Son of a bitch.
And I can't even argue that.
As staff, you get a 10% discount on banning people.

I think he has the tools to be a multi-time all-star and a top 10 player in the league. I also have a gut feeling he will get there in 4-5 years. I voted Superstar because I’m feeling optimistic.
so reach-arounds a for all? Not surprised Nate is so excited.
So far, I haven't heard from one legitimate scout that Shaedon Sharpe isn't going to be a star. Not one. Usually there's some polarization on projecting players. Not Sharpe. Everyone agrees that he has star potential.
I think he's going to be a star. He seems to know it as well. I'm more interested to see how long it'll take to get going.
In an interview with Shams when asked “what is Shaedon Sharpe like on the day-to-day”, he said “I’m a chill, low-key, laid back guy. Just like to chill, watch Netflix, play video games, hang out with family and friends”. When asked what he was watching he said Vampire Diaries and Riverdale.
That doesn’t seem to sound like someone who would be distracted by other things not basketball. The fact that he doesn’t speak well isn’t a matter of immaturity.
i was a wartime mod so I needed every weapon in my arsenal. I was so far back that I actually had banning powers before sly decided to hoard them for himself.
Don't know a thing about this dude but I like that we went with a high potential prospect instead of a "ready to contribute" player. Wish I can be in Vegas to watch him play in the SL.
If he's a superstar, the Blazers will win 3 out of the next 4 championships. He has incredible upside, but until i at least see him in the Summer League, i really can't say. Dame owned his Summer League. I hope Sharpe does as well. Bottom line: the better he is, the better our Blazers will be. Go Blazers!
Yeah I guess I figured that saying “I’m going to see what happens in summer league first” was kind of boring. Royce White looked great in summer league from what I remember then for some reason couldn’t fly on planes.
I’m just excited that if we hit on Sharpe, we won’t have to draft a guard again for at least another half decade. Dame for another 3-6 years, then Ant and Sharpe for at least another 4-8.
If we develop a track record of being able do develop these so called “projects”, I don’t mind drafting raw prospects the same way OKC has every year. Still two more years until we see what Greg Brown becomes.
Is that really fair to Sharpe though? Dame played 4 years of college ball before that. Sharpe is gonna have some growing pains. To think he should or you hope he has the same 1st summer league as dame is asking for a lot.
I think Sharpe will succeed, but it will take some time.
I thought if he is able to contribute with legitimate minutes, and we are successful (playoffs with HCA) then he has a very good chance of winning ROY and is therefor underrated at +1200 odds.
But that will be asking a lot of him, and truthfully it’s probably more likely that Banchero or Smith win ROY because of the amount of possessions and opportunities they will have with ORL and HOU.
People will probably be upset if he doesn’t contribute a lot this season. But they shouldn’t be surprised. He could very well find himself behind some of our other young players.
Regardless he will likely find himself as the 4th or 5th option anyways if he’s playing a lot of minutes, which also hurts his ROY chances.
I mention ROY because he could stand to win it if he’s going to be considered some of these poll options. We’ve seen ROY’s bust overall (MCW), but you often see deserving players win it, and it’s not uncommon for the ROY to be a future All-Star.
Jay Bilas said he had franchise talent
Mike Irving from SI said he’s a special talent with a limitless ceiling
Givony said after a workout that he looked like the #1 pick in the draft….talent
Based on what? Everything I've heard says the opposite.
It looks as if Cronin was zeroed in on him quite early. The person with the most intel and time spent scouting of him was hired away from ESPN (Schmidt) and his analysis of him is great potential in the right situation.
I don’t know about you but bringing a barely 19 yr old in and having very little pressure to perform initially with a veteran of Dames worth paired with the coaching approach that is Chauncey and the other coaches on staff to learn from. I think this kid is in the right place to succeed!
plus going at Dame and Ant in practice daily will be huge.
That's what I meant. Auto-correct is the devil.

Historically, self reported "measurements" can be very off from whats actually what. Some players list their actual height while others list shoes on and then round way up. Case in point, looks like Shaedon is going to be listed almost 2" taller then he actually is. Lacking actual measurements so we can go apples to apples, I think it's pretty ridiculous for someone to claim that one players measurements are "superior" to another's
