The difference between Brandon Miller I watched at BWA and the Miller I am watching at SECT is night and day. The inside game, rebounding, shot blocking has gone to the next level. Just love watching his game. Whatever NBA team that drafts him is getting a KD.
Watching Miller makes me wonder what Nick Smith would be like today if he had played the whole season like Miller. Man, we missed out on watching greatness.
Miller maybe even more talented than Nick, but as a GM, I would take Nick over Miller any day. An ability to make good decisions in life is just as making decisions on the court. Miller may give a bigger bang for the buck earlier than Nick, but Nicknis the better investment in the long run. Miller will likely surround himself with people who do not have his best interest at heart. Nick has a good head on his shoulders and has proven himself loyal and committed to the team. Miller just loves and is loyal to himself.
Hopefully not often injured KD, but that type of talent. 6-9 with that smooth of a shot, with better handle than KD is unique. He may move up to #2 in the draft ahead of Scoot Henderson. Really, a NBA team can’t go wrong with either Scoot or Brandon. Again wish Nick had a full season. He could be right there with those two.
I must add intensity. Joe Johnson was highly talented and his long successful NBA career is a testament to that talent.
NSJ is meteoric in combination of talent and a ferocious intensity that should serve him well in the NBA. In a partial year we seen enough to place him aside Sidney Moncrief at pinnacle of all Razorback basketball players. I have little doubt that he would eclipse Sidney if he played two full years. He takes over games in the same fashion we were privileged to watch with Moncrief and Byrd that final great year of college basketball in 1979. NSJ is approaching that height but is not yet there with this year abbreviated by injuries and leaving for the NBA.
