    These guys are twins both 6'7 with above average nba athletecism/fast twitch, above average size, above average wingspan. Looks like they will be fixtures of the nba for a long time aka Morris twins. Ausar looks to be a bit smarter/craftier/one-step-ahead compared to his brother, Amen maybe is more aggressive offensively more westbrook like as far as I can tell. Regardless they both look like solid top ten picks for next year (although it is super early)!

    Athletically on another level, even against adults. Locked in defensively. Explosive dunks and contorting acrobatic finishes. Easy to see why theres buzz.

    Shot looks weird and needs fixing. The handle needs to be tightened up, and despite being "point-forward" prospects there was a little too much ISO. But the flashes are so bright. They ended up losing by like 4 this game, but I think they more than held their own.

    Need to see them against better competition to get a more accurate read on where they're really at.

    They've been putting on a show though

    Have the game on in the background while I work..

    Thompsons
    • Still athletic and dangerous on defense and in transition.
    • Mixed results in half court creation. Some nice moments operating in PnR.
    • Brick laying from distance. It's looking rough. Improved on freethrows though.
    • Handles can get loose and result in turnovers.
    Nikola Djurisic #11 is a nice prospect as well. Will have to review his possessions, but he's knocking down 3's and holding his own.

    Edit:

    Amen Thompson: 18 points, 10 rebounds, 9 assists, 5 steals, 4 blocks, 4 TOs (5/10 2P, 0/4 3P, 8/8 FT)

    Ausar Thompson: 18 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 block, 3 TOs (7/15 2P, 0/5 3P, 4/6 FT)

    Nikola Djurisic: 24 points, 1 rebound, 6 assists, 6 TOs (4/9 2P, 4/4 3P, 4/5 FT)

    I haven't seen much of these guys yet, but they intrigue me.
    I'm someone who values passing and shooting quite a lot.
    Amen has incredible vision from what I've seen, and the ability to make the game easier for his teammates
    But is he Michael Carter Williams due to the lack of a shot?

    i wouldn't risk taking twins. Always have to remind yourself that not all twins are equal, there's bound to b a superior one between the two and it would suck to pick the wrong one.

    Ronde and Tikki were both pretty good.

    Lol different sport. Fact stands tiki was more decorated than his bro.

    He won a ring, more pro bowls and 1st team all pro.

    I'm pretty sure it's already risky enough taking a gamble on a rookie, picking the better twin is even riskier
