    I know this kid play ball with him...Michael Porter is a monster...he is the next Kevin Durant. He's about 6'9 right now with elite athletism and shooting. He can create his own and shoot over pretty much anybody who tries to defend him..he will be 1 & done and top 3 pick.

    Jarred Vanderbilt is a smooth point forward who's a man amongst boys almost everywhere he plays.

    Jayson Tatum

    I'm a big fan of this kid...He is better than Simmons,Brown,Maker,Ayton, or Potter as far as HS prospects go.

    He committed to Washington to they gave his dad an assistant coaching job. He's a senior and will be coached by Brandon Roy next season. He's my prediction for the number one pick in the 2018 draft. He's 6'10 with crossovers, elite athleticism and shooting.

    I wish we should tank for him. He seems like a once in a generation talent. Looks like all his brothers might make the nba too.

    I don't know about all of his brothers he has like 6 siblings. Jontay Porter will be a lottery pick he's going to skip his sr season to enroll at Mizzou a year early.

    Jontay is a shot blocking stretch 5 with a great feel for the game. He's about 7 foot and skilled in the post.

    Michael Porter Jr would've been the number one pick in this year draft

    Porter is talented but I want to see more toughness from him. He's got the skill let's see if can put the work in to develop. He's got a FULL toolbox but is he Kevin Durant or Rudy Gay? Either way he'll be a very rich YOUNG man.

    I agree he's still got to show more toughness and show he won't give in. Will be interesting how his Missouri Tigers do vs Kentucky

    Yeah ok I thought Ingram was the next Durant?

    I'd like to see him play against top level college competition first before you call him the next Durant, IIRC wasn't Austin Rivers the no. 1 ranked player in high school? He looked like baby Curry in highschool and shoo in for top 3 pick. A lot can change in 1 year.

    I don't know why people compared Ingram to Durant. I watched Durant at Texas he was an unstoppable scoring machine. Porter Jr at 6-10/11 is much more similar to Durant.
