    Post-Grad high school season? Definitely odd. I'm guessing he will just be hanging around the basketball court.

    He'll be playing. He could be doing this because of grades or test scores, he could be doing this because he's not good enough for a top DI program, I have no idea. Boarding school places like IMG Academy have really made the market for this explode.

    dude isn’t all that impressive...any attention he gets is because he’s Wade’s son, not because he’s some legit, high level prospect

    he got offers from some colleges. the primary reason is because they weren't upper level ones and I'm not sure this is gonna change that but I guess we'll see. he's currently rated as a 3 star prospect

    3 star prospect, dad sent him to Sierra with a a bunch of ELITE KIDS(BJ Boston, Ziaire Williams,etc) and thought he was getting PT. Didn’t go so well. He needs another year to get to a better school or maybe prepare for the league.

    Either way he’ll be overseas soon unless he morphs into another player in a couple years

    It's entirely possible. Most likely he redshirted his freshman year of high school.

    if that were true, it's likely everyone would have known about it, being such a high profile hs athlete with parents known worldwide. if he would have done well at sierra, this wouldn't be happening.

    I've also never heard of redshirt in high school basketball. at the college level, yeah of course

    Kids to lookout for are Brian Skinner Jr., Rafer Alson Jr , And Maurice Evans Jr. They are in the Houston AAU circuit.

    I'm extremely excited for this next wave of NBA superstars. I can wait, though. I don't want to see our current greats fizzle out too soon.

    LeBron Jr., Zaire Wade, LaMelo Ball, Luka Doncic, Giannis, Embiid, tons more.... gonna be a fun league.

    I wish it was. It would be a blast seeing a flamboyant gay wreck the homophobes and talk trash. Flamboyantly gay inside linebacker would also be pretty sweet.
