Judging by stats, he might not get on a college level team

I am not sure if that is him, but that guy shot under 40% on FG's last season. Anyone with his athleticism should be shooting a super high percentage and most of his shots should be dunks at the rim.

The hometown for that guy is in FL, and those dunk highlights said the kid played in GA.

He sure can get up. His hand seemed to be near the top of the backboard on the receiving end of some of those lobs.

That guy got absolutely dunked on at the end! He seemed to be quite embarrassed!

so? I can not remember the kid's name, but he was 6'7", and played for Memphis about 6-7 years ago. He had a 51" vertical, and I saw a couple highlights of him dunking at that same height.

Dude never played a minute after college, and didn't really play much there.

Jumping is great, but there are 1000 factors in basketball. Being good at only one won't get you anywhere

This. The "next Shaq" should change his name. Kid is only 6'4. While this makes his dunks more impressive, it completely changes the nature of the word "Shaq."

Beasted86- na, that isn't the correct Shaq Johnson. The one we are discussing is in GA. I could not find his stats, but even the article says he had much to improve on.

Having dunking ability like that can only guarantee you a spot on the Harlem Globtrotters(or the Washington Generals)

You'd think anyone with that tremendous athleticism could be a great defender too if they focused on shutting down an opponent.

I saw him blocking some shots in those highlights, but he should be able to lock down on guys with that athleticism. If he works on that end of the court he certainly should be able to play college hoops on the D1 level.

pretty impressive dunks but thats all I see.. I hope he doesnt think he can dominate in the NCCA or NBA with impressive dunks.. I need to see more to his game

It's not the same kid. I saw him play against my school this year and he wasn't the best player on the court. He has ups but he's not a great all-around player. I think all his points against us were dunks.

depends on how hard he works....raw athleticism is a great starting point though, you can teach fundamentals and defense, you can't teach athleticism

We might see another player of Shaq's caliber, but we'll never see a top 10 all time player with his personality again. He was one of a kind.

Jumping ability is impressive, but its not anything I haven't seen before.

The video bored me honestly. Basketball needs more skills, not height and athleticism.
