Everything you need to know is in my 20-minute video report, but here are some additional notes that I first posted on our Discord server:
It all started (figure of speech) when I finally plopped down to watch ESPN DraftExpress’ Mike Schmitz video scouting interview with James Wiseman and he got to the part where Wiseman took a rebound 94 feet plus the finish, and probably an and-one…
This is when my eyes popped out of my head and I then believed Wiseman was a no-brainer. You can search my tweet. It was about 1-2 months ago as I slowly gathered more intel and finally watched the Schmitz interview with Wiseman which was a video done SIX MONTHS ago (!). Literally when this play came on early in the Q&A right after Schmitz said, “If you could create the prototypical NBA player in a lab, it’d be you at 7’1 with 7’5 wingspan...” I didn’t need to watch the video further (because I’d already seen the behind the scenes stuff of him dribbling and shooting).
Again, watch the YouTube video report for the full context.
Also he speaks Chinese
Yeah the Mike Schmitz interviews are pure gold. The one with Halliburton or Wiseman compared with LaMelo was all I needed to see. Night and Day difference. You put it very well with being self-critical. This is incredibly important when evaluating young talent.
