Video: Isaiah Austin Mixtape

Don’t let the spectacles fool you, 7-footer Isaiah Austin is one of the top players in the class of 2012. And don’t let his height fool you, either; kid moves real well on the perimeter.

    That is a very nice skill set for a young big man. Very good handle and smoothness, shot is ugly but its going in – at least right now. Those blocks are kinda irrelevant long term, due to the kids he’s is playing against, but you absolutely can not deny this young fella’s game. Would be cool if Perry Jones sticks around, and LaceDarius (SERIOUSLY???) acts like a man.

    that’s a lot of jumpers and crossovers for someone that tall. Nobody likes the post anymore.

    I’m not sold on his athletiscism. But good skill set for his height.

  • thalilbigkahuna

    His arms are ridiculously long.

    @Allenp…definitely a lost art, all of these kids today wanna be gaurds but hey this kid is a friggin rail, not to sure I’d want to have him banging down low. I see a Marcus Camby Lamr Odom hybrid here

    He leans to far left with his shot!

    No question. I know there won’t be another Dream, KG, C-Webb, J-O. But they had the permiter game and the post up game and handles. Better than anyone.

    next gen is the coolest nickname ever yo…WE STARTED IT HERE!! ISAIAH “NEXT GEN” AUSTIN

  • gani

    dude’s got game. nice handles and range.

  • matt

    for all you guys saying marcus camby what are you smokin?! haha. Camby didn’t have half Austins Skillset. Camby was a great defender and athletic as can be. Austin has more of a skillset like Dirk. The kid is 7’1 16 years old and hasn’t even hit his junior year of basketball yet. I like the “next gen” though

    too much

  • C-Mac

    Boys got game, needs to fill out a bit tho, looking like too much of a stick out there

  • TxLA

    I like how his game is coming along. He is ONLY 16, and I think he’ll be doing very well for himself in the years to come. He used to be soft as charmin, but hes only a KID!

    I’d hate to see him 50 pounds and a low block game later. BUT, before he reaches that “citywide” love, he needs to dominate the circuit like L.Aldridge, D. Arthur, C.Bosh, K. Martin, before him, cuz in DALLAS, nobody is scared of him, but he’s on the right path!

    Very humble and talented, has a great father leading him as well.
