Another year, another European prospect has emerged into the spankbank of the media. On a serious note, the kid is good – very good. Just not worth taking him over Porter/Bagley. Any NBA franchise that drafts Doncic over Marvin Bagley and Michael Porter is bat shit crazy. Like, serial killer crazy.
The name of the game is athleticism and versatility now a days. Having a seven footer that runs and guns like Porter and Bagley is very valuable for the lowly NBA franchises that take a shot on them.
