    We need a good thread for people to go back and say "I told you so" in a few years.

    What's your prediction for Sharpe?

    Also, what do you think he will average in four years?

    I’m gonna say multi-year all star. I don’t want to let myself get too excited about this dude.

    I just said it in another thread but I think he will be the greatest Canadian basketball player of all time. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll be a three time MVP, like it would take to surpass Nash in that one area. It means he'll be better than Steve Nash. He'll be a two way player where Nash wasn't. He'll have more ways to score on offense. He'll just be more dominant and more of a presence in games. So I'm not saying he'll necessarily be named MVP during his career (I'm not ruling that out either). My prediction is that he'll be a perennial all nba first teamer, lead the league in scoring at least one or two different seasons and be on an all defensive team at least once.

    People might think this is a huge stretch and I very well could be very wrong but this kid has such fluid and explosive movement in every direction, he has great hands and feet, he has beautiful shot... I don't know what his BBIQ is like right now and that's the only thing that makes this prediction so iffy.

    I think he is immature, has a questionable work ethic, and has no game time will to win experience.

    He has all the physical gifts and an NBA body.

    I do think he could not ask for a better mentor than Lillard. If he listens to Billups and Lillard he could be special.

    But the question is, will he listen? Will he be satisfied being a roleplayer on a playoff-focused team?

    The TRUE Maple Jordan. Andrew Wiggins can take a backseat.

    He’s got superstar potential, I think it’s just a matter of experience for him before he takes off.

    I’m so glad we got a player with his type of potential after that tank job.

    I hope he's not satisfied with being a roleplayer on any team, that would be a bad sign. I hope he accepts the role he is initially given and pushes himself to the point where his role is increased throughout the season until the role he's playing is our second best player who can dominate on both ends. If that's not this season I hope it's the path he's taking this season into next season.

    I should have been more clear, I hope he doesn't pout on the bench when he doesn't get minutes at first.

    Where did you hear this/ what are you basing this on?

    The kid has some NBA moves. You don’t just wake up one day and casually stroke threes from the logo.

    Exactly. I'm in the same place with evaluating him that I was before the draft. He sure looks good, but I'm reserving judgment until we're a few games in and I have some more context.

    One of the videos on here mentioned his work ethic.
