Draft Notes

An elite level athlete with big upside, who can jump through the roof.

A beast of an athlete. Stanley can fly out of the gym and has a ton of power. He could go down as one of the best dunkers of all time. His burst and insane bounce are unmatched (this side of Zion).

Has all the tools to develop into a complete player and is putting in work to round out his game. Is becoming a more disciplined defender and his athletic ability gives him a clear advantage over most opponents.

Sees the floor well and has a great feel for one-hand passes off the dribble. Uses his quickness to get into the lane and draw defenders, then finds the open man. Has much improved handles but still refining this area of his game.

Has nice elevation and form on his shot. Can hit all sorts of turnaround and step-back jumpers, using his elite athletic ability to get room, or just rise over opponents.

Plays to win. Has good competitive fire and seems to have a drive to be one of the greats.

Can be reckless driving into the lane and needs to learn not over drive. Needs to tighten up his handles and work on his left hand.

Is old for his class, born in 1999.

Doesn’t have great length.


Comparisons

  • He’s like a stronger Latrell Sprewell.
