@Peezus Most of his score at will points come off a fast break against 6'3 or smaller guards. If you really think Ben Simmons is going to be scoring 20ppg like LeBron James, your crazy. I love the way he plays, sits by the free throw making plays for others. His defense is incredible. And his rebounding skills is great. But what I'm saying is if he can't knock down shots in the NBA, he will not be a franchise player.
A little too finesse - needs to be more aggressive
Doesn't willingly engage double teams
Hands are a work in progress
Slow to disengage
Could play with a lower pad level
Very raw and inexperienced
Could get a little stronger
Occasionally disappears in games
Summary: I love JPP's skill set and I think when it is all said and done, I will give him a first-round grade. However, I am going to be conservative with his evaluation right now. I have questions as to why he bounced around to another community college, as he must have struggled academically. Sometimes he doesn't seem to love the game, but for the most part I like him as a prospect and he is worth taking a chance on. I'll be very surprised if his name isn't called in the top 25 picks.
Player Comparison: Gaines Adams. Forget that Adams was a bust in Tampa. This comparison has everything to do will the SKILL SET and JPP is exactly like Adams. Different intangibles could lead to a different career for JPP.
