It's purely mental with him (although gaining weight will help lol). He will either want to be a really good player, or he will cash his checks for a few years and find another league to play in.

Can predict all you want, but it's hard when it comes mostly down to the mental side.

Add that there are concerns about his knee and that basketball is not his first love. He switched when he became too tall for football. Does not have good court sense or a lick of toughness. Destined for nothing but talk about his "potential".
