looks like a pretty unsurprising outcome-- a team led by Steve Nash beating a team led by Chris Mills.

    Really interesting thread with the standing vertical reach and the max vertical reach by positions.

    a few takes :

    - Koloko is looong plus his nice shooting from 3 yesterday. Not bad with the late picks
    - Ej Liddel continues to impress me, he looks explosive and long.
    - Moussa Diabate tested well
    - Leonard Miller can jump tough he's has the lowest standing vertical reach among PF's ( he is listed as a SF)
    - Kendall Brown is a big time athlet
    - Laravia testing a little bit low vs others PF
    - Jalen Williams is huge man
