quote:

In the latest installment of “Catch a Rising Star,” Boston Celtics president Dany Ainge traveled to Greece to get a first-hand look at Giannis Adetokunbo, the 6-foot-10 point guard who is moving up draft boards by leaps and bounds.

Ainge was in the house — and got heckled by Lakers fans — as Adetokunbo scored 19 points and grabbed 9 rebounds and had two steals in the championship round of the Greek A2 league.

Ainge also saw the CSKA - Panathinaikos Euroleague game, and was quoted by Greek media as comparing Adetokunbo as reminding him of a young Scottie Pippen.

quote:

Our draft guru, Joe Kotoch, currently has him at No. 24 in Mock Draft 1.0.1 and says he would not be surprised to see him shoot up into the lottery, much like Bismack Biyombo did a few years back.

I doubt he shoots up all the way to where we'll be picking. But you never know, maybe we'll trade back into the first.

I'm 43 and I think I could still play on some of the teams he's playing against.

He has giant hands for his height it appears.

Also I don't see why we wouldn't consider a bunch of raw prospects because most players currently consider at the top don't look like can't miss prospects either.

Aminu played at Wake Forrest. So that's a weird example

well he's playing U18 ball which is shit, bu the greek league isn't that bad

he's a "draft and stash" kid. he needs some seasoning on the senior team who owns him before coming over here.

Tony Mitchell>>>> this guy

Now I realize Mitchell is a PF but the few times he played SF this year he did pretty good.

mitchell looks like a possible tweener/stretch 4, but he sucked dick shooting the 3 this year so that's a worry

perhaps last year was just an outlier? also his FT% went down 6 points this year, which is worrisome

he's also 2 years older than the spider man

Last year he got much more open looks from 3 because people were afraid of him driving to the basket.

That I don't understand.


Also something that is more worrisome about him is how he struggled running a slower tempo. Last year he was in a much faster system (Johnny Jones ) and recorded 2 or 3 30/15 games. That is just insane. This year he never came close to a 30/15 game.

Way too raw. Crazy young. Not sure he goes even in the lottery but it is a crazy weak SF class.

Tony Mitchell>>>> this guy

He can't play sf in the NBA, he's like a poor man's Derek Williams.
He is one of the most gifted players in college basketball and he still didn't dominate in the freakin Sun Belt. I doubt he becomes anything in the league.

According to the video his weaknesses are:
Motor/Effort
I.Q
Shot Selection
Raw Offensively
