Agree. I think he could have played in the nba if he put the work in. Good body, good touch, but never took that next step. Really good college player though

Eason a Clark are two different animals when comparing the two. They have similar athleticism but much different skills. Gary was a little more fundamentally disciplined. Eason has a lot more skills. Gary didn't have much in the way of dribbling or outside shooting as a frosh but good interior game. Much like Tre Scott Gary didn't really blossom until late in terms of shooting or perimeter play. Eason can do it all now but he's being asked to be selective right now to not make mistakes. Eason can play D and rebound and would probably be better at both under a different coach.

So overall I think Eason has a head start...because the skills are already there. He can jump out the gym like the others. Has the length. etc

Nah Cronin made him put on weight. I remember one poster thought Clark was nba 3 and D from beginning. Clark ran the break beautiful in high school. Iíll say Clark had him on handles and passing. Only thing Eason got is athleticism on Clark. Eason needs hit weights though, he struggles making layups and put backs.

Oh okay one poster thought something? Eason has Clark on handles today let alone freshman year. Gary was great! Love the guy but I guess not everyone was watching but that one guy.

Clark was phenomenal but he was not a play maker early on and was even limited by ball skills as a sr.
