You can kind of see why Jonathan Isaac went 6th overall. He’s basketball-player-looking as heck! Just a jet-black supertall dude who is made out of arms and legs and hairs. If you did the draft based only on how much the draftees looked like Harlem Globetrotters, this dude would go first overall. No doubt. For those wondering, Luke Kennard would not get drafted at all.
It’s early, and I haven’t seen much of him, but I got some slight Brandon Ingram fibes from this Isaac dude. I think it’s the shooting form. And the emaciatedness. I also got some Manute Bol vibes. Those had to do more with his legginess than anything. And the blocked shots.
On a related note, have arenas around the NBA turned up the sensitivity on their rim microphones this year? I feel like I’m hearing a lot more stuff from people under the rim. Isaac, after blocking Josh Jackson’s weak stuff, told him what he thought about the situation, and it was not very DownToBuck-like. Try to avoid swearing, please. Kids watch these videos.
