Dior looks very young physically. Once he matures in that regard, going to be scary for the competition.
Dior IS very young.
Physically, and otherwise.


But I agree, adding physical maturity to his insane skills will make him an absolute nightmare for opponents when he’s older.

That said - Dior is a generational talent.
Like Pearl was.

And Pearl was not a plus athlete, and had very much a below the rim game.
But he had insane skills.
Which is why he dominated in HS and college, but not in the NBA.

So, while ideally Dior can gain physically, it’s not mandatory for his success in college.

What held Pearl back in the NBA was the lack of a reliable jump shot. It was a concern before the draft and it ended up justified. Too big, too strong, and too good with the ball for college guys to stop him, but not in the NBA. If he had been a good shooter with a true jump shot, he would have starred in the NBA, too.

Watching the Pearl bringing the ball upcourt using an unbreakable string of behind the back crossovers was an unforgettable sight. Never seen it before or since.

posting in the gear constantly is better than a mention in the bio i think

Did you see the look on his face in that video someone posted awhile back, the one when he was in 7th grade and watching JB walk by. Kid loves Cuse and wants to see us back to where we were before he makes his mark in the NBA. Love seeing it.
Yes. Cuse is literally his dream school. He admires JB and GMAC and wants to leave a legacy like Melo here. He grew up a big syracuse fan.

Thats all we need to know. If he plays college basketball he’s not playing anywhere other than Central NY
