Should've waited until he was drafted to say that.

They would have found out eventually during workouts. Saying it now allows any backlash to cool down before the draft.

Tho the general reaction seems positive.

He's still making the pros. He's got good potential. After Ebiid, he's one of the better big men out there.

It was common knowledge around NBA circles.

omg, imagine if he had two eyes, next KAJ...



With progressing technology, I believe a implanting fake eye would be possible sometime in the future.

One of his teammates said something among the lines of it don't matter if he only got one eye. he can shoot over both shoulders which many guys at this level can't

that can't be true can it?

It's very true. Not sure if serious.

Wait are you wondering if Isaiah can or if many guys at this level can?

He's actually pretty well known for his three point shooting at his height, which depth perception should be the most impacted aspect of his vision from this.

Last year he seemed to be lumped in with Willie Cauly-Stein draft range wise. But last years draft was really deep up front with a lot of guys with similar grades but varrying skill sets at the big positions. So you could've fallen anywhere as a big.
This year it's thinner, and there seems to be a clearer deliniation that has Cauly-Stein ahead of him. But he's right in that next group after that. Certainly a mid first rounder.

IA can be a legit stretch 4 in the NBA, he just needs to bulk up and rebound more. Other then that, he's NBA Ready.
