    Before the draft that I felt Dennis Smith and Frank Mason were the most NBA ready guards in this draft.

    There were some questions about Dennis Smith before the draft. They were:

    1) attitude: scouts didn't like some of his body language in college because of all the crushing double teams he face

    2) reach: Dennis Smith only has a 6'3" wingspan

    3) Knee: Smith already lost one ACL, but it turns out that he already had an extra acl. No wonder he has a 48 inch vertical.

    Dennis Smith reminds me of 90s All Star Kevin Johnson, but I actually think Smith is more talented and more skilled than KJ was. Smith already seems to be more cerebral and more capable of overcoming traps than Johnson ever was.

    Dennis Smith Jr reminds of Westbrook without all that energy with a better shot


    If that made sense

    DSJ is the real deal. I was in Vegas for the summer league and went to the DSJ vs. Lonzo Ball game. The Lakers won but DSJ was COOKING Lonzo. DSJ has hints of SF3, Baron Davis, and Westbrook in him...

    His vertical was 44 inches before he tore his ACL in high school. After he tore his ACL, it's now 48 inches. :eek:

    Get him off the Mavs plz...

    I like Dennis smith he a lot but I do like this French kid a lot also.

    He's got some young kobe in him with the way his body looks and moves when kobe came out of HS.

    I think he's got a chance to be a real player in this league but he's a shooting guard imo they would be setting him up to fail if they try and make him a Point guard.
