    hops!!!! needs a consistent handle and jumpshot though…the scary part is he may still grow a few more inches and end up 6’9 or 6’10

  • fruizm

    javale mcgee 2.0…..but seriously, he looks like he could really really good…..and sick pass at 1:20.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    He’ll translate as a 3 or 4 at the next level, depending on how his frame fills out.

    Drew Gordon’s little bro…man to think he’s 15….just wait till he puts on some muscle…Next Blake Griffin

    Definitely has (pro) cornerman potential. Reminds me of Wilson Chandler or Al Harrington

  • robb

    kids today are beasts WTF!

  • lexluther703

    He moves awkwardly, really long and lanky. But his hops and his potential are undeniable.. plays the game with A LOT of passion as you can see, could be a pro or a con depending on how he uses it. Nice vid though

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornerman_%28basketball%29 X

    Wilson Chandler or All Harrington game…future pro Cornerman

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornerman_%28basketball%29 X

    His game reminds me of Wilson Chandler or Al Harrington….if he keeps developing he can definitely be a pro cornerman (3/4 tweener)

  • Riggs

    wow 15 year olds who are an inch taller than me, i feel short AND old now. smh.

    easy with the comparisons bro, dude probably still has his puberty voice.. give it a couple years then we can compare

  • hambone

    kid is a video game and he`s only 15….

  • elmaar

    if the explosiveness and handles catch up with height he’ll be a monster 3 man at the next level
    a taller rudy gay

    What the hell did his parents feed him?

  • kb24mj23

    Its a d*** shame that he won’t get to finish high school, since the world ends in 2012.

    frozen laptop…my bad on multiple comments

    Know what I love? How his teammates keep throwing him alleys. That’s what I’m talking about!

  • http://dillanleuyahoo.com Holy Baller

    Seems amazingly skilled, but amazingly full of himself as well.

  • http://www.slamonline.com c_cantrell

    ^holy baller..
    that pride issue is goin to kick his ass at the next level

  • http://dillanleuyahoo.com Holy Baller

    I hope so, because he has SO much potential. Hopefully they get his attitude in check.

  • http://slamonline.com robleh

    woow, hes gonna be great

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    Not bad. He can get a free degree with that.

  • bigslim31

    What a prick, slap his high-yellow @$$

  • todd_10

    Damn, kids got some some raw talent, at 15 sky’s the limit!
    I’d like to think there’s plenty of time to coach the arrogant posing out of him too…

  • Bryan

    He’s a sophomore…..who cares?

  • kevin

    @Holy Baller & C_Cantrell as someone who’s actually spent time talking to this young man he has a great head on his shoulders..he’s getting people pumped up to watch his video, not doing an in-depth, sit down interview..

  • LaMaravish

    Don’t hate I bet u can’t do that right now

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    prideful? arrogant posing??….like since when is it out of bounds for a 15 year old kid to play a sport he loves with emotion???? haters gonna hate tho

  • KC

    wow only a soph?

  • marc

    From what i seen i don’t think he is arrogant at all. He dunked on alot of people and he didn’t even give them the stare down. He is just playing with passion and emotion.

  • fruizm

    id rather see a player thats really intense on the court than someone with talent but no emotions….like Tim Duncan.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Mars

    Joakim Noah 2.0. Noah was beastling everybody like this in high school as a New York City point guard, then he had a ridiculous growth spurt, and the rest is history. This kid will probably be like 6’9, 6’10. Hopefully he’ll develop. Good luck young buck.

    Oh, and Drew Gordon for ya’ll who don’t know is one of the few bright spots on UCLA’S squad, and the reason VCU (he didn’t play) broke everybody’s bracket.

  • http://www.slamonline.com c_cantrell

    hey f*ck you, im not hating just stating truth
