Yeah, I wouldn't go that far, but I tihnk he'll be a solid player. I still think he might be best as a 6th man/scoring spark off the bench. He's got a ton of confidence and, when he heats up, he's really tough to stop. He's got a lightning quick first step and, once he learns to finish better in traffic (something all rookies struggle with their first year or two in the NBA) he will be really hard to defend.
With that said, I don't think he's going to end up being top three in this class. One really good game doesn't warrant that kind of overreaction.
