11 games of college experience, with over half of those vs crap opposition.

The next pick & roll...the staple of the NBA... he runs at a highly competitive level will be the first.

Coming off a serious foot injury.

The more I see this play out, the less I like the odds of him being anything special...and I wasn't that sold to begin with.

Dude missed a lot of time during the college season. If he hadn't been injured, I'm sure he would be right in line with almost everyone else. I don't think it's an issue at all.

Toe injury, don't sensationalize

the 5 games before the injury he excelled in wins against marquette, Kstate, oregon, michigan state and butler, all tourney teams

when he came back he still played more than well

im not saying i dont question what the hell he's been doing in the last two months, but at the end of the day whenever he steps on the court he is a top notch prospect and you can't pass on him

there could be worse things than conditioning to worry about

Toe injury that caused him to miss, what, 25 games? I'm not overly familiar with his anatomy, but most toes are connected to feet. Amd, as anyone who has played basketball at a high level knows, the feet take a pounding unlike anything you can imagine. as Barkley has said "Most basketball players have bad knees. All basketball players have bad feet".

And he didn't play "more than well" when he came back. He was slow and tentative. The only game where he looked anything like a draft pick...not a top pick, just a selection....was their tourney game vs an overwhelmed opponent (first game he played).

His other 6 games were against Cal Poly Pomona, St Augustines, Colgate, etc. None of the games he played in was close (within 5 pts).

Yes, there are things worse than conditioning to worry about. I listed them in my post, which you chose to ignore and focus on the word "foot" vs "toe". He has never run pick & roll, has never had to be pass first, has never defended top flight players in a game that matters, and has a grand total of 11 collegiate games.

no i chose to focus on his conditioning because that is what the thread is about

and the fact that you left out that he had one of the best performances from any player this year in just his seventh game in his freshman year proves you are just a hater

so what if hes over 10% bodyfat? A player like Derrick Rose is probably at 10-11% bodyfat himself and is still one of the most athletic players in the league. Its no big deal
