Jabari Brown, like Jontay, just didn't have high end athleticism.

What he did possess was an elite skill: shooting.

The rest of his game wasn't gonna improve enough to where he was going to get drafted. You can't just magically be a better athlete. So he took a shot with his one NBA level skill.

This is the disconnect people have between who benefits from returning. You have to have something that is translatable to the NBA that can improve by returning. Usually that means adding a skill like improved shooting range.

But a lot of players have certain limitations that will hold them back no matter what. Jontay, even healthy, is never gonna be a lottery pick because of his athleticism, so any draft pick is a good one for him. It's unfortunate he did come back, because he was given a 1st round grade last year. He hurt his pro chances by returning.

     I'm surprised - alstl MU - 5/14 15:07:17
          It will be an issue and he is likely a 2nd rounder. - tgr MU - 5/14 15:15:04

          What would've happened if they stayed in college?(nm) - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 12:52:25
               They probably see their draft stock slip a bit and end - tgr MU - 5/14 13:00:50
                    Like Demarre Carroll for example - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:04:04
                         What about Jordan Clarkson. I'm betting his career earnings - tgr MU - 5/14 13:16:24
                              Clarkson earned a degree from MU before leaving - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:20:16
                                   He isn't a good example because he proves you wrong.(nm) - tgr MU - 5/14 13:22:47

                         You're missing a key piece: "His opportunity and playing - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 13:11:03
                              Not missing it, we are just having different conversations - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:14:51
                                   "Being drafted" and "having an NBA career" are related. - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 13:23:23
                                   Having the most successful career is making the most money - tgr MU - 5/14 13:22:26
                                        Disagree entirely with that premise (nm) - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:24:14
                                             Of course you would. Because once again, it proves your - tgr MU - 5/14 13:29:29

                                                            As an aside, by that definition among the top 25 players - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 14:59:23
                                                                 I imagine you probably need to normalize based on salaries - tgr MU - 5/14 15:27:10
                                                            Ok, well I disagree entirely with that premise (nm) - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 14:54:31

               Jontay had a worse case scenario - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/14 12:40:39
                    The scenario you are referring to is the NBA draft - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 12:47:48
                         Jontay stayed because he wasn’t ready for the pro life - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/14 12:50:13
                              I'm sure he is well equipped now - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 12:53:03
                    Wasn't Hunter projected as a 2nd rounder last year? - StaleyTiger MU - 5/14 12:46:13
                         No Hunter was projected in round 1 - wu-tangtiger MU - 5/14 12:48:43
                              He wasn't projected in the first round in any of these mocks - StaleyTiger MU - 5/14 12:57:10
               Review the Daniel Orton part (#29 overall selection) - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 12:37:52

                         I can only read the story he is telling about what - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:00:53
                              Agreed. And as you'll note, he doesn't even say he - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 13:14:00
                    Had he stayed in college, would he magically become a - StaleyTiger MU - 5/14 12:51:58

                              "Potential" is an unknown quantity. - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 13:05:47
                                   That is a commonly held misconception - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:12:20
                                        See above. You're missing a key assumption. - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 13:20:09

                                                       Well, the article I linked is telling the opposite story - FIJItiger MU - 5/14 13:28:14
                                                            Yes, it's telling a story; it prescribes nothing. - Mizzmi27 MU - 5/14 13:36:26
                    What did he do with all that money. Must have spent it on - Uncle John MU - 5/14 12:42:47
