There were other athletes who were more athletic that we could not contain and had no answer. Which would you view as the better player, the one that you couldn't stop and beat you or the one you held in check and lost to you?
I am disappointed in you D4. Hard to correlate one AAU game for an overall judgement of a kid. Could you please name these other athletes? Are hinting that you think they are better than Kennard?

I watched him, in the NBA playoffs, get to the middle of paint, whenever he wanted to. That is all that needs to be said. But thank the sweet lord you locked him up at the Kingdom center. Yeah, good player. Cant start for Dunbar or even D4 AAU team i guess.

Not saying these guys are better, just more athletic and more potent vs our caliber of athlete.

Trey Lyles- currently at Denver
Trevon Bluiett- New Orleans
Leron Black- from Memphis currently playing in Argintina I think
James Blackman Jr- playing in Italy

Kennard would be next on my list of impressive players we played against. Not at all saying he is not the best, just did not impress me as much as these others.

This thread always seems to deliver LOLs kid is going to be a starter in the NBA next year, not some other pro league no one has ever heard of, but he still is just average. He is going to make over 13 million on his rookie contract.

Privilege can get you into Yale and Stanford but I don't think it gets you into the NBA. The vetting is a bit more in the open.

May simply just be a failure in the way some communicate. There is a big difference between an average great player and an average player. I think most rational people would acknowledge Luke is an elite player. How elite is the question?
