I thought the same thing.

Not sure this needs to be a separate thread.
That's on you... he is legit no matter how much you pick apart his game from your ltd knowledge about him.
watch more than highlights before you dig your own grave.

Zion Williamson is legit and we don't have a separate thread about him.

Also, consider avoiding nonsense like "dig your own grave". It won't wash here.

the thread was started because he is a virtual unknown... no other reason
no need to act like it wasn't reasonable because the most widely touted player in Zion doesn't have his own thread.

I think if he just "tests the waters" which is reasonable given he won't have played all season, the Cavs would be fools not to give him a first round promise and hope like hell he falls to the Houston pick.

:chuckle:

Relax my man... It's not that deep.

Nothing wrong with starting a thread to discuss a player in the draft. That's fine. Just try to foster discussion in the threads you create rather than attacking folks who may disagree with your opinion.

How about telling us why you think Ochai Agbaji should be a top pick, in detail?

First Tre Jones deserves a top 4 pick and now this guy? The losing on RCF has taken its role early in this rebuild!
In all seriousness he seems pretty raw right now, and I would think he would be best served playing another year in college. Maybe 12 months from now he could really take a leap as a top prospect with the fact that he does have some decent phyisical traits. Skill level is no where near worthy of a top pick as of today.

How about you calm down, stop digging your own grave, and give future perennial-MVP Ochai Agbaji some respect?

Dude is putting up 10.8 PPG and has an 18.2 PER, which is only 3.6 PPG and 8 PER points lower than Ohio State's own Kaleb Wesson, and only 11.8 PPG and 6 PER points lower than top prospect R.J. Barrett, who he is currently neck and neck with.

Agbaji was the 133rd prospect in the nation out of high school, and you're talking trash on him? Kaleb Wesson was only 75th, and Barrett was a pitiful 1st overall with a perfect composite score.

Stop disrespecting him!!!

the ignorance regarding this kid is understandable , but at least get your facts straight.
he was unranked by rivals & ranked #328 by 247 sports. this thread was created to make people like yourself aware of just how much of a sleeper he was...
he isn't anymore, unless you are blind.
those stats are ridiculously great as a 3rd or 4th option freshman who turned his program around immediately after being pulled from redshirt status because Self needed to use him this year instead of saving him to boost his program next season.
He could return to college, to ensure a high draft spot, personally I hope he gets a promise from Cavs and we get the steal of the draft in the 20's.
Picture this:
your Bill Self and you are at a Mokan Elite AAU game to see Jontay Porter and come away from the game talking about this kid that was clearly the best player on the floor named Ocahi Agbaji.
Self did a good job of keeping it under his hat for a short time but it wasn't long before the buzz started getting a little louder.
Nearly every hs coach in the entire city of Kansas City considered Agbaji the best player in his class, yet because he stood up against the corruption and favoritism of the AAU to coaches sons etc until that point, he stayed unknown nationally. Eventually his family realized he had to at least give the AAU a glimpse to get on somebodies radar outside of KC,
he went unranked and stayed completely under the radar until then.
After Self and Kansas realized Texas A&M gave him an offer, they immediately gave him one. 5 power conference schools gave him offers inside of 2 weeks.
keep on sleeping on him if you like.
I'm wide awake, and am confident I will be the one having the last laugh here.

This is more pathetic than Eli's Eyes and his hard-on for Perry Jones III.
