Part three of this series features KD breaking down the games of Jordan McCabe, Bol Bol, Mac McClung, Andre Ball, and Tyler Herro.
First, Durant looks at the likeness of Jordan McCabe. KD explains how his patience with the pick & roll helps him with his hop-step jumper getting the open shots he needs. Durant Emphasizes that McCabe’s craftiness and ability to settle his team down is what his team needs to win. “I am impressed, I need to follow him more” KD finishes off saying.
Next, Durant breaks down the 7’4 prospect known as Bol Bol. Right off the bat KD jokes around saying “Yeah, at 7’4 he can basically finish anything…There we go again, another one of them, a 7’4 player who can do all of this outside the paint.” Durant explains that he will keep learning the “right way to play basketball” wherever he goes next in his career.
Mac McLung is next up for Durant. KD makes sure to emphasize that this kid is an ATHLETE. He explains that every team needs a guy who can get to the bucket as easy as McClung.”He is one of those guys who is going to be vital to a team because of his athleticism,” Durant goes on to say. Last he explains that “He(McClung) brings a lot of excitement to the game, you need that energy.”
Next, he breaks down a player with a familiar name in Andre Ball, the ball brothers cousin. KD says that his long arms and athleticism allows him to defend a lot of positions, “Everyone is going to need one of those guys.”
Last, KD breaks down the game of Tyler Herro. He jokes around saying that since Herro is going to Kentucky, he is automatically a pro. “Skilled, gotta have skill if you want to last.” He says that is basketball a player has to be able to shoot, dribble, and pass, and Herro can do them all.
Being a man who has already played against the best of the best, KD is able to break down and find similarities between these High school prospects and NBA players.
