Checking out the Draft Cats with NBA.com’s PlayerMetrics tool

Believe it or not, we’re only ten days away from the NBA Draft. Draft talk will ramp up considerably in the next week and a half, and today, I stumbled upon NBA.com’s PlayerMetrics tool, which shows you each of a player’s measurements in one neat little graphic.

Six of the Draft Cats have PlayerMetrics profiles (Karl did not attend the NBA Combine), and they’re worth taking a look at for the faces each make in the 360-degree camera alone. For instance, Trey Lyles looks way more impressive than Devin Booker, who looks like he just saw a White Walker:

Dakari Johnson looks like he’s about to pelt somebody in dodgeball. Drawing inspiration from the famous 2014 dodgeball fight?

Aaron Harrison is catching flies on the way up to the basket:

And then there’s Willie, who’s being typical chill Willie, here for his measurements, just being trill, not stressing over anything in life:

In all seriousness, it’s a neat feature. You can also compare the draft prospects to John Wall, Klay Thompson, or DeMarcus Cousins. Since Devin Booker is so often compared to Thompson, here’s their measurements side by side:

Pretty freaking close.
