    I would LOVE to see the footage of the Lawson vert attempts...


    You're telling me after multiple attempts his highest was 26"? just sounds too ridiculous....


    11% bodyfat too... With a vertical like that you'd almost expect this to be 14-17%

    Because Keldon Johnson does the things Royce does, but better. He's more athletic, shoots better, has a floater game, and plays hard-nosed defense like Royce. So if you like Royce, you should love Keldon.

    He's doing a pro day in NY today. I think he's going to fall to the 2nd round, and guys like Samanic and Bazley are going to go late first.

    Nah, he is not near that hard-nosed a defender. The rest is maybe he has a small advantage if anything, but honestly some of it probably goes Royce's way (Keldon's shooting is way oversold, man was a 70% FT shooter).

    His role will be very similar as a 3D wing. He can play at the 2 or the 3. He can guard 2 - 4. He can slash and score at the rim. He can knock down open shots. He can move the ball. He's a better athlete. You're drafting him to play that role as a better version of Royce.

    You know this based on Keldon playing in the NBA or are you just talking out of your *** again?

    The disrespect Royce Oneale gets by fans around here is un-****ing-real.

    Royce is a better athlete. Keldon is too below the rim for my liking. Especially in traffic. He also isn't very quick laterally. He plays with effort though.

    Keldon reminds me of someone and I can't quite put my finger on who. It's definitely not Royce though.

    KCP. He isnt the defensive workhorse that Royce is.

    Guys, I like Royce as much as the next guy, but the dude averaged 5 ppg during the regular season, just like the year prior. And while he shot 39% on 3s this year, it was based on cherry picking 2 attempts per game. He averaged 10 ppg against Houston in the playoffs and stood out because the Jazz only have 2 or 3 players who can go to the rim and make an open look. Also, Houston didn't give a **** about guarding him. Lets not act like guys who are more talented aren't better prospects or won't be more successful in the league. As it stands, it took Royce 3 years just to become the rotation player he is.

    And as it stands, it was a dumb comp because they play nothing alike.

    Kelton isn't that talented. He just a regular prospect. He has a lot to prove on the defensive end to be mentioned in the same sentence as Royce.

    Cam Reddish is the ultimate empty gym guy, workout warrior. Long 6'8, athletic, makes shots being defended by air, etc. Put him in 5 on 5, he can't play the game.

    I don't feel like that is the right comp either. Keldon is a more physical player, gives more effort on defense and in general, and he takes better shots. KCP is a better pure shooter but chucks too much for his own good. His defense and effort have always been suspect.

    Keldon’s a genius.

    Well i mean to sit here and compare 19 year old Keldon Johnson to soon to be 26 year old Royce O'Neale, and for no one to bring up age or experience.....

    I'd have to say this seems to be a exercise in talking out of your ***, from all parties involved..
