Johnny Juzang (Half Vietnemese projected 2nd round) - Leading scorer on UCLA. UCLA is ranked top 10. Yet is 3rd ranked prospect on UCLA. The #1 ranked prospect is a black player shooting <30% and scoring 3.0 ppg. Why?

Zach Edey (Half Chinese, projected late 2nd round) - The most dominant center in college. shooting over 70%FG. scoring >15ppg. PER is by far the best on the team. Yet, still only ranked 3rd on team. Why?

Lee HyunJung (Korean projected 2nd round) - Perhaps one of the best shooters in college. Over 50% FG, over 40% 3-point FG. Leading Davidson in scoring and to best record in decades. only 2nd rounder. why?


Black players with lesser production are getting rated higher on NBA drafts. Stereotypes continues.

Johnny Juzang has declared for the 2022 NBA draft. Projected to be a 2nd rounder if drafted.

Now we await, Kai Sotto, Zach Edey, Lee HyunJung, and possibly a CBA'er.

Zach Edey decides to return back to school.

Kai Sotto declares for NBA draft. He had better stats than other NBA prospects in the Australian league, but yet, those prospects are still rated higher in latest mock drafts. It doesn't help to be Asian.

Lee HyunJung has declared for NBA draft and will attend the NBAGLeague camp for NBA scouts. This is the most Asians entry in an NBA draft. (3).

Fanbo Zeng will attend the NBA Draft Combine to be held this week. It is unclear if he has declared for the draft. He could just be testing the waters.

Johnny Juzang did not get drafted. But his teammate who was a bench player who barely averaged 4ppg, did get drafted in the first round.

Fanbo Zeng did not get drafted. He barely got any playing time in the G-League.

Lee HyunJung did not get drafted eventhough many drafted players had lesser stats.

Kai Sotto did not get drafted. eventhough a couple other players from the Australian league with lesser stats did get drafted.

Asian discrimination is still alive and well. I'm done watching the NBA. I'm moving on to other sports. I'm pretty sure many of you have done the same.

Eventhough exhibit 10 contracts are not guaranteed, good to see Fanbo getting a chance. likely to play in Summer League.


As for Kai Sotto, he got a black agent who don't care too much to see the first full blooded Filipino in the NBA. His agent has declined all summer league offers and is okay with Sotto going back to the Australian league. With Kai Sotto going back to the Australian league, his agent will get more commission money than if Sotto played in Summer League for peanuts.
