I’m well-aware of his history. He was a highly recruited guy, but that doesn’t really mean a ton when trying to project his NBA career. There are tons of guys who ranked ahead of him that won’t even get drafted. Hell, Garland was 24 spots higher in ESPN’s class rankings.not to pry into the convo but KPJ was highly recruited and was expected to be a lottery pick before college. He had some issues with authority and those things along with some injury issues hurt his stock and as it turned out hurt it a lot being passed on for more proven options like Windler or lower ceiling ones like Jordon Poole. KPJ does have a ways to go like any 1 and done, but I think it is safe to have high expectations for him
I’m just trying to be realistic. He had a solid rookie year, and an overwhelming majority of rookies are bad, him included.
Again, I’ll be happy if he turns into a guy that can play rotation minutes on a winning team.
