A consensus Top 150 prospect by several recruiting services, including No. 137 by Rivals.com and No. 151 by 247Sports.com…

That's the greatest pass I've ever seen. Spinning a ball in that direction with your right hand is impossible, then at that distance, my god.

it was definitely an amazing pass, but i have to disagree on the impossibility of it for a right hander. I think the natural motion of throwing a basketball one handed your arm motion would tend to move toward the outside and cause the ball to spin clockwise like throwing a football.

but yes, passes like that...or like when a 6'2 guy is in the lane and shoots a layup almost going away from the basket to avoid it getting swatted and then spins it off the backboard...that stuff is always  :love: :love:

It a toss up between Suggs and Cunningham for the #1 pick or is one a clear favorite? I don't follow the basketball Mel Kiper.

I assure you it's not. Next time you're in a gym, try it. The reason why it's harder is to throw a basketball with that much spin you have to put your hand on the lower half of the ball to generate the spin. Even try it without a ball, put your hand at 3 o'clock then turn it both clockwise and counterclockwise, try again at 6, 9, and 12.

Going into the season Cunningham was thought to be the consensus #1 pick, but he isn't considered a generational talent so whomever eventually goes number 1 will depend on the needs of the team drafting.

Jonathan Givony is thought of as the premier mock draft guy but he hasn't released a 2021 mock since the start of the college basketball season. Unlike college football, a lot of the national college basketball media usually have a pretty good grasp of draft prospects too. Fran, Gary Parrish, Matt Norlander, Jeff Goodman, and a few others also usually have good draft info.

throwing motion had nothing to do with it.
that hard part about putting that much spin on that pass had more to do with the length of the pass which meant that he threw it at like a 10 degree angle to the floor. as a grand master level basketball player, i was impressed with the youngster's effort
