Summary: Antetokuompo is perhaps the greatest mystery of the 2013 NBA Draft. He possesses all the physical tools and potential to be a very good NBA player due to his size, versatility, and room to grow. Antetokuompo likely won't contribute in the NBA anytime soon and figures to be a draft-and-stash guy who could possibly pay huge dividends down the road for a team willing to roll the dice. I wouldn't at all be surprised if he sneaks into the lottery, though the late teens/early twenties seem like a more realistic landing spot.
Player Comparison: Evan Turner/Devin Ebanks mix. Since Antetokuompo is such a unique prospect, this is a tough one. Turner and Ebanks both were considered "point forward"-type prospects early in their careers due to their ability to handle the ball for their size and contribute in multiple different facets of the game. I think Turner sprinkled in with some Nicolas Batum is Antetokoumpo's ceiling while an Ebanks-type player is his basement.
Okay, the cardinals arent over rated, didn't you say Kevin Minter was a one year wonder? How would losing him affect arizona? He won't be very good in cincy, im calling it now. Losing Tony Jefferson wasnt a huge deal either as we do Have Tyrann Mathieu, and Tyvon Branch and Antoine Bethea, ontop of Harlan Miller, who also isnt trash, maybe do some research, and why does Calais walking make us bad? He's older and will be less effective in Jacksonville, though i don't think our D-Line will be a world beater, i don't think Robert Nkemdiche will be bad, so there's that.
