Feels like Emoni Bates and Chet Holmgren would go 1 and 2 if they could enter this year’s NBA Draft.

We’ve witnessed two of the best high school prospects in Emoni Bates and Chet Holmgren tonight. In a year full of craziness, it was fun to watch a fun matchup like this one.
If there’s one thing we can take away from the matchup? The future of basketball is in amazing hands.

Emoni Bates is the best player regardless of class, he’d probably go number 1 this year, and Jaden Hardy to me is a close second, I’m aware they’re not in the same class, just high school in general

Emoni Bates is definitely better than Michael Porter Jr at the same stage. He does everything better except rebound. https://t.co/NT8P720E8m

Cade Cunningham, Chet Holmgren and Emoni Bates as back to back to back No. 1 picks is going to be a whole lot of fun.
