    Dude is probably our SF of the future (I said as much, even when people claimed he should only be SG) depending on what we do in this draft. At the very least, people writing it off as shouldn't happen are going to look foolish. "Play him at Center then" - famous quote by Bobby Knight when people wanted to pass on Jordan.

    Lol i was getting so much shade here by some of you for saying Shaedon can still grow last yr and be a mainstay SF.

    6'8 is tough to believe but sure why not.

    Do you have any concerns that too much too quick and may affect his agility, etc?

    sometimes a quick spurt causes people to lose their balance and what not?

    im a bit concerned

    Who is this guy with 100 followers and what credibility does he have? I don’t believe this… but will be happy if it’s true.

    I went from 5’10” to 6’3” from age 15-17. It totally knocked me off my sports balance. My senior year in high school i was a walking toothpick and lost all my dribbling handles.

    now im not saying im anything like sharpe but to say its just three inches is minimizing the potential effects a growth spurt like that can have on coordination.

    Shaedon's athletic prowess might be a little different than yours. I think a dude that moves like he does will be fine if he shot up a couple of inches. It didn't hurt CJ's or AD's functionality as ball players.

    A lot of scrolling but AD was the eighth biggest growth spurt and CJ was the second biggest.
