If you had to pick one, who do you go with?
I ask because they are next to each other in a lot of mocks.
How much better of a prospect was/ is MKG compared to Porter?
Last 5 games: 20ppg, 8rpg, 2.4apg, 2.4spg on 49FG%
He will not bust for sure because of his defense and his ceiling is decently high considering he's a late bloomer.
Also, I didn't know he was only 3 months older than Bennett even though he is a Soph.
Porter is a terrific all around player that isn't great at one thing, but is very good at a bunch of things. He looks like a solid 6-10 year player on a team ala Tayshaun Prince. Zellers game I'm not a fan of, he needs to show more all around skills instead of always cutting to the basket as big men at the next level will kill him if that's all he can do
Everyone talks about Otto Porter's all around game,but few people talk about his ability to score from almost every ange his ball handling and outside shot....I like that Tayshaun Prince comparision....
Zeller might be the most skilled big in the nation..If he was a little more stronger,a better rebounder or had a better perimeter game...I think he would be the consensus top pick..

Should just work on his face up game. He needs to turn and face. He needs to make his mid range J water and then he should continue to attack off the bounce once the J is falling.
I think that's what he'll do in the NBA. He'll be much more of a face up, PnR, PnP big than a back to the basket big in the halfcourt. He's got a nice stroke and he has the speed to blow by. He's also a solid passer as well.
I like Zeller's speed advantage vs either big position more than I like Porter's speed advantage vs SFs. Both are low risk players though.
