: He�s an athlete. Nothing more.
When he left Harvard Westlake I said that it was actually good for Cassius and it was good for Harvard Westlake. I thought that Terren Frank was a loss for HW. But Stanley, not so much.
I saw a Sierra Canyon game where Washington (Ohio State) and Pippen Jr. handled the ball most of the game and defended the other guards. Stanley looked good.
Well Stanley was guarding Nico Mannion of Earl Watson Elite. Nico Mannion looked as if he was playing against his little brother at a family pickup game. Yes, Stanley is taller. But that didn't matter. I'm also here to say that jumping alone is not athletism. So I'm not entirely sure if Stanley is uber athletic. I know that I said that he was. But I might change my mind. Even when he switch off on Nico. Whoever he was guarding was told to score. And it wasn't just that game and this isn't the first year that I'm seeing this.
He can't slide is feet. He's not a pg and the coaches look silly playing him there. But the backcourt is with the kid from Taft and you might as well put Stanley there by default.
If Stanley played the wing and tried to defend he'd be very good. But he's playing outside of his physical capabilities. I do think that if he had a good coach that he'd be good.
