Luka Doncic will be viewed as one of the top players in the upcoming NBA Draft if he chooses to leave the EuroLeague, but he has not yet committed to doing so. I should have just rested. He added he is now "100 percent" after not feeling that way during his final high school seasons. All that compensation [for the injury] in the gym just [made it] worse and worse. "(Experts) had me as the No. 1 player in high school, but I didn't even feel like I was at 100 percent, but I do now, so I'm just excited to show everybody the player that I am, and I'm still the best player". Porter Jr. said his doctors have reassured him there's no risk for re-injury and he'd have no problem sharing his medical records with teams, though that's up to his agent. "I just got to keep up with my stretching, my core exercises".
"I knew I wasn't going to put on a show, or be the Mike that they saw in a few months", he said in front of a horde of assembled media on the West side of Chicago.
Porter Jr. knows his injury undercut the best parts of his college career, and he knows teams have legitimate questions about his long-term health. Before Bamba, only four players had ever cracked 7-foot-8 - current Utah Jazz All-Star Rudy Gobert in 2013, former Mississippi State center John Riek in 2008, and 2006 No. 10 overall pick Mouhamed Saer Sene. I'm not taking anything away from them.
And if people don't believe his claims now, Porter said they will "soon". "Trae [Young], DeAndre [Ayton], Marvin [Bagley III], but this is just a step in my process to become the best player I can be". "I do more, but I require less, both on the court and off the court". Whichever team takes him will have to feel solid about his potential to be a starting point guard at the National Basketball Association level, because his ceiling doesn't appear to be much higher than that.
