I think we all are surprised with what type of player he is in the NBA, as a rookie. And how he is doing it as well. He is WAYYY more athletic than anyone realized while he was in college.
Hes 7'0 with shoes on, 238lbs with only 6.2% body fat. And has a good vert for a big (max vert of 36inches)...

Tony Snell, Dieng, and Hardaway Jr all were late 1st rounders this past year.
And then when you get into the 2nd there arent that many guys that are even on an NBA roster...

The consensus top 4 teams are Miami, OKC, Indiana, and San Antonio. And we have seen teams play great, and then slowed down as the season gets deeper, like Phoenix (3-7 last 10) and Portland(5-5 last 10, but 1-5 last 6) . You could argue that the Bulls are the 5th best team in the NBA. The only team...
